UNESCO World Heritage Site Greenwich tour and Thames River cruise

Tour the UNESCO world heritage London district of Greenwich. Enjoy private guided tours inside the Royal naval college's famous Painted Hall, see the National Maritime museum, Cutty Sark clipper ship, and stand either side of the Prime Meridian of the world.

  • Discover the story of Greenwich Mean Time
  • Learn about navigation and exploration
  • See the finest dining hall in Britain

Travel by taxis, tubes and your own two feet. Explore the city like a real Londoner with an expert private tour guide by your side. Your guide will meet you in the lobby of your hotel and conduct the tour using different modes of transport, avoid groups, and manage everything. It’s the eco-friendly, exhilarating and flexible way to experience one of the world’s greatest cities.

Discover Maritime London

Use the tube and tour London's old docks with your guide. Hear stories of pirates, crime and grittier times. London's Docklands was the busiest and most significant on earth, now those watery basins, warehouses and industrial sites have been re-invented into a gleaming new city. 

Take a walking tour of Greenwich visiting the old palace and the Royal Observatory. Stand either side of longitude zero the prime meridian of the world and discover what it all means? Tour the National Maritime Museum and see the highlights such as Lord Nelson's Trafalgar coat and the worlds most significant ship in a bottle. Visit the Painted Hall, the most beautiful dining hall in the western world, decorated by stunning paintings telling the story of Royal Naval supremacy. This breath-taking work of restored art covers 40,000 sq ft and seen in tip-top condition - a must-see for anyone. 

Before you head back to central London, stop for lunch at a pub and see the Cutty Sark and the Queen's House. We can arrange a boat trip back or walk the Thames tunnel and take the tube. I expect the weather may dictate this decision. 

Make the end of your day extra special with a Private Thames Boat Cruise, returning you to Westminster where a car and driver will meet you and whisk you to your hotel.   


Your first time to London? these two tours are ideal for a first time visitor: the Old City of London Tour AND the Royal London Tour.
