Guided London Walking Tours

Welcome to Love London Tours!

We are a small friendly group of hugely talented Qualified London Guides.  We all love guiding and showing guests around this wonderful city.  We don’t only guide, we go the extra mile to ensure that your whole time in London is a truly remarkable experience. Our walks are carefully curated to showcase not only the famous iconic landmarks, but we also go off the beaten track, to show you places that only the locals know about. 

Our tours are family friendly and we can also offer private or corporate tours.  We keep group sizes small to maximise your enjoyment and our consistently great reviews speak for themselves.  A recent couple said: “Caroline became a friend on our tour. She went over and above throughout.  She gave us more helpful information then, on top of already having given us our bearings in London.  This tour was the perfect way to start off our trip to London. You will feel connected and cared for. From the bottom of our hearts thank you for making our trip so special. Thank you! ” – James and Jackie Otto, Wisconsin, United States. August 2019

Our tours encapsulate the very best that London has to offer and we can’t wait to share it with you!



The Christmas Lights in London really are the best in the world and London is completely transformed in winter with a dazzling display of Christmas trees and sparkling lights. On this small group walk we will see the very best of the lights as we walk through not just the famous extravagant displays on Regent Street and Carnaby Street but we go off the beaten track into hidden alleyways the tourists never see. Along the way you’ll learn about the history of the buildings that are illuminated in all their glory and have plenty of time to take some amazing photos.

Not only will we see some of the best lights in London but along the way we will hear about some of our best loved and most important Christmas traditions like; why is Boxing Day so called, who invented Christmas Cards, why did Christmas trees become so popular during the Victorian era, why does lovely Norway send the good people of London a fabulous Christmas tree every year and why did Turkeys wear boots on their way to market and much much more!

A superb guided walk with a qualified London Guide Caroline or Phil.

Wonderful afternoon spent touring with Caroline and the group. My family and I left knowing more than we expected about the Royal sites of London! Caroline was amazing and went above and beyond our expectations.” Alex and family August 2019


For many Americans, US history begins with the Mayflower – the tiny ship which carried the Mayflower Pilgrims to America 400 years ago. But for Londoners, it goes back much further. The landing at Plymouth in 1620 was the culmination of decades of exploration, dedication and investment.

On our walk, you’ll follow in the footsteps of the founders of America. The intrepid explorers who made settlement possible, and the wealthy merchants who raised the cash.  Visit London’s medieval seat of government, and ancient churches where pioneering colonists worshipped.  Take in a glorious 17th century hall where a Pilgrim leader was apprenticed, and which spearheaded a propaganda campaign for American colonisation.  See the sites of grim prisons where Edward Winslow and other Puritans languished – and which transported orphans and prisoners to the New World.  Visit haunts of the Native American princess, Pocahontas, and the swashbuckling Captain John Smith.  And travel with us to the famous Mayflower pub, close to where the ship set sail.  See the burial place of Captain Christopher Jones, and sample a pint of the Mayflower’s special Scurvy Ale. 

Meeting point: Exit Bank tube (Exit 3) and you’ll be in the forecourt of The Royal Exchange. The Meeting point is by the The Royal Exchange War Memorial.

Postcode is : EC3V 3LR

Nearest tube is: Bank Station (Central and Northern Lines) Exit 3

The walk in the City will last 2 hours.  We will then travel by train for 20 minutes to Rotherhithe to visit The Mayflower Pub for a pint of Scurvy Ale, which is a lot nicer than it sounds!

If you don’t see a date suitable for you, or for a private tour, then just contact Pam or I. We are flexible with dates.
