Starting and finishing on the Strand, the Heart of London route covers some of London’s best contemporary sites and historical landmarks. We’ll move from Fleet Street, the former news district, past the fantastic St Paul’s Cathedral, into the Sothern tip of North London and back through the heart of Camden borough and Westminster. The 10-kilometre loop also weaves its way through various green spaces, including Coram’s Fields, Lincoln’s Inn Fields and Russell Square. Here you will learn about the history and importance of these sites.
This tour has everything: the buzz of the streets through the city centre, little-known thoroughfares, and amazing photo opportunities. We’ll also go past several excellent museums, attractions and recommend some key places to visit during your stay in London.
