What To Expect

St. James's Park
Your guide will meet you outside St James’s Park Tube Station in the morning and introduce you to two of Greater London's most famous boroughs, the City of Westminster and the City of London. Situated along the River Thames, these boroughs are steeped in history. With the use of visual aids, games, and other activities, a very knowledgeable guide will introduce the kids to the important buildings and iconic symbols of this part of London. This tour has been designed to be both educational and fun!

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Westminster Abbey
The first stop is Westminster Abbey, the magnificent Gothic abbey church next to the Palace of Westminster and the most important religious building in all of the United Kingdom. This church is where Britain's kings and queens are traditionally crowned and also where they are eventually buried.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Big Ben
Next, your guide will take you to see Big Ben and the Palace of Westminster. The Palace of Westminster is home to the two houses of the British Parliament, the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Together with Elizabeth Tower, more commonly known as Big Ben after its main bell, it constitutes an iconic landmark of London and the United Kingdom in general, and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Downing Street
You will then visit Downing Street, the location of the official residence and offices of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdon at number 10, as well as that of the Chancellor of the Exchequer number 11.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Buckingham Palace
Just a short walk away from Downing Street is Buckingham Palace, official London residence and administrative headquarters of the monarch of the United Kingdom. You will know if the Queen is in residence or not by looking at the flag flying above the Palace. If you see the Union Flag, then the Queen is not present. If you see the Royal Standard, she is in residence. On Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, the amazing spectacle of the Changing of the Guard can be seen, as long as the weather is fine.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

St. Paul's Cathedral
Finally, you will take the worlds oldest metro system, the London Underground, from the City of Westminster to the City of London, home to the world famous St. Paul's Cathedral, which you will be able to admire from the outside. London was once a Roman settlement which dates back to the 1st Century AD. The City is the site of the most ancient part of Greater London and was originally named Londinium. You will also be able to see sections of the old London Wall, fortifications built by the Romans at the time of the great Roman empire to protect the city from marauders.

This is a tour the whole family will enjoy and your guide will be happy to customize the itinerary for you if you wish.

A really kid's friendly tour
ILikeThisOne, 18-09-2019
We recently booked a 'Best of London' tour for families with London Tours For Kids and Families. The booking process was very easy and we even got to agree on some itinerary adjustments, so that we could accommodate some specific places (and some special kids' requirements) into the tour. We were lucky enough to have Dan assigned as our guide. He was very knowledgeable and incredibly fun! We visited the 'most wanted' places and we also learnt very interesting stories and fun facts about London. This tour was not only a great introduction to the city and its history, but it was also the best way to cover the two main neighborhoods (Westminster and City, including the changing of the Guard), in one single morning. We are very happy to have done it and we highly recommend it!
