Westminster, Covent Garden, Soho: London’s Iconic Heart

This 3 hour adventure provides an adjustable overview of Westminster's grandeur, Covent Garden's vibrance, Soho's edge, and St James's prestige. It flexibly suits families, seniors, professionals and first-timers seeking a taste of London's celebrated neighbourhoods.

We begin at Big Ben, an iconic global landmark, capturing memorable photos by Westminster's imposing Houses of Parliament. Strolling through regal St James's Park, we breathe in the fresh air while admiring its floral beauty.

Onwards to Trafalgar Square with its soaring Nelson's Column, then into the bright lights of Leicester Square. Next is a foray into Soho's lively streets lined with bespoke boutiques, aromas of global cuisines, and an immersion in colourful Chinatown.

We culminate in Covent Garden, watching street performers command the piazza outside the stately Royal Opera House before getting lost in the Apple Market's winding alleys.

Throughout, we'll tailor the route and pace to your unique interests. Discover London's history, culture and energy on this adjustable walk revealing the city's vibrant core. Just advise how to personalise it for you!
