Your day in London is totally customizable and the itinerary for your half- or full-day tour will be tailored to suit your needs and interests. Before your tour, your private guide will contact you to discuss the things you want to see, so that your logistics can be arranged in advance.
On the day of your tour, meet your guide at your hotel or preferred central location, then set off by whatever means of transport is required. Transport, meals and entrance fees are payable at your own expense.
Perhaps visit some of the city must-sees like Tower of London or the ever-inspiring Big Ben – London’s architectural icon — or head to the Shard for sweeping panoramic views over London. Alternatively, focus on the more offbeat London neighborhoods such as Soho, Camden Town or Brick Lane, and ask your guide to introduce you to the spots that the tourist maps miss.
It is illegal to die in the Palace of Westminster—largely because then you'd be eligable for an official State funeral. (This law was voted the most absurd in Britain, narrowly beating one in Liverpool that bans women from going topless in public—unless they work in a tropical fish shop. It is also legal for a woman to bite off a man's nose if he kisses her against her will. Like these? Here are more silly British laws.)
The Palace of Westminster has 1,000 rooms, 100 staircases, 11 courtyards, a hair salon, a rifle-shooting range, 6 restaurants, and 8 bars (where the prices are subsidized by taxpayers).
Big Ben chimes in the key of E.
In 1945, a flock of birds landed on the minute hand of Big Ben; their combined weight pushed back time by 5 minutes.
