Your London shopping tour begins at Borough Market, one of the oldest markets in the city. We’ll start with a barista made coffee of your choice or tea if you prefer, then we’ll make a beeline to one of our favourite stalls, to sample gourmet bites and also chocolates, originally crafted for Gordon Ramsey.
You will also have the opportunity to purchase additional food and drinks at your own discretion, as we explore the market and the possibility of sampling the wares of cheesemongers, butchers, spice merchants, bakers and more. After the market, we’ll continue to explore the cobbled streets and winding alleyways in search of some of London’s hidden gems. We’ll pass historic sites including Southwark Cathedral, the ruins of Winchester Palace and Sir Francis Drake’s famous ship “The Golden Hinde”.
With a unique view of London Bridge, we’ll also get to the bottom of its famous rhyme.

You will also get to see Shakespeare’s The Globe Theatre and hear tales of the famous bard, only yards away from where he once lived.
We’ll walk along the Southbank of the River Thames where you’ll have plenty of opportunities to take pictures from some of the city’s best vantage points. At various spots, you will get to see London’s famous street performers in action. The magnificent, imposing structure of The Tate Modern is where the tour finishes with a perfect view of St Paul’s Cathedral across the river.
