What makes this tour special

Discover the timeless charm of Greenwich, a gem from history that carries contemporary charm. This full day tour invites you to discover the stories of maritime adventures, royal intrigues and artistic excellence, while enjoying your surroundings and the comfort of an iconic London Taxi!

On your private full-day tour, you will:

Our full-day driving tour starts with a comfort pickup in an iconic London Taxi for a journey to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Greenwich. En route, swing by the Mayflower Pub, a hidden gem, surrounded by cobbled streets, and spot the original 1620 mooring point of the vessel which transported the Pilgrim Fathers to the New World. 

Step aboard the legendary Cutty Sark, the world’s sole surviving tea clipper, and embark on a 45-minute escorted visit. Immerse yourself in history as you marvel at the ship’s unique design, and hear the stories of her voyages.

Enjoy a short walk along the charming riverside as you make your way to the historic Royal Greenwich Park, where 17th-century landscapes frame spectacular views across the River Thames to London’s modern skyline, alongside the statue of General James Woolf.

Your accredited cabbie-guide will tell you the spine-chilling stories of Greenwich, including two bombings in the park - one even featured in an Alfred Hitchcock thriller. 

Stroll through historic Greenwich Market, first opened in 1737, a chance to pick up some gift shopping or even stock up on some sweet treats. Your Guide will tell the stories of St. Alfege Church, where an Archbishop of Canterbury was martyred at the altar. 

After a delectable lunch (cost of lunch not included), visit the Royal Observatory, home to the world-famous Meridian Line where you can have a souvenir picture with a foot in the west and one foot in the east. This must-see attraction also houses the Great Equatorial Telescope, the world’s earliest public time signal the Time Ball, and be mesmerised by the panoramic views of London through the Camera Obscura.

At Queen's House, Britain’s first-ever classical building and masterpiece of 17th-century architecture, take a step back in time to the birthplace of King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I. Enjoy views fit for royalty across the lawns to the riverbank, and fans of the Netflix blockbuster Bridgerton will recognise the elegant colonnades as a filming location.

End your memorable day with a comfortable trip to your hotel in London, reflecting on the unique experiences.

This full-day tour of Greenwich promises a perfect blend of history, culture, and scenic beauty, providing an immersive and engaging experience for all. Whether you’re a history buff, a lover of art, or simply seeking an escape, this tour has something special for everyone.  

Please note: Guides are not allowed to guide inside venues but they will escort you during the visit.
