Updated: September 2020

With social distancing measures lifted, we are delighted to announce that London Magical Tours is continuing to welcome visitors back to London and the surrounding cities. It is fantastic to hear from so many travellers eager to return and discover the best of the United Kingdom.

With reservations being made in advance, we would like to re-assure all of our guests that hygiene and your safety is of the utmost importance.

To this end, we have introduced the following measures to keep everyone safe:

  • All guests (as well as the tour guide and chauffeur) are to wear masks while touring inside of the vehicle.
  • Tour guides will practice social distancing according to the latest government regulations, maintaining a current distance of 2 metres from guests at all times when guiding outside of the vehicle.
  • Guides and chauffeurs will refrain from shaking hands and making physical contact with guests.
  • Offering visits away from the crowds, including priority fast track entry where available.
  • Private tours are the best way to avoid crowded areas and our tour guides are specialists in going off the beaten path, including behind the scenes opportunities and visits through quiet back streets.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available in all vehicles
  • A thorough sterilisation and clean of vehicles before each and every private tour – all surfaces will be cleaned and wiped down in accordance with latest Covid-19 practices.
  • Any guide or chauffeur with symptoms will be unable to report to work, no matter how mild, with regular Covid-19 testing taking place.

One of the main benefits of a private tour is that you are provided with your very own vehicle. Unlike bus tours, shared tours or visiting London via public transport, our private tours are exclusively for your party and provide a personalised experience to help you enjoy the cities away from the masses.

Visit the London Magical Tours website to plan your trip and book your next London Private Tour.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you all again.


Spring has arrived in London!

The sunshine has finally made its way back to London. Without doubt, the spring and summer seasons are fantastic times of the year to visit the capital and always help make outings and day trips that much better!

So what are we looking forward to over the coming months? Well to begin with, there’s:

– Strawberries and cream at the Wimbledon Lawn tennis club
– UEFA Euro 2016 Football. Its been four years since the last tournament: catch the best matches on big screens all over London or for the more adventurous, pop over to Paris to see the games live with our friends at Paris Magical Tours.
– Music festivals, garden parties and lunches at roof top terrace pubs

– The horse racing season, including Royal Ascot: ladies in fine hats and dresses and gentlemen in tails

– Royal Celebrations: The Trooping of the Colour to celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th birthday and the Order of the Garter ceremony at Windsor Castle: a stunning display of British tradition at its very best.
… and last but not least: more more hours of sunshine goodness!

London will also host for the very first time the London Games Festival. Celebrating everything from culture, art, the  business of games and video games – there is something for everyone including workshops, activities and the largest Monopoly board in Trafalgar Square!

Did you know that the Queen is lucky enough to have 2 birthdays? That’s right: although Her Majesty’s official birthday is in June, the Queen’s actual birthday falls on the 21st April. Look out for gun salutes being fired in Central London to mark the occasion.

Why not book a day out in London and spoil family and friends this Spring 2016? To make sure you have a wonderful experience this Spring, make sure to visit London Magical Tours to find out all about their  fantastic days out.
