Here at London Magical Tours nothing makes us happier than hearing how much you enjoyed your tour with us. We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone and share one of our favourite letters to Santa Claus that was filled out as part of our London Christmas Tours.
We would like to wish everyone a Magical Christmas and very happy 2015!
Dear Santa Claus,
The bestest thing I have seen in amazing London today was beautiful Buckingham Palace. I chose beautiful Buckingham Palace because it was fun seeing the solgers do there march and seeing the special flag on top of the beautiful buckingham palace. My most favourite part was seeing the lovely horses taking a carafe on the back. I loved seeing amazing London!

A great amount of work goes on behind the scenes at London Magical Tours to ensure we are continuously reaching the high standards we set ourselves to provide an award winning sightseeing experience.
All this effort is really made worthwhile when it comes to receiving appreciative post tour feedback. There is no greater satisfaction for us than when a client takes the time to write in to express their gratitude.
To this end we are introducing a new monthly feature, a spotlight on one of our guests to tell us about their sightseeing experience. No gimmicks, no special effects. Just a simple review in their own words. Simply click on the video link below and enjoy in full HD:
You may not have even picked it up in the news but Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday was in fact yesterday April the 21st!
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary was born on the 21st of April 1926. Known simply as ‘Her Majesty’ to you and I, the Queen is fortunate to be able to celebrate her birthday twice a year; on the 21st of April and on a Saturday in June when she celebrates her coronation ceremony in her annual birthday parade, officially known as ‘The Trooping of the Colour’.
The ceremony occurs on a sunnier Saturday in June, where the Queen is joined by members of the Royal Family, invited guests as well as members of the public. The parade is carried out by foot guards and the calvary on Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall, which is located close to Buckingham Palace here in London.
Next time you’re visiting London as part of our London Tours, make sure to see Horse Guards Parade, it is one of the largest open spaces in central London. Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, this famous birthday venue of the monarch was also used as a one off venue during the 2012 London Olympic games – for the beach volleyball!
