London Holiday Lights Tours

London Christmas Tours 2019

 

Our annual Christmas tours are now in full swing!

London is looking more festive than ever this year and we are delighted to hear how much our guests are enjoying discovering the best of the capital’s Christmas lights and decorations on our Magical London Christmas tours.

Our award winning London holiday lights tours return this holiday season from 10th of November 2019 to 6th of January 2020. Much more than just the best of the Christmas lights, the tours go on a special holiday  journey of discovery through the ages, from Dickens and secret Christmas trees, to the Victorian Squares and off the beaten path neighbourhoods from which so many of our festive traditions originate.

This year guests can opt to join one of our scheduled group tours or a private tour for ultimate privacy. Get away from the crowds with your own tour team: your own professional London Magical Tours guide plus in addition, an extra chauffeur, to avoid all parking worries. The tour makes extended stops to go outside of the vehicle with your professional guide, with plenty of opportunities for photographs and optional visits to Hamleys Toy Store, Harrods Christmas World or the traditional Victorian Arcades. Collection and return to your central London hotel or accommodation is included on private tours for the perfect holiday experience.

Experience a Magical Halloween in London

Did you know that the word Halloween or Hallowe’en dates back to about 1745 and comes from the Scottish term of All Hallows’ Eve: the evening before All Saints Day, the 1st of November in the Christian calendar.

Shakespeare in Love – Valentines Day 2019

Hear my soul speak:

The very instant that I saw you, did

My heart fly to your service.

Hamlet, William Shakespeare

It’s February and romance is in the air!

With all its world famous theatres, restaurants and night life, London is one of the most romantic places to spend Valentine’s day.

To make the most of the occasion this year, why not treat your loved one to a private tour of London for a truly memorable experience. This special time of year sees a marked increase in requests for our Evening and Night tours, which can be customised to include special behind the scenes visit to discover the London of the the greatest writer on the theme of love himself – William Shakespeare.

Although Shakespeare was born in Stratford upon Avon, it was in the City of London where he wrote most of his best plays over four hundred years ago: plays which are still being performed today.

Back in 1580 Greater London’s population was c. 200,000 inhabitants, versus almost 14 million today. While much has changed since the end of the Elizabethan period that Shakespeare was writing in, there are still a surprising number of curiosities and off the beaten path locations from the great bard’s time which can be discovered on London Magical Tours’ private London tours, including:

 

  • The Staple Inn, a Tudor building on the south side of High Holborn street, the last surviving Inn of Chancery. It was designated a grade I listed building in 1974.
  • Majestic Southwark Cathedral.  A gothic structure with foundations dating back to the year 1220, Southwark Cathedral is located only a few steps away from where Shakespeare’s original Globe Theatre was located back then. A life size statue of the playwright is found inside the cathedral. Opposite it are stain colour windows that reflect some of his most famous plays including The Tempest and Hamlet. Did you know that one of Shakespeare’s brothers was actually a fine actor?
  • Back in Shakespeare’s time, St. Paul Cathedral existed but without the famous dome built years later by Sir Christopher Wren. That original St Paul’s burnt down as a consequence of the Fire of London of 1666.
  • As part of several off the beaten path Shakespeare locations, is a great little treat in Cripple Gate, the old neighbourhood where Shakespeare actually lived. He has never been forgotten in his neighbourhood and hints of romance exist all around …
