Our London Christmas Lights Tours are the original holiday themed tours, visiting the best of the festive lights in central London, alongside many off the beaten path locations.

Remember that unlike other tour offerings, this is not just the usual London landmarks. Our professional tour guides will take you out of the chauffeur driven sightseeing vehicles to hear the stories and learn about the traditions behind what it means to spend Christmas in London – the perfect holiday treat.

Easter is an egg-cellent time to be in London. Get ready for an egg-ceptional Easter blog update (Ed comment: ok – at this point we had to step in. To ensure quality of material we had to scale down the egg related one liners – they’re not all they’re cracked up to be!)

From indulging in chocolates and easter egg hunts to sightseeing over the bank holiday weekend, there is something to do for everyone. Whats more, the first Bank-Holiday weekend of the year in the UK falls over the Easter weekend  – a great time to unwind and soak in the spring sunshine.

Blessings from Her Majesty

We are delighted to share a lovely letter that our director Ana Cartland recently received from Her Majesty The Queen in response to the wonderful works of art made by the young visitors on our tours during 2016.

Earlier this year Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her 90th birthday and London Magical Tours helped mark the special occasion by showing Her Majesty some of the many wonderful examples of art work made on our London tours for children.

Our expert team of family friendly guides love to interact with young visitors, not just teaching them about the history of London and England but also making it a fun and memorable experience. Our specialist children’s program focuses on the use of art and colour to help with learning – many wonderful examples are frequently published on the blog.

We are delighted to share The Queen’s response below:

A big thank you to all our young visitors who submitted entries. We would like to wish Her Majesty continued health and many happy returns from everyone at London Magical Tours.

Let the planning for the 100th birthday celebrations begin!

In London and throughout the UK, we celebrate the occasion by lighting the night with spectacular firework displays!
