It’s great to see the sights of London, but it takes time to make your way around on foot. Unless you have weeks to spare, it’s not practical to go everywhere without transport.
In a minibus, you can visit the best places in London with like-minded people. You’ll often find that you can see some hidden gems in the city, and make new friends who share your interests.
Here are five great minibus tours you can take in London.
1. Hampstead Village
Known as the ‘original urban village’, Hampstead is one of London’s best-kept secrets. Nestling on the edge of central London, this part of the city is known for upmarket boutique shops, beautiful historic buildings, being a meeting place for those interested in the arts and the crowning jewel in the area; Hampstead Heath.
2. The Markets of London
Depending on which day of the week you decide to take your minibus trip in London, you can combine visits to different markets. You can buy absolutely anything and everything on a London market; fruit, antiques, clothing or fish.
There are the huge sprawling hubs of activity at Spitalfields and Camden Market as well as the world-famous Portobello Road to spend your time hunting out bargains. Greenwich is fantastic for artisan gifts, and for tasty food, it has to be Borough market.
3. Legal London
An aspect of London life with a community of its own, a trip to legal London will leave you amazed. You’ll be wowed by the work that goes on every day behind closed doors as well as the wealth of history available to soak up about the laws of the land and the criminal past of some iconic figures.
Spend the day on your minibus being transported around the Temples area where the majority of court action takes place, to the Inns of Court that was founded by the Knights Templar in the 12th century.
4. The City of London Mile
Spend your time where it all began for this great city; in the very centre of London in ‘the Mile’. You’ll see the mix of the ancient and the contemporary sit side by side as you then take in a tour of the Guildhall that has been the administrative centre of this area since Roman times and finish your day at the mighty Bank of England.
5. The Royal Parks
The Royal Parks were originally owned by the monarchy for hunting but are now vast green spaces of beauty for the public to enjoy all year round. A minibus tour is the perfect way to see some of these landmarks; take in Kensington Gardens, Greenwich Park, Richmond Park and Hyde Park during the day.
You’ll have the chance to see beautiful lakes, hidden woodlands and wildlife you would never have imagined would be living so close to a city centre.
