Ready to Tailor your Perfect Day

Your time in the UK is precious.  That’s why we’ve grown the best team to design and deliver your private tours.  We are tourism experts, cabbies, academics, standup comedians, ex queens guards, zoo-keepers & quidditch players.

Always something new to see at Borough Market. ...

Did you know that during a day London's River Thames goes up and down up to 25 feet?

At low tide these muddy 'beaches' are exposed. Weird and wonderful things can be found which all tell a story about the city's 2000 year past.

Our most modern discovery today was this half buried and battered #Santander hire bike, known to Londoners as a 'Boris bikes' after the Mayor who instigated them.

Tower Bridge was opened in 1894.

Competition winner, Horace Jones designed its hydrochrolically powered bascules allow large ships to pass through.

It's free to cross and will take you from Bermondsey on the south side to Tower Hamlets (and the Tower of London) on the North.

Seeing it lit up at dusk like this is a Totally Tailored favourite.
