Tips for planning a trip to London

When is the best time of year to visit London?

One of our favorite parts about our London tours is that it’s always a good time to take one. Despite being farther north than much of North America, England has a temperate climate—which means tours to London are enjoyable any time of the year.

Spring and fall offer pleasant weather and fewer crowds at the most popular sites, making the off-season a perfect time to visit England. Winter offers plenty of charm, especially when Christmas markets line the streets in London and around the country.

No matter what time of year you plan to travel to London, expect some rain—but don’t let it keep you from enjoying this beautiful destination! Just have your wellies with you (that’s British for “rain boots”).

What are the top attractions to see in London?

The top attractions for all London trips include:

  • Buckingham Palace. A trip to the enormous royal residence is a must for all London tours. Be sure to catch the famous Changing of the Guard!
  • London Eye. This iconic ferris wheel boasts the best views of the city. It’s even air-conditioned.
  • Big Ben. This is the famous clock attached to the Palace of Westminster. You’ll get the best view from the Westminster Bridge.

Check out our London Travel Guide for a full list of the top attractions we feature in our London tour packages.

What are some interesting things to do on a trip to London?

There are infinite things to pass the time on our London tours, but some of our favorites include:

  • Shopping at Harrods, the United Kingdom’s largest department store
  • Sipping tea at Kensington Palace’s Orangery, a stunning Victorian-era setting for a midday snack
  • Strolling through Trafalgar Square and appreciating the art inside The National Gallery
  • Crossing Abbey Road, the famous location where the Beatles took their iconic photo
  • Perusing vintage books, antiques, and street food at Portobello Road Market
  • Eating fish and chips at Rules, London’s oldest restaurant

Our escorted tours of London, like The City Experience, are your sure-fire way to make the most of your time there.

I’m planning a trip to London. What should I pack?

Here’s what to pack for a tour in London:

  • A windproof umbrella and raincoat. London has its fair share of drizzly conditions throughout the year (it’s part of the quintessential London experience!), and being prepared for rain means being prepared for wind.
  • A comfortable backpack. That way, you’ll always have what you need, no matter what.
  • Lots of layers. The weather in London turns fast, and layers are a great way to make sure you’re always comfortable.
  • UK power adapter. This three-pronged adapter is different from the two-prong European adapter, so make sure you order the right one before departing on our London tours. This guide to power adapters and converters can help.

What are some common dishes to order in London?

Apart from the famous fish and chips, you can’t go wrong with a traditional Sunday roast with Yorkshire pudding (popovers), roasted potatoes, and a vegetable on the side.

Meat pies are another popular food in London. The ingredients inside a meat pie can vary, but there are always three main options: beef, mushrooms, and good English ale.

And while it’s not necessarily a food, no trip to London is complete without trying a traditional afternoon tea. There are hundreds of teas to choose from in England, and you’ll typically enjoy them alongside light sandwiches, scones, or pastries. Yum!

What should I know before booking tours to London?

If you're going to spend a fair amount of free time in London, you may benefit from purchasing The London Pass. It's around £75 for a day pass, but is very worth it if you plan to visit several of the city's attractions in a short period of time!

And remember: people in England drive on the opposite side of the road than we're used to, so please to look both ways before crossing the street on our London tours!

Our London Travel Guide will answer all your questions. It’s full of the top travel tips, including what to see, what to do, and what to know.

What are the benefits of taking a guided tour to London?

One of the perks of going guided is that you’ll see the top sites without planning a thing or worrying about transportation. Along the way, your expert local guide will dive deep into the history and culture of the city, as well.

Another benefit of our London group tours is meeting some incredible people along the way. You’ll see the city alongside new friends in your group, and get to know our guides as they share unique perspectives on London.

And, with all kinds of excursions and opportunities to explore during free time, our London guided tours give you plenty of time to set off on your own, too.
