If you are in good walking shape, this is probably best way to do sightseeing in London - you follow the guide who in our case led us around major sights telling us many interessting things about London. For a newbie in London, it was a great experience and I am glad I did the tour. The tour is free,... More

You never quite know what you are going to get with a free walking tour, however the tour I took with Rachel yesterday was amazing. Rachel was enthusiastic, entertaining and informative throughout the entire tour. I would definitely recommend taking this tour in London and look forward to taking other sandeman tours in the future. Thanks

Took the 2.5hr free tour with Becky today, and it was brilliant! I have visited London many times, but I came away knowing a lot more than I did before. The tour was enjoyable, she was super knowledgeable and I had a lot of fun! Recommended for everyone - even if you're not new to London.

Went on the free walking tour in London today. Our guide Becky was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and good at engaging the crowd throughout the entire tour! She was friendly and funny and covered the basics of London in a very enjoyable way. We saw so much and if we could would be taking another tour with her

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighbourhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
