What you will do
Westminster Abbey! Royal weddings of course. But also a great religious centre, the place where kings and queens were crowned and often buried, the seed-bed of democratic government, the driving force of English music – the Abbey is England in microscosm. It's also a building of splendour, intricacy and consummate virtuosity. (Henry III spent one-tenth of the entire wealth of the kingdom on it.) Its particulars are astonishing: the greatest work of mediaeval art in Britain; the finest Renaissance tomb north of the Alps; priceless 13th-century wall paintings; waxworks far superior to Madame Tussaud"s; monumental sculpture and memorial tablets that are a tableau of national biography.

London Walks is the oldest urban walking tour company in the world. It's also – by common consent – the premier urban walking tour company in the world. It's the gold standard.
A simple fact and a 24-carat judgement. And they alloy perfectly.
London Walks was founded nearly half a century ago by Keith Baverstock, an Australian. In Graham's lapidary phrase, "Keith started London Walks because he was fed up with the banality of typical London tourist fare."www.walks.com
