Secrets of the London Underground Small Group Experience
The London Underground, or the ‘Tube’ as it is more commonly known, is more than just a transport network- it is an icon of London and the lifeblood of the city; every year, more than 1.3 billion passengers journeys are made across its 270 stations. Beginning with the construction of the Thames Tunnel in 1843, the world’s first tunnel built underneath a river and dubbed ‘The Eighth Wonder of the World,’ the 175-year history of the London Underground is an eventful one full of world-firsts, stories, and urban legends. The Experience begins at the historic Baker Street Station, one of the original stops on the Metropolitan Railway, the world’s first underground railway.
Lake District tour with afternoon tea and cruise
Kick off your day of exploring at Oxenholme Station, where your expert guide will be waiting to whisk you away to the heart of the Lake District. Enjoy the scenic surroundings of the Cumbrian Mountains, stop to snap some photos at the tranquil Tam Hows, and discover the silver waterfalls and impressive rock scenery of Langdale Valley.
Then, it’s time to visit the tiny medieval market town of Hawkshead. With a charming mix of higgledy-piggledy houses and narrow cobbled streets, this pretty village in the heart of the Lake District was beloved by great writers like Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth. The next stop is Hill Top Farm, the former home of Beatrix Potter and the inspiration for so many of her characters. If you visit during the winter months, you’ll see the ‘World of Beatrix Potter’ interactive exhibition instead, as the farm is closed during that time.
London In One Day Tour with River Cruise
Your Evan Evan Small Group tour begins with a journey through the heart of London with your expert tour guide onboard one of our luxury coaches.. As you make your way through the city, your guide will impart exciting stories and interesting facts about London’s long history. Along the way, you will see all of London’s most iconic landmarks, including the Albert Memorial, Westminster Abbey, the iconic Elizabeth Tower, also known as ‘Big Ben’, and much, much more! The Changing of the Guard At one of our first stops, Buckingham Palace, we will watch a traditional ceremony that is the epitome of British pomp and pageantry.
During the ceremony, guards from the New Guard of the Household Division arrive to assume responsibility for protecting Buckingham Palace. Accompanied by a regimental marching band, these soldiers are instantly recognizable in their bearskin caps and scarlet tunics. Don’t let the bearskin hats fool you – these soldiers are elite soldiers from the British military! St Paul’s Cathedral Guided Tour St Paul’s Cathedral is an iconic symbol of London. One of the largest churches in the world, its dome is an incredible 366ft high and was the tallest building in London until the 1960s. Explore the history of the Cathedral on a guided walking tour, and hear how Sir Christopher Wren’s masterpiece took 35 years to complete.
Wartime London Small Group Experience
Exclusive – Free Souvenir Photo Brochure The experience is guided using an exclusive photo brochure designed specifically for the tour. Look at the images of key locations at the height of the Blitz and compare them to their modern-day appearance. The photo brochure helps us understand the significance of each place we visit, and it can be taken home as a special souvenir and memory of your tour. Wartime Headquarters From 1939 to 1945, Britain fought for its survival against the might of the German war machine. See the wartime headquarters from where the Allied leaders coordinated the resistance.
Britain was to be bombed into submission and over the course of 76 consecutive nights between September and November 1940, a third of the city was destroyed, while tens of thousands lost their lives. See visible signs of bomb damage from the war and visit the remains of at least one church that was destroyed during the Blitz and left as a testament to the devastation. Step back in time. See the building where ‘Operation Overlord’ was planned, including the Allied landings on D-Day – the largest air, naval, and land operation in history.
Spy & Espionage Small Group Tour
For decades, MI5, MI6, and GCHQ pitted themselves against the intelligence apparatus of the Soviet Union. Theirs is a tale of tragedy, betrayal, and eventual triumph in the war of espionage and counterintelligence. On this Evan Evan Small Group Tours experience, you will explore this shadowy world and gain insight into Britain’s top intelligence agencies and the different roles they play in protecting the country. See the home of MI6- famously featured in several James Bond movies – the headquarters of MI5, and visit the public ‘dead drop’ sites where spies exchanged top-secret information.
