If you’ve ever yearned to experience the heart and soul of London, there’s no better way than by taking the Free London by the Thames Tour, where you’ll explore the iconic areas of the City of London and Bankside. Move away from the usual tourist spots and join a local guide to delve into London’s rich history—both ancient and modern! The Thames isn’t just a river; it’s a flowing timeline charting the city’s history, a watery stage upon which the spectacle of London life unfolds. So, why not take a riverside walk? On one side, you have the North Bank, where you’ll find an array of architectural marvels ranging from St. Paul’s Cathedral to the modern-day titans of the City of London, the capital’s financial heart. On the other side is the South Bank, an ever-changing cultural hub home to everything from the Globe Theatre to skate parks and street food vendors.

Your free tour kicks off in The City, the oldest area of London, where you’ll learn about the origins of this sprawling metropolis. Here you’ll find the magnificent St. Paul’s Cathedral, the largest in the capital and the backdrop to important historical events in British history, such as the funerals of Winston Churchill and the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana. Crossing the Millennium Bridge, your group will head into central London’s most bohemian area, where the Tate Modern is located. Your guide will regale you with intriguing tales about the South Bank’s dubious reputation during Shakespeare’s era and its remarkable transformation over the centuries. Bankside also features significant landmarks like Southwark Cathedral, Borough Market—the oldest market in London—and The Shard, one of the tallest skyscrapers in Europe.

But that’s not all! The tour concludes on a high note with a stop in front of London City Hall, a famous building designed by the revolutionary architect Norman Foster. From here, you can relax and take in the stunning views of Tower Bridge, the city’s most famous bridge, and the historical Tower of London. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your camera and get ready to see London walking alongside the banks of its most legendary river. With so much to see and discover, a free walking tour along the Thames is not just a stroll—it’s an adventure waiting to happen. And let’s be honest, there’s no better price tag than “free,” especially for an experience so invaluable. Book your Free London by the Thames tour today and embark on a journey you’ll never forget!
