Take one of our private city tours, arranged through the Concierge. Choose from a ‘West End’ or ‘East End’ day out, taking in the highlights of the respective regions of the city. The ‘West End Day’ takes you from Buckingham Palace to Kensington Palace via Westminster, while the ‘East End Day’ follows the Thames from the South Bank to the Tower of London.
See London on foot. There are endless themed walks, from ghost tours to pub crawls to historic trails, all allowing you to get up close to the lesser seen aspects of the city.
Alternate between land and water with a Duck Tour. Hosted in amphibious vehicles, the tours take you around the streets of London and then into the River Thames.
Travel through the world of wine and viticulture at Vinopolis - a huge venue in London Bridge, dedicated to the grape! Here you can enrol in their Wine School as your palate is put through its paces.
London has many famous musical landmarks. A challenging but fun group activity could be a music-themed treasure hunt, including tasks such as recreating the cover of the Beatle’s famous Abbey Road album or creating a supergroup with photos from Madame Tussaud’s.
Sample the sporting life at one of the capital’s famous venues. Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham head up the footballing names, or in the summer there should be some high profile cricket matches. You can tour Wembley Stadium, cheer on the rugby at Twickenham or even back a winner at Wimbledon Dog track.
Tour the foodie highlights of a city. Borough Market on Friday and Saturdays brings together a world of gourmet treats, or head to Smithfields - London’s famous meat market, or Billingsgate for fabulous fish.
Enhance this further with Brown’s Hotel Culinary Days and Tea-Torials. Executive Chef Lee Streeton and Head Pastry Chef, Theo Ndeh, pride themselves in using only the freshest of seasonal British ingredients. Theo’s Tea-Torials include a demonstration on how to make some of Brown’s famous cakes and Traditional Afternoon Tea in The English Tea Room, voted Top London Afternoon Tea by The Tea Guild 2009.
The Thames was once the lifeblood of the city, and taking a river tour in a privately hired catamaran or speedboat is the perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon. End the tour at historic Greenwich, where you can bestride the Meridian Line.
