Family London Tours London Main Greenwich

This tour operates Monday to Friday, subject to attraction schedules and guide availability.

Your personal guide will meet you at your central London hotel or agreed meeting point at 8:30am. Then, making use of the ‘tube’ (the Londoners’ nickname for the subway transit system), we embark upon the Day in Greenwich Private Tour. With so much to see and do, this Royal London Borough deserves a full day in its own right. It is not only a famous place name, but a World Heritage site noted for its architecture and the centre of the world’s time zones. Tickets to all attractions in your itinerary will be pre-booked and added to your tour price.

● Cutty Sark
● Maritime Museum
● Queen’s House
● Royal Observatory
● World Meridian Line


Cutty Sark
Your guide will give you a personal tour of the Cutty Sark. Greenwich is the spiritual home of a 19th century sailing ship which has the most extraordinary history as one the fastest ‘trade clippers’ of the sea. A recent multi-million-pound refurbishment has seen the whole ship transformed into an amazing dry dock museum.

Maritime Museum
Your guide will give you a brief personal tour of the National Maritime Museum. Greenwich has a famous naval tradition: it was the Royal Navy HQ for 400 years, and many ambitious voyages left from this shore of the River Thames to discover and explore new worlds and cultures. We will view a brief sea-going history by visiting this museum.

Queen’s House
Your guide will give you a brief personal tour of the Queen’s House. Greenwich was once the principle royal residence outside London, and the cradle, quite literally, of the Tudor dynasty. Royal patronage ensured a variety of architectural greats, including Inigo Jones, whose 1616 Queen’s House was the first classical building in the country.

Royal Observatory
Your guide will give you a brief personal tour of the Royal Observatory. We visit this structure in Greenwich Park built in 1675 by Sir Christopher Wren. Literally, a time capsule where we find some of the answers to the mysteries of chronology, including Harrison’s famous nautical clocks designed to conquer the problem of calculating longitude at sea.

Other highlights
We also have the opportunity of straddling the World Meridian Line, the exact point where East meets West, and nearby capture one of the best panoramic views of London. Finally, we take a brief look around the original Greenwich Village, noting famous past residents.

This tour uses the ‘tube’ (the Londoners’ nickname for the subway transit system). Here are five great advantages:

  1. Cost-effective: typically, a family of four can save over £150.00 on the previous car option. We can take larger groups too (up to 10).
  2. Time-effective: usually a faster way to get around the city, giving you more time to enjoy your tour. As London Transport advertising once proclaimed: ‘It’s quicker by tube!
  3. Eco-friendly: kinder to the environment, and healthier too, with a little more walking involved. Not too much, but enough to burn off some excess calories!
  4. Engaging: interact with the city, just like a local.
  5. Iconic: adds another dimension to the London visitor experience. As the oldest and largest underground transit system in the world, it’s practically an attraction in itself.

Note: We do not offer this tour by car. The combined increased costs of fuel, parking, road tax, congestion charges and licences means we can no longer effectively provide a product of reasonable value.
