This day, with a gentle walking tour and a cruise on the Regent's Canal, has been one of our most popular tours for 30 years and now includes the Vox Wireless Tour Guide System.

Meet the Blue Badge Guide at 10.30am for morning coffee (now included) at the Museum of London.

In 1666 the Great Fire of London swept away much of the mediaeval City but the flames died to ashes to leave one corner untouched -

a maze of narrow streets and bygone alleyways in ancient Smithfield.

We'll walk beneath a Tudor gatehouse into the yard of London's oldest parish church. You'll see Sir John Betjeman's town house and where Scottish hero Sir William Wallace was executed. By the London home of Hercule Poirot, on the site of a plague pit we go inside stately Charterhouse (not Mondays) to see the chapel and museum before breaking for lunch locally.

Beneath white stuccoed mansions in opulent Little Venice we board a traditional narrow boat. On the 50-minute cruise we pass the aviary designed by Lord Snowdon in London Zoo, see an oriental floating restaurant, willow-draped towpaths and a colourful collection ofhouseboats. We arrive in the cobbled and flagged yard of Camden Lock for time to buy tea before heading home by 4.45pm.

Jam Buster Option

Arrive midday Museum of London for time to buy lunch, enjoy the full, unabridged tour followed by the canal cruise and enjoy a fish & chip tea before heading home on emptier roads at 6.30pm.
