Walking tour of palaces and shop fronts in London

If you are planning a trip to London you must consider London Walks tours

Erin and I chose the Old Palace Quarter. This tour walks you briefly through the 17th century orally but most of the time is spent viewing 18th century architecture.

The tour guide was excellent and theatrically trained, which meant even though we were part of an unusually large group (30+ group) she projected her voice so all could hear.

I appreciated the stories about royalty and the Gemtlemen’s Clubs (social not the other type). There was a lot of time spent talking about merchants. I loved the beginning and end of the tour.
