FREE Sightseeing Walking Tour of London

Keep reading to check out my FREE Sightseeing Walking Tour of London.

 If you’re in London for a limited amount of time you’ll want to use that time as best as possible, right? 

I’ve put together a great sight-seeing walking tour of London that takes you past 23 of the key sights that you’ll want to check out while you’re here. The route is super interesting and allows you to use your time, your money and your walking energy as wisely as possible.

You can choose to use the walking tour just as photo opportunities or you can go pay to go inside some of the sights and explore further if you wish. If you’d like to do that it’s worth checking out The London Pass. Also, if you want to take the route a little bit slower, remember you can also split it up over two days.

Here is your FREE Sightseeing Walking Tour of London.
