We had a great time visiting London with Andy through a Sandemans walking tour. We started in Covent Garden, then went through the City of Westminster by foot. We were a sizeable group (around 20 people, which was surprisingly numerous for a 1st January morning :P) but we felt really well taken care of and all questions were briliantly answered:... More

The tour is awesome! And despite being a free tour, our guide, Jake, was wonderful. His profound knowledge for London and the royals was surprising. Definitely an interactive and interesting guide for anyone who needs an introduction to London!

First I was reluctant when they said it was a free tour. I had an opinion that the paid tour guides will be more concerned to make the tourists more happy. As the tour timings are perfect for my schedule I thought of giving it a try and it didn't disappoint me. Usually it is hard to understand the British... More

This walking tour is amazing. If you gone on more than one tour in your life you quickly realize that a tour is only as good as the tour guide.Our guide Jake was amazing and most importantly very knowledgeable about London. It was a cold and blustery day but the enjoyment of the tour kept the weather's edge at bay.... More

This evening my cousin and I did the Grim Reaper Tour. Our guide was Rachel and she was so great! She was extremely knowledgeable about the events of the time period, and was very animated in her history telling, making the content even more interesting! My cousin and I typically don't like to take tours because in our opinion, they... More

My first tour with Sandeman's was the free walking tour. Roberta was an excellent guide and she did a great job bringing the history to life. We saw a lot of the London highlights within the span of a few hours. The changing of the guards, Westminster Abbey, and Big Ben. I also did the Ale Tour with Charlotte. I... More

I've taken these tours in several cities, and I always enjoy them. The guides are always fun and do a great job. I would recommend this to anyone looking to walk around, and learn a lot. In London, we did a tour with Andy and he was great!

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighbourhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
