Est. --- / 8 hrs / Map

Hello and welcome to our tour of London that has been specially made for children which means that we get to see all of the fun and exciting bits while learning a thing or two along the way. Do you know the name of the river that flows through London? It is called the River Thames. You can often see majestic white swans gliding along the Thames. It is a well-known fact that the swans in Britain all belong to the Queen herself, and we'll be visiting her palace a little later. We often think of swans as being very British indeed but actually swans have only lived in Britain since the 12th century when Richard the Lionheart brought them across from Cyprus! The Romans were the first people to ever settle in the area where London is today, they called it Londinium! Nowadays people from all over the world live in London, over 300 different languages are spoken in London today so keep your ears open and see if you hear any of them today. Because people from all over the world live in London there are lots of interesting shops, supermarkets and restaurants dedicated to food from different countries and cultures. It is a great place to understand more about Britain, as well as the rest of the world.
