From pubs to Poldark, here are five of the best sightseeing tours featured in our Directory
From city sightseeing to seven-day safaris, the Tours page is one of the most popular sections of our Directory. So, we thought it was about time we gave an extra shout-out to some of the experiences on offer. If nothing else, they’re certainly diverse…
Film location tours with P&P Tours
As you might guess from the name, Jane Austen and Pride & Prejudice tours have been P&P Tours’ speciality since the company’s launch in 2007. Since then, P&P has grown to become a leading tour specialist for anyone who loves period drama, adding Downton Abbey tours throughout the year and, more recently, a chance to see the Cornwall locations used in the BBC’s hit 2015 version of Poldark. So, time to get your swash buckled. [EDIT, 1 February 2016: P&P Tours has sadly closed now, but we’ve left this paragraph here as otherwise the title of the article makes no sense at all!]
Game of Thrones location spotting with Brit Movie Tours
More into Daenerys than Demelza? Then Brit Movie Tours’ journey into Westeros (aka Northern Ireland) will take you to a dozen locations used in the first four series of the hit HBO fantasy drama. If you’re up for it, you can even release your inner Arya and have a go at archery in full costume.
Experience London’s nightlife with Nights Gone Wild
We have to confess that we didn’t even know you could do an organised pub crawl until we heard from Nights Gone Wild – but if you fancy experiencing some of London’s best venues with likeminded company, you’ve come to the right place. Hit London’s thriving West End or trendy Shoreditch, enjoy a drink or three, and make some new friends while you’re at it – perfect!
Visit London’s landmarks with Free Tours of London
If you prefer palaces to pilsner, then the daily Free Royal Tour by Free Tours of London may well be up your street, taking you on a two-and-a-half hour sightseeing tour through British history. If you’re feeling palaced out, don’t worry – there are Old City and Jack the Ripper tours as well. Just check the tour times and meeting points on the website, turn up on the day (no need to book), and pay whatever you think the tour is worth.
Explore Catalonia with Barcelona Exclusive Private Tours
Of course, it’s not just London that attracts tourists in their droves. Barcelona, rightly, is one of the most popular city-break destinations, combining amazing architecture, vibrant culture, and great shops and bars, all wrapped up in a dollop of Catalan flair. Whether you fancy exploring the city’s famous landmarks – such as Gaudi’s iconic Sagrada Familia – or venturing a bit further afield, Barcelona Exclusive Private Tours will make sure that your visit is a stress-free and memorable one.
