What to Expect
Your tour starts at Charing Cross, in the Strand, right in the heart of London. A short walk leads you to the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square. Hear how the Charing Cross commemorates an amazing royal wife, Eleanor of Castile (died 1290), and how the place used to mark the center of London.

Then, heading into Trafalgar Square, see and hear about the various statues of important historical figures, the Nelson’s column, the church of St.Martin in the Fields, the South Africa House and Canada House with its rooftop beehives. This is where Londoners march, make demonstrations and celebrations (especially in New Year’s Eve), and sing Christmas carols and so much more.

Then, enter the National Gallery which, with its 2,500 paintings, is one of the richest and most important art collections in the world. The highlights tour will give you a panorama of Western European art from the 1200s to the early 1900s. Cover all the major European schools of painting with masterpieces from Italy, France, Britain, Germany, Spain, and more.
