Bits and Bobs
If you think about visiting the entire center of London, this is an ideal offer for you.
Many people choose this form of sightseeing together with us because it is rich and varied enough to get to know London.
The trip, however, lacks several attractions that are a few miles away such as the City of London (the undisputed global financial center for all of Europe), Tower Bridge (drawbridge), London Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral (building for over 1,400 years), or Tower of London.
But do not worry they are included in our tour of the “All of London Tour” on which we invite the most demanding tourists.

The district is known for its numerous clubs, discos, restaurants, bars and pubs. In addition to entertainment venues open until the night, there are also cinema complexes, theaters (on Shaftesbury Avenue), bookshops (on Charing Cross Road), fashionable shops (Trocadero Center) and games rooms. All this attracts crowds of tourists.
Soho is considered to be the place where the multiculturalism of London is apparently visible. It is a synonym of industry, trade, culture and entertainment, as it is part of the artistic West End.
For centuries, the district has embraced immigrants from all over the world. Today, Soho also refers to the openness of manners, even the large number of bars for gays and transvestites.
11. Oxford Street – a street in London with over 300 stores. Its name derives from a part of former London – Oxford Road, which began in Newgate. From about 1729, the street is called Oxford Street. This street has become one of the largest streets leading to and out of the city.
Oxford Street is a square on the board of the British version of Monopoly. Together with Regent Street and Bond Street, it is part of a green set.
This is undoubtedly the shopping center of London.
12. Selfridges – is a chain of luxury department stores in Great Britain. American merchant tycoon Henry Gordon Selfridge in 1906, came to England with a head full of ideas and hands ready to work. Three years later, as he planned, he opened his shop on Oxford Street, which, after the Harrods, is the second of its kind in London.
13. Regent Street – one of the main shopping streets in London’s West End, popular with both tourists and residents of the city. It was named in honor of the Regent’s Prince (later King George IV of Hanover) and is associated with the architect John Nash, whose street layout has survived to the present times, even though all original buildings (except the All Souls Church) have been replaced.
The street was completed in 1825 and was one of the early examples of spatial planning in England, breaking the seventeenth and eighteenth century pattern. The street starts from the south at the Carlton House residence in St James’s, crosses Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Circus and ends at the All Souls Church. From there, Langham Place and Portland Place lead to Regent’s Park.
All buildings on Regent Street are protected as historic buildings, together they form the Regent Street Conservation Area

It is one of the most recognizable places in London and a tourist attraction, is located close to the main shopping and entertainment districts of the West End and is an important transport hub.
Piccadilly Circus is a place recognizable all over the world mainly thanks to the light advertisements of such companies as eg Samsung, McDonald’s or Coca-Cola, located at one of the corners of the square. The first advertising boards appeared in this place in the 1890s, the first highlighted was the Perrier advertisement, the lighting was installed in 1908. From 1910, the installation of neon advertisements began, the first to advertise the Bovril and Schweppes beverages.
