        Meeting Point - The Palace Theatre

 

We begin outside The Palace Theatre, home to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, just around the corner from Leicester Square underground station. The station is on the northern and piccadilly line, and around a 10 minute walk from Tottenham Court Road Station and Covent Garden Station.

We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before the tour starts, it gives you plenty of time to meet the guide and grab a coffee or ice cream!

How do I find the Guide?


Head to The Palace Theatre and look for the guide holding up a bright red umbrella.




Where does the tour start and end?


The tour starts at The Palace Theatre and the guide should be nearby. The tour will finish near Embankment, in Westminster. The exact location will vary depending on the guide and the day, but the guide will always let you know at the beginning of the tour.




Do I need to make a booking? Or cancel if my plans change?


Yes please. The number of bookings we receive dictates how many guides we send to run the tour. If we have 100 extra people turn up, its not going to be a good experience for anyone. Please be aware, we do not accept groups of 8 people or more. Even if you book separately, if you attend the tour as a big group, you will be turned away. If you are a group of 8 or more please contact us to enquire about booking a private tour. We'd be very grateful if you could cancel if you can no longer attend, as it could allow us to give your spot to someone else.




What if its raining?


If its raining, we will get wet! We always recommend you carry an umbrella in London, the weather really is that temperamental, but if we didn't run tours in bad weather, we wouldn't get to do many. Rain or shine we will be there waiting. Of course, if you don’t fancy standing in the rain with us we understand.




What should I wear?


Our tours are all walking, so we always recommend comfy shoes. Check the weather on the day of the tour, but we recommend bring a raincoat and some SPF just incase.




How is it free?*


We run all our tours on a pay what you think it’s worth basis. There is no booking fee for our free tours, and no payment is required before the tour begins. This means they are accessible to every budget. However our guides are all freelancers and don't get paid to do the tour, if you have fun then you can decide if you would like to tip your guide. The value is up to you, whatever fits in with your budget and your level of enjoyment. This also incentivises our guides to never stop trying to improve, as the system rewards the guides who provide the best quality tours. Tipping is always voluntary and our guides will never pressure you into it, but this is their job so if you have had fun, we ask that you take a moment to consider what it was worth to you.




How long is the tour?


The tour is roughly 2 hours long.





Prefer to join us on a Private Tour?

If you are booking for a group of 8 or more, or just want a more personal experience away from the crowds, then you can book this as a Private Tour. You can dictate the content, the route and the time or sit back and let your guide lead you.
