The London Magical Tours Story

Dr. Cartland

Founded by Dr. Gil Cartland, London Magical Tours offers a wide range of sightseeing options in London and across the United Kingdom, including Windsor, Hampton Court, Stonehenge, Oxford and the Cotswolds.

From scheduled group tours through to private tours and exclusive VIP trips, our principles are the same - discover some of the world's oldest and greatest locations with your own sightseeing team consisting of a personal tour guide and in addition, your own chauffeur, for an experience to remember.

The London Magical Tours team of guides and chauffeurs are all qualified professionals who have been uniquely selected for their personality, enthusiasm and vast knowledge of England.

Our experienced chauffeurs are fully licenced in accordance with English law, while our award winning tour guides are acclaimed for being the best in their areas of speciality - a winning combination.

Having traveled extensively around the world, Dr. Cartland returned home in 1915 to face a large dilemma: how could he best show London to his friends and acquaintances?

Everywhere he looked he could not find a service that presented the capital the way he envisaged. Tours were very cramped and he did not want his guests feeling like numbers making up a crowd. He wanted a chauffeur to take them to the historic locations and look after the tour vehicle without problems. He also sought a personal guide with a true in-depth knowledge to be able to share with them unknown anecdotes and secret stories, an experience to befit what he regarded as the world's greatest city.

It was through this vision that London Magical Tours was formed. These principles remain at the very heart of our tour offerings today.

As the original pioneers of the Layover Tour, our tours direct from Heathrow Airport, Gatwick Airport and the Eurostar are still the most popular for visitors on transit. We have also expanded our services outside of London, providing a selection of England and UK tours to the best sightseeing locations across the country in most languages through our specialist multi-lingual guiding team, offering a stunning choice of sightseeing.

At London Magical Tours we are proud of the service we offer and the comments we receive from our visitors. We believe that it is the little details that separate a good tour from a very special experience.

We hope to see you soon,
