On a 4 hour private tour by car I would show you all the major sights of central London -
the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, London Bridge, St Paul's Cathedral, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, the main shopping areas, the theatre district, Whitehall, the Horseguards, Downing Street, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and some of the museums and galleries.
We could make short stops for photographs, we might also stop for the Changing

inside Westminster Abbey.

Full Day Tours of London by Car
With more time (8 hours), it's possible to visit the most important sites and
monuments, as well as finding somewhere special for lunch. The choice is yours,
but you may want to see inside two or three of the following -

Buckingham Palace and the Royal Mews
The Queen's London residence is open to the public in August and September, when Her Majesty is away on holiday in Scotland. For the rest of the year the Royal Mews are open, and here you can see the horses, carriages and cars used on special occasions, including the magnificent Gold State Coach.
