Don't Panic! A Geek's Guide to London!

I'm probably the most excited about this private tour! I am a geek and I am a Londonphile, so combining the two of these into one tour only makes sense.

London is chock full of geeky things...from Sherlock Holmes to Doctor Who, from Shaun of the Dead to 28 Days Later, from An American Werewolf in London to the Highgate Vampire, from Harry Potter to The Rivers of London, from Clockwork Orange to Misfits.
Some of the locations we can visit are...

  • Several Doctor Who locations including Earl's Court, the London Eye & London Bridge.
  • Platform 9 3/4 from Harry Potter.
  • The house in the TV show Spaced.
  • Trafalgar Square - the location of several films & TV shows including Doctor Who and Day of the Trifids.
  • The house from Hellraiser.
  • Piccadilly Circus -  film location for bo
  • The actual location of 221b from the TV show Sherlock.
  • th 28 Days Later and An American Werewolf in London.
  • The river side locations for Clockwork Orange & Misfits.

Most of these things are in and around central London but some of these sights are a little out of the this is an all day tour. The minimum length will be 6 hours.
Because of this, we will obviously be stopping for refreshments, this may or may not include a pub or two, it's up to you.

Here's some places we can stop off at along the way:
The Four Quarters - London's only arcade bar. Craft beer, arcade games & fun times, what could be better!
The Grapes - The pub owned by Sir Ian McKellen, aka: Gandalf, Magento, etc.
Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese - One of the oldest pubs in London. Dickens drank here.
Ye Olde Mitre - Another historic pub...if you can find it. It's almost like it's on a real life trap street.
Ping - Ping Pong bar in Earl's Court

We can even plan to do the tour on a day that Geeks Inc. have one of their quizzes!

The price for this tour is £150 per person. I can customise this tour to fit your fandom or we can do a mixed bag of geekdom.
