The London Lion Hunt

A safari day through Westminster, Whitehall and beyond. Join William the South Bank Lion, and let him introduce you to lots of his friends.


Discover their stories and so much more as you wander through the centre of this great city, enjoying some of London's major sights as well as a few of its hidden treasures.


You'll encounter more lions than you ever knew lived in London as William guides you through the day. What's more, whenever you visit London in the future, you are sure to spot other lions in all sorts of places!


As with all Step Outside Guides, your day begins and ends at tube stations, and in this Guide there is one optional bus ride.


ALERT! The bells of Big Ben will not be ringing out until 2021 as the Elizabeth Tower is given a major overhaul to keep it standing!
