Travelling to London in 2021 and 2022


COVID 19 safety accreditation

Updated 11 January 2021

As a part of the global travel community, we’ve been following recent news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) very closely.

We have acquired the 'We're Good To Go' certification awarded by Visit England our Official National Tourist Organisation. Bespoke England Tours has followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, has a Risk Assessment in place and a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing, amongst many other steps taken to ensure the safety of our staff and guests.

We also recognise the increased uncertainty that COVID-19 may be causing in your own trip planning. To help you book with confidence, we remind you of our usual remarkable cancellation policy:  free cancellation with full refund on all tours up to 24 hours prior to departure. For further reassurance you can book now via email and pay cash or card on the day. 

Currently England is open to international travel for people who have received both valid Covid-19 jabs and third booster, however with some new few restrictions  

The main things to consider are:

- Requirements to enter the UK will depend on the country(ies) you've visited in the 10 days before arriving in England and your vaccination status. Please check full information with the British government website here.

This page tells you what you must do before you travel to England and after you arrive.

What you must do depends on whether you qualify as fully vaccinated under the rules for travel to England.

There are different rules if you have been in a red list country or territory in the 10 days before you arrive in England. Red list rules apply whether you are fully vaccinated or not.

If you are fully vaccinated 

This is what you need to do if you qualify under the fully vaccinated rules for travel to England.

Before you travel to England you must:

If you’re in England for less than 2 days, you still need to book and pay for a day 2 COVID-19 test.

After you arrive in England you must take a COVID-19 test. This is the test that you booked before travel. You can book either a lateral flow test or a PCR test.

We can help you get PCRs and LFTs and take you to a testing site at or near your landing airport and can offer complete advice on how and where to book your tests. 

You can take the test any time after you arrive and before the end of day 2 at the latest. The day you arrive is day 0.

If your test result is positive, you must self-isolate.

If your lateral flow test result is positive, you must also take a PCR test.

Read separate guidance on what you must do if your test result is positive.

- Rules differ for the four nations of the United Kingdom: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland so if you're visiting several of our nations please familiarise yourself with the differences regarding COVID policies. We are in London so English rules apply to all our England tours. 

- Most venues in London and England require online bookings in advance to limit visitor numbers to facilitate social distancing so please do plan ahead. 

- Face coverings are not compulsory outdoors but must be worn in most indoor venues such as museums, attractions, theatres, cinemas, hotels and on public transport such as trains, the London Underground, buses, taxis and tour vehicles. Face coverings are not compulsory in hospitality venues. As per UK government requirements the use of face coverings on our vehicles is mandatory to guarantee the safety of our staff and guests. 

- We are now offering our full range of in person and virtual private tours.

All measures will be kept under review and people should continue to follow national guidance for England as set out by the government (see link above).
