No sharing, no buses or coaches we provide a driver and vehicle exclusively to you, offering privacy, comfort and the chance to customise the tour experience according to your own tastes and interests…

Also these tours can take you to more in-depth places, hidden spots or behind-the-scenes where ordinary tourists might not otherwise be allowed.

Discover The South offers numerous types of tours, we can however arrange bespoke extra special experiences, including these 4 that we feel are the very best in British hidden and private tours.


Private Viewing of the British Crown Jewels

The Tower of London has been the home of the world-famous English Crown Jewels for over 600 years. The Crown Jewels include the Coronation Regalia - items used at the coronation of a Sovereign. You will be able to see the "Cullinan I" diamond (530.2 carats), the largest cut diamond in the world. One of the most impressive crowns you will see is the Imperial Crown of India, set with emeralds, rubies, sapphires and 6100 diamonds.


You can opt for a private tour of the jewels given by a “beefeater” who explains their history and significance in-depth.


Private Rental of a London-Eye Capsule

How about a private capsule to turn your London Eye day into a real experience of fancy? Perfect for romance, kids parties or events with friends and family.

Experience breathtaking views from the luxury of your own Private Capsule with up to 25 guests Enjoy exclusive check-in and priority boarding as you are escorted to your exclusive Private Capsule for an amazing 30 minute experience high above London.

Private Viewing of Stonehenge

We are often able to get permission from the English Heritage for additional 'inner circle' dates for small groups (1-16 persons)to experience a unique visit to this ancient sacred site - beyond the fences & after the crowds have gone home. Walk amongst the stones & experience the magical atmosphere within the inner circle.

For those of you who have not visited this sacred site, we should mention that the complex is roped off. Visitors observe the stones from a distance and are not permitted within the temple complex..........our special access tours allow you to be amongst the stones. Your guide will bring to life its many myths, legends and rich and fascinating history. Departure and return times vary according to the time allocated for special access.


Salisbury Cathedral Tower Tours

Salisbury Cathedral is one of Britain’s finest medieval cathedrals and offers a warm welcome to all who visit. Set within eight acres of lawn and surrounded by historic buildings and museums 

Enjoy spectacular views as you explore the roof spaces and tower, climbing 332 steps in easy stages by narrow winding spiral staircases to reach the foot of the spire 225 feet above ground level. From here you can see up into the spire through the medieval scaffold, and from the outside you can look over the city and surrounding countryside.
