London birding tours

We can offer guided birding tours out of London with a dedicated tour option for participants who are visiting or living in and around the city.

With a London base and extensive birding experience of the city and its surrounds, we can provide a birding tour focussed on the London area.

Or we can collect you from London and take you on a birding tour of Sussex, which is as little as an hour's drive away from the city centre, and drop you off at the end of the day.

A birding escape

Wildstarts is proud to be the popular option for birding tours in the London area.

If you're in London for business or pleasure but want to escape the city centre for some birding, we're here for you!

Our guides have extensive experience of sites in and around London if you would like to explore the birds of the city and its surrounds.

But remember Sussex and the rest of South East England is within easy reach.

We offer any-time pick-up and drop-off as part of our private birding tours out of London, meaning all you need to do is step out of your hotel and enjoy a day in the field with our friendly and knowledge guides.

Our guided birding tours also make for an exciting and different day out for London residents — if you'd like to learn more about birds or want a day to sit back and be taken to some top birding locations, the Wildstarts team can make it happen.

More than 370 species have been recorded in the London area itself (defined as a 20-mile radius from St Paul's Cathedral), making the city one of Europe's top urban birding destinations.

The city has several lush parks and even some large nature reserves. But we can easily expand a day trip to include top birding locations in Sussex and elsewhere in South East England.

It is also a perfect base for exploring the wider area. Sussex, Kent, Essex and even Norfolk and Suffolk are all within a day trip of London.
