Description

Panoramic Tour of London
Start the day off with an exciting panoramic tour of some of London’s most famous sights. Create lasting memories during our drive past the historic Westminster Abbey – the venue for William and Kate’s Royal wedding - cameras at the ready!

St Paul’s Cathedral
From inspiring paintings to gloomy crypts, St Paul’s Cathedral and its sweeping dome is a historical masterpiece. Step inside this three hundred year old church and uncover London’s vast religious history – from the depths of Lord Nelson’s tomb to the sights of the Golden Gallery from the cathedral floor!

Please note: Due to Sunday church services, there will be no guiding inside the cathedral

Buckingham Palace and Changing of the Guard
The tour hits a royal note as we arrive outside England’s most famous residence – Buckingham Palace! Invitations inside are hard to come by, but our photo stop in prime position outside the palace is the next best thing. Witness the truly British Changing of the Guards ceremony and see the ornately dressed Queen’s Foot Guard march alongside a military band.

We will visit Horseguards Parade when the ceremony is not available.

Extended Visit at the Tower of London
After snacks, you will visit the Tower of London – a 1000 year old fortress that hides a past full to the brim with torturous tales and major historical events. See the sparkling Crown Jewels sitting snugly in the Jewel House guarded by Yeoman Warders and explore the tower that has once been a Royal Palace, prison and zoo!

Exclusive Feature
Meet the Beefeaters
Get to know one of the Yeoman Warders during this exclusive tour with the loyal guardians of the Tower. Once responsible for watching over ill-fated prisoners, the Beefeaters’ duties are now altogether more pleasant. However, they can still entertain with stories of gory execution and violent ends!

River Thames Boat Ride
Escape the formidable Tower and take to the river for a relaxing River Thames Boat Ride. As you float down towards Greenwich, enjoy this unparalleled view of London’s attractions and landmarks.

Walking Tour of Greenwich
Greenwich is an absolutely beautiful part of London – A World Heritage Site positively bursting with history. See the iconic tea clipper boat The Cutty Sark and the Christopher Wren designed Old Royal Naval College.

After your walking tour, board the river boat and head back towards Central London, taking in more gorgeous city sights. Choose to alight at either The London Eye near Waterloo and Westminster or The Shard at London Bridge.

Your tour ends at around 5.30pm.
