Overview

See the best that England’s capital has to offer on a full-day city tour of London! Explore St Paul’s Cathedral with a guide, then make a photo stop at Westminster Abbey. Watch the must-see Changing of the Guard ceremony outside Buckingham Palace and have some free time for lunch around the UNESCO-listed Tower of London. Finish up with a sightseeing cruise down the River Thames. If you want to see even more, upgrade to one of two activities: a cream tea at Harrods restaurant or a London Eye flight.

Highlights

  • Comprehensive tour of the city
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water

Start your day with pickup at the Victoria Coach Station in central London, and then travel by air-conditioned coach to St. Paul's Cathedral. Spend the morning there, then travel to Westminster Abbey where Prince William married Kate Middleton in a lavish royal wedding ceremony in 2011. Pose for photos outside the Gothic crowd pleaser. Head to the Mall outside Buckingham Palace to watch the legendary Changing of the Guard ceremony. Accompanied by a military band, soldiers from the Queen’s Foot Guard march in time to drumbeats, performing a ceremonial ritual that dates back centuries.

Move on to the Tower of London, a former prison, fortress and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit sites like Traitor’s Gate, the Torture Exhibition and, of course, the glittering Crown Jewels – a collection of irreplaceable and historic items. Spend some free time here exploring and eating lunch.

Hop aboard a sightseeing boat for an extended trip down the River Thames. Cruise down the river, looking out for the top London attractions such as Tower Bridge, Shakespeare’s Globe, and then step out onto dry land.

Finish your tour at London Eye or alternatively, upgrade to finish on a high note with one of two optional activities. Options include a cream tea with a glass of sparkling wine at Harrods restaurant or a must-do London Eye flight, for picture-perfect views over the capital. Both activities include transport to the attraction, but no transport back. Harrods cream tea includes Home-baked English Scones served with clotted cream and preserves, choice of tea from Harrods own tea gardens plus a glass of sparkling wine.

Please note: If your tour falls on a date when the Changing of the Guard ceremony is not taking place, you will stop at Buckingham Palace for photos
