Tower of London

We'll start as we mean to go on beginning with a tour of the Tower of London. Your guide will collect you from where you are staying and take you to this most famous of castles, where you will discover the many stories of one of the oldest buildings London, and experience where some of the greatest events in English History occurred. Best of all, you will be able to admire the stunning Crown Jewels, which are kept here under lock and key.

River Cruise and Lunch

On leaving the Tower you will travel to Westminster by scenic river cruise. Travelling by river is the most relaxing (and often most efficient!) way of getting through the centre of the city. You'll pass under London and Waterloo Bridge, spy the London Eye, and view Somerset House on your right hand side. After docking at Westminster Pier under the watchful gaze of Big Ben, your guide will recommend a number of restaurants and eateries where you can have a quick or leisurely lunch.

Westminster and Buckingham Palace

The second half of the day will be dedicated to walking around Westminster and taking in the grandeur of Buckingham Palace.  

First, you will be guided around the outside of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben and learn about the political history of Parliament Square. Then, you'll be shown around the outside of Westminster Abbey, and if time permits you'll be able to go inside (entrance tickets not included).  This is London’s royal church which has been the site of 38 coronations and was where the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton took place.  Following this will be a walk up Whitehall to No. 10 Downing Street, the Prime Minister's residence, ending up at Trafalgar Square.

Finally, we will walk down to take in the Prospect of Buckingham Palace and then up and down the tree-lined Mall, where thousands of jubilant crowds have greeted news about the royal family for generations.
