What to expect

St Paul's Cathedral
The morning part of the tour begins with a visit to St Paul’s Cathedral where you will enter as their doors open. We will explore the masterpiece designed by Wren in 1673 with a professional guide, taking time to listen to the 1695 organ that Mendelssohn once played and visit the tombs of Nelson and Wellington. On Sundays when there is restricted viewing at the Cathedral there will be an opportunity to enter and enjoy one of the services.
Next, you can make the most of a photo-stop outside Westminster Abbey before heading to the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. Buckingham Palace is the official Royal residence of Her Majesty the Queen. Watch the world famous changing of the Guard ceremony as the Queen's soldiers, dressed in their fabulous tunics and busbies march to military music.

Free time will be given for lunch and your guide will be happy to recommend places to eat.

Afternoon: The Tower of London
Arriving at the Tower of London built in 1066 by William the Conqueror, your guide will regale you with fascinating insights into the history of this Royal Palace and fortress. Ample time will be given to view the Crown Jewels and the White Tower and to wander around this imposing fortress.

Boat trip on the River Thames with Cream tea:

Take your seat for a one hour River Thames cruise. Enjoy spectacular views as you glide down the Thames with this hour long cruise. The river offers the best perspective of a number of top attractions and sights; view The Houses of Parliament, The London Eye, Shakespeare’s Globe, St Pauls, The Shard and The Tower of London and Tower Bridge from the comfort of your seat. This boat is a modern catamaran offering climate-controlled indoor cabins with comfortable seating, outdoor back decks, toilets and on-board bars. This tour ends at the London Eye Pier.
