The Tower of London - Private viewing away from the crowds

Your luxury coach will take you past some of London’s most famous landmarks including Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament on route to the Tower of London.  Here you will be met on the middle drawbridge by your very own Yeoman Warder. Leading you into this prime world heritage site before the doors open to the general public your Beefeater will take you on a private guided tour, explaining the history behind this fortress of imprisonment and torture.  You will also be part of the first group of the day to see the Crown Jewels.  After this, enjoy some free time to explore on your own.  Why not visit Traitors Gate or the armouries or the Bloody Tower?  Remember to keep an eye out for the famous Ravens. Tradition has it that if the Ravens leave the Tower the monarch will fall!

Changing the Guard

Departing the Tower, the tours heads to The Mall to watch the Changing of the Guard* ceremony.  This is when one of the Queens Foot Guard Household Regiments marches from St. James Palace to Buckingham Palace dressed in their world famous tunics and busby hats.

Thames River Cruise & Pub Lunch

Next enjoy a short cruise on the River Thames taking in views of St. Paul’s Cathedral and Shakespeare’s Globe before heading for a traditional pub lunch on the Southbank of the river.

St Paul's Cathedral

The afternoon part of the tour begins with a visit to St Pauls Cathedral. We shall explore this masterpiece designed by Wren in 1673, highlights of the tour will include listening to the 1695 organ that Mendelssohn once played and visit the tombs of Nelson and Wellington. With your professional guide test the unique acoustics of the Whispering Gallery (not normally visited by tour groups).On Sundays when there is restricted viewing at the Cathedral there will be an opportunity to enter and enjoy one of the services.
