What to Expect
Enjoy a full-day private sightseeing tour of the cathedrals of London, and visit some of the city’s most iconic sites, as well as a few off-the-beaten-path locations.
Meet your guide by Westminster Abbey, site of the coronation of all English and British monarchs for 1,000 years. Inside the Anglican abbey lie the tombs of many of the great and good from history, including Charles Darwin, Isaac Newton and King Henry III.
Next, stroll down to the less-visited Westminster Cathedral, a beautiful Roman Catholic church built at the end of the 19th century in a dazzling Byzantine style.
Continue across town to St. Paul's Cathedral, built by Sir Christopher Wren shortly after the Great Fire of London. Marvel at the iconic dome, symbol of the “Spirit of the Blitz” during World War II. Its beautiful exterior is matched by a glorious classical interior of soaring transepts, painted ceilings, and art works by William Holman Hunt and Henry Moore.
Cross the river to Southwark Cathedral, the Anglican cathedral for south London, and a place of worship for more than 1,000 years. End your tour at the Roman Catholic St. George’s Cathedral, located opposite the Imperial War Museum. Almost entirely destroyed during World War II, the cathedral was rebuilt in the late 1960s.
There are several other cathedrals in the city you are free to request, including Greek and Russian Orthodox cathedrals. All tours are private and can be customized to your interests.
