Guided visit (entrances included) of the Tower of London and the Crown Jewels. Includes a River Thames cruise (30 mins) and a panoramic coach tour of the ancient “City of London”, with a photo stop at Tower Bridge.
What to Expect
See the Tower of London, where the magnificent crown jewels are housed. Founded by William the Conqueror in the eleventh century and located on the north bank of the River Thames. This complex of stone buildings has been a palace, a prison, a zoo, a royal mint and the place of bloody public executions (two of King Henry VIII's wives were beheaded here and it is thought that their ghosts still wander the cobbled alley-ways of the Tower of London, with their disembodied heads clasped under their arms!).
Then will stop for a short walking tour around the imposing seventeenth century St Paul's Cathedral, where Lady Diana and Prince Charles married in 1981. It was founded by the Romans in 43AD. We will explore this maze of streets and alleyways within London's historical heart and pass by the Bank of England, Mansion House and the Monument to the Great Fire of London, before reaching the River Thames, where we will pause to take-in the breathtaking Tower Bridge, London's most iconic bridge, which is uses a hydraulic system to open up in order to allow all vessels to sail beneath her.
This tour will end with a short but marvelous cruise up the River Thames. This 30-minute journey will allow you view such monuments and sites as London Bridge, William Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Millennium Bridge, Waterloo Bridge, St Paul's Cathedral, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye, where we will disembark and where the tour will end.
