Home to music, football, literature and incredible art, London is as lit as any city could possibly be. From Beckham to Holmes, Churchill to Harry Potter, the city is synonymous with an explosive culture catering to one and all. This tour through the biggest highlights in London will get you up close and personal with, what many claim, the greatest city in the world.

We will pick you up from the charismatic Victoria Coach Station and head to the stunning St. Paul’s Cathedral. Built in the Palladio inspired, restrained English Baroque style by Wren in the 17th century, the cathedral - with its St. Basilica style dome - is inseparable from the London skyline, having towered over it for more than 300 years. The ever popular Westminster Abbey where all the royal ceremonies - from coronations to weddings take place, including the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton, is up next. We will stop here for a while so you can soak in the stunning architectural grandeur of this antique fortress and let your camera shutters loose. But, can you imagine London without the Queen’s Guard? We cannot either! So before we break up for lunch, we will indulge you in the renowned Changing of the Guard ceremony at the Buckingham Palace gate. Treat your eyes to one of the quintessential British traditions where you can watch the guards in their Busbies parading to military music.

After this fascinating activity, the tour will break up for a quick lunch (don’t forget to steal a few recommendations from your guide!) before we regroup again to visit the historic Tower of London. Since its foundation in 1066, the tower has served multiple purposes - from being a royal residence to a prison to its current role of housing the Crown Jewels - and is also protected as a World Heritage Site. Take your time to admire the exquisite elegance and beauty of some of the most iconic treasures of the world, including the Kohinoor and Black Prince’s Ruby.

Next up, we will delight you with a breath taking cruise on the Thames (available only in the summers) where you can feast your eyes on the enigmatic panorama offered by the London cityscape, including Shakespeare’s Globe, Cleopatra’s Needle, London Bridge and The Shard. Relish the glorious London weather as you sail on the fabulous Thames and sink in to the astonishing views before proceeding to our final halt for the day, the legendary Harrods. The tour pampers you with the unforgettable high tea session at Georgian Restaurant, complete with their famous cream tea, home-baked English scones, their exclusive clotted cream and preserves, and a glass of Prosecco. Once you have enjoyed this typically English activity, we will leave you to explore this find-anything-you-need haven - the perfect ending to your enchanting journey through The City.

Please note

Voucher Information: Sorry, but we will need you to print a paper version of your booking voucher (we're working on changing this). At this time no refund can be given for customers without a printed copy of their voucher.

The confirmation voucher includes the local activity operator’s contact details. They’re a nice bunch, and will happily answer any logistical questions you may have. Please give them a call at least 24 hours before your organised activity to reconfirm.

London is one of busiest tourist spots in world and as a result we often face a lot of rush. Even though all our owned vehicles are facilitated with Wi-Fi, please understand that during peak seasons we do add more vehicles to our fleet which may not have Wi-Fi.

Since it is an outdoor activity subjected to changes in weather conditions, the changing of guard is not always in operation. On such days, we will head to Buckingham Palace for a photography session instead.

The tour of St. Paul’s Cathedral is accompanied by our professional guide, except on Sundays when church services are on. Additionally, the Cathedral is closed on certain dates which is why we will replace the stop in such scenarios with a visit to the Household Cavalry Museum.

If you require some kind of mobility assistance, kindly coordinate with us to understand if the tour is suitable for your or the person in question.

As you must be aware, Harrods has a Smart Casuals dress code so please make sure that you are dressed accordingly.

Dietary requirements for Cream Tea: The restaurant can prepare a gluten-free and/or nut-free meal but please ensure that you make a request at least 72 hours in advance. (However, please understand that due to the overall menu prepared in the kitchen, while every effort is made, nut traces could still be present.) The restaurant is unable to accommodate any other dietary requirements unless sufficient prior notice is given.

We have allocated time for lunch and our guide will be happy to recommend places to eat.

*If the Changing of the Guard is not taking place you will still see Buckingham Palace. 

*Please note that on very rare occasions when St. Paul's Cathedral is closed you will be offered an extended panoramic tour of London instead.
