    Itinerary

    This London sightseeing tour starts at 1:00pm from the Original London Visitor's Centre which is located just off Trafalgar Square. Travel by coach to your first stop: St Paul’s Cathedral.

    Your tour starts with a guided tour of St Paul’s Cathedral. This masterpiece with its distinctive dome is one of the most recognisable landmarks on the London skyline. Your guide will tell you fascinating stories about the Cathedral including how it was re-built after the great fire of London in 1666 and the many Royal celebrations which have taken place there.

    Next it’s on to the Tower of London. This ancient fortress offers more history than perhaps any other London landmark. The tower is still guarded by the traditional Yeoman Warders (Beefeaters) who will enthrall you with tales of murder, mystery, intrigue and treason at the tower. While there you will also be able to see the Crown Jewels including the famous Koh-i-Noor Diamond which is over 6000 years old.

    As you return to Victoria Station you will take a drive through the City of London, also known as the “Square Mile.” This is one of the oldest parts of London and is also the heart of the financial district; thus the area is a fascinating mix of architecture, where thousand-year-old structures stand harmoniously next to 21st century skyscrapers and the whole area is alive with the hustle and bustle of city traders.

    You have the choice to take the Thames River Cruise and end your tour at Westminster Pier, or take the cruise on another day and go with your guide back to Victoria. Our activity partner operate a regular service between the Tower of London and Westminster Pier. River Cruise Tickets are one-way from Tower Pier to Westminster Pier (or vice versa).

    The tour ends at Victoria Train Station at around 5:30pm.
