Tour description
 

From crowns to confessions, the Tower of London has been keeping a watchful eye over the city and the river Thames since its founding in 1079.

 

A spectacular edifice, it has lived many lives- as a mint, an observatory, a zoo, an armory, a royal palace, a treasury and most notoriously, as a place of execution. Home to both the Beefeaters and the Crown Jewels today, the Tower’s story is one of intrigue, scandal and ceremony waiting to be discovered.

 

Meet your expert English-speaking guide who will give you the lowdowns and highlights of this 11th century fortress before you go inside the Tower to discover it on your own. Top tip- head straight for the crown jewels, meet the ravens  and don’t miss the White Tower, the oldest part. 

 

Rejoin your guide for a relaxing cruise of the River Thames with your small-group as you hear the stories of St Pauls, Shakespeare’s Globe, the Romans and the impact this great river has had on the lives of Londoners since its banks were first settled. 

 

But your experience does not stop there! 

 

Alighting in the royal city of Westminster, take a walking tour of the iconic landmarks that dot these streets like jewels - Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Whitehall, Horseguard’s Parade, you’ll even have time to get those all-important snaps with the snazzily dressed mounted cavalry- all paired with the incredible stories, anecdotes and history gems shared by your expert guide. 

 

Come saunter with us for this well-paced crash course into London’s royal history - whether inside the Tower of London and walking the ‘red carpet’ down to Buckingham Palace, this is an experience you’ll never forget.
