Entry to Tower of London & Crown Jewels and entry to St Paul's Cathedral. A Thames River Cruise. In one day you'll experience all that London has to offer - the sights, the sounds, the tradition, the ceremony and the splendour of this majestic capital city. Westminster Abbey and Parliament Square - the tour begins with a panoramic drive around Parliament Square, to see Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married. To Kensington Palace, former home of Diana, Princess of Wales. You will see the Royal Albert Hall and Albert Memorial. Buckingham Palace and the Changing of the Guard - then you head to St James' Park and Buckingham Palace to see the colourful ceremony of the Changing of the Guard*. Accompanied by a military band, a detachment of the Queen's Foot Guard march to Buckingham Palace to change with the old guard. Then have a chance to enjoy lunch at a traditional London Pub (meal not included). St Paul's Cathedral - a guided tour of Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece - St Paul's Cathedral - crowned by the magnificent dome that is so much a part of the London skyline. The Cathedral was rebuilt after the Great Fire of London in 1666. In recent years it has seen the wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales, to Lady Diana Spencer and, most recently, the thanksgiving services for both the Golden Jubilee and 80th Birthday of Her Majesty the Queen. The Tower of London, Crown Jewels and Thames River Cruise - founded by William the Conqueror in 1066-7 and enlarged by successive sovereigns, the Tower of London is one of the world's most famous and spectacular fortresses. Over the past 1000 years it has been a royal palace, an armoury and a place of imprisonment and execution. The Beefeaters who guard the Tower will regale you with stories of its past. We will visit the Crown Jewels, including the magnificent solid-gold crown used at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the enormous Cullinan diamonds and the extraordinary Koh-i-Noor. You have the choice to take the River Cruise and end your tour at Westminster Pier, or take the cruise on another day and go with your guide back to Victoria Railway Station. Admission to St Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower of London is included in the tour price. *Occasionally there may not be a Changing of the Guard. On these occasions we will visit Horseguards Parade, built on the site of the jousting yard of the old Whitehall Palace and the scene of reviews, parades and ceremonies.
