What you can expect

See London from every angle on this complete, full-day tour; exploring on foot, by water & even from above. With first entrance at Westminster Abbey you’ll enter before the crowds. This tour covers more than any other.

Your morning starts near Westminster Abbey, seeing Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, before entering the Abbey at opening time to go directly to the Coronation Chair. Learn about the history of this, England’s most important church, and see the countless monarchs and luminaries buried inside; from kings and queens to great writers.

It’s a short dash from there to Buckingham Palace to catch the Changing of the Guard. The area in front of the Palace is mobbed but you'll have a great alternative viewpoint. You’ll see also catch the Horse Guards Parade (little known but, even more impressive), before visiting Trafalgar Square.

After a break for lunch you’ll board a Thames river cruise, disembarking to cross the Tower Bridge. Stand in the centre where the bridge opens and enjoy incredible views of the Tower of London.

Then it’s on to the last visit of the day, but most likely the best: The Tower of London. With pre-reserved tickets you’ll get inside quickly to enjoy a tour of its fascinating (and sometimes gruesome) history. Your guide will leave you here to visit the Crown Jewels on your own.
