What you can expect

Welcome to the south of England where there are many hidden gems awaiting your exploration. You will be met at your designated cruise terminal with a sign bearing your name for easy identification. You will be picked up at the Cruise Ship Port with a 5 or 7 seat A/C vehicle, depending on the number of people in your party. Your tour will begin with a touch of the Beatles that will bring music to your ears. On the drive to London, you will have the opportunity to learn about English culture and heritage, and the details of what you will be exploring throughout the day. You will also have the chance to ask any questions you may have. Upon arrival in London, you will begin your tour with the Houses of Parliament (aka The Palace of Westminster) and the Elizabeth Tower which is currently under scaffolding for renovation. You will also learn the story of Big Ben. Next on the agenda is Westminster Abbey, the church, burial ground, and coronation site that has attracted visitors over the past 900 years, as well as Parliament Square and then the regal Buckingham Palace - the Queen's official residence since 1837. As you travel through the Mall, you will reach Trafalgar Square where the National Gallery, St Martin in the Fields Church, and Admiral Nelson's Column are all located. It is here that you will have time for a traditional English lunnch such as the famous fish & chips, steak and ale pie, or roast lamb with mint sauce; all favourites of our British locals! If you are a vegetarian, it is no problem as there are many vegetarian options, such as Bubble and Squeak, Welsh Rarebit or cauliflower cheese! After lunch, you will go down to Whitehall and through Downing Street, passing Number 10, (the home of the Prime Minister), as we proceed along the River Thames. The London Eye will greet you directly across from the new residence of New Scotland Yard. As you travel further along the Thames, the road will take you to Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece St. Paul's Cathedral. Afterwards, you will stop at the Monument where you will learn about London’s change of destiny due to the Great Fire of London. You will then proceed to the Tower of London, an attraction that is unpleasant for some as it houses the most popular instrument of torture in medieval England, the rack! However, its viewing has offered a bit of fun for over 900 years. You will be transferred to your cruise ship, hotel, or airport. after your tour.
