Despite being widely ridiculed when it first opened, the London Eye is now one of the most recognizable and loved structures in London.
One of the most stunning and iconic bridges in the world, Tower Bridge was built nearly 60 years into the reign of Queen Victoria and during the height of the British Empire. You will have the opportunity to take photos at its most spectacular vantage point then actually get the chance to cycle across it.
St. Paul's Cathedral is the defining masterpiece of Sir Christopher Wren's architectural genius. The ground upon which it is built has been considered sacred for thousands of years. It was almost completely destroyed during the Second World War but was saved by a courageous group of volunteers called the Church Watch.
Originally built by William the Conqueror, this World Heritage site has been used as a royal residence, prison, observatory, treasury, mint, and even a zoo.
Have you ever used the expressions: to kill with kindness, one fell swoop, or dead as a doornail? Those and hundreds of other expressions and words (excellent, critical, lonely to name a few!) are attributed to one of the greatest Brits that ever lived. In the shadows of the historically accurate recreation of the Globe Theater, learn about the less trumpeted side of William Shakespeare and his direct impact on our 21st century lives.
There has been a bridge here since the Roman occupation nearly 2000 years ago. Since then there have been around 10 bridges spanning the River on this sight.
Half way through the tour let us show you one of London's best historic pubs and treat you to drink (included!) in an establishment that has stood on the sight for the best part of 1000 years.
Attached to the houses of parliament, Big Ben actually refers to the 13 tonne hour-bell within the clock tower.
Harry Potter fans might recognise this as the film location for Diagon Alley. Once the center of Roman London, you'll learn how Queen Boudicca reduced this site and the rest of the city to just a thin layer of ash. A marketplace for the last 600 years, today you'll find a fantastic off-the-beaten-path place to shop.
The Monument was built by Christopher Wren to commemorate the Great Fire of London in 1666. The magnificent 61-metre column acts as a symbol of London's faith in itself and offers an amazing panorama of the surrounding area.
