Description

Drive past some of London's most famous landmarks including Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, arrive at the Tower of London at the middle drawbridge and meet our very own Yeoman Warder. Enter this world heritage site before it opens to the public. Our Beefeater will take us on a private guided tour explaining the history behind this fortress of imprisonment and torture. Be first to see the Crown Jewels before enjoying some free time to explore on your own. Have the chance to visit Traitors Gate, the armories or the Bloody Tower and keep an eye out for the famous Ravens. Rumor has it that if the Ravens leave the Tower the monarch will fall!

Then head to The Mall to watch the Changing of the Guard ceremony as one of the Queen's Household Regiments march from St. James Palace to Buckingham Palace dressed in their world famous tunics and busbies.

Next, take a short boat trip on the River Thames and enjoy majestic views views of St. Paul's Cathedral and Shakespeare's Globe and then take a break for lunch. After lunch, have a photo stop at Westminster Abbey.

In the afternoon, visit the St Paul's Cathedral. Explore the masterpiece designed by Wren in 1673 with a professional guide, taking time to listen to the 1695 organ that Mendelssohn once played and visit the tombs of Nelson and Wellington. There will also be the chance to test the unique acoustics of the Whispering Gallery. On Sundays when there is restricted viewing at the Cathedral there will be an opportunity to enter and enjoy one of the services.

Finally, have an afternoon tea with assorted pastries, scones and cakes plus a glass of champagne at Park Plaza Westminster. A perfect way to end a beautiful day.

**Enjoy an exclusive private cruise in the morning for the entire summer season (April - October).
