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.
