Tour Highlights

 

A Drink in a 400 Year Old Pub

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.

 

The London Eye

Despite being widely ridiculed when it first opened, the London Eye is now one of the most recognizable and loved structures in London.

 

Tower Bridge

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

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.  In more modern times, this is where the world mourned the loss of Sir Winston Churchill and celebrated the fairytale wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana.

 

The Tower of London

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.  

 

Shakespeare's Globe

The words excellent, critical and lonely are attributed to one of the greatest Brits that ever lived.  In the shadows of the historically accurate recreation of the Globe Theatre, learn about the less trumpeted side of William Shakespeare and his direct impact on our 21st century lives.

 

London Bridge

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. The most famous is the one was purposefully pulled down by a vengeful king giving rise to the famous nursery rhyme "London Bridge is Falling Down."

 

Big Ben

Attached to the houses of parliament, Big Ben actually refers to the 13 tonne hour-bell within the clock tower, first heard on May 31, 1859.

 

Leadenhall Market

Harry Potter fans might recognise this as the film location for Diagon Alley. A marketplace for the last 600 years, today you'll find a fantastic off-the-beaten-path place to shop.

 

The Monument

The Monument was built by Christopher Wren to commemorate the Great Fire of London in 1666. Take in many of London’s iconic sites.

Unravel the mystery and romance of the city’s riverside by twilight.

Discover London's best historic pubs with a complimentary drink.
