Morning: Explore St Paul’s Cathedral and see Changing the Guard
Hop aboard a private, air-conditioned coach for an early-morning, whistle-stop tour of central London.
Next, explore one of the city’s most magnificent buildings: St Paul’s Cathedral. Step inside Sir Christopher Wren’s architectural masterpiece and discover its striking interior, before climbing up to the Golden Gallery for sweeping views of the capital.
Afterwards, head to Buckingham Palace for a quintessential display of British pomp and pageantry, as you watch the famous Changing the Guard ceremony. See the Queen’s New Guard exchange duty with the Old Guard – all active British Army soldiers clad in traditional red tunics and bearskin hats.
Noon: Enjoy a packed lunch and visit the Tower of London
Tuck into a delicious packed lunch, before making your way to the Tower of London, a royal fortress famous for being the prison (and execution place) of choice of one of Britain’s most notorious monarchs: Henry VIII.
There, you’ll get the chance to go on a one-of-a-kind tour of the palace with a Yeoman Warder, or “Beefeater”. Learn about the Tower’s fascinating history, stand where famous heads have rolled, get to grips with swords and armour, and take a closer look at the priceless Crown Jewels.
Afternoon: Discover Greenwich and ride the London Eye
It’s time to jump aboard a riverboat for a relaxing ride along the Thames to one of London’s most charming and underrated neighbourhoods: Greenwich.
The home of time, Greenwich is where eastern and western hemispheres meet. Discover its historic attractions, impressive buildings and panoramic views on a guided walking tour. You’ll take in iconic sights including the world’s last surviving tea clipper, Cutty Sark, and another one of Sir Christopher Wren’s architectural gems, the Old Royal Naval College.
As you head back into central London by boat, sit back and enjoy the city’s skyline, before seeing it from above with a thrilling ride on the London Eye. At 135 metres, this feat of design and engineering is the world's tallest cantilevered observation wheel. The 360-degree views are incredible and the perfect way to round up the afternoon.
