Tour itinerary

St Paul's Cathedral

We will 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.


Please note on Sundays there will be no guiding inside the cathedral due to church services.

Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace

Next a short photo stop outside Westminster Abbey before we head for the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace.


If the Changing of the Guard is not taking place due to bad weather you will still take a photo stop at Buckingham Palace.

Free time will be given for lunch and the guide will be happy to recommend places to eat.

The Tower of London

The afternoon part of the tour begins with a visit to the Tower of London. Arriving at the Tower of London built in 1066 by William the Conqueror, our guide will regale you with fascinating insights into the history of this Royal Palace and fortress.


Ample time will be given to view the Crown Jewels and the White Tower and to wander around this imposing fortress.
