Welcome to London, England ~ Heart of the British Empire

Start your morning sightseeing in style as your Story Local Host® and Expert Guide unwraps London for you!

Historic London Panoramic Tour
The romance of this historical city of London Town is apparent every step of the way. London England on the Small Group TourOur experience in London with our official Blue Badge Guide will include views of Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Hyde Park, the Houses of Parliament, St. James Palace and Buckingham Palace. We will enjoy certain perspectives by foot with our local guide.

We will have time for lunch independently near the Tower of London.

Guided Tour: Tower of London
We enjoy a visit and admission to the Tower of London. Upon arrival to the Tower of London, the Beefeaters guide us through this special venue. A completely included experience that takes us back in time to the early 1080s. William the Conqueror began to build a massive stone tower at the center of his London fortress and nothing like it had ever been tried or seen before. Through the centuries that followed, successive monarchs added to the fortifications.

The balance of the day is yours at leisure to explore London perhaps like the locals via the Tube. There are several venues and sites located around the Tower of London that you may want to optionally visit including St. Pauls' Cathedral (free admission) or take a ride on the London Eye. The Tower Bridge is also nearby.

Maybe a Full Afternoon Tea or the now famous, Harry Potter Walking Tour. You may also consider the Royal Mews (carriage house) at Buckingham. Or consider a shopping trip to world famous Herrod's or simply stroll Hyde Park.

Return to the hotel at your leisure using your new knowledge of the London Tube (this routing is very easy!) or opt for a taxi.
