Spirit of London Tour

If you wish to explore London's past as well as delve into its current cosmopolitanism, the Spirit of London tour is ideal. See the traditional Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, visit the Tower of London and St Paul's Cathedral and enjoy a cruise along the River Thames.

Enjoy a whistle stop tour of London's famous monuments and marvel at the history of London's modern masterpieces from the comfort of your coach seat. Have your cameras ready for the photo stop at the spectacular Westminster Abbey. Your tour then continues to St Pauls Cathedral.

Towering high over the City of London, magnificent St Paul's Cathedral is widely considered to be Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece, spend time here admiring this iconic building. (Please note, there is no guiding in the cathedral on Sundays).

Afterwards, head to Buckingham Palace where you can watch the Changing of the Guard. As iconic an image of London as red telephone boxes and double-decker buses, the Changing of the Guard is a not-to-be-missed royal feast of bearskin hats and red tunics. The Queens Foot Guard in their regal uniforms march alongside the military band to the Palace. (The tour visits Horse Guards Parade when the ceremony is not available).

Enjoy an extended visit to the Tower of London. During its 1000-year history this impressive fortress has been a Royal Palace, prison, mint and even a zoo! Here you can see the Cullinan diamonds and the spectacular Kohi-i-Noor at the Crown Jewels before Joining a Yeoman Warder ('Beefeater') for an exclusive and very different view of the famous Tower of London on a guided tour around the fortress's moat. You will hear the story of the peasants' revolt and attack on the Tower of 1381, the military cunning used to ensure the safety of the Monarch within, and how the Tower's very architecture protects it from attacks.

Your tour of London finishes with a sightseeing cruise along the River Thames which takes you past the London Eye, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and stunning St Paul's Cathedral and ending at Embankment Pier.

You will also have the chance to visit Greenwich by boat and enjoy a free walking tour and take the cruise from Greenwich to London Eye Pier or London Bridge Pier.
