Your Experience

Enjoy this opportunity to get the best of London in one day! Begin by seeing the whole of London in a panoramic coach tour, guided by an experienced London expert. Pass by Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and take a photo stop at the iconic Westminster Abbey. Pay a visit to the Tower of London, the famous fortress with a torturous history spanning over 1000 years. See the glittering Crown Jewels guarded with the utmost security in the Jewel House of the Tower. If that wasn't enough, take advantage of your entry to St. Paul's Cathedral and admire it's beautiful structure and artwork, a true haven in the middle of the urban jungle that is modern London. If your legs are sturdier on water then jump onto a boat for your relaxing river cruise, where you can admire the sights of the city from a different perspective after you've enjoyed a walking tour of lovely Greenwich, chock full of maritime history.

Head to the tallest building in Western Europe: The Shard! It is an unbelievable 310 metres high and the viewing platform boasts 360-degree sights that span an incredible 40 miles. Zip up to the viewing gallery on floor 72, using the lift that travels six metres per second, and take in the most spectacular views in London at the end of an amazing day in the city.
