Tower of London - private tour away from the crowds…
Leaving Victoria Coach Station we arrive at the Tower of London. Leading us into this world heritage site before it opens to the public, our Beefeater will take us on a private guided tour explaining the history behind this fortress of imprisonment and torture. We are also amongst the first group to see the Crown Jewels.
Thames River Boat trip & Westminster Abbey
Next we take a private & exclusive boat trip on the River Thames as we enjoy excellent views of St. Paul's Cathedral and Shakespeare’s Globe.
Changing the Guard
Departing the Tower we head to The Mall to watch the Changing of the Guard ceremony.*
After free time for lunch we enjoy a photo stop at Westminster Abbey before heading for St. Paul's Cathedral.
We start the afternoon part of our tour with a visit to St Paul's Cathedral. This masterpiece was designed in 1673 by Sir Christopher Wren. On Sundays when viewing is restricted, there will be an opportunity to enter and enjoy one of the services.
The Georgian’s quintessentially English cream tea stands amongst London’s finest, and in such regal surroundings, is an experience to be savoured, remembered and repeated. This delightlful cream tea includes home-baked English scones served with clotted cream and Harrods exclusive preserves, accompanied by a glass of Prosecco and your choice of tea from Harrods own tea gardens. Relax and enjoy!
After tea the rest of the afternoon is yours to explore the store.
