Experience the London in a Day Walking Tour with Tower Bridge Visit & River Thames Cruise

Starting minutes from the breathtaking Tower of London, your guide will explain our ancient beginnings before leading you into the warren of cobbled streets that makes up the heart of The City of London.

Taking in both World famous sites and hidden away gems, you will be transported through the ages on your way to a pre lunch visit into Tower Bridge where you will get the chance to take in one of the most breathtaking views available (included in the price). The morning portion of this tour is designed to give you a real understanding of the history of our ancient city, and is perfectly complemented by the afternoon London in a Day walking tour.

After a break for lunch in London's largest and oldest food markets, Borough Market, your afternoon tour meets outside Southwark Cathedral. 

Starting with an unforgetable boat ride down the Thames from London Bridge, the afternoon really allows us to focus on both the breathtaking architecture and fascinating history of Westminster.

From the hustle surrounding The Houses of Parliament to the peace and tranquility of the Smith Square Conservation Area, allow your guide to tell you a story that has not only changed our City, but the World. You will be told of some of the most important and colourful characters from our History, for William The Conquerer to Winston Churchill. Spend three and a half hours with us and walk away knowing more than most native Londoners.
