What to expect

Kick off your day at one of London's most iconic attractions, St. Paul's Cathedral. With no fewer than seven chapels, countless statues and priceless artwork inside, there are historical and religious treasures around every corner at St Paul's. You'll have the chance to dive into the history of this stunning cathedral with the help of your informative audio guide before heading off to your next stop of the day, The Tower of London.

You'll discover the Tower's disturbing past as you see the place where many spies, criminals and queens met their bloody end. However, it's not all blood and gore, the Tower of London is also home to the priceless Crown Jewels collection which includes the world's largest cut diamond among crowns, robes and other ceremonial regalia.

After you've admired the jewels, you'll make your way to Tower Pier and hop on the next available boat for a cruise along the River Thames. Enjoy London from a new perspective as you admire the waterfront on your way to Westminster Pier. It's the perfect way to take in the city without the traffic!

You'll round off your tour in Whitechapel, the hunting ground of the killer known as Jack the Ripper. Your expert guide will take you to the real-life murder locations and paint a picture of life in Victorian London during that period while giving you the facts about the murders. You'll visit Spitalfields Market and see the Ten Bells pub, before heading to one of London's oldest, most authentic 'chippies' for some traditional fish and chips.
