Description

Unless you're running the London marathon, it'll be nigh-on impossible to see the whole of this giant city in just a day. But this comprehensive, guided walking tour gives you a jolly-good overview as it hits most of the English capital's iconic spots.

Your quest around the city begins inside Westminster Abbey, where you can view the tombs of legendary figures Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Dickens, as well as hearing all the interesting titbits from the royal weddings down the years within this stunning Gothic setting.

From there, your attention will turn to happenings across St James's Park, where you'll take in either the world-famous Changing of the Guard from Wellington Barracks, and/or, depending on the day of your tour, Buckingham Palace and the equally impressive Changing of the Queen's Life Guard.

Before luncheon, your group will learn some fascinating secrets of Trafalgar Square, under the fixed gaze of Lord Admiral Nelson. The pigeons have gone, mostly, but the hawk-eyed among you might catch sight of the winged security that's hired every day to keep the plaza's former residents away.

After linking back up with your guide for the second half of the tour, your feet will get the rest they deserve as you boat down the River Thames for a water-level view of the London Eye, St Paul's Cathedral, the Shard, Tower Bridge, and other notable points of interest.

Once you disembark your river rover, your guide will accompany across Tower Bridge (remember your camera!), then through the bloody, tumultuous history inside the Tower of London. Explore its eventful journey through murder, haunting and mystery, before ending your day with an opportunity to ogle the Royal Family's Crown Jewels.
