Cutty Sark was the last and fastest tea clippers to be built in Britain, and you can learn all about its journeys across the oceans on board the ship itself. It is now permanently docked in London's leafy Greenwich area. Cutty Sark, an award-winning visitor attraction, is easy to reach via the DLR – it has its very own stop!

No trip to London is complete without a Thames River cruise. Get the lay of the land on the first day of your trip and sail through Central London to experience a unique view of the London skyline. Different Thames cruises offer both one-way and roundtrip options on a variety of routes with commentary from an experienced skipper, with sights including the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, St Paul's Cathedral, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, HMS Belfast, Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, and Tower Bridge. If you fancy capping off your stay in London and want to sum up your favorite sights over a pint with dinner (and more drinks), there's an option for that, too. Looking for more action than a leisurely Thames River cruise? Opt for a speedboat tour for an exciting, one-of-a-kind way to experience the lively city of London. Or, use the Thames River cruise as a main mode of transportation as you hop-on and hop-off all about this classic European city.

Though most famous for the imprisonments and beheadings held there it has, at various times, served as the royal residence, mint, menagerie, armory, observatory and as the holding place for the Crown Jewels - a function it still serves. Legend has it that six ravens must guard the tower at all times, or else the kingdom (as in United Kingdom) will fall. The ravens are still there, and so is this nearly thousand year old complex of stocky stone structures.

The Old Royal Naval College is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an architectural gem in Greenwich, London. Sir Christopher Wren's riverside masterpiece hosts some of the finest buildings and structures in the UK, including the Chapel of St Peter and St Paul, the Water Gates, the Victorian Skittle Alley, and the Painted Hall. Sir James Thornhill’s magnificent Painted Hall, is Britain's answer to the Sistine Chapel. The epic Baroque artistic masterpiece – with 40,000 square feet of awe-inspiring painted walls and ceiling – is an essential part of any visit to the Old Royal Naval College.

Kew Gardens occupy a whopping 121 hectares and have been on UNESCO's World Heritage List since 2003. The abundant flora and fauna will make you forget that you're in the London metropolis! Inside the gardens, you'll find an 18th-century Chinese pagoda, ornamental buildings, speciality plant houses, and a breathtaking treetop walkway that runs through the canopy of a forest glade and consists of a 200-metre walkway 18 metres above the ground. The grounds are also home to Kew Palace, initially bought by George III as a palace for the royal children. Many princes and princesses have been raised here. Later, it was put into use as a summer residence for the British Royals.
