With your fantastic guide on board with you, you'll never be left wondering what you're seeing: they will regale you with stories of London's fascinating history, varied culture and beguiling intrigue. Without ruining all the surprises which this tour entails, you will see the Albert Memorial, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and much, much more!

You will also get to visit St Paul's Cathedral and explore its enormous dome, hearing how Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece took 35 years to complete. Next you'll head to the formidable Tower of London which was built by William the Conqueror in 1066 and which holds a whole host of gruesome and fascinating history.
