Description

Let us read you the story of London, a tale of two cities. From a visit to the Tower of London in the old city to a walking tour in the regal city of Westminster, join us for the Ultimate Royal London experience. From crowns to confessions, the Tower of London has been watching over the city and the river Thames since its founding in 1079.

A spectacular tower, it has lived many lives- as a mint, an observatory, a zoo, an armory, a royal palace, a treasury, and most notoriously, as a place of execution. Home to both the Beefeaters and the Crown Jewels today, the Tower’s story is intrigue, scandal, and ceremony waiting to be discovered.

Meet your expert English-speaking guide who will give you the lowdowns and highlights of this 11th-century fortress before you go inside the Tower to discover it on your own. Top tip- head straight for the crown jewels, meet the ravens and don’t miss the White Tower, the oldest part. Rejoin your guide for a relaxing cruise of the River Thames as you hear the stories of St Pauls, Shakespeare’s Globe, the Romans, and the impact this great river has had on the lives of Londoners since its banks were first settled.

But your experience does not stop there!

Great tour and amazing tour guide! We loved Richard's passion for the history and could listen to his stories all day! Never felt rushed and always felt we were seeing and hearing the history of the important items at the places we were visiting. Will use Urban Saunters again!
