What To Expect
Next head to the banks of the Thames River, where you get an up-close view of the formidable Tower of London. Built by William the Conquerer in the 11th century, the site has a long and stormy history as a prison and execution site. Before continuing on, hear a bit about the famous Beefeater Guards and the Crown Jewels that are housed in the impenetrable fort.
At Tower Pier, board a sightseeing boat and grab a seat in the glass-encased saloon or on the open deck. Drift in comfort along the banks of the historic Thames River and discover London’s history through lively audio commentary. Relax as the boat makes a short loop under the London Bridge, passing the Houses of Parliament, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, and the London Eye.
After your cruise, hop back on the bus and head to Buckingham Palace to watch the famous Changing of the Guard ceremony. Marvel at the precision and tradition of the ritual, performed by the Queen’s Foot Guard and a military band. Your tour concludes back at your original departure point.
