Join an expert guide to admire two of London’s most royal sites. Firstly, stroll past St. James’s Palace; the most senior royal palace in the UK - built as an elaborate gesture by King Henry VIII to his then-wife, Anne Boleyn - before he beheaded her, of course. It’s here that the ceremony begins, as the New Guard set off for Buckingham Palace.

LONDON EYE

Ride the Ferris wheel that has fast become a symbol of London! Standing at an impressive 443 feet tall, the London Eye gives you unsurpassable views for over 25 miles. You will be able to get a bird’s eye view of many world famous attractions including Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, and the Waterloo railway station.

TOWER OF LONDON

See the Crown Jewels and escape with your head still attached at the Tower of London! Exactly 23,578 gemstones make up the Crown Jewels, the very symbols of Royal Authority! And, when they aren’t being worn by the current Queen, you can see them at the Tower of London. Not to mention, over 133 confirmed executions have occurred at the benign-looking Tower of London over the centuries - most famously, Anne Boleyn and St. Thomas More!
