Overview

Enjoy a perfect introduction to London with this combo package that showcases the grand city at its finest. Be driven around the city and admire the iconic sites of London followed by a scenic cruise on River Thames.

See the architecturally impressive Parliament Square and the gothic Westminster Abbey, where coronations and Royal weddings have taken place throughout British history as well as Kensington Palace, a Jacobean mansion on the edge of Hyde Park. You will also see Big Ben, arguably London’s most iconic site. See the Royal Albert Hall, where many of the world’s most prominent artists have performed and the Albert Memorial, commissioned by Queen Victoria after Prince Albert’s death in 1861.

You will then head to St James' Park and Buckingham Palace to witness the colourful ceremony of the Changing of the Guard. Accompanied by a military band, a detachment of the Queen's Foot Guard march to Buckingham Palace to change with the old guard.

Go on a lovely scenic cruise down the River Thames and admire the sight of London attractions from the water. Pass by sites like the London Eye, HQS Wellington, and the reconstructed Shakespeare's Globe theatre before disembarking by the Tower of London.
