Our St Paul’s Cathedral and Tower of London Tour takes in two of London’s most impressive attractions and explores Westminster, the heart of Political and Royal London. 

We begin with a walking tour of Westminster

The Tour begins at Westminster Abbey, giving us the chance to marvel at this magnificent Church from outside, before making our way to Buckingham Palace.  Can we recognise whether His Majesty is home today? Let’s find out. Why not stop here for a group photo. Walking down through royal parks and the Mall, we catch a glimpse of either the King’s Guards or the Cavalry, both if we are lucky!

Next we move on to Trafalgar Square, the city centre of London.  Walking towards Whitehall, to see where the Prime Minister lives and works, then heading on to Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.  This provides a great opportunity for iconic pictures of these world-renowned sites.

 

 

 

What to Expect on a Tour of St Paul’s Cathedral?

St Paul’s Cathedral is a beautiful church with a unique history. Built in just 35 years by one architect in a consistent style, its position in this part of the London skyline is protected by law. From the main entrance, we are afforded an unobstructed view down the cathedral, which is a great time to appreciate both the size and style of this church.

We’ll begin our St Paul’s tour by exploring the main floor first, which houses memorials of many national heroes, as well as many works of art both old and new.

We then have the opportunity to climb right to the top of the church! We’ll pass the whispering, stone, and golden viewing galleries along the way. A terrific view is your reward for the 528 steps you must climb!

From the highest point to the lowest, we’ll continue to the crypt in St Paul’s. We will witness the final resting place of many of the heroes memorialised on the main floor, such as Admiral Nelson and The Duke of Wellington. Your guide will make sure you don’t miss two models of the cathedral, an excellent comparison between the old Gothic structure and the “modern” English baroque version.

This will complete our tour of St Paul’s Cathedral itself. But don’t worry, there’s plenty more to see!

A Tour of the Tower of London

 

Let’s now continue our journey east towards the Tower of London, a medieval fortress surrounded by modern architecture.

We explore this castle both inside and out, meeting the famous ravens of the tower, seeing the Crown Jewels, and hearing all the gory stories about this Palace throughout the years.

Beefeater is not just a brand of a gin, it’s another name for the Yeoman Warders. You can’t miss them, they are always around, proudly wearing their uniforms and always happy to pose for a quick photo.

On exiting the Tower we will have a spectacular view of the world-famous Tower Bridge.

Your private London walking tour finishes here and your guide will be happy to assist you with directions or help you find a taxi to your next adventure.

Perfect day We had a day tour of Westminster Abbey and London Tower with Marina today. It was outstanding! Can't say enough good words about it. Not every tour guide can keep 8 y.olds interested for two hours. She did it for the whole day! Marina is very knowledgeable and passionate about her work. She adjusted the tour to our liking and was very attentive to everybody's needs. Hope one day we will have more tours with her! Thank you Marina and "Let me show you London" company!

So worth it! Excellent, in depth tour. Our guide, Denisa, was knowledgeable and entertaining. We had 2 adults and 3 teens, and she kept all of us engaged in the experience. She customized the tour for our interests/ages. We visited the Tower of London, saw the Tower ravens (Poppy came out to meet us), stopped at Traitors’ Gate, explored the Bloody Tower… We even saw “the word,” the ceremony in which a Beefeater gives Tower Soldiers the new password for the day. Last, we saw the crown jewels. The collection and it’s history are really something! We thoroughly enjoyed our time!

Amazing Visit to London I took a group of first time London visitors to the city in June. Because we had limited time there (just 1.5 days), I decided to enlist the help of Denisa at Let Me Show You London and we ended up arranging two private tours - one private tour of the British Museum on our arrival afternoon and a full day tour of Westminster, St Paul’s Cathedral, and the Tower of London. Marianna was our guide for both tours and she was amazing. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic, she made both tours great. We even experienced a fire alarm at the British Museum and she was proactive in talking to the guards to see if and when we had to evacuate and once we did evacuate, she again didn’t hesitate to ask how long it would take to re-enter. Even I, who has been to London numerous times and who has visiting all of the places before, thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Since it was warm and we walked a lot, she was very conscientious about our energy level and made quite a few adjustments at the Tower of London to minimize steps, but again the tour was still fascinating. I would definitely work with both Denisa and Marianna again in the future.

The highlight of our UK trip This was an unforgettable experience for the whole family, including our 8 year old daughter. Our tour guide Lucy was excellent, and it really helped to have an expert explain each of the areas we explored. There is so much we would have missed without her. She really brought the place to life with her storytelling and expertise. Did I mention how well the kids liked her too! If you are going to splurge on one thing in London, this is it.
