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.
