  • A fun and informative excursion through London’s Old City
  • Discover scenic walking routes to historical sites
  • Stroll through London’s oldest district
  • Learn about the city’s deadly past, from the Great Fire to the plague
What to Expect
The tour begins in Covent Garden, a popular market that was once London’s most active red-light district. Your guide leads you down cobbled alleyways as you learn about the city’s colorful past. See London Bridge and Tower Bridge on your way. Visit St. Paul’s Cathedral, rebuilt after the Great Fire, and hear about the catastrophes that reshaped London’s history, including a plague that wiped out a third of the city. Revisit the cathedral’s famous events, like the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer. Stop at Mansion Beach and the Bank of England museum for a deeper look at London's history. The tour concludes with a peek at the Tower of London, an 11th-century prison. Listen to the grim tales of the tower’s prisoners, including Anne Boleyn, the second wife of Henry VIII, who was beheaded there in 1536.
