Early-Access Tower of London Tour with Afternoon Tea in Westminster Abbey
US$135.47
Overview
Hop aboard a vintage double-decker Routemaster bus and travel in style across London. Uncover the city’s royal secrets and history with a guided tour from a White Tower Warden at Tower of London with time to explore at your leisure and see the Crown Jewels. After passing St. Paul’s Cathedral, London Eye, Tower Bridge, and Shakespeare’s Globe, stop for a bite to eat at Borough Market. Then head to Westminster Abbey, where William and Kate were married. Receive a guided tour of the Abbey before you're treated to a scrumptious afternoon tea with all the trimmings at the Abbey’s Cellarium Café.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with a visit to one of London’s most iconic attractions, The Tower of London. Be one of the first groups admitted on the day before proceeding to the most historic part, The White Tower. Here you will be welcomed by a White Tower warden for a talk on its unique history. Explore all four floors, including the Royal Armouries Collection, and see the Crown Jewels, which are part of the Royal Collection and still used regularly by the Queen.

Then head into the City of London, where you'll see St. Paul's Cathedral and the Bank of England, among many of London’s other famous landmarks, hearing more about the history of this fascinating city. Cross over iconic Tower Bridge before you visit Borough Market.

Borough Market is London’s most renowned food and drink market and dates back to 1014. Both a source of British and international produce, it consists of more than 100 stalls and strands. Producers from all over the country bring a range of fresh produce to the market including fish, meats, vegetables, ciders, breads, cheeses, coffees, and cakes. You'll have time to explore the many stalls and enjoy some of the local delicacies before heading to Westminster Abbey.

Steeped in more than a thousand years of history, the Abbey has been the coronation church since 1066 and is the final resting place of 17 monarchs. The present church, begun by Henry III in 1245, is one of the most important gothic buildings in the country. Take a comprehensive tour as your guide brings the story of the Abbey to life. Top off the day with a sumptuous afternoon tea at the Cellarium Café located inside the Abbey complete with sandwiches, scones, cakes and your choice of tea. Your tour will end here so you can enjoy your afternoon tea at your own pace.

Please note: A state of the art audio-guide system is used during the walking sections of this tour. You'll receive a personal headset to ensure you never miss a word of the guide's commentary.

Great tour and guide!

The grumpy-tired-tourists-attitudes of both of the receptionists almost scared me away, but once we got on the bus with Charlotte, it was a great day. Charlotte shared lots of interesting history at each stop, and was careful to include everyone with her attention. Then there...More
