London

About the city

Of all European capitals, London lives deepest in the imagination of travelers. We absorb London before we know it exists and when we finally approach the city, it does not disappoint. There are the red double-deckers, the bobbies and impassive guards at Buckingham, Westminster Abbey, and the notes of Big Ben, sounding familiar, as we have heard them before. We see these things with satisfaction. Yet there is much to surprise. London is not quaint. London is not a museum, though you could spend all of your time going from one to the next. It is a booming, urban sprawl, with traffic snarls, shops, and an astonishing international population. Visit the many monuments with nearly a millennium's worth of history, from the grave of Chaucer to the pub where the captain of the Mayflower drank to Piccadilly Circus, one of London’s most photographed sights. But don’t miss contemporary London, with its intensely active theatres, international cuisine, political demonstrations, the latest in music and fashion, punks and peers, and everyone in between. In 1777, writer Samuel Johnson said when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life, and the phrase is still true. There's something different to experience every day in London.

Tower of London

day 1 - General admission
The Tower of London, founded by William the Conqueror in 1066-87, is one of the world’s most famous fortresses yet despite its grim reputation as a place of torture and death, there are so many more stories to be told.


Highlights
- Peruse around one of the world’s most famous fortresses
- See where English monarchs were imprisoned many moons ago
- Feast your eyes on the legendary Crown Jewels

The ancient stones reverberate with dark secrets, priceless jewels glint in fortified vaults and ravens strut the grounds. The Tower of London will show you a more sinister side to the City.

The world famous collection of fabulous finery and regalia – the Crown Jewels is housed in a Jewel House, fit for the 21st century. The priceless collection holds some of the most legendary and extraordinary diamonds in the world. The Crown Jewels at the Tower of London are a unique working collection of royal regalia and are still regularly used by the Queen in important national ceremonies, such as the State opening of Parliament.

Beefeater tours - This body of men and one woman has guarded the fortress for centuries. Join one of their tours and you'll be amazed and possibly appalled by tales that have been passed down for generations. Pain and passion, treachery and torture, all delivered with their inimitable style!

The Tower of London was built over 900 years ago by William the Conqueror, the Tower of London is steeped in a rich history. This fortress was expanded by many medieval kings and has been used through the years as both a refuge and a power base. Situated in central London, just a stone’s throw from the River Thames, the Tower of London is the one of the city's premier attractions. With so much on offer, there’s no wonder it's so popular with visitors.

Take in fascinating history and architecture with a tour to the Bronze Age site of Stonehenge, the historic cathedral city of Salisbury, Windsor Castle and the Unesco World Heritage Site of Bath; renowned for its elegant Georgian architecture and ancient Roman baths.

Stonehenge
Marvel at mysterious of Stonehenge, which has withstood the elements and man for 5,000 years. Almost 80 stones, some weighing up to 40 tons, still stand. How did they get there? What was its purpose? Was it a burial site? Was it an astronomical clock? Learn more about this ancient monument that continues to puzzle scholars to this day.

Bath
Enjoy a panoramic tour of Bath, passing the impressive Gothic Abbey which dates back as far as the fifteenth century. Guarantee the best views of the city from the picturesque Pulteney Bridge.

The Queen often spends her weekends here so you might be lucky enough to be at the castle whilst she is there. The castle boasts 13 acres of land which means that there is plenty to see and do there such as watching the guard changing, admiring some of the most treasured artwork including pieces from Rembrandtm Rubens and Canaletto or exploring the most famous and most spectacular dolls house in the world.

Salisbury Cathedral
Visit what many consider the finest medieval cathedral in Britain. The 123 metre spire is still the tallest in England and marked a revolution in cathedral architecture when it was built 800 years ago. In the Chapter House, see one of only four existing original copies of the Magna Carta, the famous agreement made between King John and his barons in 1215.
