The tour will begin at the Houses of Parliament (aka The Palace of Westminster) and the Elizabeth Tower where you will also learn the history of Big Ben.
You will then make your way to Westminster Abbey, the church, burial ground, and coronation site that has attracted visitors over the past 900 years, as well as Parliament Square and then Buckingham Palace - the Queen's official residence since 1837. As you travel through Pall Mall, you will reach Trafalgar Square where the National Gallery, St Martin in the Fields Church, and Admiral Nelson's Column are all located. You will then proceed to Whitehall and through Downing Street, passing Number 10 (the home of the Prime Minister), as you travel alongside the River Thames. The London Eye will greet you directly across from the home of New Scotland Yard.
As you progress further along the Thames, the road will take you to Monument and Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece St. Paul's Cathedral. Then you will visit the Tower of London, an attraction that is unpleasant for some as it houses the most popular instruments of torture in medieval England. You will have the opportunity to explore the neighbourhood for your further enjoyment. You will walk along the bridge and get some nice photos. You will be shown the best possible picturesque spots for taking photos that provide you with memories that will last a lifetime; photos of famous sites that include the beauty of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, and of course the beautiful River Thames.
