St Paul’s Cathedral: We take you on a guided tour of the magnificent St Paul’s Cathedral, Sir Christopher Wren’s masterpiece.
The Tower of London and Crown Jewels: An iconic London landmark, the tower of London was founded in 1066 by William the Conqueror; each successive sovereign has enlarged and altered it and it has become an impressive fortress. The Yeoman Warders (aka Beefeaters) in their recognisable red-black-and-gold uniforms will regale you the tower’s fascinating – and sometimes gruesome – history. We also visit the spectacular crown jewels.
Thames River Cruise: You can choose to take the River Cruise and end your tour at Westminster Pier, or take the cruise on another day and head back to Victoria with your guide. River Cruise Tickets are one-way from Tower Pier to Westminster Pier (or vice versa).
Jack the Ripper
tour-guideThe coach takes you through the ‘dark side’ of London, while our expert guide fills you in on all the ‘gory details’ of Jack the Ripper and his ilk, starting at The Theatre Drury Lane, said to be the most haunted theatre in London. We see the Old Bailey, site of numerous public hangings, drive along Fleet Street, home of the legendary Sweeney Todd and his accomplice, Mrs Lovatt, and head for the notorious East End, hotbed of 19th century crime and vice. During the autumn of 1888, terror struck when Jack the Ripper came out of the fog and dimly lit alleys just long enough to stalk and butcher his five victims.
We leave the coach and walk his trail, inspecting the murder sites, deciphering the evidence and discussing the suspects. We will see the 10 Bells Pub, built in 1752 where many of Jack the Ripper’s victims were said to have drunk. To this day the case remains unsolved.
Enjoy traditional Fish & Chips en route (from April 2017): We stop off at one of London’s most authentic fish-and-chip restaurants where you can sample this quintessentially British meal as you continue your walking tour. We wander through Spitalfields market and explore its array of stalls.
