London was built along the shores of the Thames 2,000 years ago - what better way to experience the city than to travel along its river on a Thames River Cruise!

Get stunning uninterrupted views of the Gothic style Houses of Parliament, the London Eye perched high over the River, the South Bank Arts Complex built for the 1951 Festival of Britain and of course many of London's famous bridges.

Then it's on to the Tower of London where jet black ravens guard the ancient fortress steeped in centuries of murder, treason and the untold secrets of the condemned. Hear the tragic story of Lady Jane Grey - Queen for 9 days, and the story of the 2 young Princes who were never seen again, as well as other tales of royalty and noblemen meeting their end within the cold cruel walls of the Tower.

The splendidly dressed Beefeaters will tell you about the Tower's history, and of course you must visit the Crown Jewels including the 6,000 year old Koh-I-Noor diamond worn by all the Queens of England since Victoria as well as the other regalia used during coronation ceremonies.

Continue by coach to the City of London, which packs into its square mile bold, brash award-winning new architecture towering above dignified Victorian masterpieces to create a kaleidoscope of styles along narrow streets that still follow their medieval street plan. 2,000 years ago the Romans founded Londinium here, and the City's square mile to this day jealously guards its ancient ceremonies and traditions.

Hear about some of these arcane traditions and see the glorious dome of St Paul's Cathedral watching over the hustle and bustle of city merchants, the elegant Mansion House, home to the Lord Mayor of London, and the nearby Bank of England, known as The Old Lady of Threadneedle Street, at the heart of the City.
