London's fascinating sights
Combine a visit to the Tower of London with a River Thames dinner cruise - the perfect way to see some of the capital's most famous landmarks. Time to shop, and to explore the attractions that make London such an exciting and colourful place, completes this marvellous overnight break.
Single rooms are available for a supplement
Leaving the local area, this morning we'll head to the capital and our overnight hotel. After you check in there may be time for some shopping and sightseeing before we head to Tower Pier to board your evening cruise vessel.
Enjoy a hot two-course buffet dinner and a glass of wine as you cruise up-river past St Paul's Cathedral, the stunning replica of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, the Millennium Bridge and Tate Modern. Turning once you reach the spectacular London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben you'll then head down-river, looping past Canary Wharf and historic Greenwich, before returning to Tower Pier.
After breakfast, we'll head to the Tower of London for our morning visit. Join one of the Yeoman Warders for a guided tour and hear tales of intrigue, imprisonment and execution. Explore the Royal Armouries collection in the White Tower, and see the body armour once worn by Henry VIII. Stroll around the medieval palace, learn about the legend of the famous ravens and - of course - marvel at the spectacular, priceless and breathtakingly beautiful Crown Jewels.
After our visit, you'll have time for some personal shopping and sightseeing before we leave London in the mid-afternoon, arriving back at your original departure point by mid to late evening.
