Royal Pageantry
Soak up London's must-see sights on this comprehensive full-day tour of the capital. The tour begins with a drive past The Houses of Parliament, Downing Street, and Trafalgar Square.

Exclusively on this tour, see behind the scenes at the Household Cavalry and meet a trooper from the Household Guards. Continue to the historic City of London to see Christopher Wren's masterpice, St. Paul's Cathedral. The guided tour of the interior includes the newly cleaned Cathedral as well as access to the Quire to see the beautiful mosaics, not normally open to the public.
