The London EyeDespite being widely ridiculed when it first opened, the London Eye is now one of the most recognizable and loved structures in London. On a clear day, it offers you a truly spectacular, panoramic view of the city.
Tower BridgeOne of the most stunning and iconic bridges in the world, Tower Bridge was built nearly 60 years into the reign of Queen Victoria and during the height of the British Empire. You will have the opportunity to take photos at its most spectacular vantage point then cycle across it.
St. Paul's CathedralSt. Paul’s Cathedral is the defining masterpiece of Sir Christopher Wren’s architectural genius. The ground upon which it is built has been considered sacred for thousands of years.
The Tower of LondonOriginally built by William the Conqueror, this World Heritage site has been used as a royal residence, prison, observatory, treasury, mint, and even a zoo. The top of the list of recognizable prisoners includes: Saint Thomas More, Sir Walter Raleigh, Guy Fawkes and Anne Boleyn.
Shakespeare's GlobeIn the shadows of the historically accurate recreation of the Globe Theatre, learn about the less trumpeted side of William Shakespeare and his direct impact on our 21st century lives.
London BridgeThere has been over 10 bridges on this site dating back to Roman times nearly 2000 years ago. Some were carried away by the tides, others burnt down and one was pulled down by a vengeful king giving rise to the famous nursery rhyme "London Bridge is Falling Down".
A Drink in a 400 Year Old English PubHalf way through the tour let us show you one of London's best historic pubs and treat you to drink (included!) in an establishment that has stood on the sight for the best part of 1000 years.
Big BenAttached to the houses of parliament, Big Ben actually refers to the 13 tonne hour-bell within the clock tower. London first heard the chimes on May 31, 1859.
Leadenhall MarketHarry Potter fans might recognise this as the film location for Diagon Alley. A marketplace for the last 600 years, today you'll find a fantastic off-the-beaten-path place to shop.
The MonumentThe Monument was built by Christopher Wren to commemorate the Great Fire of London in 1666. The magnificent 61-metre column acts as a symbol of London’s faith in itself and offers an amazing panorama of the surrounding area.
