Full description
Explore London’s major landmarks near the Tower of London & London Bridge. You will receive a good idea of the history, culture, and legends of one of Europe’s best-loved cities. You can head over London Bridge, receive views of the Tower of London, Europe's tallest building "The Shard", the HMS Belfast Second World War battleship, and the famous square mile financial district.

Next, you will continue to Borough Market, a well-known film location featured in the Harry Potter movies. You will then head to Southwark Cathedral and the Golden Hinde, and Sir Francis Drakes ship. On the way to Shakespeare’s Globe Theater, you see some of London's oldest streets as well as the United Kingdom's oldest prison, The Clink. This area is steeped in history, complete with old warehouses and cobbled streets. You will see Winchester Palace, which is still half standing to this day. Your final stop will be the Tate Modern Art Gallery, and a famous pub called the Ring, where modern-day boxing's rule book was first conceived.

Later, you will head to the Tower Bridge. Once there, you can explore the engine rooms and discover the unsung heroes who kept this icon in motion, all set amongst the original steam engines, coal burners, and accumulators that once powered the raising of Tower Bridge. You can uncover the fascinating histories of cooks, coal stokers, and engineers. Later, immerse yourself in this atmospheric space, where exciting interactive exhibits, newly commissioned films, and never before displayed photographs will explore and explain the role of this dynamic workplace at the heart of Tower Bridge.
