What else is on at City Wonders?

Capital of the United Kingdom, home to the royal family, a cosmopolitan city at the crossroads of history, London has much to offer to both seasoned travellers and first-time visitors.

This Best of Royal London package is perfect if you're looking to visit London and want to learn about the royal family and feel connected to this incredible city's royal history. 

What will I see in the Best of Royal London tour?

From the macabre to the magnificent, begin your tour at the infamous Tower of London – former fortress, prison and execution site. This expertly curated early-morning visit to one of London’s most iconic landmarks avoids long lines and large crowds so you can experience its opening ceremony (if option selected) and be among the first to view the priceless Crown Jewels.

You’ll next step aboard a relaxing river cruise up the Thames as your expert, English-speaking guide points out major landmarks along its banks. Disembark this superior shuttle for a fully-guided walking tour through the Horse Guards to St. James and enjoy watching the Changing of the Guard. Your guide will make sure you are in the best spot for taking photos as they herald you with the history behind the pomp and pageantry.

Your tour ends at beautiful Buckingham Palace, the former royal residence of Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh. View the balcony from which royal decrees have been issued to the adoring public for generations. Your tour group of 25 people or fewer makes it easy to manoeuvre through these popular landmarks and destinations. Headsets are provided, when needed, so you can always hear your guide.
