Take your seat on the beautifully restored double-decker bus and marvel at all of London’s highlights including Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye. Have your cameras ready as you stop for photos at Sir Christopher Wren’s masterpiece, St. Paul’s Cathedral, which contains impressive mementos and monuments to many of Britain's heroes including Nelson, Wellington and Churchill.
Next, sit back, relax and enjoy the London scenery en-route to the Tower of London. Built nearly a thousand years ago, this imposing building has been a palace, fortress and prison. Learn about the Tower’s famous Beefeater guards who are protecting its current treasure, the Crown Jewels and your guide will take you to see Traitors Gate where prisoners entered the Tower for the last time.
Until the early 19th century, London did not have any hotels, only coaching inns, which looked remarkably like modern multi-story motels, the rooms opening off outdoor corridors. The last (partially) surviving coaching inn is The George Inn, though only its pub component is still active.
