St Paul’s Cathedral is the first place we will visit on our full day tour of London. This is one of the most instantly recognizable cathedrals in the world. The cathedral has been here for over 1,400 years, and after the 1666 Great Fire of London was rebuilt by Sir Christopher Wren – a task that took him 35 years to complete. It has played an important part in national life and is where the funeral of Sir Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher took place. It is also where Prince Charles and Diana got married in 1981. The dome was inspired by St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City and is the second-largest cathedral dome in the world. The tomb houses over 200 monuments, including the tombs of Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and the architect Sir Christopher Wren.
the Tower of London:
The Tower of London is one of the highlights of our full day tour of London. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is recognized as one of England’s most iconic landmarks. It was built in 1066 by William the Conqueror to demonstrate the power of the Norman conquest, as well as to act as a fortress and gateway into London. Today, it is the best-preserved 11th Century fortress-palace in Europe. The palace has become a symbol of both royalty and terror. It was used as a prison for hundreds of years, and during those times saw many executions.
Our full day tour of London ends with a ride on the London Eye. After a long day seeing the best sights in the capital, sit back and relax as you take a 30 minute ride. The London Eye is located on the River Thames, and you’ll get to take in wonderful views of the city. On a good day you can see views of up to 25 miles!
