The Tower of London
One of the most famous buildings in the world, the Tower of London was constructed in the 11th century – almost a 1,000 years ago and has been witness to countless significant events in the development of Britain’s now democratic monarchy.
During your tour of the Tower of London you will meet the magnificent Yeoman Warders or ‘Beefeaters’, clad as they were in Tudor times, hear the legend of the ravens and spine chilling tales from the Tower’s long history. See the infamous Bloody Tower where the Princes were murdered, Beauchamp Tower where visitors can read carved inscriptions of past prisoners and Traitors Gate where those unlucky enough not to survive imprisonment had their heads impaled – and much more.
We sell at less than the gate price, which gives you access to all the Towers and Attractions, as well as the unique Gift Shops, the historic New Armouries Restaurant, Tower Cafe and Kiosk. Your Tower ticket also includes entry to the Crown Jewels.
St. Paul’s Cathedral
Designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the late seventeenth century, St Paul’s Cathedral is one of the world’s most beautiful and best-loved buildings. A potent symbol of the life of the nation, its stones have absorbed the hopes, fears, sorrows and joys of generations; an enduring symbol of both the past and the present. Majestic, timeless and atmospheric, St Paul’s welcomes many thousands of visitors through its doors each year for services, concerts, debates, educational events, performing arts and sightseeing. Recently transformed by state-of-the-art restoration techniques, the light flooding the internal space of the Cathedral highlights the luminescent Portland stone and brings mosaics, carvings, paintings and sculpture to life.
Visitors and worshippers can witness Wren’s original vision and see his Cathedral as crisp and magnificent as the day it was completed. Gazing up into Wren’s crowning glory, the lofty and awe-inspiring Dome of St Paul’s, is just one of the highlights of a visit to this remarkable Cathedral. But of course, the pinnacle of any trip to St Paul’s has to be the winding journey up the spiral staircase to the Whispering Gallery to sample its unique audio effects before travelling up and out to the Stone and Golden Galleries, which afford a panoramic view of London that is second to none.
