Then it's on to the Tower of London, the ancient fortress steeped in centuries of murder and treason, guarded by jet-black ravens. The splendidly dressed Beefeaters will tell you about the Tower's history, including tragic tales of royals and nobles who met their end within its walls. You'll also see the fabulous Crown Jewels, including the 6,000-year-old Koh-I-Noor diamond and impressive coronation regalia.
You'll then continue by coach to the City of London, that famous square mile where brash new architecture towers above buildings dating back to medieval times. The Romans founded Londinium here 2,000 years ago, and the city's square mile of narrow streets follows the cramped medieval street plan.
You'll see the glorious dome of St. Paul's Cathedral, the elegant Mansion House, home to the Lord Mayor of London, and the nearby Bank of England, known as the Old Lady of Threadneedle Street, at the heart of the City.
London was built along the shores of the Thames 2,000 years ago, so taking a river cruise is one of the best ways to experience the city. You'll have stunning views of the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, the South Bank Arts Complex and, of course, London's famous bridges.
St Paul’s Cathedral will be closed to the public on December 8,22 2012, January 31, February 7, 13 (Ash Wednesday), March 29, (Good Friday) and April 30 , 2013. On these dates, there will be a photo stop outside the Cathedral and the tour spends longer at the Tower of London.

We enjoyed the tour. The history of the Tower of London was very interesting and our tour guide was well informed. I liked the fact that the boat ticket was good for another day. We had just arrived from the states in the morning and we needed a nap more than a boat ride. We took the river cruise a few days later and enjoyed it.
