What You Can Expect

Viator VIP: Exclusive Access to Tower of London and St Paul's Cathedral with Lunch

Explore St Paul's Cathedral on a VIP tour!

Your Viator VIP London tour starts at the Tower of London, which you'll enter before the public opening. Meet your guide as well as one of the tower’s Beefeater guards who will personally show you around. The formidable 11th-century tower was built to act as a fortress, palace and prison — terrifying Londoners and foreign invaders alike. Watch the historic opening ceremony, where members of the military escort march around the tower with the Beefeaters to open it for business.

On your tour of the tower, see the Crown Jewels — a dazzling collection of jewels and diamonds that are still used today by the Queen. Stroll along the East Wall Walk for a bird’s-eye view of the city streets, explore the White Tower, and see the ravens that have lived here since the reign of King Charles II. The superstitious king believed the tower would fall if the birds left.

Next, walk to nearby St Paul’s Cathedral, the much-cherished architectural icon that’s home to the Triforium, an area typically closed to the public but open to you! Standout features include the Dean’s Staircase (featured in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) and a medieval library. See both, and then marvel at the vertigo-inducing views toward the nave. In addition to the Triforium, visit the Whispering Gallery and Crypt, too. Finally, enjoy a 2-course lunch at The Restaurant at St Paul’s Cathedral (located inside the Crypt), and relax amid contemporary décor while dining from a classically British menu. Your experience finishes here.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Our guide Sheila was excellent. Very knowledgeable. On this tour we were able to access parts of St Paul's not seen by the general public. It was a fantastic tour that ended with the group having a delicious lunch down in the Crypt. Something different! Highly recommend this tour.
