What You Can Expect

London Old City Walking Tour

See the Tower of London on a walking tour

In the afternoon, meet your guide in central London and set off on an entertaining walking tour of Old City. Begin with a short history of Covent Garden, a colorful area that was once London’s most active red-light district. Then stroll along cobbled alleyways to reach the Strand and Fleet Street, home of Britain’s national newspapers until the 1980s.

Continue on to St Paul’s Cathedral, London’s highest point for more than 1,400 years. Rebuilt after the Great Fire of London, St Paul's has hosted many national events including the wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Lady Diana Spencer. Afterwards, visit the nearby Roman Temple of Mithras and the Monument, the world’s tallest freestanding stone column. As you stroll through London's oldest district, learn more about catastrophic events like the Great Fire that reshaped the city and the plague that killed a third of London’s population.

Conclude your tour with a stop at the Tower of London. Learn how this 11th-century stronghold of William the Conquerer became a palace, prison and gruesome execution place, and hear tales of prisoners like Anne Boleyn – Henry VIII's unfortunate second wife – who met her end there in 1536.

Your tour ends at the Tower in the evening.
