Good day, London! After an included full English breakfast we join our Blue Badge Guide at the Tower of London.

Its ancient stone walls hold some of the city’s darkest secrets and we are privy to a few of them during our narrated tour. Take a snapshot of neighboring Tower Bridge as we embark for a delightful sail on the River Thames. Later, we partake in a favorite pastime of locals, Afternoon Tea.
