Return to your bus for a short ride to Trafalgar Square, where you can enjoy lunch in a traditional English pub (at your own expense). Try the fish and chips for an authentic and delicious treat.
Following lunch, it's time for your St. Paul's Cathedral tour. This remarkable structure, with its epic dome towering above London, was rebuilt in the 17th century after the Great Fire of London. More recently it was the location of the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, as well as the Diamond Jubilee for Queen Elizabeth II. The afternoon portion of your London tour also includes the chance to see Mansion House, where the Lord Mayor of London resides, as well as the Bank of England. At the infamous Tower of London, learn the dark tales of prisoners and traitors who met their end on that very site. The Tower is home to the priceless Crown Jewels, which are protected by the fantastically costumed guards known as Beefeaters. No trip to London is complete without seeing this remarkable display.
