The Harrods London Bus tour:
Open-Top Double-Decker Bus Tour
Jump on board our beautiful vintage double-decker bus as we begin our tour by taking in some of London’s best-loved monuments, including Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye and Westminster Abbey, where Prince William married Kate Middleton. Here we will stop for photos.
St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower of London
One of the most spectacular of London’s landmarks, St. Paul’s Cathedral dates back to 1675. The funerals of Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and Sir Winston Churchill all took place here and it was also here that Lady Diana married Prince Charles. Next, we head to the Tower of London, which was built by William the Conqueror nearly a thousand years ago. Designed to subjugate and terrify Londoners while deterring foreign invaders, it remains a formidable place. Used both as a palace and as a prison, today the castle is home to the Crown Jewels and the famous Beefeaters who protect them. We will also stop for photos here before heading to Tower pier.
Cruise on the River Thames
A leisurely cruise up the River Thames provides fabulous views of Cleopatra’s Needle, Shakespeare’s Globe and London Bridge before we disembark at Westminster Pier, get back on the bus and travel to Buckingham Palace.
Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace
We arrive at the official residence of the Queen in good time to witness the renowned Changing of the Guard ceremony, as the Queen’s soldiers perform their traditional duties, dressed in their illustrious uniforms.
Finally we head to Harrods, the world famous department store, located in Knightsbridge in the centre of London. The tour ends here leaving you time to shop and explore. Why not enjoy a delicious lunch or take afternoon tea in the fabulous Georgian restaurant located on the fourth floor of the store?
NB. When the guard change does not take place, we stop instead for photos of the Horse Guards Parade. In the afternoon we stop for photos at Buckingham Palace.
