Arriving in London around midday, we met our top-notch Blue Badge Tour Guide to buy an early lunch in the famous Borough Farmers Market. Housed under the railway arches in the Victorian market you can virtually eat your way around the market or settle for a market pub or café. There will also be time for a peek inside the lesser-known Southwark Cathedral. After lunch enjoy a very entertaining and gentle walking tour on London’s Bankside with our guide using the crystal-clear VOX Wireless Tour Guide system. You will wear the lightweight, receiver on a lanyard and you’ll be given a set of disposable in-ear headphones. For people using hearing aids there are special over-the-ear headphones. The sound is crystal clear so you will not miss a word the guide is saying. Southwark’s Bankside was the Soho of Elizabethan London and memories of a racy past echo in the cobbled riverside lanes. A delicate rose window survives from the Palace where the Bishops lived cheek by jowl with the brothels and bear pits. In a raucous neighbourhood, the sheer scale of the depravity would make a modern sybarite blush. But, there were rules and the really bad could end up in the infamous clink. Late afternoon we visit The View From The Shard and experience breathtaking views of London 800ft above the city. Take in the 360-degree panoramic views of up to 40 miles. You will still have your VOX sets so you can still enjoy snippets of commentary from the guide wherever you are up at the top. With the built-in Weather Guarantee, if you cannot see at least 3 of the following 5 landmarks during the time of your visit, you’ll receive a complimentary return ticket, allowing you to return to The View From The Shard within 3 months, absolutely free – London Eye, 20 Fenchurch Street, Tower Bridge, One Canada Square, St Paul’s Cathedral. We will be on our way home, hopefully after the roads have quietened down.
Price: £61.00 includes return travel by luxury coach, guided walking tour of Southwark’s Bankside and visit The View From The Shard.
