This summer we aren’t going to see many tourists in London. It is going to be a unique opportunity to enjoy the iconic Tower of London to ourselves and its going to feel like going back in time to the 1960’s. And of course, to the Normans, the Middle Ages and the Tudors! Arriving in the capital at lunch time, we enjoy an included lunch of the best fish and chips in London, served with peas and a hot drink included. The restaurant is also fully licensed so alcoholic drinks can be purchased, you are not driving, so enjoy. Afterwards in the company of a top notch, entertaining Blue Badge Tour Guide, we enjoy an interesting little City of London tour from the coach en-route to the Tower. On arrival the guide will tell the story of the Tower of London from William the Conqueror to the last state prisoner Rudolf Hess. You will see the Yeoman Warders, better known as the Beefeaters, the ceremonial guardians of the Tower and the legendary ravens who live there. You’ll see the Crown Jewels, used in every coronation. You’ll ponder the horror of arriving at the Traitor’s Gate, hear stories of the Bloody Tower, discover the “privilege” of a Tower execution and contemplate some ghosts and come away with a real understanding of 1000 years of the Tower of London as a palace, prison, fortress and place of execution. We will be on our way home, hopefully after the roads have quietened down.
Price: £64.50 includes return travel by luxury coach, fish and chip lunch, a short, guided coach tour of the City of London and entrance to the Tower of London with guided tour.
Please note: The walking on this excursion is kept to a minimum, but it isn’t going to be suitable for people who use 2 sticks or a rollator. If this is you and you’d like to come we’d advise using a folding wheelchair and having a friend with you to push.
