  • 81/2
    hrs Estimate Duration

Enjoy a sightseeing tour of one of the greatest cities of the world, London, the capital of the United Kingdom. Acquire an overall impression of London, its red buses, friendly “bobbies”, impressive churches, imposing statues and elegant pubs. Pass its most important monuments such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, St. Paul's Cathedral, Houses of Parliament and London Bridge. You’ll have some free time in central London for shopping and lunch on your own.


Then, visit the Tower of London, one of the most famous fortified buildings in the world. Begun in 1078 by William the Conqueror, the Tower has been a palace, prison, treasury, arsenal and even a zoo! Today the Tower houses the priceless Crown Jewels. Also on view are the Medieval Palace, the infamous Bloody Tower and over 90 inscriptions made by prisoners in the Beauchamp Tower.


Need to Know:

Note: While the Tower welcomes all visitors, this historic building has places with difficult stairs and passageways so wheelchair access is limited. There are also a large number of steps throughout the Tower with cobblestones laid in some of the roads. The Jewel House and the Crown Jewels are fully accessible to all visitors. Restrooms have easy ramped access available behind the Jewel House. A limited number of wheelchairs are available from the Welcome Centre at the main entrance to the Tower. This tour is not recommended for guests with walking difficulties as the Tower of London includes stairs to visit different areas. We recommend comfortable walking shoes. On October 6th, 2015, this tour is offered for in-transit guests returning to Norwegian Star only.
