Trip Itinerary

Open Top Vintage Bus Tour with Live Professional Guide
What better way to enjoy the highlights of London than from on board a Classic 1950’s Route-master Bus with a live professional guide?

Enjoy great views of the capital’s iconic sights, both old and new, including Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, St. Paul’s Cathedral, London Bridge, The Shard, Tower Bridge & the London Eye.

The Vintage Double Decker Bus Tour includes a photo stop at Westminster Abbey, burial place of Britain’s monarchs and the host for coronations and many royal weddings since its construction in the eleventh century. The bus stops again for photos at the Tower of London, multi-functional throughout history as a royal palace and a fortress, a prison and a place of numerous executions.  

The Tower of London
The Tower of London that was built nearly a thousand years ago and is now home to the Crown Jewels protected by the famous Beefeaters. The imposing former palace was once used as a fortress and a prison and you can see Traitors Gate where prisoners entered the Tower for the last time! We stop for photos and a history lesson from the guide before our cruise (no entry to the Tower of London)

Photo stop at Buckingham Palace
Buckingham Palace is the official Royal residence of Her Majesty the Queen, and  we make our way to the perfect spot to watch the world famous Changing of the Guard ceremony (morning tour only) as the Queen's soldiers, dressed in their fabulous tunics and busbies march to military music.  


Private guided cruise on the River Thames
Enjoy our new private and exclusive river trip that passes Shakespeare’s Globe, Cleopatra’s Needle, London Bridge and The Shard. Enjoy the magnificent view of the Houses of Parliament and Tower Bridge from the river before we arrive at Milbank/Westminster pier. (Private cruise exclusive to Premium Tours customers operates during summer months.)


Exclusive Cream Tea in the Georgian Restaurant at Harrods
The Georgian’s quintessentially English cream tea stands amongst London’s finest, and when enjoyed in such regal surroundings, is an experience to be savoured, remembered and repeated. Home-baked English scones served with clotted cream and Harrods exclusive preserves and this is accompanied by a glass of Prosecco and your choice of tea from Harrods own tea gardens. Relax and enjoy!

After tea the rest of the afternoon is yours to explore the store.
