Vintage Bus Tour of London, Private Boat Cruise & Westminster Abbey - Morning Tour

Vintage Bus Tour of London, Private Boat Cruise & Westminster Abbey (AM)
What better way to see the highlight of London than from on board a vintage double-decker bus? Enjoy great views of Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye as we meander through the streets and history of our great city. The tour also includes a boat trip on the river Thames which is on private hire and is exclusive to Premium Tours and the chance to see the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace.

The Tower of London
Join us at 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 into the Tower on this tour)

Thames Private Boat trip
Next we take a private & exclusive boat trip on the River Thames as we enjoy excellent views of St. Paul's Cathedral and Shakespeare’s Globe.

Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace is the official Royal residence of Her Majesty the Queen. Watch the world famous changing of the Guard ceremony as the Queen's soldiers, dressed in their fabulous tunics and busbies march to military music.

Westminster Abbey
Come and experience more than a thousand years of history at Westminster Abbey. It has been the coronation church since 1066 and is the final resting place of 17 monarchs. The present church, begun by Henry III in 1245, is one of the most important gothic buildings in the country.
