One of the largest churches in the world, its dome is an incredible 366ft high and, inside the Whispering Gallery, it is said that a gentle whisper can be heard on the other side of the dome almost 112ft away. Explore the history behind this famous Cathedral and see the tomb of Lord Horatio Nelson, one of Britain's most revered icons.
The Tower of London Guided Tour
A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, the history of 'The Tower' has been intertwined with the history of England for almost a thousand years. Originally built by William The Conqueror in 1066, it has served a number of functions during its long history, including a prison, luxury palace for royalty and even a zoo. The priceless crown jewels are also held within the castle walls, along with the largest collection of medieval armour and weaponry in the country. See all of this and hear more about the tower's bloody history on a comprehansive tour with an expert guide.
Changing of the Guard
Elite soldiers from the military have been guarding English Kings and Queens since 1660. Known as the 'Household Division', these regiments are so devoted to their duty that they will famously not acknowledge, nor allow themselves to be distracted by the public. During the ceremony, immaculately turned out guards are accompanied by marching bands playing a rousing mix of military and contemporary music in a display of the sort of pomp and military ceremony that has made the British military famous around the world.
