Description

Discover London and its fascinating tales on this adventure specially designed for the whole family. Cruise down the River Thames, and then venture to the infamous Tower of London to explore its mediaeval palace and learn about its eerie and entrancing past.

Set out from Embankment Pier, where your riverboat waits for you. As you cruise down the Thames, take a journey through history, listening to thrilling stories of the smugglers and pirates that once roamed these waters. Disembark at the Tower of London to learn of the fate that befell these dastardly characters when they were arrested.

Once inside the gates, your guide reveals the chilling tales and entrancing sights of this imposing fortress, used as a royal residence and notorious prison through the centuries.

As you explore, learn the story behind the ominously-named Traitor's Gate, as well as the legend of the ravens that stalk the grounds. Get the chance to gaze upon the bejewelled splendour of the Crown Jewels of England before your adventure comes to an end.
