Where you'll be

We’ll get the best spot to see the Changing of the Guard, out of the crush of the crowd but still with great views. We’ll spot the details that others miss on the Millennium Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral. We’ll get to the top gantry to cross high above Tower Bridge. Alex, local lad and professional tour guide, will point out hidden gems and tell the extraordinary back-stories at every corner.
