Know More about this tour

Your tour begins with a visit to one of London’s most iconic attractions, The Tower of London. Be one of the first groups admitted on the day before proceeding to the most historic part, The White Tower. Here you will be welcomed by a White Tower warden for a talk on its unique history. Explore all four floors, including the Royal Armouries Collection, and see the Crown Jewels, which are part of the Royal Collection and still used regularly by the Queen.

Then head into the City of London, where you'll see St. Paul's Cathedral and the Bank of England, among many of London’s other famous landmarks, hearing more about the history of this fascinating city. Cross over iconic Tower Bridge before you visit Borough Market.

Borough Market is London’s most renowned food and drink market and dates back to 1014. Both a source of British and international produce, it consists of more than 100 stalls and strands. Producers from all over the country bring a range of fresh produce to the market including fish, meats, vegetables, ciders, breads, cheeses, coffees, and cakes. You'll have time to explore the many stalls and enjoy some of the local delicacies before heading to Westminster Abbey.

Steeped in more than a thousand years of history, the Abbey 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. Take a comprehensive tour as your guide brings the story of the Abbey to life. Top off the day with a sumptuous afternoon tea at the Cellarium Café located inside the Abbey complete with sandwiches, scones, cakes and your choice of tea. Your tour will end here so you can enjoy your afternoon tea at your own pace.

  • This was the best tour I have been on! Our guide was excellent and very informative with a great personality! We had a great day!

  • We booked two events through Viator - London Airport Private Arrival Transfer and Early-Access Tower of London Tour with Afternoon Tea in Westminster Abbey.

    Our driver royally screwed up and we ended up 90 minutes late for our tour. Once Evans Evans realized what was going on, the tour director left the group at the Tower of London they were on free time, went wherever he needed to, got additional admission tickets for Tower of London, found us and enabled us to enjoy this part of the tour. He was a champ! The tour guide was knowledgeable, interesting, entertaining and perhaps most important - caring.

  • This was an amazing day trip and our guide Deborah was amazing! We loved every minute of it.

  • Deb, our tour guide, was amazing and we were thrilled when we got her for another tour a few days later. The Tower of London was incredible as expected as was the Abbey. We had enough time to wander around and Deb was a fountain of knowledge, Borough Market was lovely as well. Afternoon tea consisted of several kinds of little sandwiches and pastries, scones and tea, of course. It was the perfect way to begin our trip!

  • Enjoyed this tour very much! The wardens are great story tellers, very animated. You could easily spend 2-3 hours roaming the grounds. The Royal jewels were beautiful. I'd recommend this Tour to friends and family.

  • I've been on lots of tours, and this one was excellent. We were transported in a 50-year-old double Decker bus which was very comfortable. There were only 12 of us on the tour which was nice. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. We had an early tours at the Tower of London way before the crowds arrived with ample time to look around on our own afterwards. We then took the bus to the borough market where we had an hour to shop and grab some lunch. The food there was great and it was hard making a choice, But I would definitely recommend the oysters! We then drove through London to Westminster Abby. Our tour guide, Lezlee, lead us through the Abbey with interesting commentary. The tour ended with a beautiful tea with all the fixings at the restaurant in the Abbey. A really fun and informative day. I would highly recommend it!

  • Excellent. Sheila was awesome. Just a note For seniors or people with disabilities, there is an extremely large amount of walking so if you are physically challenged, you will be allowed to sit at times but it is still extremely taxing. Don't forget to take money to buy great items at Burroughs Market. Our favorite place was Westminster Abbey, words just cannot describe how breathtaking it is. A must see while in London. The afternoon tea at the end was the perfect finish to this great trip.

  • We saw so much in one day! Our guide, Sheila, was amazing! The bus ride was terrific and Sheila provided lots of background info. The Tower tour was so detailed. Tea at Westminster was the perfect ending to the best day!

  • This was a great beginners tour of London! Lesley was wonderful. Afternoon Tea was very satisfying.

  • This would have been a great tour if not for traffic delays. Our guide was exceptional wealth of knowledge. He was proper Englishman who adapted well to the traffic delays with endless historical and entertaining stories. Tea at Westminster Abbey was excellent. This is peak season with endless tourists and crowds.
