    London, UNITED KINGDOM
    The capital city of both England and the United Kingdom has been a focal point of Western civilization for centuries. This amazing city in the British Isles is famous for places like Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and Westminster Abbey.

    Big Ben

    Big Ben
    "Big Ben" is actually the name of the bell inside the clocktower located at the northern end of Westminster Palace. The tower itself is officially known as "Elizabeth Tower." It is one of England's most recognizable landmarks.

    Trafalgar Square

    Trafalgar Square
    This large plaza in central London is a popular tourist attraction. The square is home to several monuments, sculptures, and fountains, but the one that features most prominently is Nelson's Column, a 170-foot-tall war memorial.

    St. Paul's Cathedral

    St. Paul's Cathedral
    Sitting atop the highest point in London, this cathedral is woven deeply into the national identity of England. Figures such as Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher are buried here, and Princess Diana's wedding took place here, among many other occasions.

    On Sundays, due to church services, there is no guiding inside the cathedral.

    Tower of London

    One of the most famous palaces of the British monarchy, Buckingham Palace dates back to 1705. In addition to serving as a museum and art gallery, it has been the main residence of the royal family since 1837.

    River Thames

    River Thames
    The longest river in England and second-longest in the UK, the River Thames is a staple of London. Many of the cities most famous landmarks either sit on it, such as the Tower of London, or cross over it.

    The changing of the guards

    This world-famous ceremony takes place either at Buckingham Palace or at Horse Guards Parade, depending on the day. These guards will wear red tunics and unmistakable bear skin hats, marching to Buckingham Palace.

    We will visit Horseguards Parade when the ceremony is not available.
