Tour Overview

Your excursion begins at the pier in Dover as you board your motorcoach and travel the motorway to London's West End. Pass by Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square with its imposing Nelson's Column, and the National Art Gallery.

The neo-Gothic Parliament Buildings dominate the banks of the RIver Thames. You'll continue your panoramic drive with a stop close to Parliament where you will also see iconic Big Ben. Be sure to snap a picture of the impressive clock, as Big Ben is as potent a symbol of England as the White Cliffs of Dover.

You'll pass by Whitehall on the way to Westminster Abbey. Stop at the historic Abbey to snap a shot of its gorgeous Gothic exterior. The Abbey is the site of coronations and funerals for Britain's royal family.

Another huge icon and English landmark is Buckingham Palace. This is the official Royal Palace of the British monarch since Queen Victoria ascended the throne. Official occasions of the state and Royal events are held here. The palace features the largest private garden in London.
