What to Expect
You and your expert guide will crossing Tower Bridge past the Tower of London to explore Southwark on the south bank, home to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Sir Francis Drake’s ship, the Tate Modern and so much more.

For hundreds of years, Southwark existed as a separate entity to London and, being outside its jurisdiction, became a medieval Las Vegas – a place of bishops and brothels, theaters and thieves, pirates and pubs. Southwark though was also host to some of the greatest figures of English literature, such as Chaucer, Shakespeare and Dickens. Today it is home to the world’s most popular modern art gallery, the Tate Modern. This tour includes a rich mix of history, sites and stories, and is not to be missed!

The Thames flows through London and the pages of history, shaping the city and its fortunes from the earliest of times. It has acquired a vast amount of historical and cultural importance far beyond its English shores, bringing together Roman and modern London and everything in between. Follow in the footsteps of pirates, adventurers, conquerors and poets and see London from a whole new angle.

The river is the oldest feature of London. The Thames has been a border and barrier, bringer of life and death, as well as both wealth and poverty. It has been a source of water and power. Along it’s winding miles is a mirror of the country and humanity at large from the pure springs at its source to the polluted depths at its mouth. It passes through small picturesque English villages and gentle countryside to the roaring metropolis and industrial port of London. London evolved along the banks of the Thames and with it England. Few rivers have this much history and had this much effect on the world while only measuring a mere 215 miles long.
