  • 6:00 pm (earlier in winter)- Ghosts by Gaslight Spooky London Pub Crawl

These gentle, light-hearted walks, accompanied by friendly guides, show you the heart and soul of this great city. While your ticket is valid, you may take as many walks as you'd like absolutely free of charge!

Tour One: Royal London Walk (90 minutes includes Changing of the Guard)

This classic Royal London Walk takes you to the very heart of historic Royal London from St. James's Palace, former official residence of Prince Charles, to Buckingham Palace, celebrated home of the Queen, taking in one of the world's most spectacular ceremonies on the way - the Changing of the Guard.

Tour Two; Beatles Walk (90 minutes)

It's been 50 years since Beatlemania swept the world, so come along on a groovy Fab Four Tour celebrating the greatest rock band of all time. Soho and Mayfair are where the Beatles based themselves throughout their meteoric rise in the Swinging Sixties and where Paul McCartney still has his London office. Hear of John Lennon's cheeky remarks to the upper-crust VIP guests at a Royal Variety Show. Relive the fan frenzy at the premieres of their hit movies A Hard Day's Night and Help! Discover where they recorded their classic hit Hey Jude and see the nightclub where Paul first met Linda Eastman in 1967. Finally, stand outside the Beatles' famed Apple headquarters where they played their last rooftop gig in 1969. Join this tour that lifts the lid on the extraordinary world of John, Paul, George and Ringo!

Tour Three; Ghosts by Gaslight (90 minutes) The Spooky London Pub Crawl

Beyond the bright lights of the West End there co-exists an older, more chilling London of dimly-lit alleyways, gas-lights and ghosts. Hear tales of haunted underground stations. Chill to the foul deeds of demon barber Sweeney Todd. Learn how a black cat prevents fatal consequences whenever 13 dine together at a world-famous hotel. A pint of ale in a dark corner of an old tavern or two will chase away your fears. Join this walking tour - if you dare - on London's best ghost walk!

Free River Thames Cruise

Your tour ticket enables you to hop-on and off the river boat services operated by one of London's finest cruise companies. The river cruise includes live commentary and enables you to also see the sights of London from a different angle. Tower Bridge, HMS Belfast, Shakespeare's Globe and the Tate Modern Art Gallery are just some of the famous highlights along the riverside.

If you purchase a 24 hour ticket, you can travel on the Thames between Westminster Pier and the Tower of London. If you purchase a 48 hour ticket, the free River Thames cruise also offers you the chance to travel all the way to Greenwich and explore the National Maritime Museum and the Greenwich Royal Observatory. No matter how many times you tour the river, you'll always enjoy the sights and appreciate this unique view of London.

The river cruise departure times vary, but are approximately every 20 minutes in the summer and every 30-40 minutes in the winter.
