Westminster Abbey:

In this glorious church, there have been sixteen royal weddings and plenty of coronations and funerals. Perhaps the most famous events that have happened here (in recent memory) are the 1997 funeral for Princess Diana and the 2011 marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
From Charles Dickens to Charles Darwin, some of Englands most accomplished luminaries are interred in Westminster Abbey. There is a lot of cultural history buried here, which your guide will bring you through as you walk down these hallowed halls. Please note that photography is strictly forbidden in the Abbey. Changing of the Guard Selected from across seven branches of Englands military, the Queens Guard comprises some of the most elite soldiers in the world. One of the most revered traditions of the Guard is the Changing of the Guard, which takes place every day without fail. Passed down for generations, it is one of the most popular attractions in London, which can make for some pretty sizable crowds.

The Tower of London:
The walls of this great fortress have been witness to some of the most significant moments of Englands long history. William the Conqueror first built this place in the 11th century as a fort, but it soon became the prison of choice for those who made themselves enemies of the crown. Your guide will bring you through the dark history of this haunted place.
There was once a time where kings had unlimited power and everything was bent to their whim. Henry VIII was perhaps one of Englands most unchecked in his power. He kept many of his enemies in the Tower, such as Sir Walter Raleigh and two of his wives, Anne Boleyn and Katherine Howard. Your guide will bring you through the complex politics behind their imprisonment, and the historical context that made such a place possible.
