After breakfast at The Park Plaza County Hall you will board a private coach for The Tower of London, one of the world’s most famous fortresses, which has served as royal palace, prison, armory and even a zoo. The ancient stones reverberate with dark secrets, priceless jewels glint in fortified vaults and pampered ravens strut the grounds.
Constructed over 900 years ago by William the Conqueror, the Tower of London is steeped in a rich history. This fortress was expanded by medieval kings and is a grand structure used by Royals through the years as a refuge and powerbase. The Tower is still home to Her Majesty’s Crown Jewels, on display for visitors to see, and the infamous Beefeaters tasked with the job of guarding them. We will have a private tour here, walking the hallowed halls and hearing stories about eerie experiences from the Tudors to the Windsors.
Our private coach will take you over to Covent Garden, a famous flower market turned central gathering place for London’s toniest shoppers. We’ll have lunch at the famous Punch & Judy Pub. Built in 1787, this pub was named after perhaps the most famous puppet show in the world. This pub is world-famous and is located facing the west plaza; from the balcony you’ll have the best view to watch the street performers.
Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre is next on our list to explore. The Globe is a reconstruction of the original Elizabethan playhouse in the London borough of Southwark, on the south bank of the River Thames. It was originally built in 1599 by the playing company the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, to which Shakespeare belonged, which was destroyed by fire on in 1613, caused by a cannon during a production of Henry VIII. The Globe was rebuilt by June 1614 but was officially closed by pressure of Puritan opinion in 1642 and demolished in 1644.
