Your adventure will start with a trip to the outskirts of London, to Hampton Court Palace, for a guided tour of Henry VIII's magnificent Tudor retreat.

Returning to London after Lunch, we will include a visit to the remains of the Roman Amphitheatre within the Guildhall Art Gallery, which is also home to the City of London's copy of the Magna Carta.

Taking in a view of the UNESCO World Heritage site at the Tower of London, one of three in London, before talking you through the Great Fire of London which gave rise to the rebirth of many buildings including St Paul's Cathedral, possibly the largest memorial to the devastation left behind the fire.

We will stop at several sites and some walking will be necessary within this tour.
