I loved the cruises as they gave me an overview of the sights and allowed me to plan a walking map for myself. I got on at Tower of London and off at Westminster. Friendly staff and a good commentary.

grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
