London Shore Excursion Guide

Cruise lines offer a number of shore excursions for sale when visiting London. For your convenience, we have provided a sample listing below of the shore excursions typically sold by cruise lines that visit London. You may wish to check out 3rd party shore excursions in London to get a wider variety of options to choose from.

London City Tour

This guided coach tour drives you by several of the city's highlights, with planned stops for photographs along the way. Your included lunch occurs at an English pub. Highlights of this tour include seeing Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, and London Bridge.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay $160 for a 10 hour coach tour that includes lunch.
 
Booking Advice: Based upon experience, you can see all of the highlights on this tour, and have your pick of eateries as well, by taking a Hop On/ Hop Off Bus Tour on a double decker bus! Hop On/ Hop Off Bus Tours can be purchased by 3rd party vendors online for around $45, and you will need to purchase your own lunch. Because you're in London, locating an English pub should be relatively easy! One advantage of booking this tour through the cruise line, however, is your transportation to and from London.

Tower of London, Covent Garden, and Harrods

You first visit the Tower of London, built as a fortress by William the Conqueror and known as the Royal Prison and the place of some famous (and bloody) executions in English history. At the Tower of London, you'll see the Beefeater Guards, walk the winding passages, and see the Crown Jewels. You'll pass by St. Paul's Cathedral to tour Covent Gardens' restored Victorian shops and pubs. Your tour ends after your visit to Harrods, where you'll see some wild prices and an even wilder array of goods to buy! On this tour, lunch is on your own.

Booking Advice: This tour is rated as moderate regarding physical exercise due to the walking involved. Cruise line prices, in our opinion, are competitive.

Leeds Castle and Canterbury

Leeds Castle was home to queens, and is sometimes referred to as “Henry VIII's playground.” Here, you take a self guided tour, and then you visit Canterbury. The town of Canterbury is a wonderful place to see modern and Medieval architecture, cathedrals, and remnants of the city walls from the 1200's and 130's.

Canterbury Cathedral and the Town of Canterbury

Price: Adults expect to pay around $90 for this 9.5 hour tour.
 
Booking Advice: This tour is rated as moderate regarding physical exercise due to the walking involved. Cruise line prices, in our opinion, are competitive. You will need English pounds for tube tickets and admission fees.

Third Party Shore Excursions in London

Below are links to third-party shore excursion vendors in London. These links will launch in a new browser window and are external sites. We bear no responsibility for the content or services offered at these sites.
3rd party shore excursions often have advantages over shore excursions sold by the cruise lines. Third party shore excursions can be less costly and feature smaller groups than shore excursions sold by the cruise lines. Often, the vendors you buy from directly are the same vendors used by the cruise lines themselves.
 
The benefit of buying shore excursions from the cruise line is that the vendors and pre-screened for safety and reliablity. While cruise lines shore excursions can be more expensive than buying direct from a local vendor, there is certainly peace of mind that the cruise line will be using a reliable, safe and trusted vendor. If you experience a problem with the vendor on a cruise line-sold shore excursion, the shore excursion managers onboard the cruise ship will likely be an invaluable resource to help settle disputes.
