Full description
Start with a walking tour of the Westminster area, where your tour guide will escort you to 20 different historical and cultural sights. Head through Green Park to Buckingham Palace, admiring the well-manicured trees and flowers along the way. At the palace, watch the world-famous Changing of the Guard Ceremony. Afterward, see 17 other iconic London sights such as Downing Street, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and the Houses of Parliament.

Next, board HMS Belfast, the flagship of bombardment Force E, that supported troops landing at Gold and Juno beaches in the Normandy landing. Her first target was the German gun battery at La Marefontaine. As a result of HMS Belfast’s bombardment, the battery played no meaningful role in the defense of the beaches. Explore the ship and learn more about this storied vessel and the brave sailors who manned it.
