Essential London - you really couldn't be anywhere else. A classic collection of the capital's most iconic landmarks awaits you on The Jubilee Walkway. Designed to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977, the original route connects all of the city's most famous sights, from Buckingham Palace to the stately dome of St. Paul's.

Later, to celebrate Her Majesty's 50 years' reign two additional loops were added encompassing Bloomsbury and the City itself.

Marvel at the majesty of Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece, St. Paul's Cathedral then shudder at the fate of traitors passing through the Tower of London. Join the throng across the Thames at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and let the array of arts and antiquities inspire you in the Tate Modern and British Museum. And it's an entertaining stroll from the silver screens of Leicester Square to the ceremonial pageantry of Horse Guards Parade in St. James's Park.

Walk the Walkway at different times - by day and then again by night when the main sights are illuminated to spectacular effect. It's a unique route linking entertainment, assembly, ceremony, open-air activity and indeed our nation's history.
