Pirates of the Caribbean 4

Jack Sparrow and Barbossa embark on a quest to find the elusive fountain of youth, only to discover that Blackbeard and his daughter are after it too.


The Solution


Set sail along the River Thames on a guided tour of this ancient waterway. Raise the Jolly Roger as the vessel cruises from the Houses of Parliament, passing Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.

Land ho! Moor at Greenwich and search for the fountain of youth. The Royal Observatory was a major filming location for the movie. Then make an amazing discovery; the point at which time began! Stand on the meridian line as time stands still for an age defying moment.

Back on shore explore the pirate haunts of old London Town. An exclusive private tour introduces the historic locations of Tyburn and The Old Bailey – now on the site of Newgate Prison. Pirates were incarcerated at Newgate prior to hanging at Execution Dock or Tyburn.

Tread carefully down the Wapping Stairs, board replica Pirate ships at Tobacco Docks and onto St Katherine's and Gunpowder Docks. Stop for lunch at the Captain Kid pub, and perhaps a tot of rum.
