2-3 London

With two days in London, there’s plenty of time to get a real feel for this buzzing cosmopolitan capital, where iconic black taxis and red double-decker buses flash past historic buildings.

Anything goes in London, so choose how you want to experience it.

During your time here, jump on the coach for a look at London’s iconic buildings and UNESCO World Heritage sites in our included tour. Learn about Big Ben, the Royal Family’s place of residence (Buckingham Palace), the horror tales of the Tower of London, and the magnificent Westminster Abbey, where Princess Diana’s funeral service was held.

You'll also learn about the darker side of London and it's most infamous serial killer, Jack the Ripper. Visit the sites of the horrific murders, learn about the most popular theories, suspects and more from your very own "ripperologist".

Opt to take a tour of the coolest London street art hot spots, including some famous Banksy originals.

With an included day pass for the London Underground take advantage of the tube system. Use it like a local and move around the city at your own pace. Some ideas for your free time include a ride on the London Eye for awesome views over the city, or a visit to the Tate Modern to check out some of the world’s most famous contemporary art.

You can rub shoulders with the stars by walking through world-famous Madame Tussauds waxwork museum. Otherwise shop in the colourful Camden Markets or hit Oxford Street.

If you’re keen for something a bit more off the beaten track, ask your Trip Manager for some tips.

On your last night in London experience a bit of London culture with a trip to a famous West End musical – it’s on us! Afterwards, round up some friends and hit the town. London has it all; jazz bars, traditional pubs, pumping clubs and loads of live music - take your pick and dive into the action.

Lamp-lit bridges and cool little cafés give us a real taste of Paris’ romance. Your Trip Manager will fill you in on the world’s most-recognised monuments, like the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe.

Get a feel for French flair by window shopping on the Left Bank, step into the Notre Dame Cathedral or explore the endless galleries of the Louvre and get up close to the famous Mona Lisa. Try indulging in some delicious pastries and relax in one of Paris’ many green spaces.

Give an optional bike tour a go and get off the beaten track and onto Paris' side streets with our Local Guide. Please note: The bike tour optional is not available on Winter departures

There’s a visit to Fragonard. This perfumery has an elegant interior and is a unique setting for a look into the history of perfume. It’s also a chance to pick up some French perfume at great prices.

Check out the impressive exterior of this extravagant palace. Then there’s an opportunity to explore the former Royal Family’s luxurious living quarters.
