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.

There’s also an optional excursion to see the UNESCO World Heritage site of Stonehenge. Choose to get up close to the famous ring of stones and learn more about the legends surrounding them.

A trip to Bath means a look into a gorgeous city, complete with terraces, promenades and heritage buildings. Get the background on the city’s name and Roman past in an optional excursion to the stunning Roman Baths.

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 Tour 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! Afterward, 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.
