DAY 2 - London

London

Good morning London! How you spend your day is up to you - use your included Travelcard to check out eerily lifelike celebrity waxworks at world famous Madame Tussauds, opt to see the skyline from a peerless perspective on the London Eye, get spooked out at the London Dungeon and more. In the evening, have some fish and chips and a pint in a local pub. After all that exploring, you've earned it.
