Day 1 - Arrive London (7 Nights)
Embrace the pomp and pageantry of a city that marches to its very own vibrant tune - yours to explore before meeting your Travel Director and fellow travellers this evening for a Welcome Reception to kick-start your grand exploration of London.
Accommodation: The Tower
Meals: Welcome Reception

Ease into London's energetic pace before embarking on an included half-day sightseeing tour with your Travel Director, which features Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey. See the stately Changing of the Guard before your sightseeing tour finishes in central London. Spend the rest of the day enjoying a slice of London culture, or join an Optional Experience to the Tower of London to see the magnificent Crown Jewels and meet the Yeoman Warders of Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress. This evening, we enjoy a delicious meal at Heddon Street Kitchen in the heart of the West End - one of Chef Gordon Ramsay's most-celebrated London eateries.

Day 3 - Excursion to Windsor Castle and Stonehenge
Regal traditions and ancient monuments take centre stage today as we embark on a full-day excursion from London. Visit Windsor Castle, one of the Queen's elegant homes, including the superb Georgian State Apartments and St. George's Chapel. Then spend some free time for lunch in this historic market town. Our next stop sees us delve into the history of the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe - the ancient circle at Stonehenge, before returning to London.

Day 4 - London At Leisure or full-day Optional Experience to Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and the Cotswolds
Armed with your 3-day travel pass, London truly is your oyster. Your Travel Director will give you suggestions on how to make the most of your full day at leisure. Walk through 'The City' exploring the oldest part of London - the imposing dome of Christopher Wren's St. Paul's Cathedral, Leadenhall Market's ornate façades and the Tower of London, with its grim history and extraordinary royal heritage. Pay tribute to Admiral Nelson in Trafalgar Square and wander down The Mall to Buckingham Palace, the official London residence of the UK's sovereigns since 1837. Alternatively, consider a full-day Optional Experience to the enchanting Cotswolds, visiting Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon, with a stop in the university town of Oxford to admire the towering spires of cathedrals, churches and colleges.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 - Westminster Abbey and Kensington Palace with English Cream Tea
Imagine the kings and queens who have glided gracefully up the 13th-century mosaic floor of Westminster Abbey. We'll have an opportunity to explore this architectural wonder on a guided visit with a Local Specialist. Find out why this church lost its cathedral status and pay your respects at the Tomb to the Unknown Soldier. Later, visit Kensington Palace and 'Dive Into Culture', gaining insights into the lives of the Royal Family. Tour the Royal Palace, which was once home to Diana, Princess of Wales, and now houses the private apartments of her son Prince William and his wife Kate. Indulge in a delicious English cream tea in The Pavillion surrounded by beautiful formal gardens before returning to your hotel.

Use your London Oyster card to traverse the length and breadth of London. Perhaps visit the British Museum, whose global treasures are symbolic of the extent of the Empire in centuries past, or the Imperial War Museum, sharing the story of modern warfare from World War I to today.

This tour really fit well for my 15 year old granddaughter and me. We were taken to visit so many iconic sites and with enough free time for us to explore others on our own( see comments below on how awesome the tour guide was with directions and which transport to use). The Oyster card included was great. Restaurants chosen were good, especially Gordon Ramsay's Heddon Street as the food was delicious. We liked the optional West End experience so much as well as the Tower of London. Afternon tea at Kensington Palace Pavillion was definitely a highlight.Also liked going out of London to Windsor and Stonehenge , plus seeing the countryside on this day. Our hotel location couldn't have been better! All in all, we were very pleased with this tour.
