Discover London on a quick trip over the pond. Head on the original sightseeing tour to take in the biggest landmarks like Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace before touring historic pubs and heading outside the city proper to see Stonehenge, Bath, and Windsor Castle.


This 4-day London vacation showcases the many sides of England’s capital, from the historic pubs that supply its folksy charm to the ruins and castles that define its neighbouring regions. It’s a perfect city stay for globetrotters wanting to experience London’s many-faceted charms.

Your England vacation centres on London, one of the most-visited cities on the planet—and justifiably so. With history stretching back to Roman times and some of the finest architecture, galleries, and culture on the planet, people have been prioritizing London vacations for centuries. Start with the original London sightseeing tour, which flits you around the city aboard a Hop-on Hop-off bus tour, stopping off at the most iconic landmarks, including Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, the Tower of London, and Buckingham Palace. Next up is the Historic Pub Walking Tour, which takes you to three of the city’s most famous pubs, including the Anchor Bankside where river pirates and smugglers would swap stories of their exploits. Close out your time in downtown London by riding the Cola-Cola London Eye. This spectacular Ferris wheel whisks you 135m above the city, where you can admire London’s world-famous architecture with unobstructed, 360-degree views.

Continue your England vacation by popping outside of London to see the nearby highlights. First stop is Stonehenge, the mystical rock formation that is at least 5,000 years old and was likely a site of worship for ancient Britons. Next up is Bath, home to Britain’s only hot springs and a site of ancient Roman ruins. Here you’ll be able to enjoy the 46.5°C waters and learn about the Romans at the Roman Baths Museum. Your final stop is Windsor Castle, home to Queen Elizabeth II and the largest and oldest continuously-occupied castle in the world. Marvel at the castle’s size and admire some of its many treasures, from Queen Mary’s elaborate dolls house to the tombs of Henry VIII and Charles I. Then back London proper, where you can have one last pint and fit in some fish and chips if you haven’t already. Consider extending your stay in London, as it’s a city you’ll want to explore in full.

This London vacation gives you a taste of the iconic sights the city has to offer.

Day 2

England in one day

Stonehenge. First we head straight for Stonehenge the most popular prehistoric monument in the world. Come and marvel at the huge 40 ton Sarsens and the volcanic blue stones that were brought from Preseli mountains over 280 miles away. Discover the mysteries that surround the slaughter stone and see the numerous earth barrows where the beaker people lie buried before heading through the Salisbury plains towards Bath.

Bath and the Cotswolds. Bath, a world heritage site, is a beautiful Georgian city with delightful crescents, terraces and architecture. There will be plenty of time to shop and explore before we enjoy a drive through the Cotswolds. As we head north to Stratford we drive through the heart of the Cotswolds, taking in breathtaking views of open countryside criss-crossed by dry stone walls and bustling market towns with magnificent perpendicular churches.

Stratford-upon-Avon. Birthplace of William Shakespeare, the greatest writer in the English language, and home to the Royal Shakespeare Company. Stratford is a charming market town set in the heart of rural England. A delightful river winds its way through the town, past the beautiful Holy Trinity church, where Shakespeare lies buried.

Shakespeare's School was built in the 15th century and young William was taught in this very room in the 1570's. We have included a private and exclusive tour with a glass of Champagne along with scone, clotted cream and jam. Fun stuff. We will include a school lesson!
