Duration
4 Days
Prices From:
US$ 670

This short London vacation is a great way to begin a UK tour or to simply fill in a stopover to your next destination. Take a day to explore the city’s most popular attractions and see the major sights, then set out to explore Bath, Stonehenge, and Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare


This 4-day First Class London trip takes in the major landmarks of the city, then takes you out to historic Stonehenge, beautiful Bath, and Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of England’s most famous playwright.

Get settled into your accommodation in Kensington, convenient to all the best sights of Westminster and Hammersmith. Then your first morning is all about London’s pomp and ceremony, seeing Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, The London Eye, Shakespeare’s Globe and the Tower of London. Later in the afternoon, the scene shifts to London’s central waterway, the Thames, as you settle in for a sailing aboard a modern catamaran. Capping off the day, enjoy a quintessential highlight of any trip to England, cream tea at Harrods Tea Rooms.  

The following day, set out for Stonehenge, the enigmatic prehistoric monument that has baffled historians, archaeologists, and occultists for centuries – not to mention intrigued visitors. Learn about the legends that shroud the site in mystery and wonder at the engineering know-how that would have been required to build such a structure. Later, explore the historic city of Bath, where the legacy of the invading Romans lives on in a spectacular network of baths dating back over 2,000 years, before arriving at Stratford-upon-Avon, where you’ll find the birthplace and resting place of William Shakespeare as well as the Royal Shakespeare Company.   

Return to London for your onward journey, or stay a few days to explore on your own.

Day 3

England In One Day Tour

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!
