Highlights of London Getaway

Duration
4 Days
Prices From:
US$ 870

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.

The Magic of London Tour with Cream Tea at Harrods

The morning part of the tour begins with a visit to St Paul's Cathedral where we enter as their doors open. We will explore the masterpiece designed by Wren in 1673 with a professional guide, taking time to listen to the 1695 organ that Mendelssohn once played and visit the tombs of Nelson and Wellington.

On Sundays when there is restricted viewing at the Cathedral there will be an opportunity to enter and enjoy one of the services.

Afternoon: The Tower of London
Arriving at the Tower of London built in 1066 by William the Conqueror, our guide will regale you with fascinating insights into the history of this Royal Palace and fortress. Ample time will be given to view the Crown Jewels and the White Tower and to wander around this imposing fortress.

Exclusive River Cruise on Thames
Take your seat for a 40 minute River Thames cruise enjoying spectacular views as you glide down the Thames. The river offers the best perspective of a number of top attractions and sights; view The Houses of Parliament, The London Eye, Shakespeare's Globe, St Paul's, The Shard and The Tower of London and Tower Bridge from the comfort of your seat.

This boat is a modern catamaran offering climate-controlled indoor cabins with comfortable seating, outdoor back decks, toilets and on-board bars.

Afternoon cream tea at Harrods:
The Georgian's quintessentially English cream tea stands amongst London's finest, and when enjoyed in such regal surroundings, is an experience to be savoured, remembered and repeated. Home-baked English scones served with clotted cream and Harrods exclusive preserves and this is accompanied by a glass of Prosecco and your choice of tea from Harrods own tea gardens. Relax and enjoy!
