US$ 1,190

Part London city break, part South England tour, this is the perfect trip for a second-time visitor, or anyone wanting just a taste of London before exploring the best of the surrounding area.


European Stopover & City Map

This 6-day trip takes in the best of southern England before returning each night to the timeless city of London.

Stay in the historic neighbourhood of Clerkenwell, with Covent Garden, the West End, the London Museum, and Saint Paul's Cathedral all close to your boutique hotel. You're also within easy reach of the famous 'Tube' to explore further afield. On your first full day, embark on the Original London Sightseeing Tour, a Hop-on, Hop-off bus tour that lets you build an itinerary around your interests. Use it to hop between specific sights, or stay on board, enjoying the in-depth commentary as the bus makes its way through this peerless world city.

Spend a day touring the great university towns of England, Oxford and Cambridge. Walk in the footsteps of Bill Clinton, Lewis Carroll, C.S. Lewis, Tolkien, Darwin, Newton, and countless contemporary British artists and innovators. Harry Potter fans will recognise the Bodleian Library at Oxford. Then enjoy a guided tour of the chapel of Kings College in Cambridge.

Pay your respects to royalty at Windsor Castle, an official Royal residence for 900 years, then trek out to Stonehenge and Bath. Despite its familiarity, much about Stonehenge remains a mystery. Bath, meanwhile, is one of England’s most picturesque cities, boasting magnificent architecture over 2,000 year old Roman ruins. Explore the Roman Baths in detail and learn about their water’s supposed healing properties.

Pass through lovely Greenwich on your way to Leeds Castle, crossing the Greenwich Meridian on the way. Leeds Castle is commonly said to be one of the world’s most beautiful, set amid 500 acres of parks and gardens. You’ll have plenty of time to explore before making your way to Canterbury Cathedral, centre of the Anglican faith. Visit the villages of Kent, then gaze over the white cliffs of Dover, where Dover Castle still stands guard after 800 years.

Each evening, return to London to enjoy all the entertainment district has to offer. Enjoy an English pub dinner, embark on a ghost tour through the world’s most haunted city, or sate your cultural appetites in the West End’s theatre land. The National Theatre and Shakespeare’s Globe are also located just a short Tube or cab ride away.

Duration3 Hours
Day 3

Leeds Castle, Canterbury and Dover

Heading out to Leeds Castle, you pass through Greenwich, home of the famous 'Cutty Sark' tea clipper and the Royal Observatory, and cross over the Greenwich Meridian. Leeds Castle was described by Lord Conway as 'the loveliest castle in the world' and is set in the middle of a natural lake, surrounded by 500 acres of parkland and gardens. Experience its magic in an atmosphere of still tranquillity. There will also be time to explore the castle grounds where you will find the 'Lady Baillie Garden' with views over the lake, an aviary and maze. Traveling through Kent, the county known as the 'Garden of England', make your way to Canterbury to visit the Cathedral. This magnificent Cathedral is the most important church within the worldwide Anglican faith. The central 'Bell Harry Tower' dates back to 1498, and the crypt to the 11th Century. It is here where your guide will tell the story of the shocking murder of Archbishop Thomas Beckett in 1170 and there will also be time to explore the narrow streets of Canterbury. Continue your tour through the picturesque landscape of Kent dotted with unusual buildings and quaint little villages to Dover, where you'll see the famous White Cliffs standing 400 feet above sea level. Brooding above the White Cliffs is the sprawling Dover Castle still watching over the town 800 years on.

Duration10 Hours
Day 4

Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Bath

Your day begins with a visit to one of the National Treasures. Built high above the River Thames, Windsor Castle has been home to the Royal Family for 900 years and is still an Official Residence of the Queen. Here you will visit the magnificent State Apartments, still used for State occasions and Royal receptions. Your next stop is clouded in mystery. The ancient stone circle of Stonehenge is an amazing feat of engineering and the most important prehistoric site in England, but beyond its archaeological significance and possible astronomical role, Stonehenge is also a place of spiritual importance. Early legends link it with Merlin and King Arthur, but over the last hundred years the midsummer sunrise has attracted pagan groups and followers of the Ancient Order of Druids. You will also visit the beautiful Georgian City of Bath and take you on a panoramic tour of some of the finest architectural sights in Europe, including Bath Abbey, the Royal Crescent, the Circus, Assembly Rooms and the famous Pulteney Bridge. Explore the Roman Baths, built around thermal springs, which have been supplying water for over 2,000 years. In Roman times a great Temple was built next to the sacred spring - the waters were believed to have healing properties and attracted visitors from across the Roman Empire.

Duration11 Hours
Day 5

Warwick Castle, Oxford, The Cotswolds and Stratford

Today you will be taken back through Warwick Castle's 1,000 year history to a time of bloody battles, extravagant banquets and royal ceremony. Visit the magnificent interiors of the Great Hall & State Rooms, climb the Towers and Ramparts for an archer's view of the historic town of Warwick, and enter the multi-sensory Kingmaker attraction and journey back to 1471 as Richard Neville prepares his army for battle. Alternatively, you might like to stroll through some of the 60 acres of Warwick Castle's landscaped gardens. The next stop is Stratford upon Avon - the birthplace of William Shakespeare. We will visit his Birthplace, and will gain a fascinating insight into his life. Your stop here is followed by the most scenic areas of England, the Cotswolds. Passing through charming villages with thatched cottages, tea shops and ancient inns. Next is Oxford, where the colleges date back to the 13th century and among its famous students were Bill Clinton, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and Lewis Carroll. We take you on a fascinating walking tour to see Christ Church where many scenes from Harry Potter were filmed. We'll also see the Bodleian Library and the picture perfect college courtyards for which Oxford is famous.
