Duration
5 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,144

Designed to thrill Anglophiles of all ages, this family London vacation explores the sights, history and magic of this great city. Visit the world of Harry Potter, the original Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum, and take the Original London Sightseeing Tour.


European Stopover & City Map

This 5-day London stopover, where you can choose your level of accomodation, is geared towards families, with plenty of sights to please small and big kids alike.

Take a night to settle into your accommodation near Covent Garden and the West End, then embark on The Original London Sightseeing Tour. Far from a restrictive bus tour, this Hop-on, Hop-off service lets you explore the city at your leisure. Shape your itinerary from 80 stops along the route, with your ticket lasting 24 hours.

Once you’ve taken in the magic of modern London, delve into its imagination – or at least, that of author J K Rowling – at Warner Bros’ London studios. Take a walking tour through the world of Hogwarts and Harry Potter, where you’ll see sets, props, and effects used in the films.

Madame Tussauds is one of the most popular attractions in London, but priority entry will keep your wait to a minimum. Once inside, gawk at the exquisite models that have made this 200-year-old wax museum the world’s favourite. It’s so successful that locations have sprung up in cities around the world, but London’s is still the definitive experience.
