London is a varied and exciting capital city, world renowned for its fashion, style and attractions. You will be bewitched by the number of places that you can visit from Soho to Hyde Park and from Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace you will never be short of things to see or do.
You may want a visit to Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress, commonly known as the Tower of London and find time to explore the unique history of the castle on the north bank of the River Thames. There will be plenty of time for leisure, shopping or perhaps have us arrange a theatre show one evening.
Also included in our London tour is a visit to Windsor Castle, the largest inhabited castle in the world and the oldest in continuous occupation; over 900 years. It is one of the Queen’s three official residences and is often said to be her favourite.
We spend time exploring the Castle which includes the State Apartments, St George’s Chapel and Queen Mary’s Dolls House. To complete the visit we will also see the Royal landscape of Saville Gardens; 36 acres of stunning gardens. We will use a number of excellent 2 and 3 star hotels in the Capital, all convenient for sightseeing.
