Day 2: London Sightseeing and At Leisure
Ease into London's energetic pace this morning before embarking on an included half-day sightseeing tour with your Travel Director featuring Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey. See the stately Changing of the Guard before your sightseeing tour finishes in central London. Spend the rest of the day enjoying a slice of London culture. This evening, we enjoy a delicious meal at Heddon Street Kitchen in the heart of the West End - one of famous Chef Gordon Ramsay's most-celebrated London eateries.


Day 3: Excursion to Windsor Castle and Stonehenge
Embark on a full-day excursion from London. Visit Windsor Castle, one of the Queen's elegant homes and a working royal residence with a proud history dating back to the 11th century. Visit the superb Georgian State Apartments and St. George's Chapel before free time for lunch in this historic market town. Our next stop is the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe - the ancient circle at Stonehenge. Admire the formidable stones, whose myths and origins have yet to be solved, and visit the world-class exhibition and visitors centre before returning to the humming cityscape that is London.


Day 4: London At Leisure or Full-day Optional Experience
Armed with your 3-day travel pass, London truly is your oyster. Your Travel Director will give you suggestions on how to make the most out of your full day at leisure.
