Day by Day
Welcome to London, one of the world's most important business, financial, and cultural centres. Your Local Hosts will help you maximise your time.
Morning guided sightseeing includes all of London's famous landmarks. Drive past the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben; Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married; Whitehall's mounted horseguards; the Prime Minister's Downing Street; and Piccadilly Circus. Take photographs of the London Eye, the giant Ferris wheel situated on the riverbank, and the Shard, the tallest building in Western Europe. Visit ST. PAUL'S CATHEDRAL. Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece with its world-famous dome is an iconic feature of London's skyline, and the awe-inspiring interior holds fascinating stories about its history. The final highlight is the ceremonial pageantry of the Changing of the Guard (if held). (B)
Full day at leisure for you to enjoy the very best of London. Your Local Hosts can offer recommendations, such as a river cruise to enjoy unique views across London from the Thames-Big Ben, the Tower of London and Tower Bridge, Tate Modern, the Shard, HMS Belfast, and much more. (B)
Travel to Edinburgh by EXPRESS TRAIN (First class). (B)
Morning guided sightseeing introduces you to the 200-year-old elegant "New Town" with its original neo-classical and Georgian period architecture. In the "Old Town," follow the Royal Mile and visit EDINBURGH CASTLE, perched on top of a rocky crag, the remnants of an extinct volcano. Tour the castle and admire the "Honours of Scotland," the oldest set of crown jewels in the British Isles and first used for the coronation of Mary Queen of Scots in 1543. (B)
NOTE: Edinburgh sightseeing might take place on Day 4.
Your Local Host will have exciting suggestions for your day at leisure, like a visit to Holyrood Palace, the official residence of the British Monarch in Scotland. Located at the bottom of the Royal Mile, the palace has served as the principal residence of the Kings and Queens of Scots since the 16th century, and is a setting for state occasions and official entertaining.

Your holiday ends with breakfast this morning. (B)
