Detailed Description

The treasures of England go beyond the glistening Crown Jewels inside the Tower of London. A gilded statue of Justice adorns the cupola of the Old Bailey. The River Thames ripples underneath the sunlight with golden allure. The lush country hills outside of London shine emerald across the horizon.

From marketplaces to warm Roman baths, each offers a unique view of the splendors of London, the majesty of secluded villages, and the wonder of British history.

Your England tour begins with you arrival in London, a city meandering along the banks of the River Thames. Your private transfer meets you at the airport and escorts you to a fabulous hotel situated in the heart of London’s energetic, historic center. London remains one of the most visited cities in the world, filled with captivating history dating back to Roman times. Your guide meets you after breakfast and leads you on a remarkable tour to take in the iconic images near the riverbanks, from the House of Parliament to St. Paul’s Cathedral.

In the evening, you can relax on a river cruise, taking in the lights of the iconic city. The following day, your guide takes you on a tremendous half-day tour of Buckingham Palace, including the lavish State Rooms, with the afternoon in the city at your leisure.

In Cambridge, you can walk in the footsteps of Charles Darwin and Stephen Hawking. Relish a day in London at your whim and pleasure, taking in the museums, the historic streets, or the lively marketplaces.
