On a winter’s evening in Paris, you can see the Eiffel Tower lit up against the thin layer of snow on the Champ de Mars. The White Tower of the Tower of London looks like it rises straight out of the layer of gentle snowfall. Your 8-day London and Paris tour in winter opens up the cities in a way you have never before experienced, filled with elegant window displays along antique shopping arcades, and winter markets offering simple pleasures engrained in British and French heritage.
When you arrive in London, you find a mixture of wide-open spaces and chic urban style, antique galleries with millennia of history, and riverside walkways leading to hidden palaces. In the winter, a light dusting of snow carpets the cobblestone streets and creates a majestic wonderland. The trees around Hyde Park look as though they blossom snowflakes. Pubs have roaring fires in charming fireplaces. The Tower of London stands against the backdrop of the River Thames with the White Tower at the center of the grounds. The London Eye offers views of the city from a vantage point alongside the river, across from where Big Ben chimes on the quarter hour over the House of Parliament. The Old Bailey, the Central Criminal Court of England and Wales, crowns the judiciary complex and dates back to the 16th century. A gilded justice adorns the cupola with scales in one hand and a sword in the other.
Your private transfer meets you at the airport escorting you to a luxurious hotel near the heart of the London. The splendor of the city stands before you with a cool breeze of winter rippling the river, showcasing the comforts of new and classic restaurants, and the beauty of a modern, yet antique city.
