London, England - Tour Begins
Welcome to London, a sophisticated metropolis with a timeless style all its own. Its bustling city streets are lined with beautiful gardens, fascinating museums, celebrated monuments and grand theatres – and you'll be a part of it all!

London
A local expert leads you on a panoramic tour of London. See Trafalgar Square, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London, and Buckingham Palace, the London home to Britain's royalty since 1837. At Westminster, see the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Big Ben. End your city tour with a visit to Harrods, London's most iconic department store. This afternoon, perhaps you will join us on an optional tour to regal Windsor Castle. Originally built to guard the city of London, the imposing castle has been the home of kings and queens for nine centuries. It remains the oldest royal residence still in use today. (B)

London
Start your day like a true Londoner and hop on the famous Underground, known to locals as "the Tube." Opened in 1863, this engineering marvel was the world's first metro system. Next, it's your choice! Perhaps you will join a local guide and explore the quaint Kensington neighborhood, known for its charming shops, cobblestone lanes and famous residents, before a visit to Kensington Palace; once the home of Queen Victoria and Princess Diana, it boasts the beautiful Kensington Gardens. Or, perhaps you would prefer to travel to Westminster station and snap a photo in front of Big Ben before heading north on Whitehall, known as the center of Her Majesty's Government. Catch a glimpse of 10 Downing Street before visiting the Churchill War Rooms. (B)
4
London - Oxford - Blenheim Palace - London
Travel across England's beautiful countryside en route to the historic city of Oxford, home to the prestigious University of Oxford. Join a local expert on a privately guided walking tour which includes a visit to the college where Harry Potter was filmed! Enjoy some free time to explore the city at leisure before setting out to visit Blenheim Palace, one of England's most magnificent homes, for a self-guided tour. Famous for being the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, this UNESCO World Heritage site offers a glimpse into the life of English royalty. (B)
5
London
Spend your final day in London however you like. Perhaps explore Shakespeare's Globe, visit the world-renowned British Museum, or simply relax and enjoy the culture. This evening, step inside the most famous bridge in the world – London's Tower Bridge. With a resident expert, explore the Victorian Engine Rooms and dare to walk across the 137 foot glass floor connecting the bridge's two towers that rise above the River Thames. Tonight, gather for a special farewell dinner and toast the end of a wonderful London getaway! (B/D)
