Once you have freshened up and dropped off your luggage, you will head out to start exploring the capital in a classic mini cooper!  Whizz through the streets on this highlights tour, seeing all of the famous icons (and some hidden gems too) as your local guide tells you stories of the streets of London.

Day 2 - Sunday 2nd June - London Explorations - GUIDED

Meet your expert guide this morning at your hotel and head out to explore the lesser known places of London.  From the Royal Courts of Justice to the museums of the South Bank, your guide will tell you stories of London and give you a different viewpoint of the capital city.

This afternoon you will step back in time as you visit the hub of the English defence during the Second World War.  Step behind the glass of Churchill War Rooms with an expert guide, seeing where the man himself sat making the terrible decisions that would end the war.

After learning all about the war you will end the day being in a war of your own!  Zooming down the Thames in your own private boat that was used in the James Bond film Spectre, you will enter a high speed chase passing all of the incredible landmarks used in this film.  A fantastic end to the day.

Overnight: London | Ham Yard Hotel
Room Type: 1 x Deluxe Junior Suite for single occupancy and 1 x One bedroom suite for double occupancy

Day 3 - Monday 3rd June - Depths and Heights of London - GUIDED

It’s time to head into the underbelly  today to the disused stations of the famous London Underground and visit places that are not normally seen by the general public.  Step onto deserted platforms used in films such as James Bond and Sherlock Holmes as you head into the very heart of the underground.  Your expert guide will tell you all the stories as you venture from place to place.

Back on the surface your next stop will be Soho where you will meet a private guide for an immersive foodie tour of the markets – sampling some of the delicious produce and perhaps even a cheeky cocktail or two.

To end your time in London you will take to the skies in a private pod on the London Eye, seeing all of the landmarks from above before heading back to your hotel for one last night.
