Trip Itinerary

  • Day 1


    Overnight flight to London.

  • Day 2 to Day 7


    Welcome to one of the most exciting cities in the world! As any Londoner will tell you, the city comes into its own during what is traditionally called the off-season − autumn, winter and spring. Fewer tourists will give you more space and time to enjoy the historic sights, galleries and museums that this magnificent capital city has to offer. The best theatre tickets are more readily available plus you’ll have the opportunity to grab some excellent bargains in the January sales. Trafalgar offers very special prices, making a trip to London essential during the off-season. See some of London’s biggest sights during your included half day sightseeing tour with a Local Guide − Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. Your tour ends in central London, leaving you free to explore on your own. Consider visiting the British Museum or discover the City of London’s business district and the Tower of London. Visit Madame Tussauds or browse through the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square. Don’t miss the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. Take a River Thames cruise to Greenwich, home of the Royal Maritime Museum and the Cutty Sark. Shopping is world-class in London. Major department stores line Oxford Street and Regent Street. A host of designer brands adorn Bond Street and the Burlington Arcade. Antiques and curiosities are at Camden Market, Portobello Road and Chelsea’s fashionable Kings Road. Don’t forget to stop off at Harrods and the boutiques of Knightsbridge. Make the most of your stay with a choice of optional excursions available to you. From Windsor Castle to Oxford’s ornate colleges and the place of Shakespeare’s birth, Stratford-upon-Avon, any number of excursions can be arranged for you. Trafalgar’s London Week also includes tickets for the Original London Sightseeing Hop-on Hop-off tour plus the added bonus of three days’ included free travel on the city’s central bus and underground network.
