Details

Christmastime in London is MAGICAL!

*View the ‘Changing of the Guard’ at Buckingham Palace then visit the huge Christmas tree at Trafalgar Square.
*Take a Hop-on, Hop-off bus tour to get an overview of the city and cruise down the Thames past Big Ben to Greenwich.
*Marvel at massive London department stores like Harrods, Selfridges, and Liberty all decked out in their Christmas finery.
*Get groovy at Carnaby Street.
*Stroll (and shop!) the Christmas Markets at Covent Garden, Greenwich Village, and the stalls set up along the Thames.
*Take a special Christmas tour of Charles Dickens’ house and a silent walk through the home of a 17th Century Huguenot family all ready for the holidays.
*Wander through a magical wonderland at Kew Gardens (with over 1 million twinkling lights!).
*Have a guided tour of iconic Westminster Abbey and go to Evensong at St. Paul’s Cathedral.
*We’ll see special Christmas exhibits at the Museum of London, the Victoria & Albert Museum, and Kensington Palace.

**You even get a free day to do your own London thing but I’ll always be available for ideas and provide assistance.

Food is always a special part of the holidays. We will feast on traditional meat pies and mulled wine. We will enjoy a holiday afternoon tea and have a pint at a pub done up like like a giant Christmas tree. We will eat lunch in a church’s crypt and savor dinner at Jamie Oliver’s Italian restaurant. And you will be amazed at the chocolate treats delivered to our private tasting room at Choccywoccydoodah!

Last but not least, we will experience a real Christmas Panto. A Pantomime is a musical comedy stage production full of comedy and audience participation. I really can’t explain it – but it’s a very British holiday tradition and very fun!

THE EARLY BIRD PRICE OF $2799 IS GOOD UNTIL JULY 31ST WHICH SAVES YOU $100 OFF THE REGULAR PRICE OF $2899. Book with a friend and you each save another $75!

This tour includes eight nights’ accommodation (with your own room!), all ground transportation, all group admissions, eight breakfasts and one special dinner. It does NOT include international airfare or alcohol. Travel insurance isn’t included, but highly recommended.

We have no more than 8 people on each tour. We travel like Londoners by Tube, cute black taxi, and red double-decker buses. The pace is leisurely and you have free time to explore on your own. As much as possible, we stay at small hotels and eat at local restaurants to keep the money in the community.

This is a Britain Your Way Tour and listed in multiple locations.
