Samuel Johnson famously said; “When a man is tired of London he is tired of life; for there is, in London, all that life can afford.” Those sentiments are true today since whether you are seeking history, fine art, world-class shopping or the most diverse of dining experiences, London is the place. Experience London with a private guide and you see more and learn more in a shorter amount of time.

Upon arrival in London, either at one of the airports or the railway stations, you will be met and driven to your hotel which is located in the exclusive area of Mayfair. You have the rest of the day to relax and explore the area around your hotel (a walk in Hyde Park along the banks of the Serpentine is an excellent way to start your stay). Enjoy dinner at your hotel this evening.

 

After breakfast meet your guide in the lobby to begin your first full day in London. Enjoy a personally guided tour of Westminster Abbey, burial place of princes, poets and patriots. See the Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace. Travel the heart of London with landmarks such as Big Ben and the London Eye, taking advantage of views that only a privately guided tour can offer. Hop on a boat at Westminster pier and cruise the Thames to the Tower of London. Explore the towers and the collection of world famous armor. Complete the day with a viewing of the English Crown Jewels. In the evening we suggest that you walk to nearby Shepherd Market where there is a wide variety of dining choices from gastropubs to Middle Eastern fare. There is even a restaurant that offers Polish-Mexican fusion cuisine!

Today is your day to select your kind of London. Johnson was right; “for there is in London all that life can afford”. Depending on your interest, we can suggest the perfect day for you. If you are a foodie, take a tour of Borough Market and Neal’s Yard Dairy before having lunch at Roast, located one floor above the market. If you are into art, visit the two Tate Museums or lesser known museums like the Courtauld Gallery. If you are into fashion, you can try out the trendy boutiques of Knightsbridge and Kensington or spend the whole day at Harrods including lunch. Whatever your selection you will finish the day with a theatre performance at either the Royal Opera House or a West End show of your choosing. Prior to the show enjoy a pre-theatre supper at Wheeler’s of St. James, an icon since 1856 and now under the management of Marco Pierre White.

After breakfast you will leave your hotel headed to the airport or possibly St. Pancras Station to catch the Eurostar to either Paris or Brussels. If you are continuing your stay in the British countryside, your driver will give you a scenic tour as you head to your next destination
