    Fly into London Heathrow or London Gatwick Airport. Here you will be met and transferred to The May Fair Hotel or similar.

Should you not be able to locate your driver within a few minutes, as he may be assisting other guests, please contact the local agent via the phone number listed in your final cruise documents.

    The remainder of the day and meals are on your own, after which you will overnight at the hotel.

    DÍA 2

    London - a city that inspires and amazes. A capital that basks in its rich history, where around every corner there is something new and yet very familiar to see. It may be a first visit to Trafalgar Square or Westminster Abbey but these iconic places will seem like old friends, from novels and films, from Peter Pan to Oliver Twist, from the paintings of Monet and the poetry of Wordsworth. Enjoy a tour of this majestic city, fully guided throughout by a professional London tour guide.

    Follow the Thames to Parliament and Big Ben, down Whitehall and past Nelson's Column and the National Gallery. Peer along Downing Street to Number 10, the home of the Prime Minister. Head up by Hyde Park and St James's Palace and take a stroll past Clarence House to the Queen's official London residence Buckingham Palace.

    Here every day May to July and on alternate days August to April you can see the pomp and ceremony of the changing of the Royal guards. Bright red tunics, highly polished boots, bearskin helmets (look out for the plume to see which regiment is walking past), and on occasions the sound of a brass band. See the mounted horse guards ride down The Mall and absorb this wonderful pageantry outside Buckingham Palace.

    Later on, try a dish of traditional Fish and Chips in a typical London pub, before setting sail from Westminster Pier to cruise The River Thames, the perfect vantage point for taking in some of London’s most iconic sites.

    After a brief, but memorable, journey, you’ll arrive at Tower Pier and enter the one thousand year old fortress which is ‘The Tower of London’. Here learn of torture and execution, of life in a former Royal palace, of prisoners and soldiers, and have a chance to admire and marvel at the Crown Jewels. After visiting The Tower, your tour continues by coach where you’ll have the opportunity to pass St Paul’s Cathedral on your way back to the hotel.

    Aviso: Parts of the itinerary may be reversed depending on local traffic conditions and times available at the Tower of London.

    Upon returning to your hotel, the evening is at spent at your leisure, dinner is on your own.

    DÍA 3

    After breakfast at your hotel, begin the day with a journey to England's West Country, to the elegant city of Bath, famed for its therapeutic hot springs, a long and varied Roman history plus the beautiful terraces, crescents and circuses of the 18th Century that adorn the residential area of the city.

    After a photo stop at the historic Royal Crescent, one of the greatest examples of Georgian architecture in the United Kingdom, you’ll be dropped at the coach parking area for a short, guided walk through this magnificent city to The Roman Baths.

    Bath's foundations go back to Celtic times when the springs were first discovered and the healing properties realized. Enjoying the warm waters, the Roman invaders soon arrived in the first century and called this place Aquae Sulis turning it into one of the most important religious centers and military settlements in the northern part of the empire. Through the Saxon era and the Mediaeval period up to the city's new foundation as a resort for Georgian aristocrats who would travel from London to "see and be seen" in a way much parodied by Bath resident Jane Austen in "Persuasion" and "Northanger Abbey". Making the three day journey from the capital, the wealthy elite would take the waters to cure themselves of rheumatic diseases, stiffness of the joints and gout.

    You will have a chance to walk along the original Roman pavement and see the hot baths and remains of the temple of Sulis Minerva.

    AVISO: The tour of the Roman Baths is at your leisure and an audio guide & access to a public tour is included with entry. Before meeting your guide at 12:30 you’re welcome to spend free time perusing some of the many quaint buildings & shops in the surrounding area

    An essential part of England's old world charm is the delightful countryside and picture postcard villages that surround London. After lunch at a local restaurant, travel to a particular region that displays these characteristics with both grace and a sense of rustic beauty, an area known as the Cotswolds.

    Time seems to have been given very little chance to march forward around these parts. Cottages of 17th Century weavers stand next to chuckling streams, gentle rolling green hills and hidden valleys that stretch across these limestone uplands and with an expert guide on board your coach you will set about exploring this area and meander through this wonderful landscape.

    Visit delightful Bibury, described by William Morris as the prettiest village in England and historic Burford where limestone cottages cascade down to the River Windrush below. These bucolic and pastoral landscape have been constantly enjoyed by visitors from all over the world, and are quite simply some of England's most spectacular and well-loved rural areas. ]
