You will also have some free time for shopping, tea or a museum visit before heading back to London.

Discover England on one of our upcoming day trips from London

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds is rural England, village England at its best. We travel by train from London. We’re met by a local coach (chartered for London Walks only). And off we go to discover – to experience, to savour, to enjoy – the Cotswolds countryside and Cotswolds villages. We visit some breathtakingly beautiful villages – each its own perfect little world of thatched roofs and honey-coloured stones and lanes and chuckling streams and flower gardens and country pubs. We see them properly, visit them properly – we walk them, see them up close.  Compliments of Guide Richard’s superb mini-walking tours in each of the villages we visit.

Stonehenge & Salisbury

Depart from London Waterloo accompanied by our guide to go on one of the best day trips you will ever experience. The day tour starts at Stonehenge, the fabulous stone circle standing in the middle of the British countryside. Once you have enjoyed this UNESCO world heritage site, we head to Salisbury. There, your guide will take you through the mediaeval streets lined by half-timbered houses with high over-sailing upper floors and tall gables.

 

Oxford & The Cotswolds

Start the day at Paddington Train Station and head to Oxford where our guide has the perfect one day getaway planned for you. You will discover the city of mediaeval colleges and walls; dreaming spires; kings and punting and Alice in Wonderland. Then escape to the country side and see the Cotswolds rolling hills and English market towns.

 

Cambridge

A bi-monthly day tour available all throughout the summer from May to October, our guide Simon will show you the wonderful city that is Cambridge. You can expect to see the Bridge of Sighs, mediaeval courts, velvet-soft emerald lawns, the unearthly beauty of Kings, Newton’s room and the garden where he experimented. Discover the world where great scientist have lived and worked!

 

Canterbury 

Discover the heart of Kent on our guided one day tour from London. The tour will take you to Canterbury Cathedral and through the city’s medieval cobbled streets.

 

Windsor Castle & Eton

The most royal day trip available, only a stone’s throw away from London Waterloo. This tour will take you inside the walls of Windsor Castle as well as the most famous school in the world – Eton.

 

St Albans

“An England in miniature, an essence of England…” – The most fascinating small city in this Britain is just 20 minutes from London. You will be guided through the most important city of Roman Britain, see the only Roman theatre in Britain, Tudor coaching inns, Elizabethan houses and Georgian England buildings.

Avebury & Lacock

On this day tour, we will take you to Avery, the largest stone circle complex on earth. Even more impressive than Stonehenge! You will discover an ancient time more clairvoyant and star-born than ours. Then we move onto Lacock, where Harry Potter and Pride & Prejudice were filmed. And last but not least you will see the white horses cut into the hills and Silbury, the largest Neolithic monument in Europe.
