Breakfast. Relax as you travel around central London to see the sights See the hustle and bustle that surrounds Nelson’s Column at Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus the busy square in the heart of London. Famous for the fountain that was installed here at the end of the 19th century and for the neon advertising that turned the square into a miniature version of Times Square. Your tour will continue to the Tower of London which is best known for its Crown Jewels. The former prison and fortress, which looks out over the River Thames, was built to terrify potential invaders and Londoners alike. The Tower Bridge is one of the most recognizable bridges in the world.

After breakfast transfer to Westfield Stratford City shopping Centre. With 250 shops plus 70 places to dine, the mall is the largest in Europe and the new lifestyle destination for East London.

Breakfast and proceed for city tour of Westminister. Pass through Parliament Square, seeing the Houses of Parliament and the Big Ben, then travel past Westminster Abbey where Prince William married Kate Middleton in a lavish royal wedding ceremony. Admire prestigious government buildings at Whitehall. Next turning on your left is Downing Street. You've seen the Houses of Parliament and the home of government agencies all around you, this is where the Prime Minister lives and works at number 10, with his chancellor responsible for finance next door in number 11. Enjoy panoramic views across London's skyline from your capsule on the London Eye. As well as being one of the most visually striking structures in the world - the London Eye offers you a new perspective on a great city. London's famous streets, churches, palaces and monuments spread out below in a panoramic scene grown up from Roman times - and, on a clear day - views that stretch 25 miles to Windsor Castle. Enjoy a unique circular sightseeing cruise on the River Thames. Imagine gliding past London's most iconic siteS. The River Thames is often referred to as the artery of London as it runs through the heart of the city and indeed most of London's famous buildings and attractions can be seen from the river.

DAY 6

Breakfast and time at leisure. Shopping in London is the best. This city might be hectic, but incredibly creative, it’s also a place where independent businesses can thrive. However, with street upon street rammed full of great stores, knowing where to begin can be a struggle. From the best department stores to dinky boutiques, beautiful homeware stores and directional fashion shops, there’s something for every shopper – no matter how deep your pockets. So go forth Londoners – shop until your feet bleed and your purse is screaming for mercy. Mamma Mia the musical has been enthralling London theatre-goers for over a decade, yet there has never been a better time to see this incredible tale of laughter, love, and friendship. No matter how old you are, the Mamma Mia stage show will be an unforgettable experience and taking those you love to the performance will be a memory to last a lifetime (optional/transfers not included).
