Welcome to London– One of the world's most visited cities. Our Tour Manager will meet you at the arrival hall after immigration. Please note the tour begins at 1500 hrs from London (LHR) Airport. London has something for everyone: from history and culture to fine food and good times. London is as much about wide-open spaces and leafy escapes as it is high-density, sight-packed exploration. A tireless innovator of art and culture, London is a city of ideas and the imagination. London is immersed in history, with more than its share of mind-blowing antiquity and historic splendour. London’s buildings are eye-catching milestones in the city’s unique and compelling biography, and a great many of them – the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben – are familiar landmarks. Overnight stay in LONDON
After breakfast, embark on a Guided city tour of London, which includes sights such as Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, Regent Street, Oxford Street, Marble Arch, Hyde Park, Regent Park, Trafalgar Square, The Strand, The Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, London Eye, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, St. Paul's Cathedral, White Hall and 10 Downing Street (the Prime Minister's residence). We move on to experience the glittering world of fame at one of London's most popular attractions, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. Here, you will have the chance to see super-realistic wax figures of your favourite stars like (Daniel Craig, Lady Gaga, George Clooney, The Beckhams), the Bollywood gathering (Hrithik Roshan and Salman Khan) and the Royal Appointment (the Queen, Harry, William and Kate) as well as other world famous celebrities. Overnight stay in LONDON
After breakfast, enjoy a ride atop the famous London Eye, situated in the heart of London, from where you can get amazing panoramic views of the city, and such sights as: Westminster Bridge, the Victoria Embankment, the Saatchi Gallery and County Hall. Enjoy free time at leisure at Oxford Street, which is the most famous shopping street in London or to explore the place on your own. Oxford Street is the world's longest high street, offering 1.5 miles of unrivalled shopping, with more than 90 flagship stores from fashion and beauty to tech and homeware. Oxford Street is the ultimate shopping paradise with more than 500 restaurants. You'll have plenty of meal choices at every corner. Overnight stay in LONDON
After breakfast, we proceed to discover a world of luxury at Bicester Village. Home to more than 160 fashion and lifestyle boutiques, each offers savings of up to 60%, all year round. From iconic Prada bags to eye-catching Gucci accessories, update your style for Spring Summer season. Later we proceed for an orientation tour of Stratford upon Avon. Every visit to Stratford would not be complete without finding out more about the English poet and playwright that makes it famous. Shakespeare's Birthplace allows you to visit the house where the world’s most famous playwright was born and grew up to discover more about his early years. However, it is much more than that, a market town with more than 800 years of history containing not only many buildings that survived and would have been familiar to Shakespeare, but also a thriving community offering a wide variety of leisure and shopping experiences. Overnight stay in LONDON
After breakfast, we proceed to Lake District. The Lake District is by far UK's most popular national park. Every year, some 15 million people pitch up to explore the region's fells and countryside, and it's not hard to see why. Ever since the Romantic poets arrived in the 19th century, its postcard panorama of craggy hilltops, mountain tarns and glittering lakes has been stirring the imaginations of visitors. Later, we will also be doing the cruise on Lake Windermere, England's largest lake in the heart of the Lake District, explore the most scenic views of the Lakeland fells. We continue to the famous border town of Gretna Green. Gretna Green is a village in the south of Scotland famous for its traditional runaway weddingS. It was historically the first village in Scotland following the old coaching route from London to Edinburgh. Visit the famous blacksmith shop & shop for all the delights in Scotland. We continue to the city of Glasgow, disarmingly blending sophistication and earthiness, Scotland's biggest city has evolved over the last couple of decades to become one of Britain's most intriguing metropolises. Packed with stylish bars, top-notch restaurants, hedonistic clubs and one of Britain's best live music scenes. The place's sheer vitality is gloriously infectious: the combination of edgy urbanity and the residents' legendary friendliness is captivating. Overnight stay in LANCASHIRE
After breakfast, we proceed to Loch Lomond, Britain's largest expanse of fresh water and ancient water bridge. We’re heading even further north today, driving through the Trossachs National park enjoying breath-taking scenery as we pass Loch Lomond. Onward to Glencoe, also known as the ‘Weeping Glen’ and probably the most famous Glen in Scotland. It’s no wonder Hollywood has used the area for blockbuster films such as Highlander, Brave-heart and Harry Potter to name just a few. Then to Fort William lying in the shadow of the UK’s highest mountain Ben Nevis – Fort William is the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’ and one of the major resorts of the Highlands.
