Vibrant and noisy, London is one of the world’s leading cities, an international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics.
Get in touch with nature at East Sussex Falconry and Arlington Reservoir and Nature Reserve. South Bank and Folkestone Harbour Arm are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from London: St. Mary's Church (in Banbury), Cotswolds Distillery (in Stourton) and Bodleian Library (in Oxford). And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Ightham Mote, take in the waterfront at Butler's Wharf chop House, explore the world behind art at Towner Art Gallery, and take in nature's colorful creations at Westgate Gardens.

A beautiful and romantic city fit for any itinerary, Paris brims with historic associations and remains vastly influential in the realms of culture, art, fashion, food and design.

Explore Paris' surroundings by going to Champagne Roger-Constant Lemaire (in Villers-sous-Chatillon), Eglise Saint-Lambert (in Saint-Lambert) and Musee d'Art et d'Histoire Louis Senlecq (in L'Isle-Adam). There's much more to do: indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area, step into the grandiose world of Chateau de Fere-en-Tardenois, contemplate the long history of The Trianons & The Hamlet, and brush up on your military savvy at The Army Museum.
