London, United Kingdom

— 7 nights

The Square Mile

Vibrant and noisy, London is one of the world’s leading cities, an international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics.
Visit Tower of London and Westminster Abbey for their historical value. Step out of the city life by going to The Hawking Centre and Greystones Farm. Explore London's surroundings by going to Cotswold Motoring Museum (in Bourton-on-the-Water), Church of St Peter & St Paul (in Northleach) and Salisbury (Mompesson House & Salisbury Cathedral and Magna Carta). The adventure continues: explore the world behind art at National Gallery, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Paul's Cathedral, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Cotswolds Distillery, and snap pictures at Tower Bridge.
