Vibrant and noisy, London is one of the world’s leading cities, an international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics.
Attractions like Buckingham Palace and St. Paul's Cathedral make great kid-friendly stops. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Highclere Castle and Bateman's. Get out of town with these interesting London side-trips: St. George's Chapel (in Windsor), Chartwell (in Westerham) and Bodiam Castle (in Bodiam). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Westminster Abbey, make a trip to Winchester City Mill, gain insight at Magdalen College, and examine the collection at Jane Austen's House Museum.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a London trip simple and quick.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to London. In August, daily temperatures in London can reach °C, while at night they dip to °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Thu) early enough to catch the train to Conwy.
