Overview

5 days / 4nights From only £179pp

Visiting London is the best way to get an insight of British culture and History. Major sights like the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace are on most visitors' itineraries, but no matter what your interests are, you will find something here. Art lovers should make a beeline for the National Gallery and the Tate Modern. If History is your thing, don't miss the Cabinet War Rooms or the Imperial War Museum. Finally, forget everything you've heard about British food—the cafés and restaurants here are fabulous!

Please note that the pricing doesn't include paid visits.

The whole trip was excellent as always both the trains and the hotel were excellent. I have used StudyTrips for many years and their service has always been excellent
