London Tour

London is the most amazing and cosmopolitan city in the world. We have a rich and diverse history spanning two thousand years since the Romans established a small settlement called Londinium.

London is an important global city and we can boast world-leading talents in sports, the arts, entertainment, media and fashion. We have hosted the Olympics three times, the World Cup and countless sporting and cultural events. It is a wonderfully diverse city with thousands of people speaking hundreds of languages from all over the world living here and visiting the sights every year.

After camp, you have the chance to spend four unforgettable days touring London and you will see the very best the city has to offer, including:

Trafalgar Square – Newly pedestrianised and named to commemorate the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, you will see the 52m tall Nelson's Column, Landseer's Lions and the 'fourth plinth' with changing pieces of contemporary art.

Thorpe Park – One of Europe's best theme parks with some of the fastest and most awesomely-exciting rides you've ever been on!

Leicester Square – The heart of London's Theatreland, keep a look out on the pavement for distances to countries once belonging to the British Empire as well as the plaques bearing the names of film stars and their hand prints.

West End Shows – Depending on availability and tickets, we will see a fantastic West End show at one of the city's famous theatres. In past years we've been to see 'We Will Rock You' and 'Oliver!'.

London Underground – The Tube was opened in 1863 and is a giant network of underground tunnels with a fascinating and often scary history.

Horse Guards Parade – A large parade ground near Whitehall and the site of the annual Trooping the Colour to commemorate HRH The Queen's birthday.

South Bank/London Eye – The South Bank is full of theatres, art installations and some very cool cafes and restaurants and the London Eye is the world's largest cantilevered observation wheel at an incredible 135m tall!    

Trocadero – A massive indoor games arcade right next to Leicester Square.

The Tower of London – A thousand-year old castle and one of the most famous tourist attractions in the world. See the Crown Jewels, Traitor's Gate, the Beefeaters and tons more!

Oxford Street – Europe's busiest shopping street stretches from Marble Arch and goes all the way down to Tottenham Court Road.

Big Ben – Big Ben is actually the nickname of the bell in the clock tower, called the Elizabeth Tower since 2012 to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee. It weighs a staggering 13½ tons!

Tate Modern – The most-visited modern art gallery in the world was formerly a power station and it holds the national collection of British, International modern and contemporary art from 1500.

Regent Street – Adjoining Oxford Street at Oxford Circus, Regent Street is famous for its Christmas lights as well as shops like Hamleys!

Buckingham Palace – The Queen's residence and one of the most instantly recognisable buildings in the world.

Hyde Park – One of the Royal parks (along with Green Park, Richmond Park, Regent's Park, St. James's Park and Kensington Gardens) and famous for Speakers' Corner, the Peter Pan's statue and the Serpentine.

Houses of Parliament – Otherwise known as The Palace of Westminster, it is the seat of the British government and is a stunning building sitting on the bank of the River Thames.

Science Museum – A fantastic (and free) experience for people of all ages with so much to do and see, one day is barely enough!

London Boat Tour – Cruising down the Thames is an incredible experience where you will see some of London's most famous landmarks from a totally different point of view.

Natural History Museum – A 'must-see' for everyone with over 80 million life and earth science specimens, including massive dinosaur skeletons and species of animals collected by Charles Darwin on his famous voyages.

Camden Town – Camden Town is associated with an alternative 'counterculture' and while there is a cool 'punky' vibe, it is one of the most popular and exciting tourist spots in the capital with its world-famous markets, eateries, bars, theatres and art spaces all fizzing with energy.
