“As a Trafalgar friend and supporter, we like to pay what we see in the itinerary and NOT IN THE SMALL/FINE prints with ambiguous and arguable explanations and excuses in consideration of the weather, other factors on the tour, good value for the money, good tour director like Paul, good driver like Swalek, good choice of hotel accommodations especially their facilities, even minor fittings in the room.
Highlights of this trip - Glendalough, National Stud Farm/Japanese Garden, House of Waterford Crystal, Glynwr Vineyard
Special moments - Guinness Storehouse Brewery
The itinerary would improve - better value for the meals on guests paid dinner, better facilities in hotel accommodation, get real visits to the favourites on itinerary not "sights".
Products related to the tour - free wifi on the coach bus is a MUST and should be working with charging device under seats.
Trafalgar should continue to engage the best Tour Director and Coach Driver in the business.”
While it’s often gothic architecture is typical of England, London is multiculturalism in itself. An eclectic mix of ethnicities, cultures, cuisines, art and entertainment, there’s something for everyone in England’s capital. As the city grew, it consumed outlying villages and towns and while these are now considered to be a part of ‘Greater London’, they have retained their own distinct personalities. A city that has existed for more than two thousand years and has survived multiple invasions as well as devastating fires and plagues, it’s impossible to get to know London in just a few days. That just means you’ll have to keep visiting!
Westminster Abbey is possibly the best example of early English gothic architecture. royal coronations, weddings and funerals have taken place here for centuries.
The British Museum is the country’s largest and one of London’s most popular attractions with artefacts from some of the world’s most interesting civilisations.
The new Shakespeare’s Globe is as close to the original as possible, including being subject to the English weather.
Covent Garden is a beautiful lunch spot with a bit of shopping and free performances.
Wander the rooms of the monarch’s official residence at Buckingham Palace.
Hyde Park offers a sanctuary in the chaos of London.
Camden Market is a blend of three separate markets that sell a little bit of everything.
The Sky Garden is a beautiful terrace garden to watch the sunset. Tickets are free but book in advance.
London is huge, so if you’re short on time, try and choose an area you want to explore.
Getting a free Oyster card is a great way to save time and cash on the tube.
Some people don’t realise how close tube stops can be. Sometimes it’s quicker to walk!
Many of the larger museums are free.
If you want to see a West End show last minute, the TKTS booth sells all remaining unsold tickets for the day.
Oxford Street is the place to shop but avoid it on a Saturday.
