Additional activities and day-trips

You can sign up for the below trips before you arrive

Trip to London


A visit to England just wouldn't be the same without a visit to the capital City of London.

The visit includes coach travel to and from London, and the option to purchase tickets for the London Eye and river cruise.

London is packed with world-famous attractions such as Trafalgar Square, the Buckingham Palace, museums and theatres.

Visiting one of the many restaurants and pubs (some with beer gardens and rooftops) is a great way to enjoy views and London vibes over a drink or bite to eat.

Trip to Oxford


Home to Britain's oldest University, visit the dreaming spires of Oxford for the day and take a historic walking tour that provides a great introduction to the city.

Oxford offers a wealth of historic attractions, superb museums and archaeological gems as well as meandering waterways, lush green spaces, eclectic foodie scene and brilliant shops.

The visit includes coach travel and the walking tour.

Anyone looking to do some luxury designer shopping can head to Bicester Village too.

Trips to Cotswolds and Bath

The Cotswolds and Bath

A lovely day out to the beautiful Cotswolds and wellbeing destination Bath, the largest city in Somerset known for and named after its Roman-built baths.

The coach trip will start with a stop at Broadway, often referred to as the 'Jewel of the Cotswolds'.

Following a short stop here, the coach will continue to Bath. Bath’s honey-coloured Georgian architecture is straight from a Jane Austen novel and the compact, visitor-friendly centre is overflowing with places to eat and drink, independent shops and remarkable museums and galleries.
