Itinerary

Day One

Leaving the local area, early this morning we'll travel to Greenwich. We'll arrive at the UNESCO World Heritage Site in the early afternoon, and you'll be free to explore. Stand astride the Mean Time Meridian, visit the world-famous Royal Observatory, newly renovated and reopened Queen's House, or the National Maritime Museum - London's only planetarium - and the last surviving tea clipper, the Cutty Sark.

After time to explore, we'll continue to our hotel.

Day Two

The glittering spike of the Shard towers 306 metres above London's streets, and has become the city's most iconic modern landmark. Today we'll take the high-speed lift to the 69th Level's indoor viewing gallery. Here, Guest Ambassadors will be able to point out major landmarks in the jaw-dropping panorama of the capital and the countryside beyond.

You'll also be able to continue up the spire to Level 72's outdoor viewing gallery just beneath the summit of the tower.

Descending from the heady heights, we'll reboard our coach and head home, arriving back at your pick-up in the mid to late evening.

The coach drop could have better nearer to the Shard, some people had a job walking that far & had to get taxi back to the coach

A quick visit to London calling at Greenwich on Sunday and The Shard on Monday..

We had arranged to meet family members at Greenwich and The Shard so the trip had a bit of a personal stamp on it...The hotel was excellent value and perfectly situated for us to meet up and journey out for a meal in the evening
The Shard was a great visit and we know we would never have organised ourselves to get there!

There could have been a lot of waiting for those travellers who were not familiar with these areas of London but we found lots to do and see...eg Borough Market and the Operating Theater Museum.
Overall the trip was most enjoyable and a brilliant opportunity for us to visit old haunts.

DEREK

Cleethorpes Couple
We enjoyed the break the only downside was the feeder coach from Cleethorpes which joined up with the main coach at Woodhall Services on the M1,the coach was fairly old and very smelly, it also takes about two and a half hours for a journey that would take about one hour if going direct due to the pick up points.
Once on the main coach everything was fine, the driver Jamie was excellent, the guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable even though a last minute replacement.

Hucknall Couple
Royal Grenwich is a delight with lots to do such as the Cutty Sark, maritime museum and the observatory. The view from the Shard is incredible giving unobstructed panorama of the London skyline. When up there visit the toilets.

Scunthorpe Couple
Everything went to plan and to schedule. Greenwich was quite splendid, and the Shard as spectaclar as anticipated. The view really has to be one of the best cityscapes in the world. Good weather helped of course, but it was a memorable experience.
