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.

Gloucestershire Friends
We had a very nice break, the tour guide was very informative on the places we passed while going through London, and in guiding us safely to the Shard across busy roads. We were very appreciative of the drivers skill in driving through the very congested streets of London. Also, the hotel accommodation was to a high standard, very comfortable. And to add to it all the weather was beautiful. Thank you.

Enjoyed the trip. Didn't realise others were on theatre trip. Would have combined theatre visit and shard visit if had known.

Abergavenny Gwent Couple
An amazing experience going to the top the The Shard!! The courier[Emiyr] was first class - I have been on a trip with him before. The only criticism was that some of the passengers were going to the theatre and this meant the coachdriver had to drive in and out of central London on more than one occasion - this stressed him out. Otherwise, up to the usual high standard of Newmarket Travel!

Grimsby Friends
No tour guide until we reached Greenwich, but the drivers were very helpful.

There was a lack of information regarding the visit to the shard.
The hotel room was 'tired' and there was some confusion over seating in the dining room at dinner, this was sorted out by the manager.

The drop off point for the shard was quite a distance away, this caused some concern for a large percentage of us, walking was difficult due to arthritis, which was mentioned when I booked the trip. One couple had to take a taxi back to the coach. Worrying about getting back to the pick up point on time did spoil the morning.
