Accessible London Sightseeing


London Heathrow Airport, Arrival Services
Arrive at Heathrow Airport, clear British Immigration and Customs and meet our driver. We drive a short distance to Windsor overlooking the Thames River. The morning is free for shopping and breakfast in the fresh morning air and sunlight. Independently through the castle, or wader about the town for shipping, some fresh morning air, or a pleasant breakfast. Time permitting you can also visit to the beautiful Seville Garden. Following your invigorating morning at Winsdor, transfer to your centrally located London hotel.

London Orientation Tour
After breakfast at your hotel meet our driver in the hotel lobby at a mutually agreed upon time. Today is your first opportunity for visits in cosmopolitan London. Tour such famous landmarks as Westminster Abbey, Kensington Palace, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London, London Bridge and Tower Bridge and Covent Garden. Once London's fruit and vegetable market, Covent Garden has been fully restored and is one of the very few places in London where pedestrians rule. Here you can watch the buskers for a few coins and the tourists for free. Rested from your visit at Covent Garden you may want to continue the afternoon with a visit to London's famous shopping areas of Oxford Street, Regent Street, Chelsea's King's Road, Knightsbridge, Whiteleys' in Baywater and Kensington High Street. If shopping seems too tiring, an optional visit to the London Transportation Museum is possible. After a full eight hour touring day return to our hotel.

Stratford, Warwick and Blenheim Palace
After breakfast at your hotel meet your driver in the hotel lobby at a mutually agreed upon time. Heading out of London towards Oxford, Blenheim Palace is a little further north of Oxford and is directly on the way to Stratford. If you recall, Blenheim Palace is the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. In addition to the sights en-route, the second half of today's excursion is to the birthplace of Great Britain most famous playwright...William Shakespeare. #Subject to timing and energy, it should be possible to visit Blenheim and still be in Stratford for lunch. The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust has five buildings connected with William Shakespeare. The town of Stratford is easily explored and contains many half-timbered buildings associated with Shakespeare's life. To enhance your knowledge of literature, the English language and the words of Shakespeare, a licensed BTA (British Tourist Authority) guide will join your group for three hours in Stratford.#Following a day in search of "Winston" and "William" return to our London based hotel after eight full hours of touring.

Dover, Canterbury, & Leeds Castle
After breakfast at your hotel meet your driver in the hotel lobby at a mutually agreed upon time. Not to be missed during a visit to Great Britain is a trip to one of the worlds most beautiful castles just east of Maidenstone in South eastern England. #Like something from a fairytale, the 9th century Leeds Castle, transformed from a fortress to a palace by Henry VIII, stands on two small islands in a lake surrounded by rolling wooded hills. Along the coast, the next stop in your castle touring adventure is the well preserved fortress of Dover Castle with its spectacular views across the English Channel. On a clear day it is even possible to see France. To add more fascination to this sight, within the fortification are the remains of a Roman lighthouse, or Pharos which is possibly the oldest standing building in England. Last but not least is an anticipated visit to Canterbury. Canterbury's greatest treasure is its magnificent cathedral, the successor to the church St. Augustine. Like many great cathedrals, Canterbury's cathedral evolved in many stages over may years and reflects a number of architectural styles. The result is one of the world's greatest buildings. The center of Canterbury is enclosed by a medieval city wall and a modern ring road. It's easy to get around the center but virtually impossible to get around by car visit. Following a full ten hours of castle visiting return to our London based hotel.

Stonehenge and Bath
After breakfast at your hotel meet your driver in the hotel lobby at a mutually agreed upon time for a full ten hours to touring today at Stonehenge and Bath. #Built in stages beginning 5000 years ago, the enormous ring of stones comprising Stonehenge is the most famous prehistoric site in Europe. However, Stonehenge is not an isolated, unique site standing alone in the rolling downs. It is surrounded by a varied collection of unexplained, mysterious sites. Woodhenge, just three miles from Stonehenge is a site of circular, concentric ,wooden posts which predates Stonehenge. Just north of Woodhenge are the Durrington Walls, a massive circle over 1500 feet across, five times larger in diameter than the outer ditch that surrounds Stonehenge. This and more are yours to see, ponder, and explore. After a mystical morning it's off to the jewel of Britain's touristic crown. For more than 2000 years Bath's fortune has revolved around the hot springs that have drawn tourists from Roman times to the present. Today, Bath is equally famous for its glorious Georgian architecture, which has won it World Heritage Site status from UNESCO. Like Florence in Italy, Bath is an architectural delight which can almost seem like an exotic mall filled with honey-colored stones, a shop-lined bridge and stroller filled streets. Following your glorious tour return to our London based hotel after ten full hours of touring.

The Cotswolds
After breakfast at your hotel meet your driver in the hotel lobby at a mutually agreed upon time. The days' activities are outside London in the Cotswolds
The Cotswolds is the region northwest of London about four hours which is characterized by charming villages of soft, mellow stone which are built in folds between the rolling hills. They owe their being to the medieval wool industry, but most of these picture-book towns now make their living out of tourism. Following a full 10 hours of touring, return to our London based hotel.
