We’re bringing back our hugely popular trip to London, which includes a tour of the Houses of Parliament during the summer recess and a leisurely boat ride along the Thames, with a hop-on, hop-off ticket that’ll take you as far as Greenwich.
You’ll be based at the four-star DoubleTree by Hilton hotel located near the Dartford Crossing, which overlooks the River Thames and the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge.
On Saturday morning, the coach will take you to the Houses of Parliament. The tour starts at Westminster Hall, which is where the audio tour of all the great rooms begins – the highlight being the House of Lords and the House of Commons. Although we get to see these hallowed halls on TV, walking through the historic corridors of power is still very impressive. When our tour is complete, we will gather back in the Westminster Hall before taking the short walk to Westminster Millennium Pier and the cruiser that will transport us down the Thames.
There are several stops on the way where you may want to hop off and explore, before catching a later cruiser and continuing the journey. Why not take a closer look at the London Eye, the Tower of London, The Shard and St Paul’s Cathedral, for example? You’ll also sail by Second World War Cruiser HMS Belfast and under Tower Bridge before you get to Greenwich, home of the refurbished clipper Cutty Sark. The coach will pick you up for the drive back to the hotel where you can relax or enjoy a swim in the pool before dinner.
Car parking at the Hotel, Welcome Drink on Friday, Two nights Half Board Accommodation, Coach Excursion on the Saturday to the Houses of Parliament with an Audio Tour, hop-on hop-off Riverboat cruise from Westminster Bridge to Greenwich with its various attractions and Coach back to the hotel. Staying for an extra night on Sunday gives you the opportunity to visit more nearby attractions with the City of Rochester, Chatham Dockyard and Bluewater Shopping Centre a short drive away
