Suggested itinerary by coach


Arrival in London and a free evening

Arrive in London during the afternoon. Your room will be ready from around 3.00pm, so if arriving earlier, why not do a spot of sightseeing in Central London.

The afternoon and evening are at your leisure, so why not take advantage of some of our suggested activities. Though limited, there are some shows on Sunday including Thriller, The Play that Goes Wrong, Lion King and School of Rock. We can arrange an evening on the Thames – the Showboat dinner cruise runs most Sunday evenings, with dinner, drinks and entertainment or maybe an evening at the Medieval Banquet, held in a vaulted cellar in St Katharine Docks, with medieval style food, drinks and entertainment.


Southwark Cathedral, Bankside and Borough Market

There will be an English breakfast served in the hotel. Then it’s off to the Southbank where you will meet with your local guide. Your first visit will be to Southwark Cathedral. The Cathedral and Collegiate Church of St Saviour and St Mary Overie stands at the oldest crossing point of the tidal River Thames, at what was for centuries the only entrance to the City of London situated across the river.

It is believed that the origins go back to the 7th century when a community of nuns set up an order, to be replaced by a college of priests in the 9th century, the first written reference to the Church is the mention of a “minister” in the Domesday Book of 1086.

St Saviours Church became Southwark Cathedral in 1906, and serves a population of 2.2 million people, served by over 300 parishes. Your guided tour of the Cathedral will include Harvard Chapel and Pugin Tabernacle, The High Alter Screen, the Diamond Jubilee Window, the Shakespeare Memorial and Window, the Herb Garden and the Archaeological Chamber.

Your guide will then continue the tour with a walk along Bankside wandering the Riverside Streets to the sites of the Globe & Rose Theatres (you can take the walk before the Cathedral visit if you wish).

After your tour, there is the option of a visit to Borough Market with its magnificent and varied selections of food stalls, to allow guests to purchase their own lunch maybe or alternatively we can pre-book a lunch at the Barrow Boy & Banker Pub which adjoins the Market (from approx £15 per person).
