Villains and Heroes.
Enjoy breakfast at the hotel then drive into central London and meet your guide en-route to 221B Baker Street, possibly the most famous address in the world. Within a short walk you can see the bronze statue of Sherlock Holmes outside Baker Street Station. You will be taken on a short walking tour which will include Sherlock Mews and 109 Baker Street which is one of the last remaining 3-storey red-brick flats dating back to the 1900s, giving you a glimpse into life on Baker Street as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle intended it. Then finish in the Sherlock Holmes Pub for Lunch.
After Lunch, your guide will take you through the streets of Whitechapel to learn the gruesome tale of Jack the Ripper. The discovery of a body on 31 August 1888 in London’s East End set in motion one of the most famous manhunts in criminal history. For over 120 years, ripperologists and amateur sleuths have been trying (and failing) to discover the identity of the man known as Jack the Ripper.
Make your way back to the hotel to freshen up for the evening. There’s plenty to do in London, Perhaps you could go to the theatre or dine at the Medieval Banquet! Contact us for more details about evening entertainment.
After breakfast, you have the day at your leisure before it’s time to set off on your journey home. If you feel like fitting a bit more in, we can arrange a morning trip to the London must-see of your choice.
