Let's discover London - Britain`s capital - together! Bacon bap, black pudding, pie & mash, sticky toffee pudding and fry-up?

★ A well-planned and packed itinerary ★ Even though the trip was full of sight-seeing, we also had some great extra activities to choose from that Maria thought of beforehand ★ She is super friendly, attentive, and accessible to her tripmates ★ If you are on one of her UK trips and she offers to make an English breakfast, I recommend it ★ She was really on top of things, with knowledge about current events in the area, to make the trip smooth and better ★ I'm hoping our travel schedules line up once more

Trip Itinerary


Day 1-2
Day 1: Arrival in London - Sunday Welcome to London - the heart of international finance 💰, British history, high-society and of course the heart of international cuisine 🍸. London is connected to the world by six international airports, of which most run a direct bus or metro line to the city center. Upon arrival, please find your way to the hotel. I will share the address with you after booking and be happy to help with directions, if needed. 🛩️ Depending on your time of arrival, you can check in into your allocated room or leave the luggage at the reception. In general, today is free for you to do and explore London on your own. Once everyone has arrived, you will get the opportunity to meet your TripMates for the weekend. I will take you to a historic pub (with interesting history), where we can grab a local ale (or non-alcoholic drink) over dinner and get to know each other. 🍻 INCLUDED: ✅5 nights in a 6-bed-dorm in London (without breakfast) ✅Dinner (traditional British Sunday Roast in a historic pub, if we all meet before 5pm, excl. drinks)

The Shard

Day 2-3
Day 2 / 3/ 4: Excursions to The Shard, Tower of London, London Bridge - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday We begin Monday early in order to beat the crowds. 🥐 After enjoying breakfast in a nearby venue, we hop on a sightseeing tour bus that takes us to central London. For some of you, this will be the first time exploring London and you can get an impression of the sheer size of England's capital, and with that some of the most beautiful attractions along the route. The big opening makes the notorious fortress Tower of London 🏰. We can spend some time exploring the grounds, see parts of the former royal residency and visit the famous “Beefeaters”, the guards at the Tower of London 💂. On our way to The Shard, we will cross the Tower Bridge. Here, we have entry into the bridge and will walk on the glass walkway, which was installed in 2014 and opens a fantastic view onto the Thames and people below 🌉. The Shard is one of the newer tourist hot spots of London. Here, I will make a reservation for our group in advance in order to secure a time slot. We will have the opportunity of getting up real high! But don't lose your head in the skies. Standing at over 309 meters tall, the open air rooftop terrace, which is situated on the 72nd floor, can be overwhelming! We can use our London Day Pass for a variety of other attractions, for instance the Kensington Palace or the Westminster Abbey, or go into one of the various museums. INCLUDED: ✅Entrance tickets to all mentioned attractions (Shard, Tower Bridge, Tower of London and more) ✅Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour ✅ Uber Boat on the Thamse River


Day 3-4
Day 3: Discover more of London`s best cuisine - Tuesday We begin our day with a walk to a cool breakfast restaurant, where we start with a full English breakfast (vegan and veg options available). Fuel up with a delicious fry-up! London is so big and diverse in terms of boroughs and people that there will be still so much to see. After breakfast we embark on a food walk to the oldest market of London. We can also grab snarks here and you will have the opportunity to try some very British and internationally inspired dishes and learn about the history of England`s cuisine: the buns and pies. After that we have a full day to see more of London`s attractions such as Greenwich, that gives the Greenwich Mean Time its name, The British Museum and more interesting modern and historical sites. In the afternoon we`ll enjoy a very special tradition of Britons: The Afternoon Tea. It will be served in one of the coolest Michelin starred venues of the city! I have no doubts: The grand finale of our tour will be spectacular! INCLUDED: ✅Full english breakfast ✅Afternoon tea in a Michellin starred restaurant ✅Explore more local sights and food markets


Day 4
Day 4: Departure from London - Wednesday Now that we have spent six great days together, today is time to say goodbye to your newly found travel friends. Feel free to ask me more on where to go and spend the rest of your day, if you have an evening departure. There are just too many cool things and places to discover in London! Secure your spot soon and hope to welcome you in the UK in August😊!
