London’s ‘jewel in the crown’, and a top-10 UK visitor attraction - a place to discover British heritage, royal history, sea and space exploration, classic art and pioneering architecture.

Our full day trip starts at your hotel or vacation residence, as we make the journey to Royal Greenwich Park, an amazing mix of 17th-century landscape which has a rich history – and enjoy the most breathtakingly spectacular view across the River Thames to London’s modern skyline, alongside the statue of General James Woolf.

Listen to your accredited London Guide host from our team of talented Driver Guides relating many thrilling stories, including 2 separate bomb explosions in the park, one which was featured in an Alfred Hitchcock thriller.

We visit the Royal Observatory, home to the world-famous Meridian Line where you can have a souvenir picture with a foot in the west and one foot in the east.

This must-see attraction also houses the Great Equatorial Telescope, the world’s earliest public time signal the Time Ball and be mesmerised by a live panorama of London through the Camera Obsucra.

At Queens House you will enjoy Britain’s first ever classical building, a pioneering masterpiece of 17th-century architecture – a step back in time to the birthplace of King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I.

Here you will enjoy views fit for royalty across the lawns to the riverbank, and fans of the Netflix blockbuster Bridgerton will recognise the elegant colonnades as a movie site location.

At the National Maritime Museum, your Guide will introduce you to some key highlights, including the Great Map where a gigantic space is brought to life with a huge interactive world map, Admiral Lord Nelson’s uniform he was wearing the day he was fatally wounded, and one of your many treasured pictures from Greenwich must include Nelson’s Ship in a Bottle which is one of the most photographed artworks in London.

Lunch awaits in the form of a quintessentially English Traditional Afternoon Tea in a unique setting – underneath the hull of the Cutty Sark, which is the world’s sole-surviving tea clipper, celebrated for her record breaking passages around the globe, built to bring tea to Great Britain.

The awe-inspiring view under the gleaming copper hull shows the cutting-edge design that made her the fastest in the world is complimented by more key highlights here – including a world famous collection of Ship Figureheads, and you will marvel at the towering masts and 11 miles of rigging, and also enjoy more stunning views over the River Thames and London skyline.
