Your Coach Tour of Britain
Your escorted tour of Britain may take you to one or more of the four separate countries in the United Kingdom; England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Each country has its own unique cultures and traditions, as well as having very distinctive dialects and accents.
London is the capital city of England and the United Kingdom and combines rich history with a world of contemporary design. This city is so vast you would need a few days to get the most out of it. The best way is with a hop-on hop-off double decker bus tour. See the Tower of London and Big Ben, the iconic bell of the famous clock which sits at the Palace of Westminster. Visit the boutiques that line the streets of Knightsbridge, browse the iconic Harrods store, or explore Portobello Road and Camden Market and pick up a bargain.
Later, take in a show at London’s West End and revel in the bustling crowds jostling for a place in between all the restaurants, theatres, cinemas and nightclubs. Lastly, take an evening walk to Leicester Square with its vibrant atmosphere of revellers and street entertainers who light up the night sky.

From the Vikings and Romans to the War of the Roses, this extraordinary place has it all. Evidence of medieval times is all around to see; especially The Shambles, a narrow medieval street overlooked by beautifully preserved shop buildings.
