Go WightAway to London with our great 2 day itinerary and an overstay at our Central London Hotel in Bloomsbury.
After local pick-ups, we make our way to London, stopping at Windsor for coffee on the way. In the afternoon, we take you for Afternoon Tea at the The Shard in the Oblix Restaurant, with outstanding views from the 32nd floor.
Known as the ‘vertical city’, The Shard gets its name from its impressive structure which stands like sharp shards of glass that appear to pierce the sky. It features office space, multiple restaurants and bars, shops, five-star hotels and luxury apartments.
But that’s not all. The Shard is also home to a popular visitor experience, View from The Shard, which offers the most exhilarating panoramas of the city from the UK’s highest viewing platform, 244 metres above the ground.
Upgrade your London Experience for £20pp and prepare to be astounded as you take the high-speed kaleidoscopic lift to floor 69 to experience unobstructed 360 degree views of one of the world’s great cities which usually only birds and aeroplanes can enjoy with the View from the Shard Experience. The equivalent of the height of 57 double decker buses, this is a must do for all visitors, enabling guests to experience the entire city like never before.
Enjoy a comfy stay at the St Giles Hotel, located in Bloomsbury, just a stones throw from Shaftesbury Avenue & Theatreland, and a great Buffet Breakfast the next morning.
Today is a highlight of your tour as we take you to the Tutankhamun Exhibition: Treasures of a Golden Pharaoh.
Commemorating the centenary of the discovery that captivated the world, the largest collection of King Tutankhamun’s treasures ever to travel out of Egypt will open at the Saatchi Gallery in London for a limited run until May 2020.
Produced by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities and IMG, the TUTANKHAMUN: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh World Tour features original artefacts from Tutankhamun’s tomb, with 60 on their first journey outside Egypt. Visitors can discover the legend of the golden king before the historic treasures return to Cairo to be permanently housed with Tutankhamun’s full collection at the new Grand Egyptian Museum.
After time for lunch in London, we depart for our ferry in the late Afternoon.
