Be introduced to the development of London's 2,000 year history, as well as contemporary aspects such as museums, galleries, parks or where the best shopping, restaurants and hotels are situated. Your guide will open your eyes to the secrets of the past and today's life in our capital. A one-day tour is long enough to drive by the major sites, witness the Changing of the Guard, a brief visit to either Westminster Abbey or St Paul's and also experience over 900 years of British History at the Tower of London.
Half day visits to both these royal palaces can be undertaken in one day, although it is quite a tight schedule. Windsor Castle, which was created at the same time as The Tower of London is not only our Queen's official home but where heads of state are entertained in the State Apartments. Hampton Court, by the River Thames like Windsor, is however quite a contrast to Windsor - being primarily a Palace based upon pleasure rather than fortification.
Churchillís home, the place to find out about his amazing life. A visit to Chartwell is your chance to get to know one of Britain's greatest leaders, Winston Churchill, on a very intimate level. This was the house that was acquired by WLSC in his wilderness years in the 1920's. It was greatly modified by him to suit his gargantuan grip on life. Not only this but this is a large and very delightful house and grounds to visit, always leaving visitors with a specially warm feeling about their personal pilgrimage to the saviour of the free world.

This was the Palace gifted by Queen Anne, on behalf of the nation, to the first Duke of Marlborough in gratitude for the Duke's victories over the French in the wars of the Spanish succession, culminating finally in the Battle of Blenheim, and hence the name. This is an absolute masterpiece of Baroque architecture, created by Vanburgh, and there is the chance also to discover the State Rooms as well as Churchill's birthplace and the wonderful grounds in which the Palace stills glows in the glory created by the landscape artist Capability Brown.
