The Family Vacation in London
Exciting London is great for families!
Travelling with children is exciting, difficult, tiring and wonderful! We know the biggest challenge on a family trip is keeping the kids entertained. Luckily enough, Our Family Vacation in London offers plenty of activities to suit travellers of all ages and it’s rewarding to see your children getting as much joy out of a city as you do. A day tour can include Harry Potter sights, fortified castles, park picnics, river cruises and much more!
Welcome to England
Arrive at Heathrow Airport where your chauffeur will meet you and take you to Windsor for a leg stretch after an overnight flight. Collect a free family multimedia tour and listen to the timeless tutor Horace and his pupil Tommy. They will introduce you to the many magical characters that live at the Castle. Look out for Queen Mary’s dolls’ house and Henry VIII’s armour! Arrive at London and check-in to your centrally located hotel. The rest of the day is free to rest and relax.
Your driver-guide will pick you up from the hotel and take you on a panoramic tour of London stopping at the railway stations of Paddington Bear and Harry Potter! After lunch, you will visit Tower of London with 900 years of royal history and see the collection of Crown Jewels which includes the largest diamond in the world. Then take a river Thames cruise down to London pier and finish your day with a trip on the London Eye, the tallest observation wheel in Europe.
Warner Bros Studios
After breakfast, you will travel to the North of London to see the Making of Harry Potter at Warner Bros. Studios. You will have the chance to go behind-the-scenes and see many things the camera never showed. Discover the actual Great Hall, and explore Dumbledore’s office; walk the famous cobbles of Diagon Alley, knock on the door of 4 Privet Drive, climb on the Knight Bus, sit in the flying car, and even try a butterbeer! Afternoon is at leisure.
