London

— 10 nights

The Square Mile

Vibrant and noisy, London is one of the world’s leading cities, an international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like St. Paul's Cathedral and Wallace Collection. Museum-lovers will get to explore The British Museum and National Gallery. Change things up with these side-trips from London: IWM Duxford (in Duxford), Oxford (University Church of St Mary the Virgin, Oxford University Museum of Natural History, &more) and Weybridge (Brooklands Museum & Mercedes-Benz World at Brooklands). There's much more to do: learn about all things military at HMS Belfast, admire the natural beauty at Sissinghurst Castle Garden, stroll the grounds of Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial, and steep yourself in history at Buckingham Palace.
