London and Beyond
Join us from March 18-26, 2019 for a visit to London and beyond. Big Ben, London Bridge, Windsor Castle . . . even from a distance, these landmarks can seem as familiar to us as the St. Louis Arch or Oldenburg’s Shuttlecocks in Kansas City. But have you experienced them firsthand? Join us for a weeklong exploration of much that London and environs have to offer the questing traveler. From our four-star hotel in the fashionable Hyde Park neighborhood of London, we’ll set out on guided tours of these and other world-renowned destinations: Westminster Abbey, within whose medieval walls is found a treasure house of paintings, stained glass, and diverse architectural styles; the Houses of Parliament, the site where the British government has convened for over 500 years; and the Tower of London, witness to 900 years of history, current home to the Crown Jewels, former home of doomed queens, princes, and traitors. Further afield, we’ll tread the storied streets of Oxford, site of the oldest university in the English-speaking world, among whose alumni figure prime ministers, Noble Prize winners, and 11 saints; Blenheim Palace, England’s finest countryside estate and the birthplace of Winston Churchill; and Stonehenge, the iconic Neolithic monument of standing stones and earthworks on the Salisbury Plain. There is also plenty of free time built into this itinerary to allow you to pursue your own interests: London’s must-see art and history museums; fabulous shopping opportunities in Oxford Street, Bond Street, and Knightsbridge; and an extraordinary range of theatrical entertainments in London’s West End . . . and this only scratches the surface. Sign on now!
