Day 2
London, United Kingdom
The Kensington Breakfast

Enjoy a half-day of sightseeing (4 hours) around Westminster in your private vehicle with your expert local guide who is keen to share his knowledge and local insight with you. Visit Westminster Abbey and the National Church of England which has been the scene of many state occasions, including the Coronation and more recently the wedding of Prince William to Catherine Middleton. Continue on to Trafalgar Square, where the National Gallery of Art is overshadowed by Nelson’s Column. Head down historic Whitehall and past Downing Street, to the Houses of Parliament. Finally return to your hotel past Buckingham Palace, the Queen’s official residence in London.


The afternoon is at leisure to begin your New Year’s celebrations.


This evening you may wish to attend the spectacular fireworks display held at the London Eye by the River Thames. Each year thousands of people flock there to celebrate and welcome in the New Year starting with the famous countdown of Big Ben’s chimes.

Perhaps enjoy an exceptional dinner at the Oxo Tower Restaurant which also offers stunning

views over the Thames and promises a wonderful spot from which to view the fireworks.

Wonderful Experience

By: Janice


Reviewed on: 27 Jul 2015

Abercrombie & Kent made arrangement for us to have drivers for July 5th, 6th and 7th and to return us to Dublin on the 8th. Although the drivers said they were not from A&K, they had been hired by them and took us to the preplanned sites and tours that we had agreed on. In addition, they (one on the 5th and 6th, another one on the 7th and 8th) included many sites and historical tours of the cities which we visited. Both were excellent drivers and expert guides! They were not, apparently, aware of the agreed to contract with A&K and we did have to pay for admission to all the tours that required fees, but we felt we got so much more from their experience that the cost was well worth what we paid.

Our family loved our trip to London! We were well taken care of by Peter and Vanessa. They were warm and welcoming to us in addition to being very knowledgable about everything London. Our Guardian Angel checked in on us several times and it was nice to have a contact in London in case an emergency arose. Thank you for helping to execute a wonderful, memorable trip!
