London

A whole day in the capital is available to our Inters and Teens. We explore the sights, hear the sounds, taste the food and sample the London life.

Your day will begin with a walking tour, so this trip is ideal for our campers who like to be on their feet all day. There might be an opportunity to have lunch in a park before continuing the walking tour.

After a dinner with everyone, it's time to make our way to the theatre, ready for a West End show! When the curtain goes down, it's back to the coach to return to a sleepy camp!

From aged 10 upwards.

Only included in the Capital Gold service.
