Day 3: London

Take a London Eye River Cruise and see London from a different perspective. Enjoy a unique 40 minute circular sightseeing cruise on the River Thames with fascinating live commentary that brings the city to life, presented by specialist guides. Enjoy views of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, St. Paul Cathedral, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.

Enjoy wonderful sights of the city of London from the London Eye Ferris wheel! The London Eye (also known as the Millennium Wheel), at a height of 135 metres (443 ft.), is the biggest Ferris wheel in Europe, and has become the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom, visited by over three million people in per year. At the time it was erected, in 1999, it was the tallest Ferris wheel in the world, until it was surpassed by the Star of Nanchang (160 m) in May 2006, and then the Singapore Flyer (165 m) on 11 February 2008. However, it is still described by its operators as "the world's tallest cantilevered observation wheel" (because the entire structure is supported by an A-frame on one side only). The London Eye is located at the western end of Jubilee Gardens, on the South Bank of the River Thames between Westminster Bridge and Hungerford Bridge. Fast track tickets for the London Eye allow you to skip the majority of the queue and check in just 15 minutes before the experience booked.

Day 4: London

Spend the day outside of London on a shared guided tour taking in the magnificent Stonehenge and Bath. Clouded in mystery, the ancient stone circle of Stonehenge is an amazing feat of engineering and the most important prehistoric site in England, but beyond its archaeological significance and possible astronomical role, Stonehenge is also a place of spiritual importance. Early legends link it with Merlin and King Arthur, but over the last hundred years, the midsummer sunrise has attracted pagan groups and followers of the Ancient Order of Druids. Entrance fee to Stonehenge is included. 

Afterwards, enjoy a whole afternoon to discover Bath's major sights. A walking tour will show you Pulteney Bridge and the Circus, and you will get a fascinating insight into how Bath became the world-class attraction it is today. Bath offers a unique experience with stunning architecture, great shopping and iconic attractions. You will have plenty of time to discover the Jane Austen Visitors Centre, Bath Abbey or the Roman Baths.
