Example Itinerary

Day 1-2

London, England

  • Discover the King’s Royal London residence
  • Exclusive viewing of a 700-year-old nightly ritual

It will come as no surprise, being the capital city, that London holds the most significant Royal and Parliamentary seat of power.

Begin in London where you’ll live like a King in the heart of Soho at the Ham Yard Hotel, famed for its style and service. Walk the halls of The Houses of Parliament and learn the secrets of Buckingham Palace from the impressive exteriors. In summer, visit the State Apartments and Kings Gallery. Step back in time at the Tower of London; glimpse the Crown Jewels and gain access to the Ceremony of the Keys, an evening tradition that has taken place for over 700 years. Upgrade to exclusive private access of this royal moment.

Day 2-5

Cotswolds, England

  • Explore impressive and old English country houses
  • Get a feel for ‘Roman bathing’ whilst taking a warm dip in the Roman Baths

Officially recognised as an area of outstanding beauty, the Cotswolds is quintessential British countryside.

Travel to the Cotswolds for a three night stay at Dormy House. A welly-clad walk from the Cotswolds village of Broadway, the hotel was once a 7th century farmhouse. From this privileged position, you’re within easy reach of some of England’s most famous Stately Homes. Our must-see, Blenheim Palace, warrants a whole day of guiding with your specialist guide; uncover the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill alongside three hundred years of British history. Throw yourself into the thick of Tudor history at Sudeley Castle where Queen Catherine Parr (the last of King Henry VIII’s six wives) called home and is buried.

Day 6-8

London, England

  • A private tour around the world’s largest and oldest occupied Castle
  • An exclusive insight into the country’s most prestigious school

Head back to the Ham Yard Hotel – your luxury London base – for your final days exploring the grandeur of British homes and palaces. Your final stop will be Windsor Castle, one of the King’s three royal residences and favourite place to spend weekends. The Castle has hosted its fair share of Royal weddings and can be explored when not on royal duty. Whilst in Windsor, we can arrange a private tour of England’s most famous school, Eton College. Here, you will be guided by old Etonian who will shed light on what it’s like to be educated at the same establishment as many British prime ministers.


It was my third visit to London and the first that True Travel had organised. Planning was seamless and our guide gave an added insight that you would never get from a guidebook. The whole team loved the trip – thank you to Molly for planning it and it was great to be able to meet you too!
