Example Itinerary

Day 1-4

London, England

  • Enjoy a charming afternoon tea at a world-famous hotel
  • Witness the daily tradition of Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace

As one of the most visited cities in the world, experiencing the English capital means to cover royal, historical and cultural landmarks by foot, through green parks or down the Thames river.

Begin your English adventure in London where you’ll stay for three nights at London’s oldest hotel, Brown’s. Whilst exploring the capital, position is everything and Brown’s hotel makes for the perfect base as the main attractions are all within walking distance. Prepare to cover some ground with your own private guide and check off your London bucket list witnessing the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace and posing by Trafalgar Square. Refuel on our preferred Afternoon Tea and let your jaw drop at the Crown Jewels and ghastly historical stories from the Tower of London.

Day 4-7

Cotswolds, England

  • Explore the charming English countryside, with access to a private guide and car to go wherever you want
  • Visit the birthplace of Shakespeare to enjoy one of his famous plays

The hustle and bustle of the city can be overwhelming and The Cotswolds offers a quintessentially British escape not far from the capital.

Travel to the charming village of Southrop to stay at Thyme, a glorious countryside retreat. More of a home than a hotel, borrow a pair of wellies to explore the grounds, roll home from the pub after sampling some local ales and tuck up surrounded by divine interiors. We can also arrange a cooking lesson for you at the onesite cookery school. By day, travel with your private guide to access Stonehenge or explore the Roman Baths of Bath. Shakespeare enthusiasts can visit his birthplace and a replica of the Globe Theatre where the best tickets can be arranged for performances.


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!
