NEW for 2013! Attend a 5-night, once-in-a-lifetime London travel event September 19 – 24, 2013 that takes you inside one of
the world's most powerful and dynamic cities – London. You'll take home
rare insights provided by uncommon access to cultural icons and historic settings, including spectacular venues closed to the public – open for Tauck guests only. Days are filled with small group themed sightseeing tracks delving into diverse topics such as the maritime role of the British Empire, Victorian London, London's Contemporary Art Scene and World War II London. Private dinner events include evenings at the Hampton Court Palace of King Henry VIII and the historic Guildhall. Go behind the scenes of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, savor a private performance of Baroque music, attend a lecture by Celia Sandys, granddaughter of Sir Winston Churchill, and have a rare opportunity to privately view the Crown Jewels prior to the opening of the Tower of London. And as a fitting finale, cruise the Thames to Greenwich for dinner at the newly relaunched Cutty Sark. Throughout The Tauck London Event, guests will meet and have discussions with local experts on art, maritime history, Charles Dickens, World War II and more. One departure only, so make your plans early.
