LONDON IS THE PERFECT PLACE to count down the seconds and watch the old year turn into the “new.” The streets of London are never more peaceful than after Christmas. Boasting four World Heritage sites—the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Maritime Greenwich, Kew Royal Botanic Gardens—over two hundred ‘free-admission’ attractions, 6,000 restaurants, more than 40,000 shops and 83 major street markets, glorious parks, pubs and the best theater scene on the planet, this lovely and eminently walkable city awaits both the first-time visitor and seasoned traveler. We’ve included a “landmarks” sightseeing tour including Big Ben, Trafalgar Square, St. Paul’s Cathedral and Buckingham Palace and an evening out highlighted by a magical ride on the London Eye and a tour of the Covent Garden area. You can sweeten your holiday with a choice of exciting optional tours both in and outside the city and a chance to watch the spectacular New Year’s Day Parade which starts at Parliament Square when Big Ben strikes noon.
