London City Tours
ABOARD CELEBRITY APEX
Live it up in London with a Celebrity City Stay. Spend three incredible days and nights in one of the world’s most famous cities before your ship even sets sail. The 3-Day All-inclusive London Tours package includes luxurious accommodations at The May Fair Hotel, plus tours guided by experienced local independent operators* to show you the best must-sees around town.
Explore London at your own pace. Landmarks like Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and the River Thames are only a short walking distance from your hotel. Venture to the English countryside on a scenic drive down winding roads and watch the hills rise gently from the meadows of the Upper Thames as you make your way to the charming stone cottage-lined villages of the Cotswolds.
Visit Hyde Park and the reconstructed Globe Theatre. Or journey into rock & roll history with a tour of Abbey Road Studios, the famed Beatles studio nearby. Experience the rich history of England’s capital with your local independent expert guide -- from Westminster to Whitehall, and St. James, crossing Westminster Bridge over the River Thames, Big Ben, and so much more. It’s an in-depth adventure like no other in one of the world’s top cities right before your unforgettable cruise.
Welcome to London. When you land at the airport, you’ll meet your private transportation to take you to your luxury accommodations at The May Fair Hotel. Located in one of the city’s most exciting neighborhoods, your hotel puts you right in the heart of town where there’s tons of great attractions only steps away. If you have any questions or are looking for tips on where to go and what to do, the hotel hospitality desk is available to book tours, arrange reservations at restaurants, and much more. You’ll have the whole afternoon to explore some of London’s most incredible institutions and landmarks, like the Royal Academy of Arts, Spencer House, or Wellington Arch. Shop exclusive boutiques on Bond Street or dine at Berkeley Street’s famous restaurants. Plus, you can escape the city bustle with a stroll through nearby Hyde Park.
Start your day with a wonderful complimentary breakfast at the hotel. Then, you’ll be picked up at your hotel for the amazing guided Panoramic London & St. Paul’s Cathedral tour. This leisurely experience takes you around the capital, where you’ll view all the city highlights from the comfort of a luxury coach. Explore the hustle and bustle of Leicester Square, at the heart of London’s theatre district to the grandeur of Buckingham Palace and the glorious St. Paul’s Cathedral, and so much more – London’s fascination is in its variety. You’ll find a fascinating mix of the historic and the modern side by side at every turn.
Your morning tour concludes with a traditional pub lunch in central London, where you can savor traditional British fare, like scotched eggs, steak, and kidney pudding, or fish and chips, then wash it all down with a delicious English ale. After, you can return to the hotel to relax and plan the rest of your day in London.
Your second day in this exciting city calls for a night on the town. Explore London’s evening offerings with a spectacular show in the West End. Or, you can also relax and enjoy an exclusive Mediterranean dining experience at The Private Dining Room, which is tucked away in a discreet area of the hotel. All can be arranged in advance. Your hotel concierge can assist in booking theater tickets, dinner reservations, or anything else.
Start your third day in London with a complimentary breakfast before departing for the Cotswolds Countryside and Bath tour. The Cotswolds are considered by many to be among the most beautiful areas in England. This region is well-known around the world for the beauty of its towns and villages, from modest cottages and imposing manor houses to impressive churches, all built in mellow stone. You’ll enjoy some of the finest English landscapes, with rolling hills and tree-lined valleys during the morning part of your tour.
The afternoon part of your tour begins with a visit to Bath. According to legend, the town of Bath owes its origins to the Celtic King Bladud, who discovered the curative properties of its natural hot springs in 860 B.C. The Romans later built baths around these natural springs. You’ll learn about the fascinating history surrounding the baths, the skillful Roman engineering that eventually transformed the springs into a destination visited by Queen Ann in 1702 – 03 A.D., and into the enduring landmark that it is today. Following your visit to the Baths, you’ll have lunch at a local restaurant.
Once you’ve returned to your hotel, you can make plans for a fun last night in this incredible city. However, please note that depending on traffic, the Cotswold Countryside and Bath tour may run late. So, we recommend not booking any theater tickets for this evening.
