London
Relish a day of independent exploration where you can discover London’s famous sights. Hop on the famous Underground, known to locals as “the Tube,” where you will hear the words “Mind the Gap” many times, reminding passengers to watch out for the gap between the train and the platform. This not only provides a chance to mingle with the locals, but the Tube is also a great way to easily get around London, without the hustle and bustle of unexpected traffic. Alternatively, you may wish to embark on an optional full day’s journey to escape the urban rush and explore two southern England treasures: historic Stonehenge and enchanting Bath. (B)
