England's capital city is one of wonderful contrasts and should be explored on a coach holiday. It is a place where complex labyrinthine alleyways hide behind grand thoroughfares, where traffic-rammed streets edge sweeping, serene parks and where the glassy, modern Gherkin and the Tower of London can be admired in the blink of an eye on your coach trip. London was once the industrial heart of the British Empire and the street arteries still throb like they used to, although these days they are full of people, trademark black cabs and red double-decker buses.
Coach Trips to London
As the biggest city of Europe it goes without saying that the 'Big Smoke' offers infinite things to do on London tours. From the architectural splendour of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben to the cultural overspill of galleries, museums and attractions, there are more encrusted gems in London's metropolis than there are in the Crown Jewels, suiting every pocket, pleasure or pastime on a London sightseeing tour. Stand at the gates of Buckingham Palace or catch the ceremonious changing of the guards as you tour London. Visit Westminster Abbey, the final resting place of several great historical figures or admire Lord Nelson up close in Trafalgar Square during your coach tour of London. Take a ride on the British Airways London Eye, great for seeing the city with all its landmarks in place, or tour the Tower of London where gunpowder plotter Guy Fawkes was tortured and three queens of England were beheaded. Tour London to rub shoulders with the celebrities at Madame Tussauds, take afternoon tea at the Ritz or give your bank balance a pummelling in Selfridges or Spitalfields Market. At the end of a hard day of London sightseeing by coach, the city's endless eateries offer great places in which to unwind, whether you decide to plump for an off-the-wall sushi bar or a trusty Pizza Hut.
