londonFREE GUIDED COACH TOUR

Based on conversations with Group Leaders during the last school year we estimate that up to 70% of students travelling with LTT have not visited London before.

For that reason we now offer a FREE GUIDED COACH TOUR OF LONDON with commentary by your LTT Guide.

The route includes some of London’s most famous sites including, Trafalgar Square, National Gallery, Whitehall, Horse Guards Parade, The Cenotaph, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, River Thames and London Eye.

The commentary includes comments on everyday London as well as the historical significance of some of the sights. Interesting questions are answered and fascinating facts revealed.

The result is that, as well as enjoying their theatre-based visit, students will hear and see a little more of their capital city than they perhaps expected to.

If you are interested in the sight-seeing tour please tell your tour co-ordinator so that we can include it in your suggested itinerary.
