* DAY 1

Get ready for the fun! Arrive in London and transfer to your Deluxe hotel in the heart of the city. You’ll receive a Welcome Packet filled with helpful information, including tips on restaurants, the London Underground (subway), museums, shopping, and more. Gather in the late afternoon for a Welcome Reception, followed by a Welcome Dinner in your hotel.

* DAY 2

Today you’ll discover Windsor Castle and Oxford on a full-day tour. The largest inhabited castle in the world, Windsor Castle is an architectural masterpiece of Georgian, Victorian, and Gothic design, the centerpiece of a site covering more than thirteen acres. The interiors are stunning, filled with paintings, carvings, and tapestries, as befits the favorite weekend residence of the Queen. “The City of Dreaming Spires,” Oxford is the home of the oldest university in the English-speaking world, a place of cobbled streets, serene architecture, and centuries of tradition. Back at your hotel, gather for the Vantage Reunion Cocktail Reception, followed by a fabulous show at a theater in the West End.

* DAY 3

Tour the Tower of London this morning, home of the Crown Jewels and site of untold sieges, captivities, and executions through the centuries. Enjoy the afternoon free. Or, if you like, hop on our shuttle to Harrods and Harvey Nichols, two of the most luxurious and fascinating retail stores in the world. Tonight we gather for the Grand Gala, a multi-course dinner with wine, music for dancing, fabulous entertainment, and a very special guest speaker. It’s sure to be a night to remember!

* DAY 4

Enjoy a City Tour of London, including a visit to beautiful, regal Westminster Abbey, burial place of kings and poets. This afternoon, all aboard a leisurely cruise down the Thames, seeing the city slowly unfold before you. Along the way, you’ll see how the river locks operate and stop at Greenwich, site of the International Meridian, zero degrees longitude. A lecture here will illuminate the history and importance of the Prime Meridian. Dinner is on your own this evening, an opportunity to discover London’s world-class restaurants and chefs, but our special Vantage Concierge will be happy to assist you.

* DAY 5

You’ll have another opportunity to board the shopping shuttle to Harrods and to make London discoveries on your own. (Your Welcome Packet will provide plenty of suggestions.) Later, depart to the airport for your flight home or to join your Vantage Journey.

Please Note: The sequence of included features will change depending on your arrival date. Travelers whose first day in London is Oct. 3 will enjoy a Farewell Dinner on Day 4 rather than a Welcome Dinner.
