Our London Days are single-day walks and events in the capital which explore the cultural riches of the most fascinating and varied city on earth.
The Days incorporate most of the key ingredients of our residential tours – specialist speakers, top-flight musicians, impeccable organisation, thoughtfully constructed itineraries, good food, conviviality. The only significant difference is that no overnight accommodation is provided.
One range consists of a series of special concerts in three or four different buildings, which are selected for being of high architectural interest. There are for large groups of around a hundred.
The other series follows the format of our small-group tours. With around 10 to 15 participants, they explore aspects of London’s art, architecture, history and cultural life under expert tutelage and often with special access to places usually closed to the public. All are accompanied by a tour manager to ensure arrangements run smoothly.
These are active days, often with a lot of walking and standing. Travel is mainly by Underground, sometimes taxi, occasionally by private coach or bus.
