We'll drop you in the heart of the capital, within walking distance of some of London's top London attractions. The coach will stop on Haymarket, just a stone's throw from Trafalgar Square and The National Gallery which offers free admission and is home to pieces from Monet, Michelangelo and more. St. James’s Park is nearby too, its bordered by The Mall and Horseguards Parade and surrounded by famous royal landmarks such as Buckingham Palace and Clarence House. You can also enjoy impressive views of the park’s lake, fountain and resident pelicans from the roof terrace at St James’s Café.

Just ten minutes' walk from Haymarket is Covent Garden, with its unique blend of over 200 global and independent brands and its iconic street performers! Look out for Chanel, Hackett, Hotel Chocolat, Jo Malone, L’Occitane, Lulu Guiness, Pandora, Whittard of Chelsea, not to mention all the delicious restaurants, cafés and takeaways dotted in between this stylish shopping neighbourhood. Here you’ll also find The London Transport Museum with a fascinating collection of vehicles, objects, photographs and more from the last 200 years (admission fee).

Just a little further, and closer to The Thames, is Somerset House which regularly plays host to free and unique exhibitions. Here until 28th April is a large scale commission from Hong Kong based artist Zheng Bo, which sees the courtyard transformed into a bamboo garden (free entry).

Head north towards Oxford Street for the free Butterfly Trail, a brand new immersive mixed reality experience at The Now Building (free entry). This vibrant animation, brought to you by Pixel, is rapidly becoming one of London's most visited attractions.

The coach is due to arrive at 12:30 and we'll depart at 17:15. We are planning to set down and pick up on Haymarket, close to His Majesty's Theatre. There will be a short services comfort stop on the outward and return journey. Entry fees may apply and pre-booking may be required at the suggested attractions. Please check with the venues before departure.
