Departing by Rail
Duration 5 Days
Available July - September 2017

Everyone knows that summer nights by the Thames river lights don’t come cheap. With 4 star rooms in the capital often pushing £200 a night in high season, even with pre–booking, a week in London in July or August might seem out of the question.

Not so with us. On this great deal you get a FIVE day break in London at a central 4 star hotel with full English breakfast and rail travel to and from your local area.

Price Includes

  • Return standard class rail travel from your chosen departure station to London (you may have to pay a supplement for your area. First class travel is offered from most stations.)
  • Four nights stay at a choice of 4 star central London hotels with full English breakfast
  • Excursion to Windsor
  • Free time in London
  • VAT at 20%

Optional excursion to Richmond and Hampton Court  available (£19pp).

Subject to availability. Single supplements apply.



Take the morning train to London from your local station and make your way to the Thistle Euston Hotel or Tower Guoman hotel for check in at around 4pm, after which you can enjoy the first of your four nights stay.


After breakfast you have the whole day to do the sights. Some of the big name attractions have big entrance fees to match, so if you’re planning on visiting these you might be better off buying a London Pass – see


Breakfast, and then our optional excursion to Richmond and Hampton Court Palace, including admission to the palace, the famous maze and gardens, plus a multi–language audio guide and costumed guided tour as well as coach transfer and a visit to Richmond. If you’d like to take this tour, just choose this option at the time of booking (supplement of £19pp).


Today there is an optional free excursion to Windsor. You can explore the area, stroll down The Long Walk in Windsor Great Park, wander in Windsor Forest by Virginia Water, or perhaps take a short boat trip up the Thames from Windsor Promenade. The castle itself is also open to visitors but a visit takes around 3 hours and queues are common so you might want to pre–book on their website.


After breakfast you have a free day before making your way to the railway station in the mid to late afternoon, for your journey home.
