Day One: Arrival Day in London

On arrival into London Heathrow you are met and greeted by a local chauffeur who transfers you to your home for three nights; a beautiful private house on a pastel-painted terrace in Chelsea, just a few steps from the King’s Road.

The adventure begins this afternoon with a step back in time with a horse-drawn carriage ride through the Royal Parks and past Buckingham Palace.

This unique journey completes at the entrance to the iconic Harrods of Knightsbridge, where you can be greeted by one of the Doormen welcoming you to the most famous department store in the world. It’s full of treats and toys to bring a smile to children’s faces!

 

Day Two: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Spend the morning in the company of your costumed guide and discover the perfect world of the most famous British nanny – Mary Poppins!

Discover the Banks Family’s London. Explore the spaces that gave inspiration to PL Travers for her beloved story and learn a little about the author’s life and how Mary went from the page to the screen.

Warm up your vocal chords and put a spring in your step as you explore London – singing to the birds on the steps of St. Paul’s Cathedral, exploring the rooftops where the chimney sweeps hang out, and protesting for the rights for women’s votes!

This afternoon, choose from two distinctly delicious experiences:

  • Mayfair Morsels – Delve into the history, secrets and traditions of British chocolate on a private walking tour through Mayfair, one of London’s most fashionable areas. Begin with a hot chocolate before setting off to explore the charming streets and arcades to discover, amongst others, the Queen’s favourite English fondants and special chocolates which have been beloved by Londoners for generations. Your guide will ensure that you also learn lots about local history and the area’s fascinating stories along the way.

 

  • Incredible Ice Cream – Explore Soho and Covent Garden with visits to five of London’s best gelaterias along the way. At each stop, indulge in tasting new icy delights – perhaps the best chocolate gelato and sorbets you’ve ever tasted as well as the chance to sample a few unusual options if you’re willing! Cups, cones, spoons, frozen drinks and waffles… It’s an ice cream lover’s heaven.

 

This evening, best seats have been reserved for you at a top West End Show. Your chauffeur is on hand to take you to and from the theatre.

Day Three: Women's rights and a 'spoonful of sugar'

This morning, head to Westminster for a privately guided tour of the Houses of Parliament, before it opens to the public. On your tour, walk the hallowed halls and discover the story of the suffragette’s campaign for women’s rights that was such a strong passion for Mrs Banks.

Afterwards, enjoy some time to explore London with your Guide before heading to The Shard for a playful journey down memory lane with an exciting Afternoon Tea full of nostalgic and creative sweets and savouries that pay homage to the world’s most famous nanny.

Amongst other delicious treats, enjoy one of Mrs Brill’s homemade scones with jam and clotted cream accompanied with a cup of ‘Bert’s Tea’.

From the Shard your view over London is spectacular, giving you the feeling of flying above the clouds.

 

Day Four: Homeward Bound

Your chauffeur is on hand to take you to the airport this morning.
