DAY 2: LONDON

After landing, clear immigration and customs and meet your KIconcerts Tour Manager. We look to start our day’s orientation tour with a visit to Buckingham Palace to see the Changing of the Guard (if arriving early enough and if the Changing of the Guard is held this day - otherwise we’ll plan this for another of your days in London). We will also have picture opportunities at Big Ben, Westminster’s Houses of Parliament, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square. Check into our hotel before the first of our daily English dinners. Overnight London 

DAY 3: LONDON

A full English breakfast is served every day (try the baked beans or black pudding if you dare) before we head out for further touring of the City of London traveling past the Bank of England, Tower Bridge, the Museum of London visiting either John Wren’s St. Paul’s Cathedral or Westminster Abbey, the site of so many coronations and royal weddings. Perhaps sing our first London CONCERT at Southwark Cathedral. Overnight London

DAY 4: CANTERBURY | LONDON

Traveling East past the Docklands, revitalized for the 2012 London Olympics, we arrive in Canterbury with an opportunity for a 30 MINUTE RECITAL in this Cathedral bursting to the rafters with history and the Mother Church of the worldwide Anglican (Episcopalian) Communion. After touring the magnificent Cathedral, we explore the township of Canterbury before returning to London where attending a West End show might be an option. Overnight London

DAY 5: STONEHENGE | BATH | LONDON

Tour Stonehenge and marvel how massive blocks of rock (some 30 tons or more) were hauled many miles before aligning them with the summer and winter solstices on a site where a monument is believed to have stood for some 10,000 years making this one of the most famous prehistoric sites in the world. We continue on to visit the well preserved Roman city of Bath touring the Roman Baths themselves (as fine as any still standing in the world) and the Grand Pump Room giving us an insight into the Roman empire. We return to London for our overnight stay 

DAY 6: LONDON

Tour the Tower of London seeing the magnificent Crown Jewel collection of some 23,758 gemstones many of which are still used in royal ceremonies before riding the London Eye high above London. Enjoy an EXCHANGE PROGRAM with a local ensemble prior to a shared CONCERT. Overnight London

DAY 7: WINDSOR | OXFORD | LONDON

Visit Windsor Castle, still very much a working castle and one of the favored homes of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, before touring Oxford to see many familiar Harry Potter sights and visiting Christ Church College. A fine English farewell dinner caps off a great tour to this land of ‘pomp and circumstance’. Overnight London

DAY 8: DEPART

Transfer to London airport for the journey home or stay longer in England to explore London and the surrounds.
