Day 1 London

  • Buckingham Palace
  • Tower of London
  • Westminster

Where to begin? London is not just the biggest and best tourist destination in the UK, it’s one of the best in the world too. Oozing history, culture, prestige, style, and everything else in between, this city should not be missed. Shop til you drop on Oxford street, stuff yourself silly with fish and chips, catch a West End show, get a glimpse of the Queen at Buckingham Palace, hear Big Ben chime at noon – the list is endless!

Day 2 Portsmouth

  • Portsmouth Historic Dockyard
  • Spinnaker Tower
  • Southsea Castle

The only island city in the UK, Portsmouth is a pretty and historically significant port that was one of the most important military bases in England. It has a particularly rich naval heritage, and a visit to the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, with several historic ships, is a must. The futuristic Spinnaker Tower is the place to go for sweeping views of the harbour, while history buffs should check out the Southsea Castle, dating from 1544.

There are plenty of other things to do too, including a zoo, aquarium, museums and exhibitions.
