Wingardium Leviosa to London!!
Are you ready for a grand ole time across the pond? Join Special Journeys as we return to London, England. We begin this amazing journey with a day at London’s Universal Studios Harry Potter. At this spectacular attraction, we will walk in the footsteps of Harry Potter and explore the wonders of his wizarding world. We will see the movie sets such as the Great Hall, authentic props used in the films like the memory vials in Professor Dumbledore’s office, learn how the creatures were brought to life on the screen, and discover the original costumes (yes, it even includes the Quidditch uniforms!). It will truly feel like we are right there along with Harry Potter!
What’s the best way to get around in London? On a double deck bus, of course. Our famous transportation will bring us to the next attraction, the London Bridge where we will have the opportunity to take a keepsake photo. This iconic bridge crosses the River Thames, which flows through London. And what better way to see the city than by cruising the River. During this sightseeing cruise, we will see Big Ben, The London Eye, Tower Bridge, and many more iconic places.
The double deck bus with then take us to Buckingham Palace, an amazing historical building where you’ll find the famous Queen’s Guards. Don’t try starting a conversation or cracking a joke, these Guards are supposed to stay stoic and not interact with visitors. And just down the road from the Palace we will stop and tour Trafalgar Square.
There will be plenty of time for shopping on your trip. We will stroll the famous Regent & Oxford Street areas, see Harrods, Hamleys Toy Shop and Selfridges. Stroll through SoHo and see Piccadilly Circus which is London’s answer to New York’s Times Square. We’ll be sure to get a taste of local fare as well, Fish & Chips anyone?
It will be a jolly ol’ time in England!
A passport is REQUIRED for this trip.
