Capital themed trips

GROUP travel specialist Albatross London has launched a new brochure for 2016 including itineraries to suit groups planning a trip to the capital.

Highlights include a selection of ‘Best in Show’ garden visits including Hampton Court, RHS Garden Wisley, Kew Gardens, The Savill Garden and Eltham Palace.

London’s Royal Palaces form the basis of four itineraries, including Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace, and the Houses of Parliament are the subject of another, with different inclusions that can be mixed and matched.

Groups interested in sports can choose ‘The Olympic Legacy’, a two-night tour incorporating a guided tour of the ArcelorMittal Orbit tower, a guided tour of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, a 45-minute boat trip, plus VIP discount passes for Westfield Stratford City.

Guided tours of Lords Cricket Ground or a visit to the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum, followed by afternoon tea at Wimbledon’s Wingfield Café, are also available.

Full details of all the tours, plus one incorporating a trip to the top of The Shard and tickets to West Ends shows, can be found in the brochure, which can be viewed online or ordered at www.albatrosstravel.com. For further information telephone 020 7534 0000
