Overnight Tour to London


  • The coach will leave Royal Well Bus Station at 7:00 a.m.
  • I have maps of Greenwich to give you on the coach.
  • We will probably be back in Cheltenham by 6:30 – 7:00 p.m.

Please remember your U3A Membership cards.

Programme: We travel by coach to Westminster and board a river boat to travel to Greenwich.  There will be free time there, with lots to see. You can visit the Cutty Sark or the National Maritime Museum, which is a great museum with free entry.  Other possible visits could include the Queen’s House, the Royal Observatory or the big Greenwich Sunday market.  Or you could enjoy a walk along the Thames path.

I hope to provide maps for you showing these places.

In the late afternoon we rejoin the coach and travel a very short distance to the Clarendon Hotel, a 3 star hotel overlooking Blackheath, where we will have dinner, bed and breakfast.
Next day we visit the Royal Chelsea Hospital and will be shown round by a Chelsea pensioner.  We will also visit the nearby National Army Museum.

Cost: This is likely to be £159, fully inclusive of coach, hotel B and B and entrance fees on day 2.  There is a good allocation of single rooms with NO SUPPLEMENT for this tour.  Depending on numbers it may be a little less than£159.

To book for this tour, please contact me.  Details in latest newsletter which can be found in the Members Only area. When you have your place confirmed, please send me a deposit cheque for £50 payable to ‘CITY and VILLAGE Tours’.  My address is at the front of the newsletter.  All cheques must be with me by October 5th AT THE LATEST.  The balance will be due in January.

Sorry this is so far ahead, but the Chelsea Hospital tours are all fully booked until late January.  More details in the next newsletter.
