The best views in London are from the river, so enjoy two different perspectives in two days - upstream from Windsor past Eton to Boveney Lock, then downriver from Westminster and the Houses of Parliament to Greenwich. One river, two cruises, a 3–course dinner and a 4 star hotel all add up to a terrific weekend, plus you get some time in Greenwich and a full English breakfast on top. That's a boatload of good value!

Saturday After a morning departure from your local area we travel by comfortable coach to Windsor, the world famous home of British monarchs for a thousand years. The best views of the castle are from the water, so we've arranged a river cruise along the Thames from Windsor Promenade upstream to Boveney Lock, taking in the sights of Windsor Racecourse, Mill House, Brocas Meadows, and Eton College and Boathouse. Afterwards there will be free time to explore Windsor, browse the shops, walk in the Great Park by Virginia Water, or perhaps go round the castle itself †. Around 5.30 p.m. we'll rejoin the coach, then carry on to your 4 star hotel within 20 miles of central London. There you can take some time to relax before your 3–course evening meal and your overnight stay.
Sunday After a delicious full English breakfast we will head into central London in time for embarkation on the second cruise at Westminster Pier. The cruise starts at the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, and takes in the London Eye, London Bridge, St Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf, the Gherkin and the Shard. At Greenwich you'll have time for a short break to explore the area, and perhaps have a look in the Maritime Museum or tread the decks of the Cutty Sark. We'll rejoin the coach for the journey home in the mid to late afternoon.
†A castle visit would normally take around 2–3 hours. We recommend you check times and pre–book on the castle's website to avoid queues.
