3 Day Tours From London to English Regions

Small group tour (maximum 16 people) with choice of overnight accommodation


Rabbies small group tour bus in the Cotswolds

Why choose these 3 day English regional small group tours?

London is not England, in fact its a totally different culture and pace of life to much of the rest of the country.

London is very multi-cultural, busy, crowded where people always seem to be in a rush with no time to stop and linger.

Outside London it is different with a more traditional and relaxed, friendly ambience.

 

Day tours from London offer glimpses of some of the finest sights, these short break tours allow you to properly explore a region of England.


Tours are a mix of sights that you will find in all the guide books and other discoveries that only a knowledgeable local can bring to your attention.

Tours are a maximum of 16 people with a driver guide providing a personalised service during the tour.


No tour group is identical but travellers on these tours tend to be 25-35 or over 45 years with a slight bias to females.

Travellers tend to be inquisitive, independent and well educated that appreciate the informed presence of a tour leader.
