Cheerio—nope, not a cereal in London (it’s a friendly goodbye). Football—nope, not the kind played by the Green Bay Packers (it’s what Americans call soccer). Jumper—nope, not a person taking a leap (it’s a sweater). Imagine the fun you’ll have translating between British English and American English during your 1-week holiday to London. But don’t worry, if you can’t figure out what the locals are saying, you can always ask your Monograms Local Host® who will be on hand throughout your holiday to support you, give suggestions, answer questions, and help make your holiday exactly what you want it to be. Plus, your Monograms package also includes hotel reservations, sightseeing, daily breakfast, and a destination guide to familiarise you with the city. When you arrive in London, you will be met by your Local Host, who will help make sure your holiday runs smoothly. The next day, enjoy exclusive, half-day guided sightseeing with a local expert. Hear the fascinating stories that only insiders know and see the sights you cannot go home without seeing—like Westminster Abbey and Big Ben. You’ll also visit St. Paul’s Cathedral (except on Sundays), which held its first service in 1697 and was the marriage site for Lady Diana and Prince Charles; and you’ll witness the Changing of the Guard (you’ll be the envy of your friends!). On days 3-6, you’ll have plenty of leisure time to get to know London.
Perhaps take in a West End musical; shop at Harrods and Selfridges; visit Windsor Castle, the world’s oldest and largest occupied castle; ride the London Eye; visit the Tower of London, built by William the Conqueror in 1066-67; and eat a typical British meal of fish and chips. Perhaps take excursions to mysterious Stonehenge, Leeds Castle, or Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon. Monograms offers over 40 activities and excursions, so with a week, you’ll have time to truly experience London and its exciting and fun offerings. And…your Local Host will be at your service to arrange excursions or to give you insights into this marvellous city. Insider knowledge is truly priceless. With Monograms, you can rest assured that when you say “cheerio” to London, you will do so feeling delighted with your holiday.
