Follow the river west outside of the centre of London and you’ll eventually come upon Windsor Castle, the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world. It also happens to be the Queen’s favourite weekend retreat. The castle was built in the 11th century and it is certainly an impressive site, particularly along the approach from Long Walk.
Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew
More than a million people visit Kew Gardens and its 121 hectares every year. Situated in Richmond upon Thames, Kew boasts the world’s largest collection of living plants with more than 30,000 different varieties, including countless exotic species, despite its location in London. In order to thrive, these plants are contained in its famous botanical glasshouses, some of which are over 250 years old.
Thames River Cruise
A cruise along the River Thames is a great way to get a real sense of the city and how it has changed and adapted over the ages. You only have to glance at a cityscape as striking for its post-modern architectural wonderments as it is for its historic cathedrals and town halls. Along the river you will be treated to some of the very best views of central London, especially if you travel at night when the city lights up.
The London Pass comes in 1, 2, 3 and 6 day durations and can be delivered to you. Order online at the official London Pass website >
