After exploring a little of London, it’s time for you to head over to Waterloo where you will be greeted by our friendly Golden Tours staff, for your Afternoon Tea bus tour. The tour will take you past the world famous London landmarks, such as the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace, whilst you are served delicious sweet and savoury treats, plus a glass of prosecco and of course, a selection of different teas.

After your tour has ended, why not visit one of London's museums or galleries. If shopping is more your thing, head to Oxford Street or Regents Street for that retail therapy. Your train back to York Station departs from King's Cross at 19:30 arriving back into York at 21:33.
