London Day Trip

"Explore London on a Day Trip from Liverpool. Travel by train to the capital for an exciting day out"

If you are visiting Liverpool for a few days then this is an ideal opportunity to spend a day exploring London without any of the hassle. We will help you plan your visit so that you get the most out of your time in the capital city.

We will have everything planned for you, including open off-peak train tickets, a London Travel Pass giving you unlimited travel on the underground, overground trains and buses as well as admission to the Tower of London - all included in this fabulous deal as well as the opportunity to obtain the well known London Explorer Pass at a discounted rate of £45 instead of £65 giving you free entry to a choice of the Top London Attractions.

You will already have your train tickets, London Travel Pass and entry ticket to the Tower of London as you start your journey from Liverpool Lime Street Station.

When you arrive in London use your travel pass for the short journey from Euston to Tower Hill and the Tower of London where you will be able to see the Crown Jewels and learn about the bloody history of the tower through the ages.

Exiting the tower, you will be able to use your London Explorer Pass (if purchased) to visit your chosen attractions as you enjoy a stroll along the banks of the Thames.

Cross over the river using the famous Tower Bridge and turn right heading towards HMS Belfast.

You will pass London Bridge and have the opportunity of seeing a replica of The Golden Hind and exploring the Clink prison.

The name ‘Clink’ seems to have been attached to the prison in the 14th century. One of the most commonly-argued derivatives is that of the sound of the blacksmith’s hammer closing the irons around the wrists or ankles of the prisoners, although the Flemish word ‘klink’ meaning ‘latch’ (perhaps referring to the latch on the gaol door) could also have influenced its attachment. Whatever the etymology, the prison subsequently bequeathed this name to all others, resulting in the development of the expression, "to be thrown in The Clink."

The London district of Bankside, with The Clink Prison Museum at its heart, is the essential first step for all US visitors making their own pilgrimage to trace the steps of those first Mayflower settlers in the 400th anniversary year of 2020.

In London’s oldest neighbourhood, you will discover the untold prequel to the world famous story of the Mayflower Pilgrims; Southwark at the time was governed by the Bishop of Winchester and was far more liberal than the City of London on the other side of the river. It was a natural home for anyone whose ideas, interests or profession lay on the edge of the law – or beyond it.

It was here, for example, that the Globe Theatre was built in 1599, beyond the reach of the London authorities, and where Shakespeare’s plays The Tempest, King Lear and Twelfth Night – all three connected to the Pilgrims – were first enacted.

Passing the Millennium Bridge, Blackfriars Bridge and Waterloo Bridge you will approach the London Eye where you can enjoy panoramic views of the river and the City of London. If that is too tame for you, the London Dungeon is nearby – enter if you dare!

If the London Dungeon was a little too scary then you have the chance to calm your nerves in the Sea Life Centre where you can watch aquatic life swim all around you as you walk below the water through glass tunnels.

Cross over Westminster Bridge and you are heading towards the Parliament Buildings – the Palace of Westminster and Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben).

From here you can head towards Westminster Abbey, Downing Street and Churchill’s War Rooms or take Birdcage Walk to Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace before walking down The Mall past St James’s Palace to Trafalgar Square where you are able to visit Body Worlds (not for the faint hearted) or take the Bakerloo Line to Baker Street if you would like a bit of fun at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Works.

Enjoy the rest of your evening in London, maybe have a meal or visit a bar before heading back to Euston Station for your return journey to Liverpool.
