Tour Highlights

Experience London During the New Year!

Begin the New Year in one of the most exciting cities in the world – London! You can choose from so many ways to celebrate: Soak in some culture in one of the many museums, see a West End musical or enjoy a concert. Shop the sales, or relax in a cozy pub with some fish and chips. Get your skates on at one of the festive skating rinks around town, or take a stroll in one of the city’s famous parks.

Special highlights of the city’s celebrations include fireworks on New Year’s Eve or the parade on New Year’s Day. (If you’d like to reserve tickets for the best views of the fireworks, you can buy your ticket from an official vendor site later this year.)

The city breaks in our Getaway collection give you the freedom of independent travel, but with the added bonus of access to the expert knowledge only CIE Tours can provide. We’ll help you get up to speed quickly and hit the city!
