Enjoy the city with the time and tools to craft your own experience at your side

Great Britain may look small on the map, but navigating its biggest city can be daunting.

Wander the smoky Dickensian streets of cobblestone and hanging lamps, or stroll across Windsor Bridge and admire its stout castle on the horizon. If you like to move a little faster, chase the wealth of landmarks around the city in an action-packed week of expedition.

Dickens was famous for traipsing through central neighborhoods at all hours of the evening to observe the raw urban experiences that defined his most famous works—and you’ll get to follow his steps over 150 years later.
