London, England, September 28, 2010

Since 1984, Golden Tours has been providing visitors London sightseeing at its best. From day trips to evening tours, the company provides unique access to some of London’s most popular attractions and professionally-guided tours.

Just in time for the holidays, Golden Tours offers its unique brand of quality sightseeing during the Christmas celebrations. There’s no better place to be than London Christmas Eve and Golden Tours gives travelers a wealth of different options to explore England’s capital city during this special time of year.

The “Sights and Sounds of London” offers a full whistle-stop tour of the city, while “London at Night” is a lovely Christmas treat as the whole city is aglow.

Midnight mass at St. Martin in the Fields is another London Christmas Eve tradition. Golden Tours has put together a panoramic city tour followed by a three-course Christmas dinner and the midnight mass for a special London Christmas Eve package.

For a different way to see the city, a Christmas cruise is also great fun. Tour London from the Thames on one of the Christmas Day lunch cruises and enjoy a traditional Christmas meal on board.

For those looking to go further afield, London serves as a great base for several special day trips during the holiday season. A “Dickensian Christmas in Canterbury, Dover and Greenwich” offers a drive through the beautiful Kent countryside to arrive to Canterbury Cathedral for the Christmas “Sung Eucharist” service. Afterwards is a visit to the White Cliffs of Dover and historic Greenwich, famed for its maritime past.


Another winning Christmas combination is the “Windsor, Bath, Stonehenge, and Salisbury tour.” The grand sites of Windsor Castle and Stonehenge take on an added appeal with the possibility of a white Christmas. And imagine beautiful Bath under a blanket of snow! See one of Britain’s finest medieval cathedrals in Salisbury, after feasting on a huge Christmas lunch.

Golden Tours has put together another smart holiday choice with the “Oxford, Cotswolds, and Stratford tour” with Traditional Christmas Lunch. The tour travels from the centre of academic excellence to the legendary bard’s birthplace. Visitors will explore Oxford’s narrow alleys and picturesque squares, take in the natural beauty of the Cotswolds and marvel at Christ Church, where many scenes from Harry Potter were shot. A traditional Christmas lunch feast in Shakespeare’s hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon completes the unforgettable day.

These are just a few of the many tour options available to visitors to London this holiday season. Castle-lovers can look for other Golden Tours excursions that include stops at Warwick and Leeds Castles. Even the company’s regular sightseeing tours such as “Historic and Modern London” operate during Christmas, ensuring customers will always have great tour possibilities at their fingertips.

With Golden Tours many holiday tours, the Christmas lights of London shine bright!
