London has been a city of wealth and extravagance since the courts of the Middle Ages. Whether your party includes six hundred guests or you’re looking for an intimate trip for two, here is a guide to travelling around the capital in the utmost luxury.

Sailing tours

Can there be a more breathtaking way of experiencing London’s scenery than by boat? Hire a luxury vessel and glide down the Thames for an unforgettable view of the capital’s major landmarks, including London Bridge, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye.

If you have a large party, many options are at your disposal. Sail through the heart of London in a tall ship while enjoying a banquet of luxurious dishes inspired by London’s maritime heritage, or cruise at a leisurely pace in a paddle steamer, savouring the view and the canapes at once. The choice is entirely yours.

If you want to travel in a smaller, more intimate craft, consider hiring a Venetian water limousine for a cruise. These exquisitely crafted boats are available for daytime sightseeing or for romantic night sails down the river and provide regular charter services to VIPs.

Luxury train travel

Enjoy a truly remarkable day trip from London by train. Relax in carriages ordinarily reserved for royalty and visiting heads of state, richly decorated in period 1920s style to reflect the era in which they were first built.

Take afternoon tea in an opulent vintage parlour while speeding through the English countryside, or enjoy a full meal of seasonal British ingredients paired with the finest wine.

Sightseers won’t be able to resist a luxurious excursion to richly historic and royal houses, such as Blenheim Palace, Chatsworth House and Sandringham. If you’re visiting London and you want to visit some of the UK’s most beautiful locations including Cambridge, Ely and York will likewise be delighted by the service on board a luxury train.

This unusual means of travelling to and from London is bound to give you an experience you’ll never forget.
