This immersive experience will take the group to new depths, with privileged access to working areas usually closed to the public with a behind the scenes tour.

Following on from walking beside shoals of glittering fish under the water, the group will enjoy an above water experience on the MBNA Thames Clippers; the fastest and most frequent fleet on the river. Overlooking the iconic towers of London, lunch will be served as you glide down the Thames on a high speed catamaran.

Once the group is back on dry land, tea and biscuits will be provided before a journey through space and time at the Royal Museums Greenwich, Royal Observatory & Planetarium is next on the agenda. Discover the sites rich history, enjoy a private planetarium show or stand on the Meridian line. 

Back at the group friendly Best Western Palm Hotel, guests can take time to relax in the spacious rooms and take advantage of the hotels amenities before a three course dinner at a luxury location.



After a well rested night and a hearty breakfast at the hotel the Harry Shaw coach will journey to Alexandra Palace for Excursions 2019. Here the group can source out potential for new ideas and prospects to include in their itineraries and brochures. A VIP welcome glass of wine courtesy of Denbies Wine Estate, and a special voucher to redeem in our local street market will await guests on arrival to enjoy.

Later in the afternoon the familiarisation visit will continue onwards to the final visit of the weekend at Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew. Where guests can wonder through the World’s Greatest Glasshouse and enjoy a cream tea. The tour will end once the visit at Kew is complete. Guests can either use public transport to get home from Kew train station or stay on the coach which will take the group back to the hotel to pick their onward transportation up.
