Our intercity services run direct to London St Pancras from Sheffield, Derby, Nottingham and Leicester, so you can arrive in the capital in comfort and style. Plus, get 2FOR1 entry to many of London's top attractions when you travel with us.
With a huge range of retail spots, London is an excellent city for keen shoppers. Covent Garden is ideal if you like your shopping mixed in with a little culture – you’ll find some seriously sophisticated street entertainment here. Oxford Street is the best place for high street heroes, while Shoreditch is better-suited to the edgy. For souvenirs, head to the famous Carnaby Street.
If you’d rather indulge in some pure, unadulterated sightseeing, you’re in luck. From Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace, the capital is a playground for tourists. Don’t have time to see them all? Cheat by hopping on the London Eye.
London is also full of museums and other tourist attractions. The London Dungeons are a firm favourite, and the Natural History Museum offers an exciting day out – plus, it’s free to enter. Don’t miss the city’s many parks, too. Kensington Gardens are particularly scenic, and home to the Peter Pan statue.

Emery Walker's House**Advanced booking only. Please use 'Buy Online'**
*Open March - November*
7 Hammersmith Terrace is a tall Georgian house on the River Thames. From 1903 to 1933 it was the home of Sir Emery Walker, printer, collector, and mentor to his neighbour William Morris. He furnished the house with wallpaper, textiles and furniture from Morris & Co., as well as ceramics and rugs he collected on his travels throughout Europe. The manner of decoration is very much that found in the homes of his friends, the leaders of the Arts & Crafts movement, William Morris and Philip Webb. Thanks to the efforts of Walker's daughter, the furnishing and decoration of the house has survived almost exactly as it was in his lifetime. As such, it is the only interior of its kind in Britain.
Visitors can hear about the stories of Emery and his family and friends, how the house came to be preserved and the importance of the house to the Arts & Crafts movement.

The Foundling Museum explores the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery.
Established in 1739 by philanthropist Thomas Coram, and continuing today as the children’s charity Coram, the Hospital was set up as an institution ‘for the maintenance and education of exposed and deserted young children’. Instrumental in helping Coram realise his vision was the artist William Hogarth, who encouraged leading artists of the day to donate work, and the composer George Frideric Handel, who gave annual benefit concerts of his Messiah. Through a dynamic programme of exhibitions and events, we celebrate their vision and the ways in which artists and children have inspired each other for over 275 years.
Discover the intriguing story behind this important London institution and the children who grew up there, alongside original period interiors, poignant artefacts and inspiring art.
