City getaway.

Day Trips from London

Bath

Named for the Roman Baths here, this town is an easy train from London. The city is charming with beautiful architecture and great for getting lost in with cute cafes and shops all around 


Oxford

Home to the prestigious Oxford University, visit this small town outside of London and take a tour of the campus to learn more about the history of the school and current practices. Then find the Turf Tavern for a bite to eat and grab a drink outside


Seven Sisters

If you’re looking for a nice walk or longer hike, Seven Sisters is perfect. Depending on your preferred distance, you can do an out and back or town to town walk. Either way, the coastal walk provides beautiful views and is a great outdoor day trip


Margate, Broadstairs, & Ramsgate

Great for a walk and beach visit, take a walk between these three coastal towns to explore a few different towns and explore interesting beaches. Time the walk between Margate and Broadstairs to be at low tide to take advantage of a unique beach walk. Broadstairs is the cutest of the three towns and great for a snack or afternoon drink 


Whitstable

Small beach town great for a summer escape on a sunny day. It’s well‑known for oysters so find a spot to enjoy some local cuisine 

Cambridge

Home to Cambridge University with River Cam running through the town where many like to try out punting, Cambridge is a beautiful English town. The campus is spread across the area and the city centre has many shops, restaurants, cafes, and pubs worth checking out. This is a very easy day trip from London with trains running frequently and often less than an hour in length 

White Cliffs of Dover

Dover brings a town with a lot of history and access to admire the beautiful white cliffs. Plan a day away from London to explore the town and then enjoy a walk along the coast with views of the White Cliffs along the way 

Windsor

Known as one of Queen Elizabeth’s favorite spots, visit Windsor to take a tour of Windsor Castle and make the famous Long Walk for an afternoon stroll. 

Canterbury

A very quaint English town, Canterbury offers a nice change from the chaotic city feeling often felt in London. The pace of life will feel slower here, allowing you to take a relaxing afternoon wandering the streets and parks in Canterbury 

Brighton

Many direct trains run between Brighton and London daily making it easy to get from the city to the beach for a day. Enjoy an afternoon soaking up the sun on Brighton’s pebble beach 



Stonehenge

An impressive stone structure due to the sheer size of the stacked rocks. The rock structure can be seen from a nearby highway, but is worth stopping at the museum and purchasing a ticket to see up close. Interestingly, Stonehenge is a mystery and it is not clear to historians on how the structure was built. There are many theories, but origins remain unknown. 

Rye

Take a train out to the town of Rye and plan to walk out to the Camber Sands beach for the morning, located just 3 miles from the town. Save some time to explore the town and find the Ypres Beer Garden for an afternoon pint before making the short journey back to London
