Afterwards, spend a couple of hours exploring and perhaps enjoy an early evening meal before we continue to our hotel.
After breakfast, we'll head to the Royal Docks to meet our local guide. Enjoy a short riverside walk before you board the impressive London Emirates Air Line cable car - stretching 1,100 metres across the River Thames - and take in the stunning views of the O2, Canary Wharf, the City and the Shard. Disembark in the Greenwich Peninsula to visit the newly restored Cutty Sark and explore historic Greenwich. Alternatively, join our optional excursion and enjoy a guided tour of the Old Royal Naval College, and a two-course set lunch. In the mid afternoon we'll begin our journey home, arriving back in the local area by late evening.
