About the London Golf, Theatre & Sightseeing Vacation Package

It is often said how golf resembles the theatre, in that the setting can be so dramatic and there's drama in every match. Well, we've gone one better and put the two together in a wonderfully theatrical tour de force - 7 nights in London playing the best of the championship courses close to the capital and seeing 3 of the top West End shows.

There's more, we have also arranged for sightseeing trips in the capital, a trip on the London Eye, a river boat cruise and a guided tour around the Royal Castle at Windsor - so, you will be entertained on and off the courses throughout.

Centered primarily around the West End, London's world famous theatre scene plays host not only to international hit musicals (many of which began in London), but productions that have successfully made the transition from New York's Broadway.

With an enviable reputation for producing both quality, big budget shows and innovative drama/satirical plays, London's theatres consistently attract the cream of British, American and International stars such as Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kathleen Turner, Kevin Spacey and Nicole Kidman. Popular shows such as "We Will Rock You", "Chicago", "Mamma Mia" and "The Lion King" play to thousands each week and we have listed the cream of the crop for you to select your preferred choice during this trip.

Vacation Information - Golf

St.George's Hill Golf Club
St. George's Hill Golf Club
St George's Hill is the prettiest of the many heathland courses on the Surrey/Berkshire sand belt and, in our opinion, one of the very best. In 1911, a local builder came up with an idea to build luxury fairway-side houses and by chance, Harry Colt was the chosen architect. The course opened in 1913 and is considered to be Colt's greatest work. The land sweeps and undulates like a rollercoaster, and the spectacular panorama from the front of the clubhouse, is one of those views that just grabs your attention.


Walton Heath Golf Club
Walton Heath Golf Club
Having hosted over 60 major amateur and professional championships in its illustrious history, Walton Heath has been graced by the 1981 Ryder Cup, 5 European Open Tournaments, as well as such prestigious amateur events such as the Senior Open, the English Amateur, the Brabazon Trophy, and the British and English Ladies Amateur. Founded in 1903, The Old Course is one of the finest examples of heathland golf, and is ranked as one of the top 100 courses in the world.






The Berkshire Golf Club
The Berkshire
Other than the Berkshire, Sunningdale and Wentworth are the only clubs in the whole of the British Isles that can boast two heathland golf courses positioned in the top 100. Many people say that there is nothing better than a day’s golf amongst the forest, heather and springy turf of the Berkshire. The land was once royal hunting forest and dates back to the reign of Queen Anne. Each hole is played in seclusion, the mature sycamore, birch, chestnut and pine trees providing majestic fairway tunnels.



West Hill Golf Club
West Hill Golf Club
Founded in 1910, West Hill has remained virtually untouched ever since. The course is routed in an out and back fashion across undulating sandy ground. The fairways are lined with pine, birch and of course, tangly heather. Measuring slightly more than 6,350 yards, West Hill is not long by today's standards, but with only two par fives and a par of 69, it represents an enjoyable and testing challenge. If it's charm that you are looking for, then you need look no further than West Hill. This is a truly delightful golf course.
