Description

On the outskirts of north London, experience beautiful natural settings of the outer London greenbelt, Watford city centre and some interesting local houses including Bhaktivedanta Manor, which was originally donated by the former Beatles member, George Harrison to the Harikrishna movement.

Watford Palace Theatre which first opened in 1908 gives you the feeling of going back in time and a sense of historical importance. Warner Brothers Studio is also close by and is a must for Harry Potter fans. Fortunately, a visit to the Studio is included in this tour!

● Visits to YMCA activities and participation in events
