Travel to England++

Welcome to yet another tour from Jookender – Our families with Teenagers 12.5+ will be traveling through England and Ireland this Summer. In a friendly, non-judging environment, we will be exploring the relationship between Harry Potter Books, WWII, and Jewish Peoplehood.

We do not include flight or stay, or most of the meals into our price. We know that some of you will be using travel points, others may have various meanings and needs for living, so that part is on you. We will only provide you the program and we charge you for the program at a very discounted rate – thanks to the grant we have received from our Jewish Federation.

Our journey will have 2 parts and you’re welcome to join one or another, or both. We arrive in London on August 3, and later same day begin our journey.

First part is called "London":

The tour will begin in the late afternoon of August 3. We suggest that you take a direct, nonstop flight to London. These are “Red Eye” flight. So, you’ll be in London early morning and have time to relax, check in to the hotel (in the afternoon), take a shower and a quick nap, and get ready for the evening walking tour. We’re also suggesting this hotel for your stay: Hampton by Hilton London Waterloo, 157 Waterloo Road London SE1 8XA United Kingdom. You would need 6 nights – August 3 through August 9th. Or, August 8th, if you are willing to fly back same night your tour with Jookender ends. You don’t have to, but whichever hotel you would end up booking, please, make sure they have breakfast for you. There will be no time in the morning to shop for breakfast around, so better to have it at the hotel. This particular area would be the best. If you see the red pin on the map – this is where Sasha will be living during our stay in London. There are plenty of hotels in that area. Would be nice if we all book close to each other during our stay in London.

While we’d like to wait with the day-to-day schedule until we have the group filled, here is the list of attractions we propose to checkmark during our stay in London (the attractions may slightly change, based on the availability and unforeseen closures):

In London:

  • Westminster Bridge
  • Palace of Westminster
  • Westminster Abbey
  • Big Ben (currently closed for reconstruction)
  • The Tower of London
  • Imperial War Museum (Churchill War Rooms)
  • Buckingham Palace
  • Horse Guards Parade
  • London Eye
  • The Graffiti Tunnel
  • Hyde Park
  • St. Paul Cathedral
  • Business City of London
  • Jewish London
  • Greenwich
  • Sherlock Holmes/Baker st.

Country trips from London we anticipate to take:

  • Windsor, Stonehenge, and Bath
  • Cotswold & Oxford
  • Harry Potter Warner Bros Studio Tour

6 nights, 6 days. Early Bird Special Cost - $550 Adult, $450 Child


Those of you, who will go to both, London and Dublin parts, will also catch a few Beetles & Soccer related tours in Liverpool and need to book one night in Liverpool (Check in August 9, check out August 10) You will also need to book an evening direct flight Liverpool – Dublin, we suggest taking Ryanair airline for the direct flight the flight is under $50 including checked luggage, at 7:35 pm arriving to Dublin at 8:30 pm. The trip from London to Liverpool can be done via train (5 times a day) or a bus. The distance is similar as from Boston to NYC.

Those who will join us for only Dublin (Ireland) part. We’re planning to spend a full day of Dublin Sightseeing and then 3 days visiting various stunning natural wonders of Ireland, as such:

  • Giants Causeway, Dark Hedges, Dunluce & Belfast
  • Wicklow Mountains, Glendalough & Kilkenny
  • Cliffs of Moher, Atlantic Edge & Galway City

You will need a hotel for 5 nights there. Or 4, if you have a red-eye fly back home, but that’s a stretch. Any central location is good (Check in – August 10, Check out August 15)

4 days, 5 nights ($350 adult/250 child)

Prices are valid until March 31, 2023. $100 more per person starting April 1st, if not sold out.

Refund Policy: Full Refund until February 28, 2023. No refund after that day, unless we find a replacement for you. We recommend you to purchase an insurance that will cover both, the tickets, the hotel, and the Jookender part. The insurance, as well, as discounted tickets and hotel can be purchased through the Travel Agent Galina Barry (of Aphrodite Travel) 1-617-816-2849
