TLS Slider Images 2 14 Royal Connections

A series of private tours arranged by The London Season’s travel arm, Royal Connections, allows guests to experience countries at a truly royal level of hospitality and privilege. However, they are not just self-indulgent sejours for the social elite; they generate funds for various charities and raise awareness of the work of The London Season around the globe.
