Looking for a way to extend the fun of your family's Honors Performance Series experience? Our new Sightseeing Extensions allow Junior Finalists and their loved ones to add two additional nights to their stay! A licensed guide will be your host as you explore more of what the UK has to offer.

Note: The Sightseeing Extension is offered only as a full program and cannot be sold as individual components.
