Travel Itinerary

Destination 1: Cotswolds

You’ll meet your tour group in London, but your trip truly begins once you leave the bustling capital and make for the Gothic spires of Oxford. Explore this medieval college town on foot and drink at pubs once frequented by  J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.Then it’s on to the honey-colored cottages of Cotswold and some proper English pudding for dinner. 

Destination 2: Wales

Today your journey takes a turn towards the rugged landscapes of Wales in Snowdonia National Park. On arrival, take a steam train up the country’s highest mountain, Snowdon, and get a view of the surrounding countryside—look out across Llyn Llydaw where legend has it King Arthur cast away the excalibur sword.

Destination 3: Liverpool

Ready for some Beatlemania? Today, you’ll return to England to see where it all began, the fiercely proud city of Liverpool. Bus to all the town’s Beatle sites and visit the Beatles Story Museum, where the origin story of the legendary band comes to life. Of course there’s more to Liverpool than John and Paul, take some time to explore Old Town, where medieval Snickelways provide plenty of photo ops. 

Destination 4: Ambleside

Take a deep breath of the pure Lake District air. It doesn’t get much better than this.  Your first stop is Beatrix Potter’s farm. See the landscape that inspired her classic children's books, you might even see a “Peter Rabbit.” Continue your literary journey at Dove Cottage, the former home of William Wordsworth. Round off the day on the water with a cruise across Lake Windermere.

Destination 5: Scotland

Take your leave of England and head to the misty mountains of Scotland’s Northern Highlands. Here, you’ll explore the worn stones of medieval cathedrals and spin a yarn in one of the cozy pubs. Be sure to pay a visit to Rosslyn Chapel–an excellent example of 15th century stone masonry–and delve into local tradition with a bagpipe show and a haggis dinner before your tour comes to an end.
