Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Our most popular Britain tour offers you the best of this great land. You'll have amazing experiences and see the fascinating sights as you travel from London to Edinburgh and back to London. History buffs will be delighted in seeing mysterious, prehistoric Stonehenge (just imagine how these stones got there!); the Roman Baths in Bath, constructed around 70 AD and today one of the best preserved Roman remains in the world; Chester, one of Britain's best cities for archaeological and architectural treasures; Edinburgh, home to many Scottish monarchs, including Queen Margaret, who died here in 1093; and York, England's most complete medieval city with its cobbled streets and the magnificent York Minister. Literary fans will enjoy visiting Shakespeare's birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon; Abbotsford House, home of Sir Walter Scott; Grasmere, home to William Wordsworth; and Cambridge, where you have the chance to explore the city and the colleges attended by many famous writers. But that's not all…Globus has also arranged special, out-of-the-ordinary experiences for you. You'll enjoy Grasmere gingerbread, invented in 1856 in the English Lake District, and a cup of tea and shortbread in Abbotsford.From the historical sights to the beautiful scenery to the special experiences, this Britain tour is a great way to sample what Britain has to offer!

Highlights are a visit to ST. PAUL'S CATHEDRAL (except on Sundays) and the ceremonial pageantry of the Changing of the Guard, if held. Free time in the afternoon for independent activities or to join an optional excursion to Windsor Castle or the Tower of London with its fabulous Crown Jewels.

Tonight, enjoy a welcome dinner with wine at your hotel. (B,D)

Day 4: Bath-Stow-On-The-Wold-Stratford-Upon-Avon-Llangollen, Wales-Chester, England.
