Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Your journey through the lush landscapes of Britain will see you visit mythical Stonehenge, Cardiff and the Lake District, before rambling up Edinburgh's Royal Mile and back to London.

Day 1 - Arrive London (2 Nights)
Brightly coloured Union Jacks pave your way to an unforgettable journey through Britain, which kicks off in London. Visit 'The City' and see the imposing dome of Christopher Wren's St. Pauls and the Tower of London, or admire the pageantry of royal palaces, cathedrals and parks, exploring the city on your own terms.
Accommodation: Hilton Kensington

Day 2 - London Sightseeing and Free Time
Join a Local Specialist today for a grand exploration of the vibrant British capital, including such sights as Big Ben and the imposing Houses of Parliament on the banks of the Thames, then Buckingham Palace, the official UK residence of the UK's sovereigns since 1837. Spend the rest of the day on your own, exploring the centuries-old heritage and modern sophistication of London.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 - London – Stonehenge – Bath – Cardiff
Experience first-hand what's "great" about Great Britain on this mesmerising sojourn past the peaks of Wales and the rolling hills and lush farmlands of England to "bonnie" Scotland. We kick-start our adventure in the cosmopolitan capital of London, heading west to Stonehenge's stone monoliths, whose centuries-old myths have yet to be fully revealed. The elegant Georgian architecture of Bath takes centre stage during our visit to this famous spa town. Here, we'll see the Abbey and visit the Roman Baths, before crossing the Severn Estuary to Cardiff. Delve into the proud culture and heritage of the Welsh as you embark on an orientation of the city to see the Principality Stadium and Cardiff Castle, in the heart of the city. Tonight, we celebrate the beginning of an epic adventure through Britain at a Welcome Reception.
Accommodation: Park Inn City Centre
Meals: Welcome Reception

Day 4 - Cardiff – Ludlow – Liverpool
The half-timbered Tudor houses of Ludlow feature today on our exploration of this market town with its medieval walls and historic castle. We journey north through the Shropshire Hills and Cheshire landscapes to the bold British city of Liverpool, hometown of the 'Fab Four'. Saunter through its edgy Scouse streets and perhaps visit The Cavern Club, where The Beatles once played, on your evening at leisure.
Accommodation: Jurys Inn
Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 - Liverpool – Lake District – Gretna Green – Edinburgh (2 Nights)
The enchanting views of Britain's Lake District provide a scenic backdrop for our leisurely drive north to Scotland. Skirt the romantic shores of Lake Windermere and enjoy views that inspired literary greats like William Wordsworth. We stop at the runaway wedding capital that is Gretna Green where "Blacksmith Priests" would marry couples over the Marriage Anvil. Later, we arrive in enchanting Edinburgh - our home for the next two nights.
Accommodation: Leonardo Royal Haymarket
Meals: Breakfast

Day 6 - Edinburgh Sightseeing and Free Time
Ramble up the Royal Mile in the mesmerising medieval city of Edinburgh, where you'll join a Local Specialist on an included city sightseeing tour. Stroll through the Old Town and view Arthur's Seat and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, for centuries the seat of the kings and queens of the Scots. Visit Edinburgh Castle perched atop Castle Rock overlooking the city. Spend the rest of the day exploring Auld Reekie's medieval relics and elegant Georgian and Gothic façades on your own, or join your Travel Director on an Optional Experience to visit the Royal Yacht Britannia. This evening, consider attending a lively Scottish banquet with traditional haggis and bagpipes.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 7 - Edinburgh – Hadrian’s Wall – York
Trace the northern frontier of the Roman Empire at Hadrian's Wall before crossing the River Tyne and venturing south to the ancient cathedral city of York, whose origins hark back to Roman times.

We did a tour with Trafalgar last year in Italy and loved it. This tour did not seem as well organized and I did not see some of the things I had hoped to see in England. Liverpool could have been left off the tour. The Beatles optional tour was the only thing offered there and it was just a big city otherwise. We would have loved spending more time in some of the smaller places and there is so much history in Great Britain that this tour just did not touch on.

Our trip was great. We had a fabulous time. The tour guide was very friendly and helpful (and quite funny - we laughed a lot). We would definitely book with them again.

great bus driver, but director did not come up to my expectations as compared to other tour directors I have traveled with. We had long periods of silence on the bus, little info of what we were seeing on the bus as we traveled the road little history of what we were going to see, what info we received was mostly read to us, very formal she was a good organizer, pleasant and courteous. I would recommend longer time at the major sites even if we saw less sites.
