Day 01: Arrive London
Arrive in London. A private transfer is included to take youto your pre-booked hotel. You are free to enjoy London independently today. (Please note, hotel check-in is generally between 2 pm and 4 pm. If you are arriving into London early -the hotel will be happy to hold your luggage until your room is ready).

Day 02: Shrewsbury
Make your way to the London departure point. Tour departs fromLondon at 9:15 am. Departing London, we make our way to William Shakespeare's birthplace Stratford- upon-Avon, home to theTudor thatched cottage and gardens of his wife, Anne Hathaway. We have time to explore the magnificent village of Stratford and enjoy lunch (not included), before continuing to the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge. Set in a stunning forested gorge on the River Severnthis historic valley boats the world's first ever iron bridge and a host of attractions to choose from. It was once described as the most extraordinary district in the world! From here we travel to the beautiful riverside town of Shrewsbury for the next two (2) nights.

Day 03: Shrewsbury
This morning, our tour will take us into the heart of North Wales. We travel through beautiful green valleys and lovely little towns and villages then visit the picture book medieval castle of Conwy, built by Edward I in the late 13th Century. We explore the impressive mountain scenery of the Snowdonia National Park including the huge Dinorwic slate quarries and the dramatic Pass of Llanberis in the shadows of Snowdon Wales' highest peak. We hear tales of Owain Glyndwr and the Welsh struggles for independence before travelling back through the borderlands into England. Return to Shrewsbury for overnight.

Day 04: York
To the northeast of Shrewsbury, lie the hills of the Peak District National Park with a mixture of stunning scenery and beautiful little villages. We take a scenic route through the Park to the village of Castleton, then in the afternoon, we can visit the famous mansion house and gardens of Chatsworth, home to the Cavendish family, Duke of Devonshire. Chatsworth is often named the UK's favorite country house and a visit will reveal some of the finest collections of furniture, priceless paintings, Old Master drawings, and neo-classical sculptures. From here we travel east out of the hills to the wonderful historic city of York where we spend the next three (3) nights.

Day 05: York
Today, you have a choice of things to do. You can spend the whole day at leisure exploring the medieval heart of York, a city whose rich history goes back to the time of the Romans, Vikings, and Normans. Visit some of the fascinating museums, the amazing York Minster, or just lose yourself in the maze of narrow streets and ancient city walls. Alternatively, you could join your guide on a half day excursion into the Yorkshire Dales visiting the historic market towns of Knaresborough or Ripon, some of the attractive little villages, and beautiful countryside of the Eastern Dales, followed by a free afternoon in York. Our driver/guide will let us know all the details of pickup times for the next day.NOTE: We leave the London based tour here and will be picked up tomorrow by a new driver/guide as our tour bus make its way north.

Day 06: York
This is a leisurely day that gives us the flexibility to spend time exploring the medieval heart of York before joining our excursion to the North Sea coast of Yorkshire. Our journey begins in the late morning, when we head for the magnificent North Yorkshire Moors National Park. Lunch will be in Whitby, a bustling fishing port and the inspiration for the fertile imagination of author Bram Stoker, who stayed in the Royal Hotel on the western side of Whitby while writing his famous novel Dracula. After lunch (and free time in Whitby) we travel to the fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay,* a perfectly preserved conservation village of winding lanes and narrow alleys,before returning to York.*The minicoach cannotaccess the main village because of local restrictions. The coach willdrop us at the top of the village and we must walk down (and back up!) a steep hill to reach the old village center. Overnight inYork.

Day 07: Keswick
We are collected from our accommodation and head west into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Established in1954, the Yorkshire Dales National Park has outstanding scenery, a range of wildlife habitats, and a rich cultural heritage. It's a special place, a fantastic outdoor arena for recreation, peaceful relaxation, and a haven for wildlife. Continuing west, our route takes us through the Northern Dales, an area ofoutstanding natural beauty that is the center of the Dales cattle trade. Our final leg of today's journey takes us high up into the remote hills of the Yorkshire Dales, before descending into the lively market town of Keswick,** where we are dropped off at our accommodations and are then free to explore this charming town.(**During July this tour may stay in Windermere instead).

Day 08: Keswick
After breakfast, we head a short distance out of town to the mysterious Castlerigg Standing Stones, thought by many to have been built over 5,000 years ago and the scene of ancient rituals. We travel on to the shores of Ullswater, described as England's most beautiful lake, where we can take a forest walk to see the mighty Aira Force waterfall. Continuing south over the narrow and winding Kirkstone Pass, we stop at Windermere, where we have the option to take a leisurely cruise on the water or simply eat lunch while enjoying views of the mountains and lakes. After lunch, we travel around the southern tip of Windermere and on towards Coniston Water, after which we arrive at the picturesque conservation village of Hawkeshead, where the poet William Wordsworth attended Grammar School. After free time to explore the village, we take the narrow country lanes north towards Grasmere, which Wordsworth described as “the loveliest spot that man hath found.” There is free time to visit Wordsworth's Dove Cottage or enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Wordsworth Daffodil Garden by the River Rothy. In the late afternoon, we return to Keswick for overnight.

Day 09: Touring - Edinburgh
Leaving the Lakes behind us, we start our climb of Hartside Pass, which stands at over 1,900 ft. On a clear day, the hills and mountains of Scotland and the English Lake District are clearly visible as we follow the route of the old sheep drovers between England and Scotland. Stopping at Hadrian's Wall, built by Emperor Hadrian to keep the Scots out of the Roman Empire, there is an opportunity to explore some of the Roman remains and walk in the footsteps of the Roman Centurions who patrolled this desolate frontier. Following the ancient Roman Dere Street, we cross into Scotland and continue on to the Bordertown of Jedburgh for refreshments in the shadow of the ruins of Jedburgh Abbey. Our final stop is at the world-famous Scott's View, encompassing outlooks of the River Tweed and the Cheviot Hills that broadly form the Scottish-English border before continuing north to Edinburgh, where our tour ends. Make your way independently to your pre-booked Edinburgh hotel for your final night.

Day 10: Edinburgh - Home

    Everything that was detailed in the itinerary was carried out during the trip. Our guide Terry was wonderful, professional and very informative. He explained important details and made sure we saw all we could. The bus was clean and comfortable.

    This was my fourth trip to Ireland and by far the BEST with Celtic Tours!!!! The tour locations were wonderful and our tour guide, Sean was awesome!!! Sean was very educated on the country and we learned so much from him. He was very accommodating and allowed extra time where we would like to stop. I would HIGHLY recommend Celtic Tours and Sean as your guide.
