Always wanted to know more about the world’s most famous bard? In Stratford-Upon-Avon, you’ll stand in front of Shakespeare’s birthplace, see the humble schoolroom where he learnt to write and visit Anne Hathaway’s cottage. Drive through the rolling hills of the Lake District and the Cotswolds; and wander the pretty town of Tetbury on your way to Bath, where you’ll explore the excavations of its Roman baths. Enjoy tea and pastries at Salisbury Cathedral, get an inside look at Osbourne House – Queen Victoria’s holiday home on the Isle of Wight – and stop by Stonehenge to see the ancient monuments, where you can also walk around five specially constructed Neolithic houses and explore the latest archaeological research in the newly built Visitor’s Centre.
Spend time in London, where you’ll get a guided tour to show you the sights of Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, and go inside St. Paul’s Cathedral. Our Tour Directors and Local Guides will be on hand throughout your tour with tips and recommendations for making the most of every stop, so you come away with a new perspective on the places you thought you knew. Because sometimes the best discoveries happen at home.
