BRITAIN UNCOVERED - 2019

Tour Code - GF 12 days - LONDON to EDINBURGH From $2699 USD

Join us in exploring the undiscovered, authentic and timeless destinations of Britain. Begin in London for some historical sightseeing before venturing on to Stonehenge for an up-close view of the mysterious stone formations. You’ll drive through magnificent scenery to Cornwall—a film location for the Poldark series. In Plymouth, see the Mayflower Steps where the Pilgrim Fathers embarked for America in 1620. Cross the wild moorlands and deep river valleys into Dartmoor and maybe join the locals in a cozy tea room or a friendly pub in the village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor. Dip into history with a visit to Bath’s excavated Roman Baths, the grand socializing complex dating from 70AD. Stay overnight in the Welsh capital of Cardiff, and travel to the Cotswolds, taking in its picturesque villages and rolling hills on your way to Stratford-upon-Avon, historic home to William Shakespeare.

Birthplace of Charles Darwin and one of England’s finest medieval towns, Shrewsbury is located in the glorious countryside near the Welsh border. Next, visit The Beatles Story in Liverpool, then travel further back in time to England’s Lake District aboard a steam railway train. From your carriage, savor the lovely views of the Levens Valley, and continue your journey on a Lake Windermere cruise to Bowness. On the way to Glasgow you’ll visit Gretna Green where the blacksmith was known to wed young runaway couples since the 1700s and still a popular wedding venue today. Follow the “bonnie banks” of Loch Lomond and the wild Rannoch Moor into the Scottish Highlands. Try to catch a glimpse of “Nessie” in Loch Ness and hear about the famous battle of Culloden before spending the night in Inverness, the beautiful Highland capital. See St. Andrews, home of golf and tour Edinburgh Castle to admire the Scottish Crown Jewels. Specific departures of our escorted tour of Britain include the world-renowned Military Tattoo performed on the castle’s esplanade in a mass spectacle of Scottish pipe bands, music, dance, and pageantry by performers from around the world!
