"England is a land of myths and legends, the home of King Arthur, Robin Hood and the mysterious standing stones of Stonehenge."

Escorted Tours and Holidays in England

England means different things to different people. For some, it’s the thwack of leather on willow on a village green, the vinegary tang of fish ‘n’ chips, and the warmth of a cosy country pub on a winter’s day. For others it’s the red-brick terraces of Manchester, the stark beauty of the Peak District and the fervour of a lower league football match. England’s cities tell the story of modern Britain, from the skyscrapers of central London to the curry houses of Birmingham, while the countryside is scattered with castles and battlefields that evoke more distant times. England is also a land of myths and legends, the home of King Arthur, Robin Hood and the mysterious standing stones of Stonehenge.

London is in many ways the least English city in England, a truly global metropolis that welcomes millions of tourists every year. A varied and polyglot population imbues the city with a breathtaking diversity, and the capital’s theatres, restaurants and museums are second to none. To the east you’ll find the pancake flat landscapes of East Anglia, including the sleepy Norfolk Broads, while to the west the terrain undulates with gentle hills as you approach the Cotswolds and the West Country. Some of England’s most spectacular landscapes can be found in the north of the country, including the ever-popular Lake District, and urban regeneration projects are putting cities like Liverpool and Newcastle firmly on the tourist map.

 

Touring Highlights in England 

  •  The Lake District has a timeless appeal, home to majestic fells, quaint Lakeland towns and a rich literary heritage.
  • Rolling hills, honey-golden villages and elegant stately homes make the Cotswolds a prime tourist destination, with Shakespeare’s hometown Stratford-upon-Avon and historic Warwick both just up the road.
  • London has so much to offer: the theatres and nightlife of the West End, the pageantry of Buckingham Palace, the scrumptious street food of Borough Market, the masterpieces of the Tate Modern… we could go on!
  • Devon delights with golden beaches, handsome harbours and wild moors, while neighbouring Cornwall is home to craggy castles, spectacular coastal scenery and the innovative Eden Project.
  • England’s southern shores are home to all manner of attractions, from the UNESCO World Heritage cliffs of the Jurassic Coast to the genteel Isle of Wight. Head inland for rest and relaxation in the beautiful New Forest, or spend a weekend by the seaside in swinging Brighton.
  • Explore the medieval streets of York, home to one of Europe’s most striking Gothic cathedrals, and learn about the city’s fascinating Viking past at the recently refurbished Jorvik Centre.
  • Enjoy punting down the river amongst centuries-old colleges in Cambridge, or wander amongst dreaming spires and world class museums in the rival university city of Oxford.
  • Treat yourself to a soak in the revitalising spa waters of Bath, a city of elegant Georgian terraces, or discover the world famous street art and historical heritage of neighbouring Bristol, home to Banksy, the S.S. Great Britain and the Clifton Suspension Bridge.
  • Big blue skies, tranquil waterways and picturesque windmills make the Norfolk Broads an ideal destination for a relaxing break.
  • The rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester runs deep, not least on the football field, and both cities can lay a convincing claim to the title of ‘capital of the north west’, with fantastic museums, revitalised waterfront districts and buzzing bars.
