We’ll discover the most charming and romantic areas of the country, tour a number of beautiful castles and gardens, including a day trip to Blenheim Palace near Oxfordshire (where Winston Churchill was born), see English bone china being made right in the factories, shop china outlets, antique shops and famous flea markets, all while enjoying afternoon tea each day. We’ll even soak in the waters at a luxurious spa in Bath.
The tour will be a uniquely casual, family-style experience as we travel together as a small group. The trip includes private bus transport between cities and first-class train fare into London, and Underground (Tube) passes. We will explore each city on our itinerary as fully as possible, by utilizing hop-on busses and visiting the top attractions.
The 4-Star hotels and inns we select are chosen for their charm, amenities, and location, so you can easily explore on your own in the evenings, or stroll to a nearby restaurant for dinner. Porterage for one piece of luggage is included.
Our Afternoon Tea each day will vary from charming owner-operated tea rooms, to hotels and department stores and a royal greenhouse. You will marvel at the different experiences that each offers.
