In addition to exploring our hubs of Roman Bath and Royal Windsor (6 nights each), we will experience everyday English village life including 2 dinners at traditional pubs serving craft ales and local farm-to-table food, world famous English heritage sites, churches that have watched over their parishes for centuries, independent shops and galleries and so much more. We will learn the stories behind these spectacular cities, stunning scenery, countryside and castles, and sweeten our British experience with a traditional afternoon cream tea and world-famous gin. This tour indeed offers an opportunity to experience the “Essential England”.
