“Collette's British Landscapes were revelatory”
- QLD, Australia Apr 2019 View Photo

We travelled north to Edinburgh via York, then back south via Gretna Green, staying in a 12th Century Welsh Castle (allegedly haunted), then onto Stratford-upon-Avon where we headed off to fabulous Stonehenge and returned via beautiful Cotswold Cottages.

A fantastic trip with an amazing tour director (Christine) who had so much knowledge about the UK, we were continually amazed (and entertained). Highly recommended tour.
