1
Arrive In London, England
Welcome to London! Uniformed Globus Hosts are available to help you make the most of your stay.
2
London
After a hearty English breakfast, morning sightseeing with a Local Guide includes all the famous landmarks: the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben beside the Thames River, Westminster Abbey, Whitehall's mounted horseguards and the Prime Minister's Downing Street residence, Piccadilly Circus, and Buckingham Palace. The highlight is a visit to ST. PAUL'S CATHEDRAL (except on Sundays), Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece built between 1675 and 1708. Free time in the afternoon for independent activities or to join an optional excursion to Windsor Castle or the Tower of London with its fabulous Crown Jewels. Later, how about an optional dinner, followed by a cruise on the Thames River? (B)
3
London - Stonehenge - Bath
Meet your Tour Director and travelling companions, and depart at 8 am for a memorable day of sightseeing. First, try to unravel the mystery of prehistoric STONEHENGE. Explore the visitor centre with its imaginative exhibitions, then take the shuttle to the stone circle and admire the magnificence of the monument up close. Cross Salisbury Plain and head for the elegant Georgian city of Bath, where you see the amazing excavations of the ROMAN BATHS. You will also have time to explore the town further on your own. Tonight, enjoy a welcome dinner at your hotel. (B/D)
4
Bath - Ludlow - Llangollen, Wales - Liverpool, England
This morning, drive through the fertile Severn Valley and across unspoiled countryside to the medieval market town of Ludlow, perched on a cliff above the River Teme. The afternoon is dedicated to North Wales. Take a stroll in picturesque Llangollen, host to one of the world's most colourful annual music festivals, before continuing on to Liverpool, hometown of The Beatles and once the departure port of great transatlantic liners. (B)
5
Liverpool - Grasmere - Gretna Green, Scotland - Edinburgh
Focus on the tranquil Lake District, recently awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. Take a break in Wordsworth's beloved Grasmere, and try original GRASMERE GINGERBREAD. Then, head north for the Scottish border. On the way through the history-steeped Lowland Hills, stop at Gretna Green and visit THE WHISKY HOUSE where an expert explains the mysteries behind whisky production and lets you taste some well-known malts. In Edinburgh, don't miss our optional Scottish evening with Highland dancers, bagpipers, and the Ceremony of the Haggis. (B)
6
Edinburgh
Morning city sightseeing with a Local Guide introduces you to the 200-year-old "New Town," and the famous scientists, inventors, and novelists who lived there. In the "Old Town," visit EDINBURGH CASTLE to admire Scotland's Crown Jewels. The afternoon is free to enjoy the Scottish capital at your own pace. Later, a unique optional experience: board the former Royal Yacht Britannia, once the perfect royal residence for glittering state visits and family holidays. Dinner rounds off this optional evening. For departure numbers 0729 through 0819, tickets are included for tonight's performance of the world-renowned MILITARY TATTOO, a vast spectacle of massed Scottish pipe bands that takes place in an arena on the esplanade of Edinburgh Castle. (B)
7
Edinburgh - Abbotsford - Jedburgh - York, England
First on today's agenda is a guided tour of Sir Walter Scott's ABBOTSFORD HOUSE, with its impressive collection of historic relics, weapons, and armor, as well as an extensive library with over 9,000 rare volumes. Melrose Abbey and the ruins at Jedburgh are pointed out on the way to the English border and Northumberland National Park. In York, England's most complete medieval city, stand in awe in front of the great structure of York Minster, then follow your Tour Director through a maze of quaint streets, including the narrow Shambles. (B/D)
8
York - Stratford-Upon-Avon - London
Leave Yorkshire and its associations with James Herriot, and drive through the richest farmland in Britain. In Stratford-upon-Avon, take pictures of Anne Hathaway's Cottage and visit SHAKESPEARE'S BIRTHPLACE. Return to London around 3:30 pm. How about a night out on the town with newfound friends? A three-course pre-theater dinner followed by one of London's West End shows might take your fancy. (B)
