1 London - Stratford-Upon-Avon - York
Indulge your love of theatre and poetry this morning as we travel to romantic Stratford-upon-Avon, made famous by its favourite son, William Shakespeare, whose extraordinary works have been admired by audiences for over 500 years. View Anne Hathaway's thatched cottage and visit Shakespeare's Birthplace and Visitor Centre for insights into the life of the 'Bard of Avon', before exploring the charming cobblestone streets of his hometown. Carry on to the ancient cathedral city of York where we will enjoy an orientation walk to view its ancient city walls, picturesque Shambles and magnificent 800-year-old Minster. Join your Travel Director and fellow travel companions this evening for a memorable Welcome Reception and delicious local pub fare. (WR) Stay: Holiday Inn
2 York - Durham - Edinburgh (2 Nights)
We venture north to the medieval riverside town of Durham, whose exquisite 11th-century Durham Cathedral sits imposingly alongside Durham Castle watching over the medieval streets below. We cross what was once the northern frontier of the Roman Empire, Hadrian's Wall, before enjoying a scenic drive through the soul-stirring landscapes of Northumberland National Park. Admire spectacular views of the windswept Cheviot Hills as you cross the Scottish border, stopping to admire the 12th-century ruins of Jedburgh Abbey en route to Edinburgh.

See Glencoe, the site of a bloody massacre in 1692 following the Jacobite Uprising, and travel to the "bonnie" banks of Scotland's prettiest loch, Loch Lomond. We arrive in Glasgow this evening where our orientation will take us past St. Mungo's Cathedral and George Square, lined with statues and monuments dedicated to famous British subjects, including Robert Burns and Sir Robert Peel.

As the curtain comes down on a memorable journey through England and Scotland, we enjoy a memorable Farewell Dinner in a local restaurant with our Travel Director and newfound friends. (FB/FD) Stay: Mercure Holland House

Journeying back to London, we visit the UNESCO-listed city of Bath to admire its elegant Georgian façades and the Roman baths from which the city takes its name.

“A most enjoyable trip”
- VIC, Australia Jul 2017 3 Helpful Votes

We had a very interesting trip with pleasant companions, a delightful, diligent guide and a careful bus driver. We enjoyed the tour through England and Scotland with comfortable accommodation and luxurious breakfasts. The stops at historical or picturesque sites were well chosen and we appreciated the information about them from the guide, the relevant 'funnies' and tastings (shortbread, fudge, whisky/ local soft drink) passed around and music related to the area.

“Holiday made easy”
- New Zealand Sep 2016 2 Helpful Votes

We toured Britain for 7 days and straight onto a 6 day European highlights tour thereafter, both with Trafalgar. I would highly recommend travelling with Trafalgar as everything was organised with regular stops along the way, photo opportunities and the tour directors have huge historical knowledge to impart. The accommodation was excellent and locations good and breakfasts to suit every taste, even gluten free! Global Journey's organised all the bookings, transfers and gratuities online and communicated...read more

“Highly recommend :)”
- NSW, Australia Aug 2015 1 Helpful Vote

We had a great time, saw some amazing sights & met some wonderful people. The city & the countryside were equally awe inspiring. While we saw a great many things in a small space of time we still managed to have some down time too. Highly recommend :)

“Would not hesitate to go on another tour”
- Australia Sep 2014 1 Helpful Vote

The tour was really enjoyable. The Tour guide (James Payne) and the coach driver (Paul) were great. James went out of his way to make sure that we experienced everything about each stop on the way, and things were very well organized. He was very passionate about his county and made things interesting and at the same time fun. We would not hesitate to go on another tour in the future.

“Tour was exactly what we expected”
- Australia Jul 2013 2 Helpful Votes

The tour was exactly what we expected, the driver and tour guide were very efficient and helpful. The only complaint some of the hotels were not equipped for the heat we encountered particularly in Scotland also many of the hotels Wi-Fi was an extra charge in this day and age this should be standard. We would certainly consider using Global Journeys as we found them very reliable and would recommend them to any travellers.
