1 London – Stonehenge – Bath – Cardiff
Experience first-hand what's "great" about Great Britain on this mesmerising sojourn past the peaks of Wales and the rolling hills and lush farmlands of England to "bonnie" Scotland. We kick-start our adventure in the cosmopolitan capital of London, heading west to Stonehenge's stone monoliths, whose centuries-old myths have yet to be fully revealed. The elegant Georgian architecture of Bath takes centre stage during our visit to this famous spa town. Here, we'll see the Abbey and visit the Roman Baths, before crossing the Severn Estuary to Cardiff. Delve into the proud culture and heritage of the Welsh as you embark on an orientation of the city to see the Principality Stadium and Cardiff Castle, in the heart of the city. Tonight, we celebrate the beginning of an epic adventure through Britain at a Welcome Reception. (WR) Stay: Park Inn City Centre
2 Cardiff – Ludlow – Liverpool
The half-timbered Tudor houses of Ludlow feature today on our exploration of this market town with its medieval walls and historic castle. We journey north through the Shropshire Hills and Cheshire landscapes to the bold British city of Liverpool, hometown of the'Fab Four'. Saunter through its edgy Scouse streets and perhaps visit The Cavern Club, where The Beatles once played, on your evening at leisure. (B) Stay: Jurys Inn
3 Liverpool – Lake District – Gretna Green – Edinburgh
The enchanting views of Britain's Lake District provide a scenic backdrop for our leisurely drive north to Scotland. Skirt the romantic shores of Lake Windermere and enjoy views that inspired literary greats like William Wordsworth. We stop at the runaway wedding capital that is Gretna Green where "Blacksmith Priests" would marry couples over the Marriage Anvil. Later, we arrive in enchanting Edinburgh - our home for the next two nights. (B) Stay Two Nights: Leonardo Royal Haymarket
4 Edinburgh Sightseeing and Free Time
Ramble up the Royal Mile in the mesmerising medieval city of Edinburgh, where you'll join a Local Specialist on an included city sightseeing tour. Stroll through the Old Town and view Arthur's Seat and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, for centuries the seat of the kings and queens of the Scots. Visit Edinburgh Castle perched atop Castle Rock overlooking the city. Spend the rest of the day exploring Auld Reekie's medieval relics and elegant Georgian and Gothic façades on your own, or join your Travel Director on an Optional Experience to visit the Royal Yacht Britannia. This evening, consider attending a lively Scottish banquet with traditional haggis and bagpipes. (B)
5 Edinburgh – Hadrian’s Wall – York
Trace the northern frontier of the Roman Empire at Hadrian's Wall before crossing the River Tyne and venturing south to the ancient cathedral city of York, whose origins hark back to Roman times. Walk along the famous Shambles and view the York Minster, one of the greatest cathedrals in the world. This evening we'Connect With Locals', joining a family in York for a home-cooked Be My Guest Farewell Dinner and some hearty British hospitality. (B/BMG) Stay: Holiday Inn
6 York – Stratford-upon-Avon – London
Delve into the fascinating story of Shakespeare's life at his Birthplace and Visitor Centre in Stratford-upon-Avon, and view Anne Hathaway's thatched cottage. We return to London this evening where our memorable encounter with Britain's icons comes to an end. (B)

“Beautiful Britain”
- QLD, Australia Jan 2019 2 Helpful Votes

Great trip, covered a lot in a short period therefore very fast paced. Would have been nice to spend more time in some places to explore. Taking this trip in summer when it is warmer and longer daylight would be a plus but overall great tour.

“UK Tour”
- WA, Australia Mar 2018

The UK Tour was good but more towns in each country should be offered. What really made the holiday good for me was Kate Allen (Guide) and the bus driver Terry. They really work well together and tried to make sure everyone was enjoying themselves....read more

“A taste of Britain”
- NSW, Australia Dec 2015 View Photo

The tour took in many interesting and amazing sites of Britain. The sites were interesting as well as the background information supplied by the guide. The pace was constant and the group worked well to ensure we stayed on timetable. The drivers were very skilled winding the large coach through streets that were designed for horse and cart travel. The only issue was how quick the sun disappeared in the winter afternoons.

“From start to finish the tour was simply amazing”
- Australia Jan 2012 2 Helpful Votes

This was the first guided tour we had ever been on. We usually just plan our own activities and go where we want to. From start to finish the tour was simply amazing. Everything was organised for us, and we got to see way more in one day than we could ever organise ourselves. We saw so much of England in 6 days it was amazing. We will definitely be travelling with Trafalgar again. The tour director and driver were amazing guys who made everything fun and educational. Hotels and food included was...read more
