On this wide-ranging 14-day small group tour you travel from gracious Edinburgh to England’s legendary Lake District, from spectacular Snowdonia to the rural Cotswolds and Roman Bath, ending in cosmopolitan London.  Arriving in Edinburgh, visit Edinburgh Castle, encounter the Royal Mile and Holyrood, and have time for independent exploration.*  Traveling on to the beautiful Lake District, stop William Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage, and Hill Top, the 17th-century farmhouse of Beatrix Potter of The Tale of Peter Rabbit fame.

Reaching Wales, visit 13th-century Caernarfon Castle, and Snowdonia National Park.  Continuing in England, your exploration includes Shakespeare’s Birthplace and Anne Hathaway’s Cottage in Stratford-upon-Avon.  See Bath’s historic Roman Baths, the Jane Austen Centre, and the Cotswolds before traveling to London, with a visit of Stonehenge en route.  In London, your panoramic city tour passes many of the city’s celebrated landmarks.  Enjoy more time in London with an optional 3-day/2-night post-tour extension.
