Experience quintessential England with its villages from yesteryear, regal estates and inspiring Georgian architecture, plus exhilarating London. This 10-night program loops around South West England with stays in Bath, Falmouth, Exeter and London.

Begin in Bath, a living museum with sacred Roman spas. Peek into the lives of England’s elite at the glorious Stourhead and Longleat estates; then marvel at Mother Nature’s grandiosity at the Bedruthan Steps. A visit to St. Ives offers a taste of Mediterranean Europe. And, you’ll learn about the region’s celebrated nautical history at museums in Plymouth and Falmouth.

Inside Salisbury’s 13th-century cathedral, witness one of the four original copies of the Magna Carta, and take a walking tour of Exeter, once a thriving port city before wrapping up your adventure in dynamic London. Along the way, local guides and experts provide fascinating insight during included excursions and talks. This small-group experience features first-class accommodations and an extensive meal plan including wine with dinner.
