With a scenic drive to Calais, we'll kick things off. Our coach will either cross the English Channel by ferry or arrive at Port of Dover via Eurotunnel. Enjoy driving through the beautiful countryside of England on the way to London.
We will start our exciting UK tour with a walking tour of the major attractions of London (only outside): Big Ben, Parliament House, Westminster Abbey, 10 Downing Street, Whitehall, St James Park, Buckingham Palace and River Thames.

We will proceed from there to York, a true medieval melting pot of the heritage of Roman, Saxon and Viking. The city, mostly intact from the Middle Ages, is symbolic of the more bucolic side of England. We're going to visit York Minster, Northern Europe's largest gothic cathedral. We will then step up on the walls of York City, dating back to Roman times.
There will be plenty of time to explore for those interested in discovering the little grass-roots shops.
