Day 1: London – Cambridge – York
At St Pancras Railway Station, we will begin our enchanting UK tour, where we will introduce ourselves to the rest of the group and leave London to visit one of the most prestigious educational institutions in England: Cambridge University, including King’s College and Queen ‘s College, among many other world-famous colleges.
We will go to York, a true medieval melting pot of Roman, Saxon and Viking heritage, after exploring this historic region. Still preserved from the Middle Ages, the town is emblematic of the more bucolic side of England. We’ll visit York Minster, northern Europe’s largest Gothic cathedral. Then we will walk on the walls of the city of York, dating back to Roman times.
Day 2: York – Edinburgh – Glasgow
We will cross the border into Scotland today and visit the compact but interesting capital of the world, Edinburgh, the ideal representation of Scottish heritage. Gold single malt whiskey wooden barrows, checked kilts and Scottish bagpipes can make you grow fond of this vibrant nation full of quirky characters.
A visit to Edinburgh Castle (admission not included) is first on the list, where we can admire the oldest royal crown and jewels. We’ll go down the Royal Mile from here to Holyrood Palace, City Hall and the Royal Parks. You can also choose to join us to enjoy a cup of coffee (own cost) for a visit to JK Rowling’s Ivory Cafe, where Harry Potter was penned.
In Glasgow or a neighboring area, accommodation for the evening is open.
Day 3: Glasgow – Gretna Green – Lake District – Manchester
We’ll head back over the border to the northwest of England in the morning. We’ll head straight to the Lake District, and we’ll make a stop on the way to Gretna Green, a village popular for ‘runaway marriages’ dating back to 1754 in the south of Scotland.
The Lake District National Park, the most popular and most visited national park in England, is a picturesque landscape of rolling hills, scenic lakes, and beautiful foliage. Every year, tens of thousands of visitors travel to the lakes , rivers, mountains, and waterfalls to see thousands of years of geological changes. You can choose to take a Lake Windermere cruise (own expense), or jump off at the Beatrix Potter World.
The day will end with a drive to Manchester, the headquarters of Manchester United, and the most industrialized city in England. A pilgrimage to the Manchester United Old Trafford grounds can be enjoyed by football fans.
Day 4: Manchester – Stratford-Upon-Avon – Bicester Village – London
We will take a stunning drive from Manchester to the birthplace of the famous English playwright William Shakespeare, Stratford-Upon-Avon. All has to do with Shakespeare-a heavenly location for the romantically inclined-from the cobblestone streets to the drinking dens, theatres and road signs.
The Bicester Village outlet shopping center, home to over 130 luxury and lifestyle boutiques, including Gucci, Armani, Prada, Calvin Klein, Dunhill, DKNY, Burberry, Paul Smith, Bally, and Clark’s, is the most awaited outing of the day, offering discounts of up to 60% year round.
