During the London and the English Countryside tour, we'll we'll experience both London: ancient and modern, funky and elegant, the city of royalty, art, theatre, and hip British style, and the fairytale English countryside with its gardens, castles, prehistoric monuments, grazing sheep, tiny Cotswolds villages and hearty pub food.
We'll get to know and love London, as we visit the Tower of London, the British Museum, the Buckingham Palace, the National Gallery and the Westminster Abbey, ride the ultra-modern London Eye, enjoy a West End theatre show and a cruise up the Thames River to visit the dreamy Kew Gardens. We'll enjoy atmospheric English pubs and an elegant afternoon tea, shop for flowers and treasures at neighborhood markets and for the latest fashions at Harrod's.
As we set out to explore the English countryside, we'll visit Stonehenge, Oxford, the Windsor Castle, and the ancient Roman town of Bath, synonymous with Jane Austen's novels, hike in the Cotswolds by picture-book perfect villages, streams and open meadows, and admire a multitude of castles, palaces, manor houses and hunting lodges. But mostly, we'll create lifelong memories as we enjoy international dining, world art and history, and connect with new, like-minded friends.
