    Dinner/Overnight— Castle Hotel Windsor MGallery, Windsor 
  • Day 2 Oxford & Stratford After breakfast you will drive on to the ‘city of dreaming spires’, Oxford, where you will have a walking tour of this famous university city and visit Merton College or New College. You will then drive on to Stratford upon Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare. Here you will visit Shakespeare’s Birthplace.

    Overnight— Doubletree by Hilton, Stratford-upon-Avon
  • Day 3 York After breakfast you will drive north to Yorkshire and on to York. Your guide will take you on a walking tour of this historic city, renowned for its exquisite architecture and tangle of quaint cobbled streets known as ‘The Shambles’. You will also visit the iconic York Minster, one of the great cathedrals of the world.

    Dinner/Overnight— Indigo Hotel, York 
  • Day 4 Liverpool & Chester After breakfast you will drive to Liverpool, birthplace of The Beatles, where you will discover the greatness of this trading city on a panoramic tour. Liverpool was founded on the cotton and slave trade with highlights such as stunning Victorian architecture, the Northern Tate Modern Art Gallery, the famed ferry across the Mersey River and the restored Albert Docks. You will have some free time for lunch in Liverpool before driving on to visit historical Chester where your guide will give you a short panoramic tour of this Roman city. You will then drive on to North Wales.

    Dinner/Overnight—St. George's Hotel, Llandudno 
  • Day 5 Snowdonia Today enjoy a stunning visit to Snowdonia National Park. The Park is dominated by Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, and is characterized by rugged scenery and breathtaking views. Your tour will also include a ride on the Ffestiniog Railway, a narrow-gauge railway which takes a scenic 13.5-mile route from Porthmadog Harbour to the mountains and slate-quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. You will also visit Conwy Castle, a gritty dark stoned fortress commanding a rock above the Conwy Estuary.

    Overnight—St. George's Hotel, Llandudno 
  • Day 6 Ludlow & Cardiff Today you will drive to South Wales and en route will have a lunch stop and free time at the historic market town of Ludlow. Perched on a cliff above the River Teme, Ludlow is surrounded by the unspoilt and beautiful hilly countryside of south Shropshire and the Welsh border country. The town came to existence when Ludlow Castle was started in 1086 and the medieval town walls were built shortly after. The town has over 450 listed buildings. You will then drive to the Welsh capital, Cardiff. In the evening you will attend the Spirit of Wales, an evening of Welsh culture and humour in the Welsh Millennium Centre, an iconic building in the fashionable Cardiff Bay area. After a welcome reception with Mead and Welsh nibbles, enjoy a first class meal with wine, including seasonable Welsh specialties.
