Trip Summary
2 nights in London

London offers everything! Iconic landmarks, centuries of history, world-class shopping and achingly cool fashion, arts and food scenes. A 40-minute walk along the South Bank will take you past Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe, St Paul's Cathedral and Tower Bridge. There are eight Royal Parks to explore, and over 300 museums and galleries. It is home to 60 Michelin starred restaurants and fantastic street food. The evenings offer from high-end nightclubs of Chelsea and Mayfair to cool clubs in Soho and Camden. As for theatre, London's legendary West End boasts over 40 world-class theatres.

Visit Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye, Trafalgar Square, Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, the British Museum, Piccadilly Circus and so much more!



2 nights in Stratford-upon-Avon

Arguably the greatest writer in the English language was William Shakespeare, who was born in the market town of Stratford-upon-Avon in 1564. Now a bustling city of over 25,000 people that sees over two million visitors a year, the Stratford of Shakespeare's day was little more than a village. The main attractions within the town include the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and two contemporary buildings, Hall's Croft (the one-time home of Shakespeare's daughter, Susannah) and New Place, the latter built on the site of an earlier house where the playwright died in 1616.


Visit Shakespeare's Birthplace, Anne Hathaway's Cottage, Holy Trinity Church, Stratford Butterfly Farm, Hall's Croft, Tudor World, Shakespeare's Funerary, Shakespeare`s Schoolroom and Guildhall, Shakespeare's New Place, Nash`s House, Charlecote Park, Mary Arden's Farm, The Falstaff's Experience, Gower Memorial, and so much more!



2 nights in Oxford

Oxford is home to the oldest and most prestigious university in the English-speaking world. The architecture of its 38 colleges in the city`s medieval center led poet Matthew Arnold to nickname it the `City of Dreaming Spires`. University College and Magdalen College are off the High Street, which runs from Carfax Tower (with city views) to the Botanic Garden on the River Cherwell. The elegant honey-toned buildings of the university`s colleges, scattered throughout the city, wrap around tranquil courtyards along narrow cobbled lanes, and, inside their grounds, a studious calm reigns.


Visit Oxford Castle, Bodleian Library, Radcliffe Camera, Ashmolean Museum, University Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Carfax Tower, Oxford Botanic Garden, Bridge of Sighs, and so much more!



2 nights in Salisbury

Lying in the valley of the River Avon, Salisbury is one the most beautiful cathedral cities in Britain, built in the 13th century. The main attraction is the Cathedral with the tallest spire in England. It`s 9 miles south of the iconic prehistoric stone circle at Stonehenge, which stands on the grassland of Salisbury Plain. The city`s ornate 13th-century cathedral has a 123m spire, a working 14th-century clock and an original copy of the Magna Carta (the Great Charter), a key document from 1215 A.D. The surrounding countryside has inspired the paintings of Constable and the writings of Thomas Hardy and Izaak Walton.

Visit Salisbury Cathedral, Old Sarum, Salisbury Museum, Mompesson House, Wilton House, Arundells, Stonehenge, Fisherton Mill, The Rifles Berkshire and Wiltshire Museum, St. Thomas`s Church, and so much more!



2 nights in Bath

Founded by Romans around the only naturally-occurring hot springs in the United Kingdom, Bath is one of the most beautiful cities in the UK, and has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Much of the architecture of Bath dates from the 18th century, and the city is famous for its many fine examples of Georgian architecture, most notably the Royal Crescent. Nowadays it is a fashionable spa resort. The waters from its spring are believed to be a cure for many afflictions and to ease rheumatism.

Visit The Roman Baths, Thermae Bath Spa complex, Pulteney Bridge, Bath Abbey, Royal Crescent, The Circus, Prior Park Landscape Garden, Fashion Museum Bath, The Jane Austen Centre, The Holburne Museum, Royal Crescent, Victoria Art Gallery, Royal Victoria Park, and so much more!



2 nights in Plymouth

Located at the mouths of the rivers Plym and Tamar and at the head of one of the world`s largest and most spectacular natural harbors - the Plymouth Sound, Plymouth is a blend of vibrant modern city and historic seafaring port. The main attractions are an authentic Elizabethan house near the Barbican area and between there and the well known Plymouth Hoe is the Citadel, built in the reign of Charles II. The Plymouth Arts Centre offers displays of work by British and international artists.

Visit The South West Coast Path, National Marine Aquarium, Hoe Park, Mount Edgcumbe House, Dartmoor Zoo, Saltram House, Royal William Yard, Smeaton`s Tower, The Box, Plymouth Gin Distillery, Plymouth Arts Centre, Barbican, Citadel, and so much more!



1 nights in Cheltenham

Ever since 1716 when its mineral springs where discovered, Cheltenham has become one of England`s most fashionable spas. As winner of "Beautiful Britain in Bloom", Cheltenham is renowned for its gracious Regency architecture, with lots of ironwork, balconies, and verandas, and also for its colorful parks and floral decorations. It hosts annually the flagship race of British steeplechase horseracing, the Cheltenham Gold Cup and several festivals of culture, principally the annual Cheltenham Festival of Literature.


Explore Sudeley Castle, Pittville Park, Cheltenham Town Hall, Holst Birthplace Museum, Montpellier Gardens, Neptune Fountain, Imperial Gardens, Imperial Square, The Brewery Quarter, Hatherley Park, Winston Churchill Memorial Gardens, and so much more!

England

American travelers cannot get enough of England, and to this day it consistently ranks in the three most popular European countries in terms of visitors per year. Nearly everyone visits London, one of the world`s most important cities and the epicenter of what was once a vast world empire, but England should definitely be explored in-depth, from the charm of the Cotswolds to the seaside resorts on the English Channel and the Irish Sea to the beautiful landscapes of the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the Westcountry. England is a country where the present day and over a millennia of history routinely intersect.
