Taste of Britain
Lovers of all things Brit will be drawn to the six-day Taste of Britain trip, heading to all the cultural hot-spots throughout England and Scotland. Starting and departing from London, guests also spend their days exploring Cambridge, York, Liverpool, and Edinburgh. In Stratford-Upon-Avon, they’ll see the Bard’s home in the town where he wrote most of his greatest works. In York, guests explore the old walls of the city and make their way through the quaint narrow streets to York Minster, one of the most beautiful Gothic cathedrals in the world. In their free time, guests can try a traditional Scottish feast of haggis, neeps and tatties in Edinburgh or get their royal fix at Buckingham Palace in London. Other highlights of the trip include a trip to Hadrian’s Wall, sightseeing with a Local Guide in Edinburgh and a visit to Liverpool to see the home of The Beatles.
