England

Reach beneath the surface, into the deep heritage and fascinating history of this mighty, small island

England is only a small dot on the world map yet, yet no other country has had such a profound effect on world destiny. An escorted tour is one of the best ways of understanding the heritage and history of this immensely varied and culturally wealthy country.

Stand with your back to a 300 year old, Jacobean mansion and survey the rolling gardens laid out by a landscape gardener with the vision of Capability Brown. You will instantly realize that you’re seeing a picture postcard, quintessential England. Especially on a fine summer’s evening, with the soft light picking out the whites of the fielders engrossed in a distant game of cricket on the green lawns.

Take an escorted tour to some of England’s myriad of stately homes, castles and estates and you’ll discover the stories behind the fabulous wealth that built the houses. The war-like barons who built mighty power-bases founded on impenetrable castles, and conspired together to seize the crown of England. The great factory owners of the industrial revolution, who changed the world with their thundering engines and mechanised production techniques – and built serene mansions on the profits of their ‘dark, satanic mills’.

On an escorted tour you will be enlightened by visits to the world-famous seats of learning in ancient university towns. You’ll be guided through magnificent galleries by art experts and curators. You’ll be given the inside track in renowned institutions like Newmarket’s National Stud. In short, you will receive a privileged glimpse into the diversity that makes Britain great.
