Join us to explore the undiscovered destinations of Britain by travelling to off-the-cobblestones locales to experience the authentic, timeless traditions of Britain. Begin in London for some historical sightseeing before venturing on to Stonehenge for an up-close view of the mysterious stone formations. You'll drive through magnificent scenery to Cornwall-a film location for the series Poldark. In Plymouth, see the Mayflower Steps where the Pilgrim Fathers embarked for America in 1620. Cross the wild moorlands and deep river valleys into Dartmoor for an opportunity to join the locals in a cozy tearooms or friendly pubs in the village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor. Dip into history with a visit to Bath's excavated Roman Baths-the grand socializing complex circa 70AD. Stay overnight in the Welsh capital of Cardiff, and travel to Cotswolds. Take in its picturesque villages and rolling hills on your way to Stratford-upon-Avon-historic home to William Shakespeare.

Birthplace of Charles Darwin and one of England's finest medieval towns, Shrewsbury is located in the glorious countryside near the Welsh border. Next, visit The Beatles Story in Liverpool, then travel further back in time to England's Lake District aboard a steam railway train. From your carriage, savour the lovely views of the Levens Valley, and continue you journey on a Windermere Steamer cruise boat to Bowness. You'll stay overnight in Gretna Green-where the blacksmith was known to wed young runaway couples-still a popular wedding venue since the 1700s. Follow the "bonnie banks" of Loch Lomond and the wild Rannoch Moor into the Scottish Highlands. Try to catch a glimpse of "Nessie" in Loch Ness, and hear about the famous battle of Culloden before spending the night in Inverness-the beautiful Highland capital. See St. Andrews, home of golf and tour Edinburgh Castle to admire the Crown Jewels.
