Tour the Palace House, Abbey ruins, and visit his lordship's collection of cars in the National Motor Museum. Travel on to Salisbury to see the tallest spire in the land atop the 13th century cathedral. Discover over 750 years of history during your cathedral visit, and see the world's best preserved original copy of the Magna Carta.

Day 6 Winchester, Avebury and Shakespeare’s Stratford

Visit the cathedral town of Winchester, where King Alfred stands guard in the High Street. The country roads of Wiltshire lead you past pretty villages to Avebury, which is partially situated in a huge prehistoric henge monument of several stone circles. Wander among the stones of the inner circles and the great outer circle and witness the immense bank and ditch. Next, continue on to pretty Stratford, beautifully situated on the River Avon. Your hotel is set in its own grounds, just a short walk from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and the town's wealth of black and white timber framed buildings. In the evening, you are offered a fine selection of restaurants for your Dine Around Evening.(FB / DA)

Day 7 Blenheim and the Villages of the Cotswolds Experience

Tour the magnificent house and gardens of Blenheim Palace, the greatest building of the English Baroque. Return to Stratford for a look through the birthplace of William Shakespeare, full of interesting memorabilia and artefacts relating to his life. Later, join your Tour Director for a traditional Sunday Roast Dinner, washed down with a pint of local beer or two.(FB / RD)

Cross the border to the small Welsh town of Llangollen. Situated on the River Dee and seeped in myth and legend, spend time exploring the Victoria Promenade and its delightful shops and cafés.

Day 9 English Poets and the Lake District Experience

(Relaxed Start) Devote the day to a scenic wonderland of rugged mountains and tranquil waters - an inspiration to a host of English poets.

Follow the Royal Mile to Holyrood Palace where Mary Queen of Scots lived. Drive along Princes Street, past the ornate Scott Memorial, to the 18th century ‘New Town’ with its classical Adam facades. In the evening enjoy a fresh and tasty dinner, “like a Highland breeze wafting up your kilt”.(FB / RD)

Later in the evening, raise your glass with friends at your finalé Celebration Dinner.(FB / CD)
