On this tour to Britain, you’ll also travel to some of the charming towns. In Bath, you’ll explore the excavations of the Roman baths, used over 2,000 years ago for bathing and socializing. In Chester, you’ll enjoy a walking tour of this city famed for its Roman remains, black and white half-timbered buildings, and famous two-tiered arcades. In Liverpool, take a journey into the life of the Beatles. Walk through York’s quaint streets with your Tour Director, who will bring York and all of Britain alive with firsthand, in-depth knowledge throughout your tour. Globus also brings these destinations to life with out-of-the-ordinary experiences—such as a wedding re-enactment at Gretna Green and original Grasmere gingerbread in Grasmere—arranged just for you.

Majestic scenery, fascinating towns, special treats, an expert Tour Director bringing these destinations to life, and so much more are offered on this spectacular escorted Britain vacation. Be sure to grab your camera so all you have to do is sit back and relax as you experience these wonderful destinations.
