Highlights of Britain | 2015/16



This comprehensive journey is tailored to those who want to fully experience British history and culture. In England we celebrate ‘Great British Puddings’ at the world-famous Pudding Club, visit Yorkshire's finest historic house and explore Bronte and Wordsworth country. In north Wales we wind our way through the hidden valleys of Snowdonia National Park and in southern Scotland we visit mysterious castles and stately homes.


The Back-Roads Difference

  • Visit a traditional 18th century Cotswold woollen mill
  • See one of England’s quietest but most interesting cathedrals in Worcester
  • Explore the back roads of some of Britain’s most iconic regions including the Cotswolds, Snowdonia National Park, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District
  • Enjoy a traditional Scottish banquet

A Tour For All Seasons

Britain is a year round destination so why not discover the highlights of England, Wales and Scotland when there are fewer visitors around? During the festive season this tour will visit York’s bustling Christmas market and Castle Howard, which is decked out in Christmas decorations personally chosen each year by the Honourable Simon and Mrs Howard. At the end of each day, relax by the fire in one of Britain’s traditional pubs, as you enjoy hearty food and tasty beers.
