Top Places To Tour in England
A country full of history, natural wonders, and top-rated attractions, England offers a wide array of activities and pursuits for all ages. Guided tours through England's most notable cities and counties can assure that visitors get the most out of their stay.
London is a city of historical landmarks, cultural centers, shopping, vibrant nightlife and various entertainment venues for everyone. It is also a great starting point for touring the rest of England, from seaside to countryside.
Stratford-upon-Avon is one of the country's top places to visit. The
birthplace of William Shakespeare, located on the Avon River, it's home
to the Royal Shakespeare Company and Theatre. Stratford also has country
gardens and homes nearby open to visitors.
The town of Bristol's attractions include the world's first oceanliner, the Clifton Suspension Bridge located on the cliffs of the Avon Gorge, and the Bristol Zoo Gardens, the world's fifth oldest zoo.
York hosts the National Railway Museum, countryside castles and gardens, and lavender fields to delight the senses. York also hosts numerous ghost tours and stories of hauntings for a different kind of thrill.
Bath is a destination to relax in the style of Roman decadence. Home to hot springs, the Roman Baths were built as a temple and bathing complex. In the summer, the exhibit is open late and tours are conducted by torchlight. The Royal Crescent and the Circus are landmark architecture sites that helped Bath become a World Heritage site. The Jane Austen Centre provides a look at Regency times with rooftop tea rooms. The Thermae Bath Spa offers visitors the opportunity to experience the hot springs themselves, a welcome break during or after sightseeing.
Kent, England's oldest county, is known as the Garden of England. Along beautiful coastline in southeast England, Kent is home to both Cantebury and Leeds Castles as well as the White Cliffs of Dover. Many beaches add to the attractions and are great for outdoor activities.
Cornwall is another great destination for activities for both old and young. Cornwall is home to the National Maritime Museum, the National Seal Sanctuary, and several adventure parks. Cornwall activities can range from birdwatching to adventurous watersports.
The Lake District offers everything for history buffs and outdoor
enthusiats alike. Part of the National Parks system, there are endless
places to explore on foot or by bicycle. Lovers of history can travel
down a 2000 year old Roman road, visit Roman ruins, stone circles, and
old mills and mines. The scenery can be a tour itself, as you simply

There’s also a wealth of ancient cities such as nearby Glastonbury where King Arthur is buried, the Roman settlement of Bath and picturesque Salisbury with its world famous cathedral.

We have a large selection of England tours. Focus on spending all your time in London or perhaps hop on a train and enjoy Paris or Amsterdam for a few days.
Take a tour of Northern or Southern England, and if you have the time, combine travel to Scotland, Wales and Ireland as well. There are several itineraries that cater to families traveling to England.
England can be damp and rainy. We suggest clients travel in May, June and October if possible. If you want to visit the gardens at their peak, then the end of March and early April is the best time. Winter travel, which is considered to be November through March, is cheaper than traveling in the summer months, but of course you will experience a little colder weather.
