England and Wales Tour

» England and Wales Tour - 3 Day Trip from London

''3 Days exploring the heart of England, Shakespeare country, the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, the mountains and Crusader castles of northern Wales and the refined elegance of Chester and Chatsworth House in the heart of the Peak Districts.'

Day 1 Depart from London and make your way to William Shakespeare’s birthplace Stratford on Avon, home to the Tudor thatched cottage and gardens of his wife, Anne Hathaway. You will have time to explore the magnificent village of Stratford and enjoy lunch, before continuing to the World Heritage site of Ironbridge. Set in a stunning forested gorge on the river Severn this historic valley boast the world’s first ever iron bridge and a host of attractions to choose from. It was once described as the most extraordinary district in the world! From here you travel up to the historic Medieval town of Chester for your 2 nights away from London.

Day 2 You will have some spare time in the morning to explore the ancient walls of Chester, the stunning cathedral with a history spanning almost 2000 years, built on an ancient druidic temple site, with the monastic cloisters present today dating from the late 11th century. The cathedral itself is a masterpiece of medieval architecture. In the late morning your day will take you into the heart of northern Wales, with a visit to the picture book medieval castle of Conwy, built by Edward 1 in the late 13th century. You can enjoy lunch here before exploring the dramatic mountain scenery of the Snowdonia National Park including the huge Dinorwic slate quarries, the Pass of Llanberis below Snowdon - Wales' highest peak and historic Trefriw - a spa town since Roman times. You return to Chester in the early evening.

Day 3 Immediately east of Chester lie the beautiful hills of the Peak District with historic spa towns very popular in Victorian times, including the stunning town of Buxton, famous for its mineral waters and its Opera House. From here you will explore some of the National Park and stop for lunch in one of the beautiful little villages. In the afternoon you can visit the famous mansion house and gardens of Chatsworth, home to the Cavendish family, Duke of Devonshire. Chatsworth is often named the UK’s favourite country house and a visit will reveal some of the finest collections of furniture, priceless paintings, Old Master drawings and neo-classical sculptures. Finally you will return to London in the early evening.
