Welcome to our tour of England!
Immerse yourself in English culture and history but do it like the locals do!
As we travel together, allow me to show you my favorite parts of England; not just the normal sights, but stunning, hidden and unknown gems off the beaten track that only the 'locals' know about. With ample time to indulge in personal exploration, discover new favorite places and experiences of your own, including sightseeing, museums, markets, shopping or even golf, concluding with spectacular world class events all performed in unforgettable locations.
Flying over the center of London into Heathrow, a luxury minibus will be waiting for us. A short drive into the English countryside leaves London behind as we arrive in England's oldest recorded town; Colchester, our home for the next two weeks, wonderfully steeped in history, and unknown to tourists. Our hotel dates back to the 14th century and combines luxury with the most welcoming staff you will ever encounter. Being centrally located in the old cobbled town makes it an easy walk to everywhere you want to explore.
Most days we venture out to explore beautiful southern England: some days close by, other days further afield. With many visits via train to experience all London has to offer, or in our minibus to Cambridge, Kent, Brighton, Mersea Island and more. So much diversity and beauty that most visitors completely miss; let me introduce you to it all whilst you meet the locals and experience the 'English way of life' like a real Brit!
After each day spent exploring we will gather for dinner in diverse restaurants before attending some of the most desirable and spectacular evening entertainments. From the stunning open air theater in the center of Regents Park, to the old London theaters on Shaftsburry Avenue. Classical music performed by candlelight at St. Martins in the Field in Trafalgar Square, Shakespeare on the lawns of Kings College, Cambridge. Opera at the open air theater within the grounds of Hever Castle, dinner and jazz at the Fleece Jazz club or Ronnie Scott's.....The absolute best, world class performances you will find.
