A Sampling of Bespoke England Experiences
Little Venice, London
In London, take a pedalo across the Thames, explore the Tower of London, and be dazzled by the world’s largest diamond. When it’s time to dine, imagine an eclectic haunt called Little Venice. A water taxi dips into lovely canals and waterways. An elegant seafood restaurant awaits, and after dinner there is fringe comedy at a canal theater or a show at the Puppet Theater Bridge.
Port Isaac, Cornwall
Windsor is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world, and the extraordinary talent of William Shakespeare is around every corner of Stratford-Upon-Avon. Lovely Bath is the town where Roman ruins and Georgian lanes come together in perfect harmony. Mysterious Stonehenge is older than the pyramids, and Wiltshire has iconic prehistoric monuments, picture-perfect villages, and the Salisbury Cathedral with Britain’s tallest spire.
Town of Bath
Cornwall and Devon are in England’s rugged southwestern tip. Cornwall, one of the Celtic Nations, has picturesque villages and the Cornish Riviera. Devon borders Cornwall on the east—both were once ruled by King Arthur. Nearby St. Ives is known for its beaches, British art, and seal colony, and legendary Penzance is complete with a medieval castle and gardens. Follow in the footsteps of Jane Austen all the way to the Jurassic Coast.
Liverpool is the center of pop culture, arts, and the Beatles. On the way to York, discover the Peak District National Park. In the city of York itself, an exploration of the ancient underground shops and homes, Gothic Yorkminster, and the Shambles tell the story of this city, the center of history between Scotland and England. Bristol is energetic and creative.
