You can also enjoy the scene of Tower Bridge and Tower of London while sitting in the coach. The Tower of London is a historic castle located on the north bank of the River Thames in central London. It has played a prominent role in English history and served variously as a palace, an armoury, a treasury, a prison, the home of the Royal Mint, the home of the Crown Jewels of England and has been the setting of many bloody battles among British Monarchs. You stay overnight in London, where you can experience the dazzling night scene, or head for a Thames Cruise or musical with a group of friends

DAY 4 - Monday

After breakfast, it is time to visit the nation’s acclaimed educational institution: Cambridge University. In addition to a strong academic atmosphere, Cambridge is where many luminaries started their dreams and hopes for the future with the sight of the pastoral landscapes, picturesque rivers and architecture. The University of Cambridge, a majestic old group of buildings including King’s College and Queens College, set among the most rural of bridges.

You continue your journey to York, a true medieval melting pot of Roman, Saxon and Viking culture. The city is mostly intact from the middle ages and shows the rustic side of Britain. You visit York Minster, the largest Gothic cathedral in northern Europe. Then you will step up onto York city walls, dating back to Roman times. For those keen to discover little grass-roots shops, there will be time to wander around.

After leaving York, Edinburgh is next on our places to visit. You are expected to arrive in Edinburgh in the afternoon. Edinburgh is Scotland’s compact, hilly capital. It represents the best in Scottish heritage.

On the way, you stop in Gretna Green, a village in the south of Scotland famous for ‘runaway marriages’, a custom which began in 1754. Due to its romantic wedding traditions dating back centuries, Gretna Green is one of the world’s most popular wedding locations. After that you continue your journey to the Lake District. The Lake District National Park is the most visited national park in the United Kingdom. Each year tens of thousands of visitors travel here to see the thousands of years old geological changes reflected in the natural beauty, lakes, valleys, mountains and waterfalls. You can choose our optional boat cruise of Lake Windermere, or hop off to the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction.

From then onwards you drive to Manchester, a fashionable, social buzzing and dynamic city. This city is not only well-known for being a city of sport, the headquarters of Manchester United, but also as England’s most productive industrial city. Football fans can enjoy a pilgrimage to the Manchester United Old Trafford grounds or catch a training game. Food lovers can pick a scrumptious restaurant in the nearby Chinatown.

A breath-taking drive will take you to the famous English playwright and poet William Shakespeare’s hometown, Stratford-upon-Avon.
