Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

Shrouded in mysteries as thick and effervescent as the mists that haunt its hillsides, northern England marks the beginning of our expedition to the very heart of Scotland. From energetic Manchester, the epicentre of the industrial revolution, to the placid Lake District, peaceful repose of the Romantic Poets, experience the full range of English life before crossing the border to Scotland. There, rugged crags house ancient structures, including Edinburgh Castle, the site of the crowning jewel in our cross-border trek: The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Feast your eyes upon a one-of-a-kind cultural celebration of everything that makes Scotland such a unique force on the global stage.

Esteemed the world over as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, Manchester is a city brimming with history and charged with a modern progressive vision. This morning we explore the city of Manchester through a panoramic tour, seeing such sights as Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester Town Hall and the prestigious University of Manchester. Following the tour, discover the iconic Science and Industry Museum, a veritable treasure-trove of innovation and invention that epitomizes the spirit of Manchester. (B,L,D)

Escape to England’s Lake District, an idyllic landscape that has left generations of artists in awe. Watch the land come to life before your eyes as we discover picturesque villages nestled between mirrored pools of blue. Nature and civilization converge at Castlerigg. Rising as if from the primordial bedrock of the land itself, this Neolithic stone circle will live in your memories long after we leave. (B,L,D)

EXPLORING THE LAKE DISTRICT

Today we continue our exploration of the unforgettable English Lake District. Beginning at the marvellously grand Lowther Castle and its impeccably restored medieval gardens, we wind our way through the lush countryside to a quaint local pub with a lakeside view. In the afternoon, relax aboard a cruise of Lake Windermere, soaking in the unparalleled natural vistas in the heart of the English countryside. The Lake District served as inspiration for William Wordsworth and the Lake Poets, but words cannot convey the beauty of this land. (B,L,D)

Day 6

GLASGOW, SCOTLAND

As our adventure turns northwards, enter the era of Roman occupation as we pass over Hadrian’s Wall, one of the last vestiges of England’s mythical past. Before you know it, we cross the border into Scotland, a land rich in its own storied culture. Experience Scottish history first-hand at Ayrshire where we tour the cashmere factory of Begg & Co., a leader among the world’s most prestigious fashion houses since 1866. Modern yet ancient, rugged yet beautiful, Scotland defies expectations. It must be seen to be believed. (B,L,D)

Day 10

EDINBURGH’S SURROUNDING AREA

Edinburgh itself provides a rich living tapestry of history, but just beyond the city boundaries lies a further cornucopia of historical gems. In our quest to discover all that Scotland has to offer, follow roads less travelled to the stunning Rosslyn Chapel, a monument to the 15th century carved in stone and glass. In the afternoon, visit Dalmeny House, an enchanting 1817 home on the shores of the Firth of Forth.
