Join one of the best tours of England for an all-inclusive look at the most noteworthy destinations and attractions in the United Kingdom and its surrounding islands. The most acclaimed city in England is its capital, London. Here, must-see monuments and attractions, including Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Piccadilly Circus, St. Paul's Cathedral and Buckingham Palace, pair with immense history and culture to create an eclectic atmosphere. London is a fixture on nearly all of our England tours and is a fantastic launching point for trips that continue to cities elsewhere, such as Paris, Amsterdam and Rome.
A vacation in England may venture to charming villages, like the oldest tourist town in the UK, Bath. In Bath, visit the world-famous hot springs and explore sites dating back to medieval times. For a collegiate experience, select a train itinerary that features the university towns of Oxford and Cambridge. Of course, there are many other beautiful cities to visit during a trip to England, including historic York. While you travel through this historic country, enjoy the wonder that accompanies a visit to Stonehenge or experience one of the England castle tours, which could include Alnwick or Bamburgh Castle.
Travel further north in England by train to visit Scotland. Some of the world's most beloved rail lines travel through the scenic Scottish Highlands, including the Jacobite Steam Train that crosses the Glenfinnan Viaduct, featured in the Harry Potter films. England vacation packages may also cross the Irish Sea, allowing visitors to experience the dramatic scenes of Ireland. Travel west for a trip to Wales and to discover its regal castles and historic steam railways. Whether you round out your independent or escorted train holiday with visits to other areas of the United Kingdom or continue your journey abroad on the sleek Eurostar train for an exciting multi-country tour of Europe, England vacation packages are incredibly diverse.
