Greenwich in London is a splendid stretch of green with rose gardens and chestnut trees. Here you will find Queens Hall, the Royal Observatory, and the Cutty Sark Museum. A restored (£25 million) tea clipper ship, the Cutty Sark was one of the last to sail between England and China. Visit Leeds Castle, the “loveliest castle in the world.” Walk the maze of 2,400 perfectly-pruned yews and the underground grotto carved with macabre beasts. The castle has been lovely since 1086.

York is an extraordinary centre of cultural and historical wealth. Crypts and cafés, minsters and museums, ghosts and galleries draw York’s picture. A city overloaded with spectacular stonework, York tucks gems into narrow alleyways – like the Wall of Pots display in the York City Art Gallery.

Vibrant Edinburgh, one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, is a loud and humble place packed with high culture. Above its rocky slopes, you’ll find Edinburgh Castle, a stirring highlight! South of Edinburgh, we’ll visit enigmatic Rosslyn Chapel, made famous in Dan Brown’s novel The Da Vinci Code. Ornate carvings of pagan ‘Green Men,’ Nordic dragons, Egyptian camels, and New World maize lead some to believe that Rosslyn Chapel is a secret Knights Templar repository. Could the vaults beneath hold the Holy Grail, sacred scrolls – even the body of Christ?

 

Discover York

Magnificent medieval York was founded on Roman and Viking legacy. The 13th-century stone walls and streets of England’s “Capital of the North” support shopping extravagance (The Shambles) and architectural grandeur (York Minster).

The Shambles: The Saxon word shamel, means slaughterhouse.
In 1862, 26 butcher shops on this row inspired its name. Today 15th-century Tudor buildings with steep overhangs replace meat shops, making The Shambles the most picturesque shopping gate in Britain – not to be missed!

York Minster Cathedral, a Gothic masterpiece, was once a simple wooden chapel built in 627AD. The intricate stone and glass work of today’s immense structure began in the 1200s, embracing different architectural elements throughout the centuries.

The Bar Walls: Around York, 3.4kms of masonry provide an elevated view of the city within and without. The longest town walls in England, they were built in the 13th century of magnesian limestone, set on earthen ramparts, and surrounded by moats. Scan QR codes along the walls for interesting tidbits.
