We can create themed tours depending on your interests such as to the country homes of great Prime Ministers such as Churchill and Disraeli or to magnificent palaces such as Blenheim or Highclere, scene of television’s Downton Abbey. If medieval England is more to your liking, then tours of many castles are possible such as at Windsor or Warwick, a castle well-suited to combining with a trip to Shakespeare sites at Stratford Upon Avon. We also have an unmatched wealth of beautiful churches and Cathedrals or beautiful cities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Ely and the Roman city of St. Albans with its magnificent Abbey, ancient pubs and markets and Roman ruins. Our history and sites go back much further than that though with Stonehenge being just one of hundreds of prehistoric attractions.
We can arrange your overnight accommodation or alternatively you can stay with us for a specially unique stay in a comfortable but typically English house. We have been hosting tourists on Airbnb with consistently rave reviews as we genuinely enjoying helping people have an enjoyable holiday.
Every visitor is special to us and our prime motivating factor is to give you the best holiday possible. Travel with us and experience good old fashioned English hospitality and see a part of England as different to London as can be imagined.
