Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive in London

Transport – Executive Vehicle & Private Chauffeur

Dinner Reservation – Cheneston’s Restaurant

Upon touching down at Heathrow Airport, your Luxury England Tours representative will be waiting to welcome you to England and whisk you off to your hotel for the next three nights, The Milestone Hotel in the prestigious Kensington.

Sitting just yards away from Kensington Palace and enjoying majestic views across the gardens, The Milestone is a 5-star hotel which radiates sophistication and prides itself on ensuring each and every guest is looked after like royalty.

After a day of travelling, you will have time to settle in and chill out before heading for dinner reservations in the hotel’s Cheneston’s Restaurant. Opulent surroundings and a highly prized kitchen team combine to deliver a dining experience that is hard to match anywhere in the country.
Then simply sleep well before your first day of touring begins!

Day 2Full day walking tour of London (Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament, London Eye, Tate Modern, Borough Market, London Bridge, The Shard, Tower Bridge, Tower of London

Accommodation – The Milestone Hotel, London
Dinner Reservation – The Builder’s Arms

Ensure you make the most of The Milestone’s delicious breakfast as to kick things off today you are embarking on an extensive walking tour of London’s most famous landmarks.
You won’t be able to go inside at the stops, due to the length of the tour, however you will pass by the crème de la crème of London’s tourist attractions, including the London Eye, Tate Modern, Borough Market, London Bridge, The Shard, Tower Bridge, Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, and the Houses of Parliament.

After a busy day you will no doubt be hungry for a hearty meal, so tonight you will be dining in The Builder’s Arms, a traditional English pub with bucket loads of charm. Refuel your body with handmade Scotch eggs, chicken, smoked ham hock and leek pie, and strawberry amaretti Eton mess.

Day 3Buckingham Palace, Private Cruise on River Thames

Accommodation – The Milestone Hotel, London
Transport – Executive Vehicle & Private Chauffeur
Dinner Reservation – Macellaio RC

The Royal Family are at the centre of British cultural and political life and their royal residence, Buckingham Palace, is known the world over, so what better place to start day three. The grandeur of the building and the ceremony of the Royal Guard parading up and down will live long in the memory.

You will then head out on a private cruise along the river Thames. You will get to see London’s famous skyline from a unique perspective before tucking into a lunch on your own private island, Woods Quay. Where better to enjoy some freshly caught, grilled seafood.

Dinner reservations tonight are at Macellaio RC, a renowned Italian restaurant serving up Fassona beef steak tartare, king prawn tagliatelle, and, of course, tiramisu. From there you will retire to The Milestone.

Day 4Windsor Castle, Sailsbury, Stonehenge

Accommodation – The Royal Crescent Hotel and Spa, Bath (2 Nights)
Transport – Executive Vehicle & Private Chauffeur
Dinner Reservation – Dower House Restaurant

Day four continues the Royal theme with a visit to Windsor Castle. Construction was ordered in the 11th century by William the Conqueror and its huge size and key position near the Thames emphasise how important Windsor was as a strategically defensive site.

You will then spend some time in the town of Salisbury where you can shop in unique boutique craft stores and pay a visit to the stunning centrepiece, Salisbury Cathedral. Be sure to stop by the Charter Market if you’re there on a Tuesday or Saturday.

Castles and cathedrals may be one thing, but in terms of man-made structures, your next stop at Stonehenge is truly extraordinary. This world-famous collection of huge stone monuments was built over 4,000 years ago, leaving one marvelling at the creativity and determination of those who created such a thing of beauty with just basic tools.

This evening you will be staying at The Royal Crescent Hotel and Spa, a masterful architectural triumph in its own right. Dinner reservations will be made in the hotel’s Dower House Restaurant, which has 3 AA Rosettes to its name and where you can expect fine dining of the highest order.

Day 5The Bridgerton Experience Private Tour (Walking Tour of Bath), Roman Baths

Accommodation – The Royal Crescent Hotel and Spa, Bath
Transport – Executive Vehicle & Private Chauffeur
Dinner Reservation – The Olive Tree Restaurant

Fans of the hit tv show Bridgerton are in for a special treat as day five begins with a bespoke Bridgerton experience – private walking tour of Bath. Your tour begins in the churchyard of Bath Abbey, before moving through several key filming locations. Your tour guide will be on hand talking you through each site and answering any questions you may have.

Bath is famous as a city founded by the Romans, and the Romans loved nothing more than building elaborate bath houses wherever they went. Thus, no visit is complete without stopping by Bath’s mightily impressive Roman Baths. One can’t help but imagine picturing the scene from thousands of years ago when the city’s elite would have relaxed and socialised here.

You will be staying in the Royal Crescent again this evening, however you will be dining at The Olive Tree Restaurant. Awarded Bath’s only Michelin Star in 2018, The Olive Tree continues to wow guests with dishes that are presented like artwork.

Day six begins with a leisurely drive through the Cotswolds, a marvellous landscape of low, rolling hills, winding rivers, deep woods, and the most charming little villages. The fact that it has been classed as an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty simply speaks for itself. Keep an eye to the sky for a sighting of Kestrels or Sparrowhawks out hunting.

You will then stop in two of the Cotswolds most famous towns. First up is Chipping Camden where you can find St James’ church and the ancient High Street which dates back to the 14th century. Fans of arts and crafts will want to head to The Old Silk Mill, where a group of craftspeople have established a lively and creative co-operative.

From there you will head to Bibury. Locals and visitors alike regularly agree that Bibury is the gem in the Cotswolds crown owing to its understated yet unmistakable character and beauty. On the banks of the river Coln sits Arlington Row, a small group of cottages built in 1380 which are so pretty that Henry Ford tried to buy them to ship them to America! Thankfully, common sense prevailed, and they remain here for you to enjoy.

Ellenborough Park Hotel is where you will rest your head tonight. But before that you will be dining in the hotel’s wood-panelled restaurant. With a full vegan menu including soy glazed tofu and tomato risotto, as well as an extensive menu, there will be something for everyone.

Accommodation – Ellenborough Park Hotel, Cheltenham, Cotswolds

You will learn about Oxford’s famous residents of past and present while winding through the historic streets that are littered with landmarks such as the Bridge of Sighs, The Sheldonian Theatre, and the Emperor’s Heads.

From Oxford you will be taken to Blenheim Palace. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is an exceptional example of Baroque architecture in England and was the birthplace of charismatic British Prime Minster Sir Winston Churchill. With many grand rooms to explore, colourful gardens, and even a miniature train there is plenty to see and do at Blenheim Palace.

You are then in for a special treat as you set off on a VIP Land Rover Tour of Hawkstone Park. You will be in safe hands as your experienced driver negotiates the tricky terrain, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in this unforgettable journey.

Speaking of unforgettable, you are unlikely to forget your accommodation for the evening in a hurry; Peckforton Castle. Surrounded by dense forest, this grade-1 listed building is as romantic a setting as one could possibly hope for. With a portcullis at the entrance, suits of armour, and huge four-poster beds, you will feel as if you’ve fallen into a fairy tale when you arrive at Peckforton Castle.

John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr formed the band in Liverpool in 1960 and are now widely recognised as the most influential band in history.

Your knowledgeable guide will take you on a taxi trip through Liverpool, retelling the history of the band from beginning to end. You will also stop off at many iconic spots such as the band members childhood homes, Penny Lane, Strawberry Field, and Eleanor Rigby’s grave.

After the tour you will be taken to Linthwaite House, your accommodation for the evening. Why not stick on some classic Beatles hits while getting ready for dinner at Henrock. Henrock’s takes the use of local produce very seriously and even has its own farm in the nearby Cartmel Valley. Marinated Loch Duart salmon, parmesan crusted loin of cod, stuffed breast of Goosnargh Guinea Hen, and chocolate coffee whisky tonka are just some of the delicacies on offer.

You will also be provided with a selection of drinks and snacks during your cruise.

Do you believe in ghost stories, or think they’re a load of nonsense? Either way, your resolve will be put to the test as you visit Muncaster Castle, the most haunted place in Britain. Legend has it that many ghosts haunt the castle and grounds, with countless tales of strange occurrences being told over the years. If you’re brave enough, stop by the Tapestry Room, the most haunted in the castle.

If you’re looking for a gift for loved ones back home, why not pick up some gingerbread or a “Love Grasmere” gift box from Grasmere Gingerbread Shop.

Day eleven begins with a trip to Lowther Castle and Gardens, which has an interesting history. Built in 1806, it was a grand castle with hundreds of rooms. Yet in 1957 much of the castle was demolished and left to ruin for over 50 years. Now, however, the remaining outer walls retain an undeniable charm. There are also magnificent gardens, an adventure playground for kids, and an exhibition telling the story of this unique castle.

From there you will be driven to Penrith, an old market town with a vibrant atmosphere and plenty of cafes, pubs, and independent stores.

You will then take a step back in time as you visit the Roman Vindolanda and Hadrian’s Wall. Vindolanda was a Roman Fort and is a crucial archaeological site which has allowed researchers to unearth so much knowledge about the Roman’s activities in England. There is a museum with innumerable treasures, the highlight of which are the Vindolanda Tablets, the oldest example of handwriting in the U.K.

Meanwhile, Hadrian’s Wall was built by the Romans to protect the north-western edge of their empire from the Pictish tribes of Scotland. It stretches across the entire width of England and allowed the Romans to control the movement of people.

After a day filled with castles and forts, tonight you will appropriately be staying in Augill Castle. Surrounded by woodland and finely furnished, Augill Castle is the ideal country retreat.

Dinner will be served in the Castle’s Music Room restaurant.
