WHAT YOU’LL DO

You may fly into London, but there's no better way to experience it than by foot. In a land rich with history, natural beauty and the contrast of past and present, spend eight days on a guided walking tour through the city and its picturesque countryside. From Cotswold to London proper, experience England at ground level - where true experience lies.

Arrive at the tranquil Charingworth Manor Hotel to prepare for the coming days of strolling through the exquisite Hidcote Manor's gardens. Setting out each day to explore long-standing, charm-filled English villages like Stanton and Chipping Camden, you'll soak in the wonder of a magical landscape. Wander through the nooks and crannies of a countryside frozen in time, from Moreton-in-the-Marsh to Broadwell's beautiful churchyard to Stow-on-the-Wold, the highest village in the Cotswolds. While there, adopt the lifestyle of a true local, kicking back at the pub with a frosty pint of brew, the fireplace flames licking upward, and a good book in your hands.

Before heading to the city, make one last stop at Highclere Castle, England's own "Downton Abbey." Then, it's on to London to be immersed in a whirlwind of culture and excitement. Explore diverse neighborhoods, beloved monuments, infamous landmarks, and stunning architecture. Walk from the grand Olympic Village to the hip neighborhood of Brick Lane, or take a Blue Badge guided tour to explore must-see sights like Trafalgar Square, Horseguards, Embankment, Whitehall, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and much more. The best way to get to know a place is to walk it - and with an experienced local guide by your side, you and England are about to hit it off incredibly.
