British Escape (KAE)

7 Day Tour from London to Edinburgh

2023 Tour Details

On this Escape, visit the must-see landmarks and experience the culture of Britain without the crowds—and even better—without the high-season prices. It’s the perfect, concise Britain escorted tour that offers you the unforgettable sights of this great land! Have your camera ready to capture all the magnificent experiences as you travel from London to Edinburgh. History buffs will delight in seeing mysterious, prehistoric Stonehenge (just imagine how those stones got there!); the Roman Baths in Bath, constructed around 70 AD and today one of the best-preserved Roman remains in the world; Liverpool, once a great Victorian city and Atlantic seaport, and renowned birthplace of the Beatles; and Edinburgh, home to many Scottish monarchs, including Queen Margaret, who died here in 1093.

Literary fans will enjoy visiting Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon, and Grasmere, home to William Wordsworth. But that's not all…a London Guide will show you all the city’s famous landmarks, from Buckingham Palace to the Prime Minister’s Downing Street and Westminster Abbey; and in Edinburgh, you’ll tour the castle and see Scotland’s Crown Jewels. From the historical sights to the beautiful scenery to the special experiences, this guided tour of England and Scotland is a great way to sample everything Britain has to offer at a price that screams, “Let’s go!”
