Itinerary

Day 01: London:  Arrive London on Sunday. Transfer to your hotel is included. You are free to enjoy London on your own. (Please note, hotel check-in is generally between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm. If you are arriving into London early – the hotel should be happy to hold your luggage until your room is ready).

Day 02: London – Touring Begins – York:  It’s time to leave the big city behind and travel to the Peak District. Make your way to London’s Euston Railway Station to board a train to Manchester’s Piccadilly Railway. (Approximate train time: 7:20 am – exact time will be advised three weeks prior to tour beginning). On arrival in Manchester from your train to our mini-coach, and in the late morning, you arrive in Castleton. This quaint old town attracts travelers from all over the world for its quintessential English charm. Nearby, there are caves, a beautiful view up a valley, and an insightful information center. Then venture to another beautiful valley at Monsal Head. There’s an old rail line viaduct that emerges from the green hills. It’s a gorgeous structure with an impressive history. A stop in Bakewell for lunch (not included). Not only is this town delicious to look at, but it’s also the home of one of England’s most famous desserts, the Bakewell Tart. After, we head to Chatsworth House. This luxurious stately home is incredible; you can admire architecture, get lost in a massive maze, or praise precious art. We make our way in the early evening to York, for overnight. (Breakfast)

Day 03: Touring – York:  You spend this morning in York. You can visit a chocolate museum, find out about the Vikings, or even just stroll around the ancient walls. Midday, you join a small group and head to Goathland. This town was used in the Harry Potter movies and is situated in one of the largest expanses of heather moorland in the UK. Your next stop is Whitby. This is the type of town everyone dreams of retiring in. There is a beautifully located ruined abbey; old stone steps curving around viewpoints; and a lovely little beach to play about on. After exploring all the nooks and crannies of Whitby, you travel to Robin Hood’s Bay. They doubt if the real Robin Hood ever came here, but there are still plenty of smugglers tales dotted around this remarkable harbor village. Return to York in the early evening for overnight. (Breakfast)

Day 04: Touring – London:  It’s time to say goodbye to York, England’s capital of Vikings and chocolate. Board a new mini-coach and head to Fountains Abbey. This is one of the largest ruined abbeys in England and part of an important UNESCO Heritage site. Find yourself surrounded by some of England’s most lovely waterfalls at Aysgarth. Time allowed for lunch in Wensleydale, home of England’s most famous cheese. Travel past the epic Ribblehead railway viaduct before having a short snoop around the old castle-topped town of Clitheroe. Arrive in Manchester in the evening where you join the express train service back to London Euston. Arrive in London approximately 9:30 pm, where you will independently make your way to your pre-booked London hotel for overnight. (Breakfast)

Day 05: London – U.S.:  After breakfast, check out of your London hotel. A transfer to the airport is included that will collect you from your hotel to the airport.

TravelKatz® Vacation Testimonials

I accompanied a group of 12 to Alaska this past summer.  We flew into Seattle, saw some of the sights, and then flew to Juneau to start our Adventure Cruise.  What a wonderful Adventure. We saw glaciers, hump-back whales and other fascinating things...we would do this again. Thank you for such a great time!

Sandy H, St Petersburg, FL

I cannot begin to tell you what a wonderful job you did organizing our trip. It absolutely was the best vacation I have ever had. This was my first time over seas and what a wonderful experience. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I am going through “James” withdraw today. He was an amazing tour guide and fit in so well with our group. I will definitely recommend you if I know of anyone thinking of going over to Ireland. Your country is so beautiful and everyone is so friendly. I can’t thank you enough for everything.

Jack & JoAnn Douglass, Miami, FL

I appreciated all the information that was given before I left on the trip. Our Guide, Jerry filled in all the other interesting information on what to expect. I felt safe, well feed and learned so much from a trip 45 mins from USA…I want people to see the beauty of the country, the people and their wonderful culture. I so loved the music. I am playing the CD’s often that I bought from the musicians. A trip I would like to do again. Thank you.
