DRAMATIC HISTORY, BEAUTIFUL CITIES AND MESMERIZING SCENERY combine in the British Isles. View London's must-see icons—Big Ben, Tower of London, Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. In scholarly Cambridge we'll see the 800-year-old university before heading to medieval York. Travel the rolling hills on our way to bonnie Scotland and visit the ancient fortification of Hadrian's Wall (built by the Romans in 122 A.D.). Edinburgh's streets are crammed with both history and a vibrant cultural energy, from the UNESCO World Heritage site of the medieval old town to the abundance of shops, pubs and restaurants. Cross England's Lake District (“outlandishly beautiful,” says Lonely Planet) and enjoy Tudor and Victorian Chester enclosed by ancient walls. Add in picturesque Llangollen in Wales and Stratford-upon-Avon (Shakespeare's birthplace) and we'll have a “right proper” picture of the lovely landscapes of Britain.
