The next day tour Kensington Palace, the home of the British Royal Family since the 17th century. Tour the State Rooms and learn about the history of the British monarchy. In the evening, take in a musical or drama in London’s West End to complete your exploration of the city’s culture or head to a local pub to enjoy a pint among fast friends.

Continue your England vacation, heading west to Stonehenge, the ancient and mysterious stone monument that has transfixed visitors for centuries. Head on to Bath, where you’ll learn about this ancient Roman city and tour the famous Roman Baths. Pass into Wales and reach Cardiff, where you’ll head on a panoramic tour of the city, visiting Principality Stadium and Cardiff Castle. That evening, enjoy some world-famous Welsh hospitality as you feast on Welsh dishes and hear some songs in Welsh. Leave Cardiff and pass through Brecon Beacons National Park, known for its picturesque mountains and moorlands. Stop at the border of England and Wales to explore Hayon-Wye, a market town famous for its book. Pass on to Shrewsbury to see its black-and-white half-timbered homes before reaching Chester, where you’ll take a walking tour of its Roman treasures and medieval architecture.

Reach Liverpool, where you’ll learn about the Beatles, the greatest rock band of all time. Learn about the bandmembers’ childhoods and their early days as a band with The Beatles Story. Head north through the Lake District, the largest national park in the country and home to Scafell Pike, the highest peak in England. Pass into Scotland and reach Edinburgh, a city awash with medieval and Georgian architecture. Explore the Scottish capital with a panoramic city tour, heading to the medieval Old Town and Georgian New Town to see popular landmarks and explore the city’s contrasts. Head to Calton Hill to see its series of monuments and tour Edinburgh Castle, a gorgeous palace built on the summit of an extinct volcano.

On the final leg of your United Kingdom vacation, turn back south towards England and stop at Hadrian’s Wall, a massive fortification built by the Roman Emperor Hadrian in 122A.D. to keep northern tribes out of the Roman Empire. Continue to York, one of England’s largest cities, to head on a walking tour to see Roman and Viking historical sites. Stop at Stratford-upon-Avon to see the home of William Shakespeare and learn about the life of the bard. Then leave the Midlands and tour the Cotswolds, home to the honey-coloured limestone houses that are some of the prettiest buildings in all of England. Then return to London to connect back home.
