London to Stratford Upon Avon to YorkMay 22, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C
After an early 7.30am start out of busy London our first destination was 160 km North to Stratford-upon-Avon to see its wealth of beautiful black and white timber framed buildings. We visited the home and birthplace of William Shakespeare which was full of interesting memorabilia and artefacts relating to his life. Our second stop for the day and our overnight destination on day 1 of the tour was the historic town of York a further 238km North. We strolled the narrow lanes filled with quaint colourful shops including the Shambles, a maze of twisting and turning streets filled with overhanging timber framed buildings dating back to the 14 century. Another of our stops was to England’s largest medieval cathedral York Minster dating back to the 7th century. Our tour director provided much historical information on a number of buildings and landmarks throughout the day.
The group of 30 rounded off the day with a delightful dinner at our Hilton hotel.Read more
