England
CheshireIn England's north you will find the scenic splendour of lakes and mountains, castles, dramatic coastlines and glorious national parks, combined with the medieval city of York, lively Blackpool and Manchester, world renowned for its football clubs.  In the south you will see a gentler landscape; quiet country lanes and inland waterways, the shimmering fenlands of the east coast, Stratford, Shakespeare's birthplace and the university town of Cambridge.

LondonLondon

CornwallThe area south of London boasts glorious gardens, oast houses and stately homes whilst the southern coast has an enviable reputation for its beaches and resorts, historic market towns and the charming cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury, close to Stonehenge.  To the south west of London, the West Country offers great surfing off the craggy Cornwall coast, picturesque thatched cottage villages in the Cotswold's, historic Bath, cider from Somerset and delicious Devon cream teas.

Scotland
ScotlandEdinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen, Inverness and Stirling are the 6 cities of Scotland.  In Edinburgh the castle dominates the city and from its ramparts you can look down on medieval lanes and elegant sweeping terraces that hold over a thousand years of history, mystery and tradition.  Yet there is a modern, dynamic Edinburgh where international festivals attract world class performers, galleries display cutting-edge art and bars, restaurants and clubs create a lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere with a Scottish twist.  Each of the cities has its own distinctive character but all guarantee the visitor a vibrant mix of history, culture, entertainment and shopping.  Or you can escape to the tranquility of Scotland's breathtaking highland landscape.
