England & Wales

England & Wales Tours:
Country, Coast and Cream Teas

Once the center of the Great British Empire, England has more than just a few stories to tell. Even within its country borders the great variety in landscapes and culture is mind boggling. Two of the most popular tourist destinations are undoubtedly Cornwall with stunning coastlines and quaint fishing villages and Devon, home to the famous Dartmoor National Park. Combined with a visit to a seaside resort the likes of Eastbourne or Brighton, some stunning architecture in Oxford and Bath and of course the cosmopolitan vibe of London it seems hard to believe that all of this can be experienced in one country.

For those who have time for more, Wales lies literally just around the corner. Crossing the border seems like a non-event but soon after one will discover that Wales is truly a country of its own. Place names like Llanfairpwllgwyngyll – which is short for Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch - seem to prove the point and indeed the stunning scenery, diverse wildlife and friendly people definitely put this place on the map.
