CULTURE VULTURES PLAN AN EXTENDED STAY IN THE UK NEXT YEAR WITH ALBION JOURNEYS
Why not extend your stay in the UK and combine two of our fascinating tours, enabling you to explore even more of the UK in 2019. Here at Albion we can help you with suggested itineraries and booking extra accommodation for you in between the two scheduled tours, helping to make arrangements as hassle-free as possible for you.
Two of our tours that depart in September next year complement each other well and would enable you to explore the literary connections across two very important and interesting areas of the UK, allowing you to follow the journeys associated with Shakespeare and the Brontë sisters. The two tours also start and finish in the same location-Royal Windsor.
Stunning Stately Homes of Yorkshire & the Brontës
September 1 to 10, 2019
$5,140 per person
The Brontës are well known as poets and novelists and their home, now the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Yorkshire, has become a place of pilgrimage for thousands of visitors each year. We make the journey north to York to discover places associated with their lives, alongside other historic houses with literary associations such as grand Knebworth House, once the residence of dramatist Edward Bulwer-Lytton, and imposing East Riddlesden Hall, believed to be the inspiration for Gilbert and Sullivan's Ruddigore.
In the Footsteps of Shakespeare
September 15 to 25, 2019
$5,490 per person
A poet, playwright and actor, William Shakespeare is widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. This tour will provide a very real insight into Shakespeare's life and times, visiting Stratford-upon-Avon, where he was born and grew up, and exploring other historic houses in the area associated with his story, as we discover pretty market towns and picturesque country villages. On our return south, we recreate the fabled journeys Shakespeare is believed to have taken to Oxford, the iconic city and world-famous seat of learning. A highlight of the tour will be the chance to attend performances at the iconic Royal Shakespeare Company Theatre in Stratford and at the Globe Theatre in London.
Why not visit London in between tours
Why not enhance your stay in the UK by visiting London for 5 nights in-between the two tours. Albion can organize your transfers, accommodation at their recommended hotels, theatre performances and visits to some of the must see attractions.
No single supplement places still available on many departures.
Albion are specialists in heritage tours of Great Britain and Ireland and we pride ourselves in offering a truly unique experience with our fully-escorted programs and small groups. With behind the scenes tours, after dinner guest speakers and insights from some owners of the properties themselves, you can really immerse yourself in the locations that you visit in 2019.
