Day 1: London - Darlington

Cambridge UniversityWe meet our Tour Director in a Central London location, then drive to Cambridge, described as the 'loveliest city in England' and home of one of England's finest universities. We walk among the colleges, including magnificent King's College, then on to York. Exploring inside the ancient city walls, we see the maze of narrow medieval streets (including the quaintly-named 'Shambles') and the 13th century York Minster, England's largest Medieval Cathedral. There's also time to browse in York's tempting shops before we continue to our hotel for dinner. (D)

See the Royal Mile, the ancient St. Giles Cathedral and 18th century New Town. We visit the castle, dominating the city from its rocky crag. Tonight, there may be the opportunity to enjoy a grand Scottish night out, complete with haggis and the skirl of the pipes. (B)

Driving through the Southern Uplands. Then it's on to Gretna Green, where many an eloping English couple have been married.
