Tours in England
English Tours from VorScot
A tour of England barely needs an introduction since even in remote communities around the world everyone knows something about this crowded island nation, perched on the western fringe of Europe. Its range of historic buildings, ancient sites, monuments – its footballers; princes ; pop stars and prime ministers are common knowledge along with its taste for nostalgia.
England is not a simple tour destination, but rather a series of influences that ripple out into the wider world. Much of western history and culture is contained within its very fabric.
On a tour of England's North Country you’ll 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.
Tour the south and you'll see a gentler landscape; quiet country lanes and inland waterways, the shimmering fenlands of the east coast and Stratford, Shakespeare’s birthplace and the university city of Cambridge.
Continue to tour south of London and the area 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.
Tour to the South West of London, the West Country offers great surfing off the craggy Cornwall coast, picturesque thatched cottage villages in the Cotswolds, cider from Somerset and delicious Devon cream teas.
