Overview

Typical Cotswold cottages and villages, lush green countryside, historic houses, welcoming country pubs and inviting shops make England's Cotswold a walker's paradise. The trip begins and ends in London - one of Europe's most iconic and recognizable cities. A private mini-coach takes us into the countryside, stopping along the way for lunch at Stratford Upon Avon, where William Shakespeare made his home. Our 6-day walking tour begins in the Regency town of Cheltenham Spa and takes us through the picturesque towns of the North Cotswold. We will enjoy some of the most scenic walking in England, soon discovering for ourselves why The Cotswold is described as "a honey pot for walkers." Completing our loop back in Cheltenham, we will transfer to UNESCO Heritage Site, Bath. Known as "the most beautiful city in Britain," Bath is the home of many historic Georgian and Roman spas. On our way back to London we make a stop to tour another of England's icons - Stonehenge.
