In 2004, Edinburgh became the first member of the UNESCO Creative Cities initiative when it was designated a City of Literature.The Scottish Highlands is the rugged northern and North-western portion of Scotland.

    Leeds Castle Canterbury and Dover

    The area of England this tour journeys through is called Kent and its known to be very fertile and famous for growing fruit and hops - these are the main ingredients for beer and cider! We visit Canterbury and learn about the Martyr Thomas Beckett who was slain by the King of England a long time ago in the mighty Cathedral. Then we venture to a beautiful castle which was used several times by Kings Henry VIII. After exploring Leeds Castle we then drop down to the coast for a photo stop at the White Cliffs of Dover to complete this great day out.

    Cambridge and Oxford

    Come spend a day with us exploring these fantastic places and learn about how Universities started and view the stunning architecture of colleges such as Trinity, Kings College, Christchurch and more. Both of these places are very well known for their universities but they actually have much more to offer than just academia! Cambridge is a city that dates back almost 2000 years and situated in an area famous for its canals. For generations people have floated down stream to appreciate the beautiful surroundings. Oxford has many similarities to Cambridge, but it has a much busier vibe - similar to that of London while fortunately keeping its own unique identity.
