12-Day Journey to England & Scotland

DAY 1 (SEP 22) Depart Atlanta for your overnight flight to London, England.

DAY 2 (SEP 23) Arrival in London – Arrive in London. You are met by your tour manager and transferred to the hotel. Enjoy free time in the afternoon. Welcome dinner and overview of the journey. Dinner and overnight.

DAY 3 (SEP 24) London on the footsteps of the Reformers – London goes beyond any boundary or convention. It contains every wish or word ever spoken, every action or gesture ever made, every harsh or noble statement ever expressed. It is illimitable. It is Infinite London.” (Peter Ackroyd). In the morning, we will enjoy a panoramic tour of London, incl. Big Ben, Tower of London (inside), Westminster Abbey, London Eye, Parliament, Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace (all outside). Within the city tour, we discover the Bun Hill Fields Burial Ground, which is a Nonconformist burial ground. It’s the final resting place of John Bunyan, Isaac Watts, Daniel Defoe, and William Blake, along with many other leading intellectuals, radicals and clergymen from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. In the late afternoon, we visit St Paul’s Cathedral. During the years of religious turmoil in the 16th century that led to the Reformation in England, Paul’s Cross in the churchyard of St. Paul’s Cathedral became a focus of national theological debate. Sermons were given by both those who sought reform and their conservative opponents. The cathedral went through a long period of change. We will discover London’s greatest church through the eyes of the Reformers. Return to the hotel.

DAY 4 (SEP 25) Canterbury a religious Capitol and Leeds Castle – This morning we drive to Canterbury. We will be informed about the year 1534 when King Henry VIII declared himself head of the Church in England and took control of church affairs. From the year 1536 his officials went around the country closing monasteries and claiming their wealth for the crown. Located in the Canterbury Cathedral the shrine of St. Thomas was especially problematic for King Henry VIII. By this time, Becket was being remembered as someone who lost his life standing up to the royal authority – something Henry did not want to encourage. Becket was declared a banned saint and in the year 1538 Becket’s shrine was destroyed. On the way back to London we stop at Leeds Castle which has a great history. It has been a Norman stronghold; the private property of six of England’s medieval queens; a palace used by Henry VIII and his first wife Catherine of Aragon; a Jacobean country house; a Georgian man-sion; an elegant early 20th century retreat for the influential and famous; and in the 21st century. It has become one of the most visited historic buildings in Britain. Return to London Dinner and overnight.

DAY 5 (SEP 26) Stonehenge/Salisbury/Bath – In the morning we leave London and discover Salisbury Cathedral, one of the leading examples of Early English Gothic architecture. We visit the Salisbury Methodist Church which is rich in history. 250 years ago, two men came on horseback and preached in Salisbury. One was the founder of Methodism, John Wesley, who visited Salisbury 40 times The other was Sir Francis Asbury, the Founder of American Methodism who came to Salisbury in 1771. As a result of these visits and the people these preachers inspired, the Methodist Church of Salisbury was-born. We continue to Stonehenge. As iconic as it is mysterious, Stonehenge holds over 4500 years of English history. Take a trip back in time and explore this ancient engineering masterpiece. Overnight in Bath 

DAY 6 (SEP 27) Bath/Oxford/Stradford upon Avon – In the Unesco world heritage site Bath we go on a city tour. For the last 2,000 years, its natural thermal springs, which give the city its name. Bath is home to a wide variety of historical attractions like the Roman Baths. It is also home to some of the most impressive Georgian architectural triumphs in the entire UK.

DAY 7 (SEP 28) Stradford upon Avon/Sheffield/Windermere – In the morning we have a guided city tour on the footpath of the World’s greatest Poet. The effects of the Reformation were not as violent in Stratford as other parishes. Catholicism had flourished, but the townspeople were quick to accept the frequent changes in religion that characterized the 1600. We continue our journey to the town Sheffield which John Wesley visited lots of times. We see the famous Cathedral where a stained-glass window in the Chapter House depicts John Wesley preaching in the square. After the lunch we continue north to the lake district national park. This is where modern tourism was born, in the shimmering lakes and hushed mountains whose radiant beauty inspired poets and painters to turn nature into art. Peter rabbit is one of the most famous characters created by author and conservationist Beatrix Potter. Beatrix Potter's love of the Lake District came from an early age, when she and her family holidayed in the area. Dinner and overnight in Windermere.

DAY 8 (SEP 29) Cruise Windermere/Gretna Green/Glasgow – We board our boat on the beautiful lake Windermere, the largest natural lake of England. We continue north to pass the border and the Hadriatic wall to Scotland. On a city tour we find out about the Scottish Reformation. Dinner and overnight in Glasgow.

DAY 9 (SEP 30) Inveraray/Oban/Glasgow – This morning we start our adventure into the Scottish Highlands. We discover Inveraray Castle the residence of the Duke of Argyll. The Castle, nestled on the banks of Loch Fyne in Argyll, serves as the fictional location of Duneagle Castle in the famous TV series “Downton Abbey”. We arrive at the beautiful city Oban, also known as the “gateway to the Hebride Islands”. We are going to taste the “water of life” throughout a Whiskey tasting at the Oban distillery. Return to Glasgow and overnight.

Edinburgh is known for its dark past, and this evening walking tour is the original one to showcase the city's historically sinister and spooky side. We discover the hidden ‘wynds’ (alleys) and closes of the Old Town as we learn their mysteries and horrors. We visit the ghost-ridden Greyfriars Kirkyard; and explore the city’s underground vaults to uncover their spirits and secrets. The night tour is led by a creepily costumed guide.

DAY 11 (OCT 02) Day at Leisure or Daytrip to St. Andrews – Day at leisure in Edinburgh or drive to St. Andrews the birthplace of the Golf sport and an important sight of the Scottish Reformation. That Protestantism became Scotland’s main religion was in part due to committed preachers like George Wishart and John Knox, who actively recruited and enthused the most influential and powerful sections of Scottish society to the Protestant cause. Knox, like many others, had been both exposed to the Reformation and grew to support this new theology, as opposed to the traditional Catholic foundations of Scotland’s religion. Patrick Hamilton, a fellow St Andrews reformer and Protestant martyr, and George Wishart, a priest who had fled to Scotland in 1538 to escape accusations of heresy, both inspired Knox’s conversion to Protestantism, and the three men all became close friends. Return and overnight in Edinburgh.

DAY 12 (OCT 03) Edinburgh/USA - Transfer to Edinburgh Airport for your return flight home with luggage packed with keepsakes and your heart full of memories!
