Arrive London on Sunday. Transfer to your hotel is included. You are free to enjoy London on your own. (Please note: hotel check-in is generally between 2 pm and 4 pm. If you are arriving into London early - the hotel should be happy to hold your luggage until your room is ready).

Day 02: London - York

It's time to leave the big city behind and travel to the Peak District. Make your way to London's Euston Railway Station to board a train to Manchester's Piccadilly Railway. (Approximate train time: 7:20 am - exact time will be advised three weeks prior to tour beginning). On arrival in Manchester, transfer from your train to our mini-coach, and in the late morning, you arrive in Castleton. This quaint old town attracts travelers from all over the world for its quintessential English charm. Nearby, there are caves, a beautiful view up a valley, and an insightful information center. Then venture to another beautiful valley at Monsal Head. There's an old rail line viaduct that emerges from the green hills. It's a gorgeous structure with an impressive history. A stop in Bakewell for lunch (not included). Not only is this town delicious to look at, but it's also the home of one of England's most famous desserts, the Bakewell Tart. After, we head to Chatsworth House. This luxurious stately home is incredible; you can admire the architecture, get lost in a massive maze, or praise precious art. We make our way in the early evening to York for our overnight. (B)

Day 03: Touring - York

You spend this morning in York. You can visit a chocolate museum, find out about the Vikings, or even just stroll around the ancient walls. Midday, you join a small group and head to Goathland. This town was used in the Harry Potter movies and is situated in one of the largest expanses of heather moorland in the UK. Your next stop is Whitby. This is the type of town everyone dreams of retiring in. There is a beautifully located ruined abbey, old stone steps curving around viewpoints, and a lovely little beach to play about on. After exploring all the nooks and crannies of Whitby, you travel to Robin Hood's Bay. They doubt if the real Robin Hood ever came here, but there are still plenty of smugglers tales dotted around this remarkable harbor village. Return to York in the early evening for overnight. (B)

Day 04: Touring - London

It's time to say goodbye to York, England's capital of Vikings and chocolate. Board a new mini-coach and head to Fountains Abbey.
