Chaucer, Dickens & Tennyson: The Ultimate 15-Day Guided Tour of England’s Literary Greats

Travel in the footsteps of England’s literary giants as we journey from the London stomping grounds of Charles Dickens to the inspiration of Jane Austen’s novels in Bath. A tour of the Agatha Christie Mile in Dorset unveils the storied past of the queen of crime, with a chance to see Earl Carnarvon the fifth’s ancient Egyptian antiques. Join your Local Expert in Stratford-Upon-Avon as they guide you through the history of Shakespeare’s birthplace and bring Wuthering Heights to life in York as you walk in the footsteps of the Brontë sisters. In Cambridge, experience the historic haunts of Lord Byron and be sure to pause in the Lake District for what Wordsworth described as the loveliest spot that man hath ever found.
