History buffs will be delighted in seeing mysterious, prehistoric Stonehenge (just imagine how these stones got there!); the Roman Baths in Bath, constructed around 70 AD and today one of the best preserved Roman remains in the world; medieval market town of Ludlow, perched on a cliff above the river Teme; Edinburgh, home to many Scottish monarchs, including Queen Margaret, who died here in 1093; and York, England's most complete medieval city with its cobbled streets and the magnificent York Minister.

Literary fans will enjoy visiting Shakespeare's birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon; Abbotsford House, home of Sir Walter Scott; Grasmere, home to William Wordsworth. But that's not all…Globus has also arranged special, out-of-the-ordinary experiences for you.

LONDON-STONEHENGE-BATH. Meet your Tour Director and traveling companions, and depart at 8 am for a memorable day of sightseeing. First, try to unravel the mystery of prehistoric STONEHENGE. Explore the visitor center with its imaginative exhibitions, then take the shuttle to the stone circle and admire the magnificence of the monument up close. Cross Salisbury Plain and head for the elegant Georgian city of Bath, where you see the amazing excavations of the ROMAN BATHS. You will also have time to explore the town further on your own. Tonight, enjoy a welcome dinner at your hotel. (B,D)
