Guided by a trail map, you'll have the freedom to explore at your own pace and will hike and drive through gorgeous countryside and picture-postcard villages on a journey that harkens back to a bygone age. Along the way, depending on which route you take, you'll see Stone Age monuments, an Iron Age fort, a Roman amphitheater, and Anglo-Saxon settlements.
Day 5: Enjoy One of England’s Most Inspiring Gardens
Situated in the beautiful Cotswold countryside, Hidcote Manor is home to one of England’s most inspiring gardens. Created by the talented American horticulturist Major Lawrence Johnston, this green space is characterized by colorful outdoor "rooms" that are full of surprises. Wander through a maze of narrow pathways and secret gardens blooming with exotic plants, many of which were collected during Johnston’s trips to faraway places.

You'll also see a range of architectural gems like the Harvard House, the Guild Chapel, and Holy Trinity Church, where Shakespeare is buried.
Day 7: Discover the Northern Coast of WalesToday is all about castles and coast! While exploring the area around Conwy, you'll encounter a group of 13th-century castles—Caernarfon, Conwy, and Beaumaris. This trio of fortresses is so historic that they've earned UNESCO World Heritage status.
Day 8: Visit Shakespeare's Globe Theatre & Catch a Rooftop FilmIt's back to London today for a tour of Shakespeare's Globe, once known as the Globe Theatre.
