Even if you're not bold enough to try bubble and squeak, haggis and tatties, or cockles and laverbread, you'll still enjoy this perfect sampling of England, Scotland, and Wales. Our most popular tour of Britain, this tri-country introductory vacation has something for everyone. History buffs will treasure prehistoric Stonehenge, the Roman ruins of Bath and the medieval cities and towns such as York and Ludlow. Music lovers will cherish the music-festival town of Llangollen and The Beatles' hometown of Liverpool. Literary fans will relish the countryside homes of William Shakespeare, Sir Walter Scott, and William Wordsworth. And beer and whisky connoisseurs will savor the dimly lit pubs from London to Edinburgh and back-where if you just can't bring yourself to taste the black pudding-there's always delicious fish and chips!While you're sampling shepherd's pie and shandy, why not try a little souffle and champagne, too? It's easy when you add a 3-day Monograms vacation to Paris to your tour of Britain. Board the high-speed Eurostar train for guided sightseeing and ample time on your own to explore the storied streets and inviting cafes along the Seine.
