Get out of London and see the fascinating landscape, culture and history of central and northern England


A five day tour to get away from the big city, and discover off the beaten track scenery, villages, history and culture. The itinerary id fully customisable if you have a particular area of interest, but you can also leave it completely to me, and relax as the new experiences happen day after day. This tour can be suitable for those who have never ventured outside London, or for confirmed anglophiles. The route can be circular, or a one way trip ending in the North.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will come into London to help yopu take your luggage to my car, which I will leave at Cockfosters tube station, (or other convenient location by arrangement)

End location: As the start, or a Northern train station, or any other suitable location by arrangement.

Duration: 5 days

This is a Monday to Friday tour. It can be split over two weeks, with a weekend or single day break, by arrangement.

Transportation

Renault Grand Scenic. I have space for 4 medium sized suitcases when travelling with 4 passengers. one of the seats is a little limited in space, as I am tall (but the car is fine for 4 people as long as they are not a basketball team)

What’s Included

Other: guiding and transport throughout. Assistance with finding appropriate overnight accomodation.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

150 GBP - this would be to cover overnight accommodation (which I will suggest, but you will book) meals and entry fees. Accommodation can be to your requirements, and prices for a double might vary from 60-300 pounds per night. Cost for lunch might vary from 4 to 15 pounds per person, depending on where and what we eat.
Most of my guests offer to pay for my meals when we are eating together, if you prefer not to do this, we can easily make separate arrangements.

What’s Extra

Other: Admission fees. Quite often tours can be planned based on multiple National Trust and English heritage properties, so a single membership can cover many activities. Tour meals and accommodation. The tour is priced assuming that some (2) of the nights, I will be close enough to home to not need accommodation, if this is NOT the case, there will be a small additional charge (or I will ask you to book my accommodation along with yours)
