Join WTVI PBS Charlotte for a journey to Great Britain and the best of this great land. A guided sightseeing tour shows you all the famous landmarks in London: the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and visits to St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Changing of the Guard. Head southwest to admire the breathtaking gardens at Henry VIII’s Hampton Court Palace, then venture on to prehistoric Stonehenge, the Roman excavations of Bath, the Cotswolds village of Stow, Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon, and picturesque Llangollen in northern Wales. Continue north through the Lake District, pausing in Wordsworth’s Grasmere and Gretna Green before arriving in Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital. Admire the Crown Jewels at Edinburgh Castle and explore Holyrood Palace. Traveling south again, visit Sir Walter Scott’s Abbotsford House, and in medieval York, admire the mighty minster and enjoy a walking tour through the narrow Shambles. Return to London by way of the market town of Stamford and the university city of Cambridge.
