England, Wales, Scotland.

Time travel:


Gatwick Airport, London, UK

Route:London - Cambridge - Stratford-upon-Avon - Warwick Castle - Chester - Betws-y-Coed - Snowdonia - Conwy - Caernarvon ( Caernarvon - Windermere - Holehird Gardens - Gretna Green - Highlands - Loch Lomond - Glencoe Valley - Fort William - Loch Ness Ness) - Urquhart Castle - Blair Atol - Pitlochry (whiskey) - Rosslyn Chapel - Edinburgh - Jedburgh - Durham - York - London.

For the first time in 20 years, we are back to organized travel.

  The only reason for our decision is trivial: in the UK, left-hand traffic takes place, so autotourists who are used to right-hand traffic will need time to adapt.
  Therefore, so that our vacation does not turn into a hassle, we made such the only right decision.

  We used the services of the company TourLeader, where they ordered this trip for 4 people as part of a group, the operator Caspi Aviation.

  We were also lucky because our group had a wonderful guide -Anna Goren.
  Anna Goren is a highly professional specialist who knows her job thoroughly.
  Anna Goren is an excellent psychologist who discreetly creates a friendly atmosphere in the group.
  Anna Goren is the literacy of travel planning.
  Anna Goren is the correct Russian language.
  And, finally, Anna Goren is just a charming woman!

  So, on June 11, 2017 at 7.45 a.m. on a British Airways flight, we, as part of a group of 26 people plus Anna Goren, fly to London. After about 4.5 hours we arrive at London Gatwick Airport. And after a while we are met by a comfortable bus and its driver Bill.
  I want to note right away that Anya took over all the organizational problems, and she coped with it brilliantly. We can only rest.

  As usual, for each point of the trip I will provide brief information, maps, videos and photos, including on the Google Photos website. Details can be found on the site Anna or online.

  The whole group boarded the bus and we started our journey. The first point of our program was Cambridge.

   Сambridge has managed to combine the role of a historic city with the role of a world-famous university, and in recent years also with the role of an internationally recognized center for the development of technology and science. The University of Сambridge was founded in the 13th century by students who left Oxford because of a conflict with the city's inhabitants. Their choice fell on the quiet town of Сambridge, as a suitable place for training.
  A large number of famous alumni educated at the University of Сambridge are represented on this list: mathematicians such as Sir Isaac Newton, philosophers such as Bertrand Russell and Ludwig Wittgenstein and writers such as John Milton and Lord George Gordon Byron. Сambridge was where Rutherford did research in nuclear physics, and Crick and Watson worked on modeling the structure of DNA.
  Сambridge academics have received more Nobel Prizes than academics from other universities in the world.

This is the first hotel on English soil where we spent one night:

Stratford-upon-Avon is the largest pilgrimage site for all tourists in England. In this quiet, calm town, William Shakespeare was born on April 23, 1564 in a house on Hinley Street, and after his return from London he lived in a house that is known as "Shakespeare House" (however, meticulous literary critics sometimes doubt this, as well as that whether the local was really the author of great plays). The tomb of the great playwright is located in the Church of the Holy Trinity.


Warrick Castle

It is always insanely interesting to visit those places that I once read about in chivalric novels. One such place is Warrick Castle. But these are not just ruins or a century-old building - this is a living castle. Thanks to cooperation with Madame Tussauds, in every room you can encounter a wax figure of a court lady, gentleman, servant or guard: some of them work tirelessly, some sit at the piano or relax on a luxurious bed. The interior of the castle has been perfectly restored by the work of restorers. In each room, visitors are greeted with rich decoration, chic furniture, kitchen utensils and household items, and going down to the basement, you find yourself in dungeons and torture chambers.


This is the second hotel where we spent two nights:

The city is famous for its galleries. The upper floor is located on stilts, and the lower one is the shopping arcade.
