Sample the rich offerings of the UK's lush countryside, magnetic cities, and magnificent architecture! This 8-night itinerary inspired by the England Original products will give you a little bit of everything, from unforgettable landscapes to energetic pubs.

Chester is where you'll get your vacation started. Indulge your hunger for novelty as you shop the city's two-tiered medieval shopping galleries and visit the 2-mile long city walls. After that, hop a train toward Lancaster.

A city packed with hidden alleyways, legends from the castle prison walls, and great vibes, Lancaster will charm you off your feet. This city-on-a-hill is bursting with creative energy and is the perfect place to reinvigorate your inner artist.

After a scenic train ride, you'll arrive in Carlisle - the urban capital of Cumbria. Located only 10 miles from Scotland and very close to the Lake District and Hadrian's Wall, Carlisle is never short of amazing things to do.

After one last train ride, Edinburgh will be ready to dazzle you with its offerings of castles to explore, food to try, and shopping to do! This historic city will give you plenty to reminisce about while you are on your plane ride home.
