History buffs will delight in seeing mysterious, prehistoric Stonehenge (just imagine how those stones got there!); the Roman Baths in Bath, constructed around 70 AD and today one of the best-preserved Roman remains in the world; Liverpool, once a great Victorian city and Atlantic seaport, and renowned as the birthplace of the Beatles; and Edinburgh, home to many Scottish monarchs, including Queen Margaret, who died here in 1093.Literary fans will enjoy visiting Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon, and Grasmere, home to William Wordsworth. But that’s not all…a London Guide will show you all the city’s famous landmarks, from Buckingham Palace to the Prime Minister’s Downing Street and Westminster Abbey; in Edinburgh you’ll tour the castle and see Scotland’s Crown Jewels; and in Liverpool, your Tour Director will walk you through the Beatles quarter—all the better experience without the long lines and crowds.
