With a Welsh language lesson, behind-the-scenes access with experts to castles, and village shopping, you’ll soon feel like a local.

Our time in Wales will include visits to iconic castles, gorgeous country houses and ancient walled towns. No visit to the area would be complete without simultaneously enjoying fine dining and luxury hotels.

Our home for two nights will be the magnificent Bodysgallen Hall Hotel & Spa, where you will indulge yourself in the luxuries of this top-rated country house hotel owned and operated by the National Trust.

Apart from our time in Wales, we will enjoy many great stops in England including Althorp, the ancestral home of Diana, Princess of Wales as well as Stratford-upon-Avon and Bletchley Park, the home of the WWII codebreakers.

Throughout the tour you can expect special touches that set our tours apart from the rest.

Also, I am pleased to be joined on this tour by Dr. Mark Baker who is an expert on the Welsh country house. He will offer us insights into the places we will visit, and you’ll enjoy getting to know his charming persona.

So come with us and discover the Wonders of Wales and England.
