enough to call these historic houses their homes, situated in one of the most quintessentially English regions of Britain. We are also given special

access to other impressive properties as we take in the best of the Cotswolds, an area known for idyllic, honey-coloured stone towns and villages

set against a picturesque rural backdrop of gently rolling hills. These are complemented perfectly by some magnificent stately homes around

Oxford, the city of Dreaming Spires as well as a detour into Bath and the South West. Join us on this unique and exclusive small group tour which

New England in the Fall 30th September- 12th October 2019

After two sold out tours in 2007 and 2012 we are running this successful tour again. The autumn leaves of New England in the Eastern United States

are one of the natural wonders of the world and to view their beauty is a marvellous experience. Although the tour will have an autumn theme there

will also be an emphasis on the history, art and architecture of the area concentrated around the regions of Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont,

New Hampshire and Maine.

Our tour will start in Boston where we will enjoy a student-guided tour of Harvard University where we will learn about Harvard’s history, untold

stories and lore surrounding the “Harvard Culture”. Other places we visit are Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower II where the Pilgrims landed.

Newport, Rhode Island, is home to some of the most magnificent mansions in the US including the Breakers, the home of the Vanderbilt’s, off whose

shores the America’s Cup first sailed. A visit to Martha’s Vineyard with its colourful “gingerbread” houses is included.

As we journey through Vermont we begin to see the beautiful autumn foliage, small towns with colourful houses surrounded by trees showing their

leaves in shades of yellow and red. We drive through wooden bridges painted in red and head into New Hampshire where we experience the Lakes

Region where we see the leaves reflected in their breathtaking beauty. The tour will include visits to the Bennington Battle Monument, the Shelburne

Museum, Hancock Shaker Village, Concord and Lexington amongst others.

These are just some of the highlights of this tour of New England.
