7 Nights - The Shakespeare Way follows a route that the great poet and playwright may have taken when he left his birthplace, Stratford-on-Avon, for London sometime between 1585 and 1588. We cannot know the exact route that he took but we know that he had connections in Oxford with his friend and inn-keeper, John Davenant, whilst he was of course familiar with the countryside of Warwickshire and probably of the Cotswolds, which feature in Richard II. The Shakespeare Way passes through some beautiful places and beside notable landmarks, including the Rollright Stones, Chipping Norton, Woodstock (close to Blenheim Palace and the burial place of Sir Winston Churchill at Bladon), Oxford, Marlow, Cookham, and Kew, before finishing at the recreation of Shakespeare's Globe Thatre in Southwark, London. The route can be followed in either direction and taken on in sections.

Derbyshire & The Peak DistrictPrice: $1,350/per person

7 Nights - The Peak District in the county of Derbyshire is like an upland Cotswolds. It is an area of immense variety and importance, rich in wildlife where dramatic moorlands contrast sharply with lush valleys and stunning limestone gorges, where centuries-old stone villages and market towns have been as much a part of the environment on the landscape itself. The contrasting landscape is never more apparent than in the High Peak to the north, where you’ll find the Derwent Valley’s historic ‘Dam Busters’ dams and the caverns in the picturesque village of Castleton, where there is also an interesting castle. And at Baslow is Chatsworth House, one of the finest great houses in Britain.
