Quintessential England calls to mind afternoon tea, the dreaming spires of Oxford and an afternoon stroll down the Strand. All of those boxes will be ticked on this tour of the major historic centres of Southern England. You’ll take a trip around an Oxford college with a graduate, and then you can judge how lifelike Brideshead Revisited really is.

In Canterbury you’ll visit the famous cathedral. Passing the White Cliffs Of Dover, your Quintessential England tour will end in the scenic town of Rye.
