Tentative Itenarary

DAY 1: OVERNIGHT FLIGHT    Depart from the USA.
DAY 2: DUBLIN Arrive in Dublin, a former Viking settlement at the mouth of the River Liffey and now Ireland's capital. Meet our ACIS Tour Manager and begin our adventure in Ireland.
DAY 3: DUBLIN Sightseeing shows us statue-filled O'Connell Street and takes us inside St. Patrick's Cathedral. In the afternoon there is time to explore the Temple Bar section of Dublin. Situated near the Liffey and the Ha'penny Bridge, Temple Bar boasts cafés, galleries and trendy shops. Tonight take an evening stroll around Trinity College’s campus and the lively surrounding neighborhood.
DAY 4: LAKE DISTRICT This morning, journey across the Irish Sea to Wales. Enjoy a scenic drive through North Wales to the Lake District, where we will spend the night. Comprised of 16 lakes, this incredibly beautiful and mystical area has been home to many famous English poets.
DAY 5: EDINBURGH Begin our morning by visiting the village of Grasmere, a favorite among Lake Poets. Wordsworth lived in Dove Cottage and is buried at the local church. Then imagine yourself as a Roman soldier in Britain as we travel to Hadrian's Wall, the Roman Empire’s northernmost defense against marauders in northern Britain. Portions of the once 80-mile-long wall still stand—a testament to Roman engineering. After stopping for a photo beside the border stone marking the England/Scotland border at Carter Bar, we continue through the spectacular Northumberland Moors to Edinburgh, Scotland.
DAY 6: EDINBURGH Sightseeing shows us Princes Street and Charlotte Square before a visit to Edinburgh Castle, perched high up in the old town. The afternoon is free to indulge in local literary history at the Writer's Museum or shop for souvenirs. Woolens, tartans and sheepskins are especially popular. In the evening enjoy a guided Old Town walking tour
DAY 7: YORK Journey south through the rugged Northumberland countryside. Arrive in the walled city of York and uncover the secrets of its quaint cobbled streets during a sightseeing tour including entrance to York Minster. This large English Gothic cathedral is among the oldest and largest of its kind in Europe.

This morning journey to London via a visit to Windsor Castle. Begun by William the Conqueror, today it is an official residence of the British Royal Family and the world’s oldest and largest occupied castle. Once checked into your London hotel, venture out after dinner for a stroll around the West End.


This morning, learn about London's majestic past and fast-paced present on our guided sightseeing tour. See historic Trafalgar Square and the Houses of Parliament and be in the right position to watch the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. Along the way, our guide will point out more modern landmarks like the Gherkin, the Shard, and the Cheese Grater—all new buildings changing the London skyline. Another highlight of the day is a tour inside St. Paul’s Cathedral. Sir Christopher Wren's architectural masterpiece is an enduring symbol of London, the seat of the Church of England and famed for its dome and Whispering Gallery. You may wish to cap off your exceptional week with some last-minute shopping on Bond Street or at the world-famous Harrods.
DAY 10: DEPARTURE Depart for the USA.
