World-class London is Europe's largest city and one of the most historic.  Enjoy England's culture (baked beans for breakfast?), castles and cathedrals, then drive (on the left!) through the Cottswolds on roads not listed on the map.  Try punting near Oxford University. Discover hidden historic gems like Gold Hill and Castle Combe that allow us to imagine life in earlier times.  Finish with your visual dessert: a visit to the tranquil Lake District.
