Great Cathedrals of England

This tour is designed as an introduction to some of the best of England's great cathedrals, concentrating on the ones to the west of London in addition to St.Paul's, Westminster Abbey, Rochester and Canterbury. We feel that the itinerary is of particular interest to Anglican groups and have therefore included worship on most days so that group members can experience the cathedrals as well as seeing them.

As always, the itinerary can be amended to suit the wishes of the individual group.
