Art and Architecture in England's Cathedrals and Churches

This is an itinerary designed for a church group from Arizona. They were looking for an itinerary combining visits to the "must-see" cathedrals with hidden gems such as the Day of Judgement wall-painting at Chaldon and the Chagall stained glass at Tudeley.

We designed an itinerary that included a wealth of architectural and artistic highlights as well as our favourite hotels in York, Ely, Wells and London.
