After lunch we'll visit the ruins of Pevensey Castle, the site from where, in 1066, the Norman King William launched his invasion of England and defeated the English King Harold in the Battle of Hastings.We truly enjoyed seeing, experiencing, dining, and sleeping in villages such as Alfriston and Chagford, as well as larger towns and cities such as Canterbury, Penzance, and Bath. If I have to, I would say, seeing Stonehenge and learning about the history of this ancient site as well as the ancient stone sites on Dartmoor. " We have taken several ETBD tours and this ranks right up there in the top three. We felt the tour was well organized and a well-balanced set of diverse experiences.We learned a lot about the history of these places and had unique experiences, such as observing a working dog on a Devon farm, making pasties in a Cornish bakery, and touring a brewery and a tin mine. "Picking out a "favorite" wow moment on this trip is almost impossible. Eating the pasties that we made, watching the artisan repairing the stained glass windows at the Canterbury Cathedral shop, tramping the Moors, and the Portsmouth Shipyards various ships and it's restoration shop." Great locations. We especially appreciated the history lessons woven in to our sight-seeing experiences.
I felt like this trip included more "experiences," and fewer typical tourist activities like museums, than most tours. I've been in England several times, and each time I fall more deeply in love.
