English Culture and Language tours 2022
We Offer Day Tours and 3 Day Collection Tours For The Ultimate Holiday Experience
Language and culture are intertwined to such an extent that it is impossible to learn another language without learning something about the culture and heritage of the country as well. Our guided English Culture and Language tours are designed primarily for people who are passionate about our culture and our language. You might be studying English for work, pleasure or maybe you are an EFL/ESL and CLIL teacher interested in learning a bit more about your subject. There is the built in option, on these tours, of English conversation for an hour after your tour has ended.
We offer the opportunity to break away from the ‘classroom’ to experience English life and culture and to practice your English language skills. You will go back to your own country with wonderful memories and a better understanding of our English way of life and our cultural heritage which as a teacher, will help you bring a new awareness to your classroom or as a student will enhance the connection between your English language skills and English culture.
London and bath and the cotswolds
London, capital city of the United Kingdom, is one of the oldest of the world’s great cities. It is the economic, transportation and cultural centre of our country. Bath, a picturesque and historically appealing city has been called ‘the jewel’ of south west England. Close by are the beautiful Cotswolds, a large protected area of national importance.
Our tours include visits to iconic places like Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London as well as more off the beaten track London. We also go to Windsor Castle and St Georges Chapel, where Prince Harry and Megan were married and the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh was recently held.
Bath is one of the UK’s most beautiful cities, with its elegant Georgian architecture, breathtaking scenery and buzzing food scene. If you also want to experience the rolling hills and ancient villages and towns of The Cotswolds, where time has stood still, these tours are for you.
cumbria and the lakes
The Lake District and Hadrian’s Wall are both classified as UNESCO World Heritage sites and you will understand why when you visit. The mountains and lakes are visually stunning and if you think back in history to all the poets, writers and artists who were inspired by this place it all makes sense.
Set amongst the wild beauty of the Cumbrian and Northumbrian landscapes Hadrian’s Wall is an inspiring and atmospheric monument to an extraordinary civilization. There are forts, castles and towns to visit on this tour as you learn about the Romans and discover the importance of protecting the northern border of Roman Britain.
The most famous historical figures that made the Lakes their home were William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, one of the most influential social and environmental theorist of his time. On these tours you will be visiting some of the houses and wonderful galleries and museums that have been set up to preserve this part of England’s cultural heritage.

All our tours are stand alone one day tours and can be booked at any time of the year. We have grouped together 3 of these day tours, in each place, to make a collection, to give you a more complete holiday experience.
