Daily Itinerary

Day 1 May 3 – Depart USA

Your journey begins when you depart on your international overnight flight to England.

Day 2 May 4 – Arrive in England / Canterbury

Welcome to London! Our representative will greet and escort you to your bus. You’ll drive to Canterbury, the ecclesiastical capital of England. Tour the historic Canterbury Cathedral where Thomas à Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury, was murdered by four knights of Henry II in 1170. While many of the original structures were dismantled during the Dissolution of the Monasteries, Canterbury rose again to prominence as home to French Huguenots escaping persecution and the Mayflower Compact to transport pilgrims to the new world. Check in to your hotel for dinner and overnight.

Day 3 May 5 – Cambridge / Coventry

Journey north to Cambridge University that was founded in 1209 by a small group of masters and students fleeing from riot-torn Oxford. Early reformers like William Tyndale attended Cambridge, and at the White Horse Inn, a group of men introduced concepts from the German Reformation to England. Cambridge’s Sidney Sussex College produced Oliver Cromwell, leader of both Protestant and Republican reforms in England. Visit King’s College chapel to see Rubens’ breathtaking Adoration of the Magi. Today’s final destination is Coventry, the city almost completely destroyed by German bombers in 1940. When the city rebuilt, it chose to leave the charred remains of the old Coventry Cathedral next to the new modern one, and together they stand as a tribute to the indomitable spirit of the British people. Tonight, join the people of Coventry Cathedral for Evensong. Check in to your hotel for dinner and overnight.

Day 4 May 6 – Boston / Lutterworth / Coventry

This morning’s first stop is Boston, birthplace of John Foxe and home to St. Botolph’s Church, built in 1319. In 1607, Puritan leaders (then known as Separatists) were held at Boston’s Guildhall for dissent from the Church of England and trying to depart for Holland in search of freedom of worship. Travel on to Lutterworth, where John Wycliffe served at the Parish Church of St. Mary while translating the Bible into the English language. Return to Coventry for dinner and overnight.

Day 5 May 7 – Oxford

This morning, you’ll explore the city of Oxford and see some of the colleges here. You will tour Christ Church College, one of the 39 colleges that are a part of Oxford University. You will also visit the beautiful Christ Church Cathedral which houses beautiful paintings and is home to Great Tom, an 18,000 pound bell, which rings every night at 9:05 signaling the closing of the college gates. William Tyndale earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Magdalen Hall (Hertford College) in 1512. He left for London in 1523 to seek permission to translate the Bible into English. You will visit the Sheldonian Theater, where scholars have graduated or been granted honorary degrees since 1669. See also the Bodleian Library and the Radcliffe Camera. You will see other famous landmarks such as the Bridge of Sighs and the Martyr’s Memorial. Check in to your hotel for dinner and overnight.

Day 6 May 8 – Gloucester / Burton-on-the-Water / Oxford

This morning, travel to Gloucester Cathedral, one of a handful of former Catholic churches spared the ravages of Henry VIII’s reformation. The church was spared in part due to its honor of being a burial place of English Royalty (Edward II). Enjoy a scenic drive through the charming villages of the Cotswolds where honey- colored cottages cluster together in secluded valleys. Enjoy a visit to Burton-on-the-Water, one of the most visited Cotswolds villages. Return to Oxford for dinner and overnight.

Day 7 May 9 – Runnymede and London

You’ll head to Runnymede, where the Magna Carta was signed. Continue on to London where your local tour guide will take you on a panoramic sightseeing tour of the city before stopping at St. Paul’s Cathedral. Attend St. Paul’s Cathedral Evensong service. Check in to your London Hotel. Dinner not included.

Day 8 May 10 – London

Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress (which contains the Tower of London) stands on the banks of the Thames River in the heart of London. William the Conqueror originally began construction in 1078, and although this historic castle was not originally intended to be a prison, it once held kings, queens, religious leaders, children and even Nazi Rudolf Hess. Reformers such as Sir John Oldcastle were imprisoned here during the repression of the Lollards in the 1400’s. Then proceed to Westminster Abbey. The Westminster Confession of Faith was written here, and the abbey contains the graves of many famous people, including England’s early kings and queens. Enjoy some free time to walk around this area of London before returning to your hotel. Dinner not included.

Day 9 May 11 – Return to USA, or extend with time on your own in London or the Wales Extension

Return home with memories of the people of your Anglican Heritage and their sacrifices made, or stay on for two more days on your own in London or enjoy the Wales extension.
