Photography Tour Overview:
   Experience the best of England and Wales with an English Guide the Cotswolds, north Wales, the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, and Stonehenge et cetera. Most folk know 'enough' about England, and it is often thought, quite wrongly, that Wales is part of England, but is just as distinct in its culture as Ireland and Scotland . . . perhaps even more so. It is a small compact country with a great variety in its terrain that ranges from lush farmlands, and spectacular coastline to the rugged peaks of Snowdonia. We'll experience Welsh culture in the form of a farm visit, the lyrical language, and more plus the charms that England has to offer. As with all of our photography tours, early and late shooting is scheduled for each day.


Our itinerary . . .
But first things first! We suggest that you set your camera's clock to the local time, as your images will then synchronize with the times in our included photo tour field notes.


Day 1  |  Avebury Stones and Stonehenge
We'll gather at our Heathrow hotel mid-morning, and then head west on the M4 and then turn south into the 'green and pleasant' English landscape where we can slow down for our first picture opportunities. English villages are notoriously charming and the day's highlight will be Avebury which was built among giant standing stones. On to Salisbury in Wiltshire for some rest after long flights, with Stonehenge in the late light on the menu following dinner. The stones as a circle date to around 4,000 years old, and were shipped there from south Wales.
Near Stonehenge, 1 night

Days 2, 3 + 4  |  Lacock, Castle Combe and the Cotswolds
We’ll take a second look at Stonehenge at dawn prior to departing for the Cotswolds. First though we'll point cameras at Salisbury Cathedral, and on to a pair of classic English villages, Lacock and Castle Combe. On to the Cotswolds region in central England for a three-night sojourn amid the warm stoned, rose-clad cottages.
Days 2 and 3  will find us shooting around the pretty Cotswold stone villages of the Slaughters, Bibury, Minster Lovell and Coln St. Dennis . . . thatches and charm abounding.
The Cotswolds, 3 nights


Days 5, 6 + 7  |  Warwick and Snowdonia National Park, Wales
After finishing our photography in the Cotswolds we'll go via Warwick into Wales where I once lived and worked as a Photographer. There will be many a stop for an intimate landscape composition dotted with sheep and weather-worn Oaks, hedgerows and stone walls, then on to our 4 night home in Snowdonia National Park.
On days 6 and 7 we'll take loop trips to include Cricieth, Caernarfon, Harlech and Conway castles, the Lleyn Peninsula, Llanberis Pass, the Isle of Anglesey via Telford's suspension bridge to Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwrndrobyllllantysiliogogogoch, and a Welsh sheep farm. The Welsh language is strong in the north, and you'll likely to hear me speaking it with the locals . . . it comes in handy for creating photo opportunities too!
North Wales, 3 nights

Days 8, 9 + 10  |  The Lake District, England
The ruggedness of Snowdonia gives way to the green, rolling Clwydian Hills today as rock gives way to moorland, and castle gives way to Llangollen with its steam trains and story book landscape.
Then on to the Lake District in Cumbria. The 'Lakes' are the most naturally photogenic area in England and we'll explore it all from our 3 night base. Loop trips will take us to Derwentwater; Ashness Bridge; Buttermere; Langdale; Castlerigg stone circle and Grasmere, where Wordsworth "wandered lonely as a cloud". The "host of golden daffodils" will be gone at this time, but the likes of Bluebell will handsomely take up the slack. Sunrise photography in the Lake District is among the best, and consequently we'll be out early and late in search of the best light.
Lake District, 3 nights


Days 11, 12 + 13  |  The Yorkshire Dales, England
Following sunrise, we'll 'mop-up' in the Lake District and take a slow drive throughout the day exploring lesser traveled roads which will eventually carry us in the Yorkshire Dales. The Dales were brought to the world's attention by James Herriot's books, and you'll see why he so loved the green and gray patchwork of stone barns, drystone walls and rolling hillsides.
Days 12 and 13 will include a farm visit and Dales vistas smattered with northern English character, sheep and thick Yorkshire accents. As this is Herriot country we'll explore the book and TV scenes of Langthwaite, Askrigg and the remote Walden Beck.
Yorkshire Dales, 3 nights


Day 14  |  Fountains Abbey and one last English village
We go south today, but we're far from done as our morning to early afternoon destination will be the historic Fountains Abbey. Then on the fast-track south to Heathrow via a detour to one last picturesque English village The included dinner on the last night of our photography tour will feature an 'It's You!' presentation of clients in action on this tour by John.
Near Heathrow airport, 1 night


Day 15  |  Departure day
As there isn't any photography scheduled for the day of departure on this trip, your flight home can be arranged for any time today. Transport to the airport is included unless you’re staying on for a day or more.
