July 24 to August 4, 2019

With faculty leader Elaine Treharne, traverse the Highlands on a two-night journey aboard the Belmond Royal Scotsman. In addition, relive bygone eras on two day trips aboard vintage private trains—from a Welsh slate mine to the sea aboard the world’s oldest narrow gauge railway, and across the Yorkshire moors.

Land of Lancelot. Explore Conwy castle in Wales, birthplace of the Arthurian legend and home to more castles per square mile than anywhere else in Europe. Och aye. Observe and/or engage in a variety of robust Scottish pastimes, including clay-pigeon shooting, tartan weaving and whisky tasting. Hill and dale. Journey from the mountains of Snowdonia through the Yorkshire Dales to the peaks and valleys of the Scottish Highlands.
