Joyce
Limington Me

Bath, England

Any guided tours that were successful and educational?

I want a 10 day tour (bus or train), with less London and more northern England, with a focus on literary figures like Bronte. Anybody have any information about this?

Hi Joyce,

I'm not sure such a tour, for 10 days exists?

I know there are a few companies that run literary tours but they are normally a few days only.  I have in the past look into http://www.lynotttours.com/b-lit.htm but never actually booked due to scheduling conflicts.

One thing you may consider is planning a few base cities to travel to by train (the network from London is great) and then take a few days tour from each town.  If you are looking to visit the north of England, the York is a great place to start in.

Your question is tagged with 'Bath' which is in the southwest though.  You can easily begin a bus a tour from London to Bath (usually associated with Jane Austen) or take a train to Bath and start a tour directly from there.

There are also some great country walking tours which I am sure could take a literary twist.  I really the guys at http://foottrails.co.uk and I know they have a Bath & Avon tour... albeit not sure about how literary it gets.

If you are undecided and don't know in detail what you want to do, perhaps a good place to start is to contact Visit Britain http://www.visitbritain.com/en/EN/ for some guidance.

Hope this helps...
