En­joy this UK tour with a dif­fer­ence

The Western Star - - Escape -

SOME very in­ter­est­ing places in Bri­tain are not open to the gen­eral pub­lic.

Many pri­vate homes, farms and clubs are only ac­ces­si­ble by prior appointmen­t.

Tours­gallery has cre­ated a 22-day tour through Eng­land, Scot­land and Wales that in­cludes spe­cial vis­its that are not in­cluded on any other tour.

Vin­tage cars, an­tique ma­chin­ery, trac­tors, trucks and steam trains are all featured on this small group tour in Au­gust.

Meet pri­vate col­lec­tors, re­stor­ers and mu­seum cu­ra­tors who are keep­ing his­tory alive.

“Many of the in­ven­tions that make our life so easy to­day were born out of the In­dus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion,” Ken Osetroff, di­rec­tor of Tours­gallery, said.

“How we now travel, farm and live are all re­lated to places that guests will see on this tour.” Trains, planes and au­to­mo­biles will fea­ture along with canals, boats, in­dus­trial and farm­ing equip­ment.

A highlight of the tour will be two full days at The Great Dorset Steam Fair, the world’s big­gest coun­try fair and vin­tage ma­chin­ery rally.

Ox­ford, York, Ffes­tin­iog Rail­way, Iron Bridge Gorge and Whitby, from where Cap­tain Cook set sail for Aus­tralia, will all be part of this tour.

Cas­tles and mu­se­ums will be vis­ited as well as quaint old stone vil­lages, tran­quil lakes, ro­man­tic ru­ral land­scapes and fa­mous must-see sights.

This 22-day es­corted tour starts Au­gust 5 and is priced at $13,880 per per­son land only.
