Later, stroll through the medieval city of York and the famous “Shambles,” a quaint, narrow street that appears today almost as it did during the Middle Ages. Here you’ll find great shopping and a street that is so narrow in parts that you can almost reach both sides with your outstretched arms. A visit is included to the magnificent 13th-century York Minster, one of the finest medieval cathedrals in all of Europe. Today breakfast and dinner will be included.

Your evening is at leisure to sample one of Edinburgh’s fine restaurants and perhaps take an evening stroll through Princes Street Gardens to view the illuminated castle above you. Today breakfast will be included.

Day 7: Edinburgh - Lake District, England - Wales
Your final stop in Scotland is at the border town of Gretna Green where generations of runaway couples came to be married. Here you will discover what it means to be married “over an anvil.” Later today return to England and travel through the picturesque English Lake District. In the heart of the Lake District, visit the charming village of Grasmere, home of the poet William Wordsworth. End your day with an overnight stay in beautiful Ruthin Castle situated in the north of Wales.
