In London, popular tourist attractions are transformed by the new perspective. Literary highlights of the itinerary include Nottingham Castle, William Shakespeares birthplace (Stratford Upon Avon), the moors of Lorna Doone, the sites of Chaucers Canterbury Tales, Jane Austens romantic landscapes, and more; sports enthusiasts will thrill to a centre court experience at Wimbledon; and royal watchers enjoy a kings ransom of castles.
