Fun For Less Tours British Isles with Glenn Rawson [00:31]
England is the foundation of our heritage. From it we received our language, our most endearing literature, our freedoms, our sense of humor, and our general outlook on the world. Many of us trace our individual roots to England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland. From Shakespeare to Harry Potter to CS Lewis to King Arthur and his Round Table to Beatrix Potter or Jane Austin, the culture of England continues to shape our world and define our place within it. Its heroes and villains are part of our everyday consciousness. Its castles, cottages, palaces and ancient ruins fire our imagination and haunt our thoughts. Come with us to the sceptered isle as we reminisce of everything from kings to the little people and enjoy the green wonder of Scottish highland lochs, the rocky cliffs of Ireland and the rolling hills of the English countryside and the wild beauty of Wales.
