Vacation trip to England, Scotland, Belgium and France in September, 2001

Here are some highlights

London

Days 1 - 2:

Our first two days: the flight over; the walk about Westminster; Prince Albert memorial; watching the Changing of the Guards and the Tower of London. We became tourists of the traditional sort.

Edinburgh

Days 3 - 5:

We boarded the Great Northern Railway and traveled to Edinburgh.  Besides the incredible countryside seen from the train; we toured the city, Holyrood Abbey, Holyrood Palace and the extraordinary Edinburgh Castle.

Day Trips

Days 6 - 8:

Using our Britrail pass, we took three Day Trips.  We visited Bath, Portsmouth Harbor and the Palace of Blenheim outside Oxford.

Ypers, Belgium & Vimy Ridge, France

Days 9 - 11:

A very special part of our vacation.  This was not on the typical tourist  itinerary.

With our guide Tom Morgan (webmaster of Hellfire Corner website) we traveled from Dover to Ypres for a visit to the battlefields and World War One memorials and then down to the Canadian National Monument at Vimy Ridge in France. 

 

London

Days 12 - 13:

The Finale'.  Back in Westminster, we took two days to visit "inside" attractions: Kensington Palace; Westminster Cathedral; the British Museum, St. Paul's Cathedral and the Imperial War Museum.
