of the Bath Abbey. There's lots to discover in the exceptional Wiltshire County!
Liverpool (The Beatles Tour)
Liverpool has so much as a major city in the UK; from food to culture and, of course, football.
But, perhaps what still makes it stand-out is the incredible legacy of the Fab Four otherwise known as The Beatles!
VIVA Trips begin your adventure with a 2hr tour of the Beatles' legacy including stops at Penny Lane, Strawberry and
finishing at Cavern Club; the venue where they were discovered. You will also get free time to tour the rest of the city on your own.
The idyllic town of Cambridge is famous for its University and historic architecture. VIVA Trips will be including tours
of Cambridge University’s colleges as well the beautiful town. You can also take up a guided tour on its punting
like in Venice, Italy (not included in the price). VIVA Trip’s tour will also include visits to the Mathematical
Bridge and the most accurate clock in the world (Corpus Clock) designed and inaugurated by Stephen Hawking.
Nottingham (Robin Hood Tour)
This comprehensive tour will include the wider county of Nottinghamshire and not just Nottingham.
First up, will be Sherwood Forest, home of Robin Hood and the famous Oak Tree, believed to be 800 years old
and from where Robin Hood launched his attacks on rich traders travelling through the county. Then on to Wollaton Hall,
home of Batman! This is where the opening scene of the film Batman: The Dark Knight Rises was filmed and the Park
surrounding the Hall features some of the most beautiful creatures you will ever see - antler deer. The tour ends in the city
centre where we visit the oldest pub in England (Ye Olde Jerusalem) and the Robin Hood statue.
Oxford, and its oldest University, have produced more British Prime Ministers and leaders than any other University!
On this VIVA Trip, you’ll have a guided tour of the Colleges that make up this iconic institution, after which you’ll
have free time to explore the rest of the town on your own.
The works of William Shakespeare are studied all over the world and have been interpreted and performed
in several languages across different continents. Stratford-upon-Avon is Shakespeare's hometown. The town
was the inspiration for much of his work, as well as the place where he spent his formative years, went to
school and is buried. The tour begins at his school, after which you can head over to Holy Trinity Church where
he is buried. Other optional attractions include; Shakespeare's Birthplace and the Royal Shakespeare Company
theatre where legendary actors like Judi Dench, Laurence Olivier and David Oyewolo have performed.
Snowdonia is one of the UK's largest expanse of land located in the north of Wales. There are very few places in
Europe with a more stunning landscape, and this trip ensures you get the perfect view of not just the famous
mount Snowdon, but also other landmarks that define the area. The VIVA Trips tour begins at Conwy Castle and
then to the pier where we get to explore the smallest house in Britain and finally to the mountains.
