- Paul's Vision for this Tour: I love taking my travelers off the major tourist routes as I help them discover the UK and Ireland. Northumberland and County Durham are areas we often speed straight through as we travel south from Scotland into England, yet they are rich with their own unique borderland history, legends and culture as well as beautiful coastal scenery. Your time spent exploring this region will add so much to the overall story of this classic Edinburgh to London tour. And what a story it is! Tales of and by kings and queens, marauding Viking invaders, revered saints, philosophers, poets, artists and writers—all have left their mark on “this scepter'd isle” and await your visit.
