If you fancy a six-night escorted vacation across Great Britain. CIE Tours International is now accepting bookings for their 2011 Olde England & Heritage Tour.

And if you book by October 31st, this year, and pay for the tour up front, their “Book Early and Save” policy will save you 10 percent on all your on the over-land charges.  But you need to book and pay twelve months in advance.

Alternatively, you can book eight to nine months in advance and get 5 percent off, or ten to eleven months early and save 7 percent on the tour charges. (This does not save money off your flight costs.)

The Olde England & Heritage Tour will have you visiting Castle Howard (used for the TV series Brideshead Revisited) and Stirling Castle (used in the movie, Braveheart). Then, you will go see Beatrix Potter’s delightful Lake District, and the rolling hillsides of Bronte Country.
