Summary
 
Beginning in London with the Harry Potter Experience and Dr. Who sites, the tour will then move to Oxford, site of the famous Inklings gatherings which included J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis at the Eagle and Child pub.  Lyra Belacqua's Tour of Oxford from Phillip Pullman's The Golden Compass will finish the stay in Oxford, then the group will travel west along southern England, touring sites made famous by the legends of King Arthur--Stonehenge, Cadbury Castle, and the White Horse Vale.  Then in Cardiff, students will enjoy Carleon Castle, a famous King Arthur site, and afterwards move north through Wales, visiting locations that inspired Tolkien when describing Middle Earth in The Lord of the Rings.  Mount Snowden in northeast Wales, famous for its connection to King Arthur, completes the western section of the course tour.  Then the group will move across northern England to visit sites along Hadrian's Wall, also famous for its King Arthur legends.  In Edinburgh, Scotland, students will see where J.K. Rowling wrote much of the first Harry Potter novel, and then students will walk the streets and alleys that inspired Robert Louis Stevenson to write The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.  From Edinburgh the tour will head back south to Whitby, an important location for Bram Stoker's novel Dracula.  In York, they will visit more King Arthur-themed locations, and then travel south to Stratford-Upon-Avon, the home of William Shakespeare, author of the highly influential fantasy play A Midsummer Night's Dream. The tour will then conclude with a return to London for the flight home to the U.S.
