Always Drink Upstream from the Herd
 
 
Get out more. Get out of London. Get out and walk. Get out of the coach. Get out of the motorway rut. Get out of the tourism equivalent of factory farming.
 
You can now.
 
Yes. At last. An alternative.
 
Do you need me to elaborate? Or can we just crack on? 
 
Read below the dotted if you want me to elaborate. Go here if you just want to crack on.
 
---------------------------
 
An alternative because we don't go by coach and motorway. We go by train. It's fastly superior! Much quicker. Much more comfortable. Much easier on your pocketbook. It's, well, streets ahead!
 
And sure enough, what, er, follows on from that, is a much better time when you get there. A better time because you've got more time there and because we explore these places on foot. Our attitude to "industrialised tourism" is yukh. We don't conveyor belt you. We go for a walk with you. Boy, is that different And better. World of difference better.
 
 
And as for what's on the menu...
 
We do a Great Escape – a Day Trip – virtually every day of our Summer* programme.
 
Every other Monday (through September 28) we go to Cambridge. And there's a "moveable feast" on the non-Cambridge Mondays – i.e. there's a different destination every alternate Monday.
 
Every Tuesday (through October 13) we go to Stonehenge & Salisbury.
 
Every Wednesday (through October 14) we go to Oxford & the Cotswolds.
 
Thursdays (from May 7 through September 24) we go to Bath.
 
 
And as for the weekend, well, it's the "Moveable Feast" every Saturday. I.E. a different destination every Saturday right throughout the summer. (Indeed, right throughout the year. Which is by way of saying, in our Winter programme – which runs from November 1 through April 30 – it's also a "Moveable Feast" every Saturday.)
 
And Sundays? Well, on many Sundays in mid-summer we go to The Cotswolds. And there's a couple of Sunday trips to St. Albans – both of them timed to catch St. Albans' once-a-month Farmers' Market!

*The Summer 2015 London Walks programme runs from May 1st through October 31st. But never fear, London Walks operates 365 days a year. And, yes, we do Day Trips in the Winter programme. Not as many, though, as in the summer. In the Winter we normally run one every Saturday and a bunch of them on selected dates over the Christmas period and come the vernal season (the Spring).
