Touring will be at a casual pace, beginning around 9:30am each day and ending by 4:30pm allowing time to relax and explore the local area before dinner. Arrangements will be finalized by the end of February when we know how many will be taking this trip. The planned cost for the trip will be $2,950 per person (plus $765 for single occupancy) including hotels, breakfast and dinner, local transportation and tour admission fees.  The location of the gala farewell dinner may necessitate a slight increase to the cost.  As participants may be departing from different airports and travelling to and from England on different days, transportation will be left to the individual to arrange but can be provided through our travel agent for an additional fee.  Alcoholic beverages, lunch, transportation to/from airports, travel insurance, porterage and tips are NOT included.


As September is a favorite travel month in England, we need to complete reservations by April 30th in order to lock in hotels. To reserve your space, please send your non-refundable deposit of $600 per person with your reservation. The balance will be due by May 30th.  Please note whether you will require one or two beds in your hotel accommodations. 


Although this is not a JCNA sponsored event, participation in this trip is extended to other Jaguar clubs in JCNA and will be limited to 26 individuals.
