TOUR TO BRITAIN


| November/December 1967


R. 4, Elwood Indiana

No doubt your readers are anxious to know how the group from the Elwood Historical Club of Elwood, Indiana, got along on their tour to Britain. As we arrived home on July 5, it was too late to give the report for the September-October issue.

We left New York on the evening of June 20 and arrived at Prestwick, Scotland, the next morning, June 21, Our special coach met us at the airport and in a few miles we were visiting the birthplace of Robbie Burns at Ayr. From there we toured through the beautiful midlands of Scotland and spent the rest of the day as guests of the 'Scottish Royal Highland Fair' held each year at Ingles ton. That night we were guests of the North British Hotel on Princess Street, Edinburgh.

I will not go into too much detail of our trip until we get to the Steam Fair and Engine Rally, but we spent two nights in Edinburgh, three nights at Aviemore, beyond Royal Deeside visited Inverness and Culloden Moor Lock Ness (did not see the monster) and spent two wonderful days in Glasgow.



We flew from Glasgow to London by B.E.A. where we spent 6 nights at Mount Royal Hotel near Hyde Park. On Thursday a full day tour of London and on Friday a full day tour of Windsor Castle, Stokes Poges, Hampton Court, Eton College. Again space will not permit the details.

Well, on Saturday morning at 8 A.M. our special coach met us at our hotel and we were on our way to the Cropredy Steam Fair and Engine Rally at Banbury, which is about 50 miles northwest of London. Our day's tour included the Engine Rally, Stratford upon Avon, the 'Shakespeare Country' and beautiful Old Warwick Castle.
