Overview

Barton College is pleased to announce “Downton Abbey and the Best of England,” departing on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 and returning to the U.S. on Friday, April 25, 2014. Our adventure begins with a visit to Highclere Castle, the setting for the popular television series Downtown Abbey. Our trip will take us to wonderful places like Oxford, Blenheim Palace, Bath, Wessex, Bampton-in-the-Bush, Glastonbury, Salisbury, Chawton, and, of course, London.

England is a fascinating country with a long, rich history that continues to intrigue visitors. In its earliest days the country was a consistent target for invasion and occupied by the Celts, Romans, Angles, Saxons, and Normans, all of whom left distinctive marks on the national identity. Over the centuries, its people have made a significant impact throughout the world in trade, colonization, religion, literature, art, and industry. No amount of time here ever seems enough to fully experience all that the country has to offer.

Barton’s Office of Business Affairs will be handling the deposits for this trip. Your $500 deposit will be due on or before August 31, 2013. To pay by check, please send your payment to:

Overview

Visit the battlegrounds and critical sites of Normandy and follow in our forefathers’ footsteps as they marched toward Paris. Uncover details about Allied leadership at the underground command center where Churchill directed the war. Explore the map room, and then conquer the English Channel by sea and Normandy by foot. Nothing can simulate the invasion, but the shore’s eerie quiet offers as much insight as the expert at your side.
