Cathedral and Theatre in England

This tour was designed for a college group led by the theatre and religious studies professors and was a great success.
It is basically a great introduction to England with emphasis, as the name of the tour suggests, on visits to England's great cathedrals and places of interest to theatre lovers.
Highlights that other operators often do not include are the acting workshop at the Globe where you get to act on stage with a professional actor, the backstage tours including prop rooms and wardrobes and the make-up demonstration where one group member had an axe wound put in his forehead.
