You can do all those things and more when you join Chancellor and Mrs. Dubois on a spectacular journey through England’s "Storied Past." From Shakespeare to Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland to Jack the Ripper, Cardinal Wolsey to Winston Churchill, the Green and Gold Travelers Society trip to England is scheduled for September 8-16, 2012.

UNC Charlotte’s contingent will follow in the Scepter’d Isle’s footpaths of history with New York Times bestselling novelist and Shakespearian scholar, Dr. Andrew A.J. Hartley, as a guide through London, Oxford and Stratford.

This specially designed program offers a behind-the-scenes guided tour of the reconstructed Globe Theatre, a private workshop with actors from the Royal Shakespeare Company, an evening walk in the footsteps of Jack the Ripper, and excursions to romantic yet haunting places, largely unfrequented by tourists, such as Kenilworth Castle and the Ancient White Horse of Uffington. Several private receptions, a garden party, and lectures by Professor Hartley and Oxford Professor Tiffany Stern make this a unique educational experience that will deepen your understanding of this history-rich country.

Don’t miss this opportunity to wander through England’s past on the roads less travelled. This trip is likely to sell out early, so make your reservations online today, or call 704-687-7755.
