“Come join us for an exciting trip the UK,” said Debbie Carter of the center. “Our tour highlights include a spectacular tour of the area.

“We are very excited to offer a trip like this for our local residents,” Carter said. “We hope those who have always wanted to explore England and the surrounding area will take the time to go with us. It’s sure to be an exciting time.”

Among the sites on the tour are Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and the Changing of the Guard.

“We’ll also see a spectacular theater performance,” she said. “You will see the 13th Century York Minister, one of the finest medieval cathedrals in Europe. You will get a glimpse at what life is like for the royals during your visit to the Place of Holyroodhouse, the queen’s official residence in Edinburgh and once the home of Mary, Queen of Scots.”

Carter said those who attend, will also take part in a medieval dinner complete with Welsh entertainment.

“Don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime trip,” she said. “Also, people considering going should remember they will need a passport,” she said.

Carter said that anyone age 21 and up is welcome to go on the trip.
