The Acorn TV and Transcendent team will be with you every step of the way to help make connections between
our tour stops and the great British programs you’ve become fans of on Acorn TV. We’ll have a couple of special “behind-the-scenes” moments planned, including a visit with a cast member(s) of some of your favorite Acorn programs. We’ll also have a special surprise guest meet us at Agatha Christie’s summer home, The Greenway Estate.
In addition, guests will be staying at some sumptuous hotels, exploring lavish homes and gardens and enjoying fine dining along the way.
In our book, traveling is about creating a blend of unique experiences, paired with delicious meals and superior accommodations. In this tour you can be assured of all three – alongside our personal touches and attention to detail which will ensure your enjoyment of the experience.
We do hope you’ll join us for one of these remarkable England tours in July 2018!
Here are a couple of guest reviews from travelers that joined us for the Best of Acorn TV tour in 2017!
“The Best of Acorn TV was more than just a tour, it was a sneak peak into Agatha Christie’s dressing room, chatting with TV personalities, hoisting a beer at the Black Swan and eating scones with a well known author, or two. Always accessible and responsive, Andrew [Lannerd] knows the landscape and shared his passion, while handling all the details. Acorn TV provided tremendous support, lining up talent the rest of the world only sees on their TV. So much to see and do with a congenial group that held similar interests. My husband and I say “jolly good” and thank you!” -Barbara Lohr
“Recently toured the sites of many of our favorite British TV shows with Acorn TV and Andrew [Lannerd] who was the best host ever with the comfort and well being of every guest on the tour foremost in his mind. He did a great job of handling all the logistics and making sure everyone was cared for. We enjoyed meeting many of the actors from Doc Martin, Midsomer Murders, and Agatha Raisin, all were a true treat to share tea with and discuss the shows. A very, memorable trip thanks to Andrew!!” – Ron Holmes
