  • Trip Itinerary

    Day 1: Depart USA for London, England.

    Day 2: Arrive in England. G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) was an English writer, poet, and journalist, and one of the dominating literary figures in England during the early twentieth century. He was incredibly prolific. Chesterton wrote over 4,000 newspaper essays, 100 books (contributing to 200 more), hundreds of poems (including the epic Ballad of the White Horse), five plays, five novels, and some two hundred short stories, including the detective mysteries featuring Father Brown (the basis for the popular Father Brown series on BBC.) Chesterton converted to Catholicism in 1922, perhaps the most famous convert of the twentieth century, and is responsible for leading countless others into the Church. St. Paul’s Cathedral - St. Paul's Churchyard, London EC4M 8AD, UK. This large, domed Anglican church looks like a mini-St. Peter’s Basilica and can be seen from all over London. Chesterton knew this church well, and visited many times. It was the setting for his novel, The Ball and Cross, named after the ball and cross atop the church’s dome. The Cheshire Cheese Pub - 5 Little Essex St, Temple, London WC2R 3LD, UK. Dinner and overnight in London. Not to be confused with Ye Olde Chesire Cheese Puub, this pub is just across the street from the former G.K’s Weekly offices and is where Chesterton did a lot of his writing from 1925-1936. Dinner and overnight in London.

    Day 3: We start our morning with Mass at Westminster Cathedral, the Catholic Cathedral of London, we will then enjoy a panoramic tour of London which will include views of Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Piccadilly. We will stop to see the changing of the guard ceremony (if held) and then continue to tour the tower of London. We continue to tour the Tower of London where Thomas More was imprisoned in the Bell Tower for more than a year for refusing to swear to the Act of Succession and the Oath of Supremacy. He was found guilty of treason and beheaded on Tower Hill. His final words were, "The King’s good servant, but God’s First". Fleet Street - Ye Old Cheshire Cheese Pub - 145 Fleet St, London EC4A 2BU, UK. Chesterton frequented many pubs in London. He especially liked the Fleet Street pubs, which hosted the city's top writers, poets, and artists. Ye Old Chesire Cheese was among the more popular stops, and Chesterton was a regular there. GKC's Birthplace - 32 Sheffield Terrace, Kensington, London, UK. Chesterton was born in this home and lived here from ages 0 to 5 years old. It's where he first delighted in the toy theater his father built for him, beginning a lifelong fascination with puppets, plays, and small figurines. The White Hart - The White Hart, Aylesbury End, Beaconsfield HP9 1LW, UK. During the Chestertons' first visit to Beaconsfield, they stayed at The White Hart Inn, which offered both lodging and a pub. When they later moved to Beaconsfield, Gilbert frequented the pub. St. Teresa’s Catholic Church - 40 Warwick Rd, Beaconsfield HP9 2PL, UK. When the Chestertons first moved to Beaconsfield in 1909, there was no Catholic Church. That wasn't a huge problem for them since neither Gilbert nor Frances were Catholic at that point. However, even after their conversion, it was a while before they had a church. Local Catholics were forced to meet for Mass in the backroom of a hotel near the railway stop. It wasn’t until 1926 that the community raised enough funds to build their first Catholic parish. The G.K. Chesterton Library – Due to open fall 2020. The University of Notre Dame’s campus in London has acquired the entire collection, with plans to create a new permanent, public exhibition in their space near Trafalgar Square in London. Dinner & overnight in London.

    Day 4: C.S. Lewis - C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the most popular writers of the twentieth century, and the greatest Christian apologist. He wrote around 40 books in several different genres, including the Chronicles of Narnia series, his sci-fi Ransom Trilogy, and several books on Christian theology such as Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters. The Kilns - Lewis Cl, Oxford OX3 8JD, UK. This was C.S. Lewis's home for most of his adult life, from 1930-1963, and the place where he died. The house itself is charming, and the surrounding area is lush and beautiful. A six-acre "C. S. Lewis Nature Reserve" now sits next to the house, a tranquil woodland with pathways and a large pond. (Note: tours are held by private appointment and only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. So plan accordingly.) The Eagle and Child Pub (aka The Bird and Baby) - 49 St Giles', Oxford OX1 3LU, UK. The famous Oxford pub where the Inklings met for beer and camaraderie throughout the 1930s and 1940s. It was also a literary incubator where they could read aloud the books they were working on. This pub is where C.S. Lewis first shared his Chronicles of Narnia and J.R.R. Tolkien his Lord of the Rings. Other famous Inklings include Owen Barfield, Charles Williams, Hugo Dyson, Nevil Coghill, Warnie Lewis (C.S. Lewis' brother), and numerous other regulars and guests. Magdalen College (Oxford University) - Magdalen College, Oxford OX1 4AU, UK. C.S. Lewis was elected tutor at Oxford's Magdalen College (pronounced "Mawd-lin") in 1925 and remained there for nearly thirty years, teaching English and writing his many books. Addison’s Walk - Magdalen College, Oxford OX1 4AU, UK. Circling around Magdalen College, this walking path is best known as the place where C.S. Lewis first became convinced that Christianity might actually be true. It happened on September 20, 1931. Lewis, at the time a deist, joined friends J.R.R. Tolkien and Hugo Dyson, both Christians, for a walk after dinner. Holy Trinity Church (Lewis' Church + Grave) - 46 Quarry Rd, Oxford OX3 8NU, UK. After Lewis' conversion to Christianity, he worshipped at Holy Trinity Church for the rest of his life, a charming, small parish not far from the Kilns. This is also where he is buried. J.R.R. Tolkien- John Ronald Reuel (J.R.R.) Tolkien (1892–1973) was an English writer, poet, philologist, and scholar, who is best known as the author of the classic fantasy works The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion. He was also a deeply devout Catholic and, for many years, a professor of English Language and Literature at Oxford University who specialized in Anglo-Saxon literature. Sarehole Mill - Cole Bank Rd, Birmingham B13 0BD, UK. Tolkien was born in South Africa in 1892, but after his father died in 1895, the Tolkiens moved to Sarehole Mill, a small village near Birmingham. It's where the young Tolkien spent most of his boyhood. John and his younger brother, Hilary, explored the forests and bogs, dreaming up fairy tales. Sarehole Mill used to be a very rural area but is now all built up. They’ve restored the 18th-century working mill and added a Victorian bakehouse and a nice little Tolkien museum. If you go, be sure to visit the nearby Moseley Bog, a favorite hangout of the young Tolkien. Ss. Gregory and Augustine’s Catholic Church - 322 Woodstock Rd, Oxford OX2 7NS, UK. This is the church where J.R.R. Tolkien and his family worshipped. They attended Mass here regularly, always sitting in the front right pew. Dinner and overnight.
