1) What kind of weather can I expect in England in mid June?
Average daytime temperatures in June range from mid-60’s to low-80’s, but it can get cool in the late evenings and night. Rain is fairly frequent at this time so participants are encouraged to bring a lightweight, waterproof jacket or a small umbrella.
2) Can I arrive before or remain after the sojourn?
Yes. If you would like to arrive at the start location in advance or remain at the end location after the sojourn has concluded, Scholarly Sojourns can help you arrange your hotel accommodation and is often able to secure attractive rates. Please indicate these preferences to us after you have registered for a particular sojourn.
3) How much walking will be required on this sojourn?
While we do take part in a couple of walking tours, this is not a particularly physically intensive sojourn. That being said, all participants should be comfortable walking up to a mile at a time and capable of climbing up to two flights of stairs at a time.
4) I am a single traveler, can you help me find a roommate?
Scholarly Sojourns will do all we can to match single travelers with a suitable roommate if they desire. But we cannot guarantee that roommates will be available. Therefore all single travelers should register as such and be prepared to pay the single traveler rate should a roommate not be identified.
5) Is this sojourn appropriate for children?
This sojourn is not appropriate for children. Young adults, however, will find the program quite enjoyable, and they may find it gets them extra credit in their English Literature class.
