From quaint cottage hideaways in the Cotswolds to London’s centuries of cheek-by-jowl history and seaside getaways in East Anglia – a luxury vacation in England is about as quintessential as it comes. We may be biased, but there is an inescapable sense of pride to be found on these shores. A place where we have built up quite the little black book over the years. Let us show you our England.

England Highlights

Wine and dine like the aristocracy of old, shop till you drop in London’s glossy boutiques or hook yourself a trout supper in the rolling green of the countryside. From breweries to castles, city bustle to countryside bliss, discover the best of Royal England.
Keswick, Lake District


Things are fine in the ‘land of hope and glory.’ More than fine. From delectable tasting tours of the wild Lake District with famed chef Simon Rogan, to a charming stay at London’s Browns Hotel – one of the country’s most prestigious spots. With Black Tomato, we’ll show you England as we know it; from dramatic Downtown Abbey to easygoing Cornish seaside culture.

Roman baths in Bath


It may be a small country, but England packs a big punch when it comes to regality and splendor, making it one of our favorite places to flaunt our knowledge of all things luxury. Tours including one of the world’s greatest cities, beaches that look like they belong in the tropics, and centuries old towns bursting with charm and personality are just a few of the things a tailormade tour of England will introduce you to.


London has a number of well-known and distinctive neighborhoods. Notting Hill is known for its colorful facades and that 1990’s movie, Soho for its extensive history and now for its delicious dining scene, and Shoreditch for its eclectic and youthful feel. Mayfair, however, exudes copious amounts of luxury, and this west-end neighborhood is one of our favorites for just that. After all, Mayfair was the most expensive property in the first version of Monopoly – and not much has changed since.

Bedruthan Steps, Cornwall


If London is for high tea and afternoons at Kensington Palace, then a trip to the south of England was made for fresh oysters, surf breaks, and coastal sunsets. Google Cornwall and you’ll see what we mean – bays of bright blue water similar to that of the Carribean, fishing villages that look delightfully untouched, and coastal pathways that deliver dramatic views and a sense of tranquility. Together, an itinerary incorporating both London and Cornwall makes for a well-rounded and exciting introduction to England.

Simon Rogan, Tasting Notes


At Black Tomato, we feel diving headfirst into a local cuisine can speak volumes for the culture, heritage, and symbolism of a country. England is no exception. For a country often reduced to fish and chips, we’re eager to show travelers the true magic behind the culinary scene of this vast and diverse country, with the help of critically acclaimed chef Simon Rogan. Traversing through London, Hampshire, and the Lake District, our custom itinerary will see you exploring local markets, indulging in private meals in the countryside, and basking in the Michelin-starred experiences of London.

Luxury hotels in The Cotswolds


England has got it all. The penthouses of the city, the charming manors of the countryside, and the beach boutiques perched down the path from the local pub. It’s a country that displays its personality through its hospitality, therefore it’s no easy task to determine the best of the best. Lucky for our travelers, we’ve got a pretty good grip on what makes this country special, and we know a thing or two about its best kept secrets - including hotels.

Dover's Hill, Cotswolds


Few things are as quintessentially English as an old-world farmhouse delicately converted into a luxury estate, and the Cotswolds have done this with effortless ease. A stylish rural retreat is something this region has perfected and the romantic properties are a testament to the soothing lifestyle found northwest of London. All things English elegance are displayed through picturesque cottages, private gardens, world-class spas, and some of the country's most celebrated restaurants.

Luxury hotels in England


Trade in the shiny chandeliers adorning Mayfair for the sounds of the sea on the Cornish coast. With miles of whitesand stretches and a vast array of outdoors activities at hand, a retreat down south is considered incomplete without a stay at a beachside boutique that ensures the best the region has to offer. Bask in the soothing sounds of the lapping waters from your hotel balcony and watch the sun retreat over the water from a homely and sophisticated five-star hotel.
