London. Oxford. Hinckley. Bath.
Franklin Health's 2023 Study Tour of England
The Trip Begins In...
On the first full day of the trip, you'll become a student at the prestigious Oxford University. Nestled in this City of Spires is the Osler McGovern Centre, a long-time academic home of medical students, physicians, scientists, and other healers. You'll follow in this rich tradition learning more about the scientific evidence of botanical medicine in the past, present, and future.
Tuesday's stop in Hinckley provides not only the opportunity to learn aromaflexology at the renowned Penny Price Academy, but also a step back in time to a quaint and traditional English village. You'll stay in a comfortable English cottage and enjoy a "Full English" breakfast before a day packed with a fragrant learning experience.
Our trip concludes in Bath, a town first established by the Romans as a thermal spa in the first century AD. This town became the hub of all that is fashionable in the Georgian era, recognized for its health-promoting benefits, and is now recognized as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. While in Bath, you'll benefit from this healing tradition by pampering yourself in the thermae spa, expanding your culinary repertoire, and enhancing your knowledge of traditional well-being.

The week begins Sunday at 1pm London time with a walking tour through the sites of some of the most noteworthy events in health history.
