Tour Routes in England
When you travel to England, the main thing to remember is that although there are a tremendous number of interesting things to see and experience, distances are relatively short. This means that it's quite possible to make quick detours "off-course" (or even across the country) without wrecking your tour schedule.
The tour route below encompasses most of the tourist attractions covered by commercial Europe tours of England and Wales, and I've added a few areas that are not visited but should be, like Robin Hood's Bay and Great Tew.
However, it would take at least 21 days to do this and that does not allow for much rest (and excludes London). So the real question is whether you want to concentrate more on a particular area, eg the South, or take a "highlights view" of the lot. As you'll notice, tour companies don't tell you what you're missing as they drive past, so it's up to you to decide which tour offers you the most attractive options.
