Discover the UK and Ireland

England’s long and glorious heritage can be seen in the country’s wealth of stately homes, castles, palaces and monuments. Home to Chaucer, Shakespeare, Dickens and Jane Austen, amongst many others, the country’s literary heritage stretches back centuries. The golden rural past can still be found in the traditional village greens, winding country lanes and ancient woodlands, whilst seaside resorts hark back to the heyday of English holiday town and cities have historic sights standing side-by-side with contemporary landmarks.

Scotland is a land of contrasts, with hundreds of islands, magnificent mountains and beautiful lochs. This peaceful landscape belies the country’s turbulent past, and the abundance of ancient castles bears testament to the country’s gripping history. Glasgow and Edinburgh are centres of innovative art, design and music, with top-class museums and galleries. Scottish traditions include social ceilidhs, the Highland Games and of course the Highland Dress with kilt and sporran.

The ancient symbol of Wales, the red dragon, can be seen on flags flying all over the country as this is a nation fiercely proud of its heritage. And you can see why the Welsh are justly proud of their country with its dramatic mountains, grand castles and long stretches of golden sandy beaches. On the coast craggy cliffs tower over the turbulent seas, irresistible harbour towns nestle in sandy bays and the Wales Coast Path traces the entire Welsh coastline. Further inland magical waterfalls cascade in fairytale valleys, glacial lakes shimmer in the mountains and traditional market towns offer their own unique charm.

Northern Ireland is a country of dramatic rural scenery, pretty villages and cosmopolitan cities including Belfast with its thriving arts scene. Giant's Causeway is a geological wonder with 40,000 hexagonal basalt stone columns built by ancient warring giants according local legends. The Republic of Ireland is home to prehistoric Iron Age forts, ruined monasteries and ancient castles, whilst lively cities such as Cork and Dublin combine vibrant pub culture with everlasting Celtic traditions. The Wild Atlantic Way takes in the Ring of Kerry and Inishowen Penisula and showcases Ireland’s most stunning scenery.


Highlights of UK and Ireland

  • London

    London is one of the world's most visited cities, with instantly recognisable landmarks including Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London and The Shard. Top-class museums such as Tate Modern, the Natural History Museum and the V&A Museum attract millions of visitors a year. Follow in the footsteps of royalty at Buckingham Palace or relax in Hyde Park, a vast open space that was once used as a hunting ground by Henry VIII. London is a shopper’s paradise, from lively flea markets and vintage shops to the luxury collections in Harrods and Selfridges. To the west of London lie the mystical ancient monoliths of Stonehenge, Britain’s most iconic archaeological site.

  • Lake District

    The Lake District is the UK's most popular national park thanks to its dramatic mountains, glistening lakes and pretty stone-built villages such as Ambleside, Windermere and Bowness which all nestle on the shores of Lake Windermere. It’s a paradise for lovers of the great outdoors with ample opportunities for fell walking and watersports. Many writers have found inspiration here over the centuries including Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, Arthur Ransome and Beatrix Potter whose house at Hill Top is a time capsule of her life and work.

  • Bath

    One of the most beautiful cities in the UK, Bath’s wide range of architectural treasures has earned it UNESCO World Heritage status. Bath owes its name to the famous hot springs which have been revered for centuries, as can be seen in the well-preserved Roman bathhouses. Bath was most fashionable as a spa town in the 18th century and the city is home to elegant crescents, Regency townhouses and honey-coloured Georgian buildings including the Circus and iconic Royal Crescent. Jane Austen lived here in the early 1800s and used the city as a setting for her novels Persuasion and Northanger Abbey.

  • Edinburgh

    Perched on a series of extinct volcanoes and rocky hills overlooking the sea, Edinburgh is a cosmopolitan and cultured city with a beautiful medieval Old Town. Highlights include the fairytale Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat, the Royal Mile and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Edinburgh is famous for worldwide for its arts festival and has been named a World City of Literature by UNESCO due to its famous authors including J M Barrie and Robert Louis Stevenson. The exciting National Museum of Scotland is home to over 20,000 of Scotland’s most fascinating artefacts, while the National Gallery of Scotland and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art house some of Scotland’s finest collections of paintings.

  • Scottish Highlands & Islands

    The Highlands and Islands of Scotland offer untouched landscapes, secluded beaches, far-flung islands and heather-clad moorlands. Historic castles tower over lochs and glens, and mountain passes echo to the sound of ancient clan battles. Prehistoric standing stones and archaeological sites in the Orkney, Shetland and Hebridean Islands tell the story of over 6,000 years of human history on these remote archipelagos. Many tours feature trips to local distilleries to sample a wee dram and learn more about how whisky is produced.

  • Wales

    The lively capital of Wales, Cardiff, has many attractions, from the extravagant Cardiff Castle and superb National Museum, to the iconic Millennium Stadium and contemporary Millennium Centre. It is Wales’ stunning scenery that is the biggest draw for visitors, with the towering mountains of Snowdonia National Park, tumbling waterfalls and glittering lakes of the Brecon Beacons and Pembrokeshire’s dramatic coast and breathtaking beaches. Wales is often referred to as the Land of Castles, with hundreds of medieval castles dotted all over the country.

  • Galway

    Galway is Ireland at its wildest and most beautiful, particularly along the stunning Connemara Peninsula where the coastline is studded with islands, dazzling white sandy beaches and captivating villages and further inland, glassy lakes nestle between craggy mountains and isolated valleys. The windswept Aran Islands offer a glimpse into Irish life of centuries past with prehistoric clifftop forts and ancient Celtic churches. Energetic Galway City is one of Ireland’s most picturesque cities, with colourful buildings curving around Galway Bay. Galway is known as the City of Festivals, with an arts festival in July that attracts thousands of people to the city, and many literary and music events throughout the year.

  • Cork

    The enchanting county of Cork is a lush landscape scattered with pretty old fishing villages, magnificent islands and lovely Blue Flag beaches. Steeped in history, Cork City’s main attractions are the triple-spired French-gothic Cathedral, the Shandon Steeple and the imposing Cork City Gaol. No visit to Cork would be complete without a trip to Blarney Castle where tradition says those who kiss the Blarney Stone will receive the gift of eloquence.

  • Dublin

    Dublin is a living museum of history, packed full of medieval castles, handsome Georgian squares and historic buildings including the prestigious Trinity College. The National Gallery and National Museum are home to compelling works of Irish art and exhibits on Irish history, and the city has been named a UNESCO City of Literature in recognition of its literary excellence. Sample famous Irish hospitality at one of the traditional pubs in Temple Bar, or enjoy a drink and a tour at the Guinness Brewery and Jameson distillery, birthplace of Irish whiskey.
