For the trip of a lifetime, England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland are amazing destinations – from the unspoilt Scottish landscape and the buzzing streets of London, to the quaint country villages. You can have a truly unforgettable adventure.
Rich in heritage and history, Britain & Ireland is a tapestry of cultures and tastes. A holiday to Britain and Ireland will give you a fair dose of history, mixed in equal parts with fun and humour, nature and discovery.
In many ways England has quite a familiar feel about it. With so much to see and do, you’ll feel right at home. London, one of the most exciting cities in the world, has an absolutely fascinating history and some of the richest culture in Europe. If it’s nightlife you’re after, London has some great pubs and world-famous bars to experience.
Take a trip out of London to discover the English countryside’s breathtaking beauty and historic cities. Enjoy historic regional cities like Bath and Stratford upon Avon, or venture to the north country’s moors and lakes. Stroll through lush green fields in the heartland, and eat real ‘bangers and mash’ in front of a wood fire. Brighton Beach’s colourful beach umbrellas and fish and chips on Brighton Pier are a typical English experience.
Scotland has an almost magical quality about it. Its dramatic landscape features deep lochs, soaring peaks, heather-clad moorlands and rugged coastal scenery. You’ll see distinctive Scottish icons, wherever you go. Glasgow and Edinburgh are both popular destinations, renowned for their vibrancy and amazing historical architecture. Listen out for bagpipes and buy some tartan while you’re there. The Scottish Highlands are one of Europe’s last expanses of untamed wilderness, where you can visit ancient abbeys, castles and spectacular rugged coastlines and fishing villages.
This is a country of stunning contrasts. Apart from the fantastic walking and cycling, there’s a wealth of water and adventure sports. Add to this some fine festivals and Cardiff’s nightlife, and you have a great destination awaiting you. Cardiff, the Welsh capital, is small enough to be friendly, but big enough to entertain. Cardiff’s patriotic sporting events and nonstop nightlife are at the heart of what this city has to offer. Stroll around the many pretty parklands, gardens and cobbled streets and enjoy a relaxing ale in one of the many historic taverns.
You won’t forget a trip to Ireland to be sure! The Irish landscape, said to be 40 shades of green, is sprinkled with gorgeous thatched cottages everywhere you go. There’s an abundance of beautiful scenic walking tracks and little villages to discover. In the land of music and Guinness, you can enjoy both with the ever-present Irish hospitality and the warm hearted nature of the locals.
