You might be fooled in to thinking that we are small in size but we are prodigious in the scope of itineraries we have selected to match your interests and schedule. You will be spoilt for choice in selecting where and what to visit. You may re-discover favourite haunts or stumble upon hidden gems, whichever is right for you – a one, two, three or four day itinerary to explore our varied regions from the graceful Cotswold’s countryside to the coast of Wales.
London is the Lonely Planet Guide’s No.1 destination this year, and it has rated Glasgow in the top five cities to visit in the world; not to mention NewcastleGateshead, which it calls the ‘hipster capital of the north’. Or, if your interest lies in more historical, quaint, natural or wild and windswept landscapes, Britain really does have it all – the majestic Jurassic coastline in Dorset, Mersea Island Vineyard, producers of fine wines and real ale in Essex; horse-drawn carriage rides through the royal landscape of the Windsor Great Park; exploring around
Scotland’s Castle Douglas; the annual Bristol International Balloon Fiesta, or watching adorable puffins and seals at play on Wales’ Puffin Island, are just a few of the experiences we have featured – the choice is yours! This is a wonderful opportunity to make the most of your visit to experience firsthand the magnificent diversity Britain offers, and this guide will ensure you immerse yourself as much as you have the time and inclination into the distinctive, beautiful and at times eccentric experiences available in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Channel Islands.
