WANDER THE UK & IRELAND
Thriving Cities, Lush Countryside, High-end Dining & Daily Discovery
Often, Americans looking to travel abroad will start with a visit to England or Ireland, where the ease of language makes it easier on families nervous to travel abroad. From world-class cities to lush countryside, beaches and cozy pubs to high end dining experiences; there is really something for every personality to enjoy.
London is one of the most visited cities in the world, and rightfully so. It offers museums, attractions, historical sites, a bustling theater district, sporting events and shopping. Not to mention the abundance of luxury hotels (including apartment style) within walking distance from all the major attractions.
England’s extensive transport system also makes it very easy to get outside London to visit other wonderful destinations. Families return year after year to stay at country estates, castles and manor houses that offer an array of activities on site, making for an easy, fun and unique vacation!
With our connections you will have access to some of the most exclusive, brag-worthy experiences like the ‘behind the scenes’ Changing of Guard. This exclusive experience will take you to places where tourists are not allowed so that you can enjoy unrivalled views of the event. You will be right next to the action within the grounds of Wellington Barracks and away from the crowds, who have to stay behind the gates. Meet soldiers ‘backstage’ as they prepare for the parade, watch the ceremony with our expert explaining the significance of every detail and even get the chance to try on a Bearskin!
A trip to Scotland will please anyone. With music festivals, outdoor adventures, breathtaking roadtrips and the best whiskey you will ever taste, you simply cannot go wrong in this stunning and scenic part of the UK. Scotland’s towns, villages, cities, iconic attractions and landscapes are as varied and as diverse as they come, so no matter where you end up you’ll be blown away by your breathtaking surroundings.
What about Ireland? An epic adventure will be had by all amongst the lush landscapes, idyllic towns and bustling cities. With so much history and stories to be recounted. Ireland is one of the friendliest places on earth and perfect for all ages from 0 – 100.
Travelling with kids?
Planning a trip to the UK with kids can be overwhelming as there is so much to see and do. I can help narrow down the best options for you and your family. I know the best times to travel, what to visit and when and where the best family friendly hotels are. I will help you with all the logistics of getting around.
You definitely need to book early for apartment style hotels and connecting rooms, especially during school holidays, as these options are so popular they get booked up well in advance.
