Every location in Ireland and the United Kingdom has a fascinating story to tell. Whether you visit England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, or Ireland, you will discover a land rich in history, heritage, and cultural traditions.
The landscape is dotted with imposing castles and stately medieval cathedrals. Stopping at historic inns and country guest houses, dreamy stone cottages with exquisite gardens, and vintage and antique shops may make you feel like you’re in a time warp.
While London is undeniably one of the world’s great cities, with cutting-edge culture, art, museums, theatre, and iconic landmarks, many other fantastic smaller towns and cities to visit. By dinnertime, you can have a full English breakfast in the beautiful Georgian city of Bath, lunch in the idyllic village of Castle Combe, and be sipping a pint by the river in the university town of Oxford.
The countryside of the United Kingdom and Ireland is charming. Travel through the picturesque English Cotswolds or past cliffs and coastal towns in the Irish counties of Cork and Kerry. Exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Lake District, Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, or the Scottish Highlands with its legendary Loch Ness is an understatement.
The United Kingdom and Ireland are well-known for the high quality of their spirits. Visits to historic distilleries for tastings are part of the Scottish and Irish whisky trails. Visitors can sample a variety of aromas and flavours until they find their favourite single malt.
Alternatively, at a cosy pub or bar, savour artisanal gins or ales alongside hearty local fare. Dublin, Ireland’s capital, is home to the Guinness brewery and storehouse, but it’s also a UNESCO City of Literature, as is Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital.
The British Isles are a must-see destination for literary travellers. There are numerous literary references. Some people may be satisfied with a visit to Harry Potter’s Platform 934 at King’s Cross Station or Sherlock Holmes’ 221B Baker Street in London. Settle for nothing less than a holiday to Shakespeare’s birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon, to see a Royal Shakespeare Theatre riverside performance.
