Traveling through the small towns and larger cities, this Britain and Ireland tour is our most complete view of the British Isles. On any tour through Britain and Ireland you’d expect to visit ancient ruins, majestic castles and palaces, magnificent cathedrals, and historical sights. That’s why Globus has included visitations to prehistoric Stonehenge; the ancient Roman ruins in Bath; Edinburgh Castle, dating to the 12th century; Holyrood Palace, The Queen’s official residence in Scotland; Floors Castle, Scotland’s largest inhabited castle; Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill; Cawdor Castle, the romantic castle dating to the 14th century; Royal Pavilion, an exotic palace built in the early 1800s; St. Paul’s Cathedral, Sir Christopher Wren’s masterpiece; and Canterbury Cathedral, to where pilgrims have made their way since the Middle Ages.
You’d also expect lush landscapes and breathtaking scenery. That’s why Globus has included a photo stop at England’s breathtaking Land’s End; a drive on the 100-mile Ring of Kerry, with its rugged and magnificent landscapes; stunning scenery on Ireland’s Dingle Peninsula; the spectacular 668-foot Cliffs of Moher; Northern Ireland’s awe-inspiring Giant’s Causeway, formed millions of years ago; a scenic drive through Snowdonia National Park in Wales; England’s tranquil Lake District; the Isle of Skye, with some of Scotland’s best scenery; and much more.
What you may not expect on a Britain and Ireland tour are special and unique experiences. That’s where Globus is different and has included them. For example, you’ll enjoy a cruise on Plymouth Sound, one of the world’s great natural harbors, and you’ll have fun joining the locals for dinner and traditional Irish music at a local pub in Killarney.
