The United Kingdom & Ireland Vacations

UK & Ireland Tours

Discover the legendary vistas and mesmerizing tales that can only be found in lands as old as the British Isles by embarking on thoughtfully crafted tours of UK and Ireland. Five countries, each distinct in their traditions and landscapes, beckon on these train tours and rail and sail vacations. Although together England, Wales, Scotland, North Ireland, and the Republic of Ireland are less than half the size of Texas, the countries' multifaceted offerings and layers of culture offer endless chances to explore.

Britain and Ireland tour packages that begin in England have so many delightful cities from which to choose. Without a doubt, London is one of the pinnacle cities of Western Europe, with its posh atmosphere and eclectic offerings. From the Tower of London, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and Tower Bridge to Hyde Park, Piccadilly Circus, and St. Paul's Cathedral, there is no shortage of highlights to capture visitors' attention. Venturing out of London, tour Bath, with its famous hot springs, or York, home to 2,000-year-old artifacts dating back to the Romans. Travel packages may showcase one of the wonders of the world, Stonehenge, or present history that spans centuries at castles such as Bamburgh Castle on the country's northeast coast. Traversing between destinations could not be more convenient, thanks to a well-connected network of local and scenic rail lines. Travelers may also take a train even further north into Scotland, where the Scottish Highlands' natural splendors are simply unmatched. Delight at heather moors, vast lochs, and rolling mountains while exploring the charming destinations of the Highlands - locales where castles dot the landscape, and wild expanses can be seen from miles around. Scotland is also home to well-known cities, including Edinburgh, and countless distilleries producing Scotch Whisky for centuries. Discovering the intricacies of the Scottish landscape by train is one of the great joys of traveling here, and the railways are certainly abundant. Favorites include the Kyle Line, the West Highland Line, and the one and only Royal Scotsman. Connecting one of these train trips with a ferry ride across the Irish Sea opens even more possibilities with British Isles tours, offering the key to North Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, both of which brim with adventure. Gaze upon dramatic coasts and famed natural points of interest, including the Cliffs of Moher and Giant's Causeway. Marvel at the remnants of the past at Ireland's ancient fortresses, or meander through cities where modern and historical features coexist. A trip to England, Ireland, and Scotland is more than just an experience to remember; it is the experience of a lifetime.
