Scotland and Ireland have long been famous for their stunning natural beauty, boasting natural attractions like the Giant’s Causeway and the Scottish Highlands, together with historic cities like Belfast and Edinburgh. For example, in Belfast you can experience the story of the world’s most famous liner – one of Britain’s must-see attractions – the glittering, futuristic, £97million Titanic Belfast Experience. Or if it’s peace and stunning scenery you’re looking for, escape to the Highlands of Scotland and enjoy a land of open skies, rugged mountains, sparkling lochs, romantic castles, culture and history.
A great way of seeing our beautiful country is by letting the train take the strain. This can include stepping back in time to the great age of steam. If you’ve enjoyed Michael Palin’s Great Railway Journeys of the World, this could be the perfect opportunity to discover rail travel for yourself. And for something really unique, a once-in-a-lifetime coast to coast scenic rail journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats with a whole host of excursions will provide you with a holiday of a lifetime without ever leaving these shores. This is truly a grand tour!
Great Britain’s island and coastal landscape presents a wonderful range of opportunities. From the stunning sub-tropical Abbey Gardens of Tresco in the Scilly Isles, to discovering the Viking past of the Shetland Islands, every island has a unique heritage. The Channel Islands, nearer to France than the UK mainland, are wonderfully warm in the spring and summer months and have fabulous often-deserted beaches. Travel by ferry for just 20 minutes from Guernsey to the car-free island of Herm, where the beaches are simply world-class and almost empty, even in summer. Golfers, cyclists and nature enthusiasts will find plenty to entertain them on Anglesey, and with only the Menai Bridge to cross, it’s easy to take the car … and the dog!
