Tailor-made holidays in the UK

Introduction

The United Kingdom – England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Experience the sheer beauty of our island home, taking in historic cities, dramatic coastlines and magnificent national parks on everything from luxury rail journeys to luxurious cruises. There's so much history in the UK, echoed in landmarks including the ancient monuments of Stonehenge and Avebury, Hadrian's Wall and the 1,000 year old Tower of London. It's time to explore the hidden corners of our homeland.

Luxury Rail Journeys

The prospect of a rail journey in the UK is appealing for many reasons, including lowering your carbon footprint and making the journey as hassle-free as possible. Belmond's Royal Scotsman is an obvious choice, speeding through the stunning Scottish countryside in spectacular style. Passing dramatic highlands and glittering lochs, you'll enjoy white-gloved service onboard during your journey, with included fine dining and free-flowing drinks. It's a unique way to see the UK, away from the crowds.

Spectacular Self-Drives

Northern Ireland was made for self-drives; its coastal roads hugging dramatic cliffs; its interior a patchwork of emerald green. One of the most scenic routes spans the wild Causeway Coast, via the UNESCO-listed Giant's Causeway, looping inward to the verdant valleys of the Glens of Antrim, back around to Londonderry and on to Belfast. And, with convenient ferry connections between Belfast and Liverpool, it's the perfect way to see Northern Ireland's natural beauty without the stress of travelling by air.

Scenic Cruises

And, you can explore the UK itself by cruise too, sailing the Inner and Outer Hebrides on the trail of Bonnie Prince Charlie
