Explore the UK and Ireland
Mild weather, mad locals, funny television programmes and ages of bloodthirsty history: that’s Britain in a nutty nutshell. Discover the land that produced both David Attenborough and the Daleks, where cities are buzzing, the beaches are plentiful, and the countryside is both quintessential and quirky.
It’s the land of Dr Who and Harry Potter, tea, tradition and tolerance. England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland make up these patchwork islands. Britain may have left the EU, but it still welcomes visitors with open arms, a cup of tea, and a nice sit down. You can spot seals in the wild when you surf and hike over heather clad moors. If the weather turns and you want to stay indoors, the Royal Family have left a legacy of castles and mansions. Traditional Britain has charmed the world, but are you prepared to see what it’s really like? Book flights and holidays.
