I travel for thrills

Man on stilts in crowd in Edinburgh.

Scotland has heaps of everything. Whisky distilleries. Trendy restaurants. Music festivals and more. Get your Outlander fix where the adventure is the prize and the kilts are optional.

Best of all, we fly into either Edinburgh or Glasgow from which Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park is just a one hour car drive away.

I travel for local flavor

Man holding lobster cage.

Take your taste buds on an adventure with the traditional and not so traditional side of Britain. The United Kingdom has some of the best restaurants in the world featuring world-known chefs who create amazing dishes. And of course, the traditional staples like full English breakfast, afternoon tea or fish and chips can be found too.

London gastronomy

British food is all about diversity, and nowhere combines fine dining with flavoursome street food quite like London.

Feast on sumptuous small plates at the luxurious May Fair hotel, where Spanish meets Italian, washed down with fine wines and signature cocktails. Or, if you’re looking to indulge in a fancy Sunday brunch, gorge on exquisite food and bubbles at the W London’s Perception restaurant.

Cardiff cuisine

Cardiff’s food scene is thriving. From tapas, Lebanese, Thai and Japanese to vegan, barbecue and French, the city has earned its reputation as a top foodie destination.

The Hilton Cardiff hotel features a contemporary lounge restaurant serving no-nonsense British classics with local produce and craft ale. Or check-in to the Clayton Hotel Cardiff Lane for European and Irish classics at the Stir Restaurant.

I travel for stories

Dunnotar Castle, Scotland.

Your adventure starts in London but don’t settle for one city. Book a multi-centre adventure and discover castles beyond the capital. Catch a short flight to historic Edinburgh, stroll the cobbled streets and enjoy a ‘wee dram’ in a cosy pub.

Or why not rent a car, hit the road and find yourself in the idyllic villages and countryside of the Cotswolds. Head to historic Stratford-upon-Avon and onto the university town of Oxford to write your own Great British adventure.

You can even get 7 days car rental for the price of 5 when you book before August 15 and travel before October 31, 2018. Terms apply
