Discover our United Kingdom tours
If you thought you knew the UK, you might just need to think again. Join one of our small group tours in the United Kingdom and discover an unparalleled history in its ancient castless, majestic palaces and inspiring gardens. Explore on foot along dramatic coastal paths and National Park trails, and through Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty on a walking trip, or take to two wheels to traverse the country coast-to-coast, taking in sites along Hadrian’s Wall.
The tours have been designed so you can make the most of the days – coming back to the same base each night or moving just once, depending on the trip. The locations are all easily accessible by train or car. Our experienced tour leaders will show you all of the well-known sites, as well as the hidden gems you wouldn’t expect.
Highlights of the United Kingdom
Discover the sandy beaches and steep, wildflower-covered cliffs of the South West Coast Path. Explore quaint fishing villages and hidden coves, and try hot Cornish pasties, scones with clotted cream and crumbly Cornish yarg. Our Cornish walking holiday (coming soon) is a perfect way to explore coastal Cornwall.
Walking in the Lake District
This rolling national park, a World Heritage Site, is home to over 200 fells, pikes and dales means it’s a mecca for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts. A walking holiday in the Lake District is the perfect way to explore, from the iconic Scafell Pike to lesser-known hill trails and lake-side routes. The otherworldly beauty of the Lake District inspired Beatrix Potter, Wordsworth and Ruskin, as well as countless artists.
This Welsh national park is characterised by dramatic jagged mountains, hidden tarns and wildflowers, and is perfect for a walking holiday. Snowdon itself is, of course, a huge draw and we walk up the quietest and best route, but there are countless other beautiful walks in this area to be discovered, such as the Glyders and Cnicht mountain, the Matterhorn of Wales.
This area in the north east of England is a lesser-visited pocket of the UK with so much to offer. Discover countless imposing castles and explore the winding roman architecture of Hadrian’s Wall, which flanks the north of the county, on a cultural Northumberland holiday. Cycle the breadth of the county on a coast-to-coast cycling trip, or explore on foot and visit the place that David Attenborough called ‘nature’s paradise’ – the Farne Islands, where clusters of puffins cling to the rocks.
Discover another side to the UK and cruise the wild Scottish islands to discover abundant seabird, puffin and arctic tern. Hop from island to island to uncover ancient relics, towering monoliths and Iron Age dwellings steeped in historical significance. Photograph and wonder at wildlife like fulmars, kittiwakes, guillemots, gannets, dolphins and whales.
