At the heart of the UK’s largest National Park, the Cairngorms National Park, is the astonishing Cairngorms plateau. During the last Ice Age, 10,000 years ago, this landscape was scraped, carved and gouged by ice to create deep high altitude valleys and corries in this vast…

The Ring of Kerry

On the Ring of Kerry, it seems, even the weeds are worth photographing.

As the name suggests, “the Ring” begins and ends at the same point: Killarney. Queen Victoria visited here in 1861 and stayed in Muckross House, the grand Victorian mansion at the centre of Killarney National Park.

The Queen and her ladies left a legacy: on a peak above the park, overlooking glittering lakes, is Ladies View. Apparently the ladies’ appreciation of the spot was so great, the location was renamed after them. Today, the viewpoint is accompanied by…

Searching for a winter multi-day tour of Britain

These tours are rather limited in winter, but there are still a few good choices available and we have suggested a good option below for you and answering another regular request, this does have Christmas dates

This tour includes a visit to Alnwick Castle. Does that ring any bells?

Well it is probably better known as Hogwarts School in the famous Harry Potter films and here is some more information:

Alnwick Castle and the surrounding parkland of Hulne Park offer a dramatic and unspoilt setting for filmmakers

Most famously in recent years, Alnwick Castle featured as Hogwarts in the first two Harry Potter films.Scenes of Harry Potter filmed at the castle include the first Quidditch lesson in Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone and the crash landing of the flying Ford Anglia in Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets

A great way to tour Britain. Sightseeing at its best!

Looking for a good value, Luxury multi-day tour of Britain

There are good options for First Class tours that are still good value and tend to include a lot of extras. The use full size coaches, but have much less seats on board (max 40) and this gives extended leg room, on-board WiFi, fine dinning and high standard accommodation

We found a good example of one of these, which includes a night in Cardiff which is an often requested destination, but is not often found on itineraries

Here is some more information on Cardiff

Cardiff is a city proud of its culture, history and language which has undergone a fascinating journey over the last 2000 years. Discover Cardiff’s progress from a small settlement, to the world’s busiest port, to the modern capital city it is today. Learn about Cardiff Bay, its history and its future as well as what’s on offer now.
