Here are just some of our favourite places – come and explore Britain with us – it’s GREAT
Often fondly referred to as “middle England” due to its geographical location, the Cotswold region encompasses some of the best villages in the UK. It’s full of classic pubs serving traditional ales, idyllic cottages with thatched roofs, authentic tearooms and accommodation from country hotels to stately homes and attractions. There’s so much to see and do, whether by road or river, for groups or individuals. Hire a classic car and stroll the country lanes or rent a canal boat for truly memorable water experience. We can offer you traditional hospitality or themed events for impactful teambuilding, incorporated into a creative itinerary.
Oxford & Cambridge
You may have heard of the UK boat race between Oxford and Cambridge, held on the River Thames in April every year? However, these two cities known for their universities and colleges each have very different stories to tell. An itinerary would include tours within the walls of these famous universities, an appreciation of the architecture and jewels they hold and trivia that will help you understand how their educational system was fundamental to our heritage. Both are River cities and within easy reach of London.
Chester & Cheshire
Chester is one of the world’s most beautiful cities, where you can walk through 2000 years of history. Explore the Roman gardens and amphitheatre, walk the ancient city walls – the most complete in Britain, browse around the shops in the medieval, two-tiered shopping galleries known as the Rows, visit the Norman cathedral or take a relaxing boat on the River Dee, which skirts the city. You can even hire a Roma soldier as your guide to the city. Don’t forget Chester Zoo, a unique and exciting experience, set in 110 acres of award winning gardens – over 700 animals, more than 400 species of rare and endangered wildlife.
Bath & the West Country
If you’ve watched English period drama, you will have witnessed historic Bath with its Georgian architecture best displayed by the Royal Crescent, quirky museums, refined tearooms like The Pump Room and a city full of boutique shops for shoppers with individual tastes. Located in South-West England, Bath is an attractive city and surrounded by beautiful rolling hills, so the countryside is on your doorstep adding great value to your stay. Honey-coloured buildings in the way of traditional hotels, manor houses just outside the city, gastro pubs offering fine dining but without the formalities, make Bath a choice for those seeking tradition with sophistication. Its location means train and road travel is easy and fast, and within quick reach of London.
London remains one of the most visited, culturally diverse cities in the world. Its history and heritage, iconic buildings (old and new), home to famous writers and political figures, and of course our Monarchy, makes London attractive over and over again. Every visit to London delivers new places to visit and we take pride in suggesting iconic brands and attractions that do not appear on every tourist map in the world! Boutique accommodation, Michelin-star restaurants providing skyline views of London, trips on the River Thames to thrill, shop until you drop – the list goes on and on. Join us for fascinating tailor-made walking tours following in the footsteps of Jack the Ripper or Charles Dickens – and visit Jewish East London. We have preferred rates for theatre tickets that include great viewing seats, complimentary souvenir programme and champagne to provide the ultimate theatre experience. There’s the opportunity to view London from the air, from the river – or just on foot. Love London!
Often referred to as the Garden of England, the county of Kent is probably one of the most beautiful in the land. From the rolling countryside of the North Downs to the maritime heritage of the coastline, there will always be something of interest to see. Canterbury Cathedral, Kent and East Sussex Railway, the Aspinal Foundation, Turner Contemporary, these are just a few of the places that you can visit and experience in Kent. There are also some amazing places to stay, Eastwell Manor is the complete quality country house near Ashford set in a Norman manor and converted stables with 60 acres of grounds, or relax and unwind at The Treehouse Hotel at the Port Lympne Reserve, which is set in an award winning wild animal park. This designer hotel is literally set in the tree canopy overlooking the 600 acre reserve, where each glass fronted suite offers stunning views over the Romney marsh to the coastline.

Isle of Skye
The Isle of Skye is a gem of an island, lying off the west coast of Scotland, with beautiful mountain scenery, interesting geology, stunning sea lochs and plenty of wildlife. It is the largest of the Inner Hebrides and its landscape is distinctly Highland with its lochs, heather-clad moors and towering peaks. In summer, you can take a boat trip, where you may catch a glimpse of dolphins, sea eagles and golden eagles. Skye is also home to twenty impressive Munros, making the island a favourite with hillwalkers keen to tackle the heights of its Cuillin mountain range.
