Spectacular scenery combined with fascinating architectural remains and energetic cities-all of this awaits you on this fabulous Britain and Ireland tour. Your tour starts and ends in London with overnights in between in Newport, Wales; Waterford and Dublin in Ireland; Edinburgh, Scotland; and York, England.

Fans of castles will enjoy the visit to Cardiff Castle, dating back over 2,000 years. Hear about its history of invasions, abductions, and conflicts, and see its fairy-tale towers. You’ll also visit Edinburgh Castle, dating to the 12th century and today home to the Crown Jewels; and Kilkenny Castle, in Ireland, built in 1195 to control a fording-point of the River Nore and the junction of several route ways. Even older than these castles are the Roman baths in Bath, constructed around 70 AD and today one of the best preserved Roman remains in the world, and Stonehenge. You’ll visit both of these on this Essential Britain & Ireland tour. You’ll also visit Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon and the House of Waterford Crystal in Waterford, where you’ll see the highly-skilled craftsmen at work in the production of this famous crystal. We have also included a special experience for you on this tour: a traditional Irish coffee demonstration in Waterford. Then, at the conclusion of your tour, travel via the high-speed Eurostar train to Paris for three overnights, plenty of leisure time, and guided sightseeing that includes a relaxing cruise of the River Seine with views of Notre Dame Cathedral. All services in Paris, including Local Host assistance, are provided by Globus.
