Home to Shakespeare, King Henry VIII and even David Bowie, the United Kingdom boasts a wealth of heritage, history and culture. Glorious gardens, evocative archaeological sites and world-class arts await in this small, yet mighty country – and an expert-led tour here will show you just how much there is to be discovered. How about an all-encompassing tour of Scotland’s Highlands and Islands? What about visits to medieval sites in Yorkshire? Or, perhaps it’s time to hike the length of Hadrian’s Wall and bring the history you have learned about vividly back to life.
From the Picts to the Romans, and from Neolithic sites to ancient artefacts, the British Isles have something to intrigue every kind of traveller.
What to expect
One of the world’s richest archaeological destinations
With Stonehenge at one end of the country and magnificently carved Pictish stones at the other – and a whole host of incredible sites both in between and to the sides – the UK is home to an array of captivating archaeology. Years of history among varied and often surprising landscapes give birth to intriguing stories of the past, some of which are supported by fact and others presented as folklore, but all are well worth exploring.
Discover awe-inspiring remains at every turn
Even if you’ve visited the UK before – or if you call this part of the world home – chances are that you won’t have explored everything it has to offer. Yes, this country might be fairly small, but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking in things to see and do! With incredibly rich history and archaeological sites that range from chambered tombs and mysterious monoliths, to ancient fortifications and even amphitheatres, there is something magnificent around every corner. Delve into the stories, myths and legends to be found here.
