DAY 01: Visit Stonehenge, Bath and Cardiff

Welcome to your tour of the UK and Ireland! Departing from London, we make our way to Stonehenge, the ancient archaeological wonder which has stood for thousands of years in the countryside of south-west England. Ponder the mysteries of this ancient site for yourself and learn about the history of the area. Once we’ve had a chance to look around, we’re off to the beautiful and historic city of Bath, famous of course for the Roman baths built here during the reign of the Empire. Heading into nearby Wales, Caerphilly Castle is our next stop, where you’ll be able to snap a few photos of this ancient attraction, built in the 13th century by Gilbert de Clare, a red-headed Norman nobleman. Finally, we arrive in the Welsh capital of Cardiff, where we’ll stop for the night. Dinner, overnight accommodation.

DAY 02: Visit Liverpool

Prepare for your second day of adventure! After breakfast in Cardiff we make for the hometown of William Shakespeare! A market town with more than 800 years of history, the town still has many buildings that would be familiar to Shakespeare if he was still around today. Then we’re off to Liverpool! Liverpool is a famous British port city with a rich history; there’s something for everyone here. Football fans will be delighted to be in the home city of Liverpool and Everton football clubs, while music fans will be enthralled to be in the home of The Beatles. Spot the famous sites with our driving tour of the city, and explore the city yourself during your free time this evening. Why not head to Mathew Street, the beating heart of the live music scene and home to the world-famous ‘Cavern Club’, where The Beatles first made their mark on modern music? Breakfast, overnight accommodation.

Day 03: Visit Dublin

Today we catch the ferry across the Irish Sea to Dublin! Once we arrive, we’ll take a drive tour of the city, and spot a few of the city’s more famous highlights. Afterwards, enjoy some free time in this 1000 year-old city. From the city’s Viking past, its medieval castles and its cathedrals, to its many museums which illustrate some of the city’s more turbulent episodes, Dublin is big enough to keep you entertained, but small enough to get across town in no time at all. Tonight there’s also the option to visit the Merry Ploughboy Music Pub for a taste of traditional Irish music! Definitely not to be missed – check our Optional Excursions documents for more information. Breakfast, overnight accommodation.

Day 04: Free day in Dublin

Today’s another day for epic Irish scenery! Making our way up the ‘Wild Atlantic Way’, we’ll be stopping in Adare and Limerick on our way to the famous Cliffs of Moher and the town of Galway. Adare is often called Ireland’s prettiest village, and with its preserved 19th century thatch-roofed cottages housing craft shops and fine restaurants, it’s not hard to see why. We’ll travel on through the county of Limerick and make our way to the Cliffs of Moher, one of the best-known attractions in all of Ireland. These incredible cliffs rise over 200 meters from the frothing ocean below, and the views on a clear day are absolutely breath-taking.

Learn about the myths and legends surrounding the area, and then prepare for the final stop in the Irish leg of our adventure – Belfast! Here we’ll have a driving tour with a local guide, taking time to see some of the city’s most famous attractions and learning more about the city’s past. Having pulled off quite a transformation in recent years, Belfast is shaking off its reputation which lingered after the times of The Troubles, and the city’s skyline is constantly changing as redevelopment continues.
