Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

It is very difficult to predict the weather in the United Kingdom and Ireland - in the summer from May to late September is generally seen as the most pleasant time to visit. Rainfall is difficult to predict - but the UK does not receive as much as many are led to believe! In the winters, temperatures do fall, but there is nothing better than finding a remote pub with a roaring fire to sit beside after a long walk in the country.

We design each itinerary around you, so this suggested itinerary is a starting point that we can tweak or transform into something completely bespoke to you. To start planning your holiday


Explore the amazing landscapes and heritage of England, Ireland and Scotland, staying at the finest hotels. With our superb hand-picked private guides, you’ll discover vibrant cities and sleepy rural villages – truly the cream of the British Isles.

  1. Days 1-4: London

    Begin in London where you will have three days to experience the energy and vitality of this endlessly fascinating city. Whatever your interests, we can help design the ideal London itinerary for you. Whether it’s the pomp and ceremony of royal London, its museums and galleries, its restaurants and shows or its parks and gardens that you want to experience, we will book the very best Blue Badge Guides to make it all come alive for you.

    Accommodation: Rosewood London (3 nights)

  2. Days 4-6: The Cotswolds

    Your driver guide will then pick you up from your hotel to begin your adventure into the English countryside. Travelling via Oxford and Woodstock, you’ll stroll through the colleges and quadrangles of Britain’s oldest university and marvel at the grandeur of Blenheim Palace and its stunning Capability Brown-designed gardens before arriving into the heart of the Cotswolds. Visit Bath and Stonehenge, or explore Shakespeare country with a trip to Stratford-upon-Avon, or simply stroll around the beautiful countryside and quaint villages.  

    Accommodation: The Lygon Arms (2 nights)

  3. Days 6-8: Ring of Kerry

    Visiting the romantic ruins of Tintern Abbey en route, you’ll now be driven to Bristol for your short flight to Cork in southern Ireland. Here our Irish team will be ready to welcome you for the next part of your journey. First it’s County Kerry, where the idyllic country house retreat of Ard Na Sidhe will be your base for exploring this delightful corner of southwestern Ireland with its wild lakes, mountains and coast along the famous Ring of Kerry.

    Accommodation: Ard Na Sidhe Country House (2 nights)

  4. Days 8-10: County Clare, Ireland

    Travelling north, you’ll pass through Limerick and cross the River Shannon to marvel at the Cliffs of Moher with their amazing seabird colonies before arriving in Ballyvaughan to stay two nights at Gregans Castle, a stylish hideaway situated among the remarkable limestone landscapes of the Burren. Your next day is free, but we’d highly recommend immersing yourself in this ancient landscape and let your guide take you to see Neolithic dolmens, sacred wells and rare wildflowers peeping up from between the limestone fissures.

    Accommodation: Gregans Castle Hotel (2 nights)

  5. Days 10-12: Dublin & the East of Ireland

    before continuing to Dublin’s fair city for a two-night. Walk through Dublin's Georgian squares, be inspired by Trinity College and its famous illustrated manuscript the Book of Kells, and be sure to try a pint of Guinness in one of Dublin’s many characterful pubs.

    Accommodation: The Merrion (2 nights)

  6. Days 12-14: Perthshire

    For the final part of your incredible journey around the British Isles, it’s off to bonnie Scotland. Flying to Glasgow, you’ll be met by your private chauffeur and whisked off to the world-famous Gleneagles Hotel. Set among its own Perthshire estate, this leading hotel of the world offers countless ways in which to indulge, pamper and challenge yourself. Dine on smoked lobster at Andrew Fairlie, Scotland’s finest restaurant; succumb to a treatment at Gleneagles’ multi-award-winning spa and challenge yourself outdoors with a round of golf on one of its three championship courses, or by choosing from a host of country pursuits that range from falconry and clay pigeon shooting to an off-road Highlands safari.

    Accommodation: Gleneagles (2 nights)

  7. Days 14-16: Edinburgh

    Edinburgh, the lively Scottish capital, is the final stop. Uncover Edinburgh’s noble heritage by visiting Edinburgh Castle, Holyroodhouse and the Royal Yacht Britannia; be entertained by Edinburgh’s thriving arts and culture scene; and before you leave, walk the path up to the top of the extinct volcano known as Arthur’s Seat where you will be rewarded with glorious views of all Edinburgh laid out before you - a fitting climax to your journey around the British Isles.

    Accommodation: The Balmoral, a Rocco Forte Hotel (2 nights)
