Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

It is very difficult to predict the weather in the United Kingdom - in the summer from May to late September is generally seen as the most pleasant time to visit. Rainfall is difficult to predict - but England 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.

Itinerary

Combine a stay at Scotland's world-famous Gleneagles hotel with a stop to discover London's must-see landmarks and a chance to explore the English countryside in the Cotswolds for a family-friendly introduction to England and Scotland.

  1. Days 1-5: Perthshire

    Arrive into Glasgow where your private driver will take you on the hour-long drive to the world-famous Gleneagles hotel. Offering a lot more than golf, you'll be impressed with the activities on offer from falconry to cycling and horse riding. During your 4-night stay your private guide can take you on a guided tour of Edinburgh or you can venture in the Highlands in search of wild deer amongst the stark landscape. We can arrange your activities and excursions according to your family's interests.

    We've included a family falconry lesson, a fantastic way for you to bond together and a unique opportunity to get close to these magnificent birds. If you have ever considered yourself to be a wannabe Robin Hood, we have also included an archery lesson so you can let out your competitive sides and see who in the family has the best shot!

  2. Days 5-8: London

    At the end of your stay, you'll be transferred to the train station to board the train to vibrant London. This journey allows you to see the changing landscape of Britain as you whisk your way past Roman towns, cathedrals and rolling fields.

Also within easy reach of Calcot Manor is the Roman City of Bath, famous for it's brown bath-stone buildings and home to some of the world's best-preserved roman baths.
