Join other like-minded explorers as we uncover the best of Britain and Ireland on a trip that will put the “cool” in Cool Britannia. Travel from ancient ruins to modern metropolises while exploring ancient castles and fortresses, traditional pubs and restaurants, timeless market towns and prestigious universities. Exploring over 2,000 years of history and a variety of distinct cultures (all squeezed into five fantastic, yet distinct, neighbouring nations), we’ve got your next unforgettable trip all wrapped up.
Day 1 London to York, England

Let's begin with dreaming spires and the earliest recorded graffiti (Google it) in Oxford. Then Stratford-upon-Avon, a town which by any other name wouldn't sound as sweet. Finally York, where we wrap up a big day with a ghost tour around this walled medieval town.

Included today:
-York Ghost Tour

Meals:
-Dinner

Day 2 York to Edinburgh, Scotland

Spread your wings and take a selfie under the Angel of the North before we hit Hadrian's Wall. Then get your daily dose of Gothic architecture at Alnwick Castle and hit up Edinburgh tonight for a local pub feast (think: haggis, real ale and endless malts). End your day by getting (or losing) your bearings on an optional pub crawl. When in Rome! Or Edinburgh, for that matter.

-Angel of the North visit

Meals:

Day 4 Edinburgh

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:

Day 5 Edinburgh to Glasgow

Get oriented in Scotland's Brooklyn on a walking tour before exploring Glasgow on your own. Merchant City's got that sophisticated cool, while Ashton Lane is ruggedly cool in that student budget kind of way. Fill up on something hearty before the afternoon's distillery tour. Wouldn't want an empty stomach keeping you from tasting the Scottish water of life (read: whisky). Tonight, hunt down the best battered Mars bar for a taste of a true local delicacy.

Day 6 Glasgow to Belfast, Northern Ireland

Ferry over to the land of four leafed clovers and mythical pots of gold.

Then hit up the Titanic Museum or hop on an optional Black Cab tour for local tales and insider tips. Tonight: gobble down some local grub with the group before knocking back some pints. You'll fit right in.

This morning is all #nofilter. First through the Burren National Park, then past the Spielberg-worthy backdrop at the Cliffs of Moher. Later, gear up for a #throwback tour of Killarney by means of a jaunting horse and cart. Tonight is all you, so get lost or drink up.
