Tracks of The Welsh Dragon
Delight in The Golden Age of Travel on a steam journey, hauled by 61306 Mayflower, discovering some of Britain’s stunningly beautiful rail journeys
Sometimes the best travelled among us haven’t taken the time to really explore the UK. From the Highlands of Scotland to the beaches of Cornwall and with plenty of stunning countryside and bustling cities in between; there is always more to discover in the United Kingdom.
With four countries within its borders, each has its own character and corners to explore. The remote Scottish islands are populated by shrubberies, weathered sheep and amiable farmers, and are dotted with local pubs that exude warm welcomes. Busy port cities such as Hull come alive with their culture, music and exciting modern architecture, while retaining their distinctive look and feel. The majestic mountains of Wales rise beyond the coast, while the beaches of Cornwall attract visitors from all over the world.
There’s so much to see: ancient sites such as the 13th-century castle at Portree, subtropical gardens in Scilly, the war bunkers in Guernsey, the biomes of the Eden Project, and many more adventures besides. There are plenty of pubs and bars to refresh in and enjoy some food and a local brew - whether you choose tea or beer is up to you.
