Royal Alba Castle Country
Aberdeenshire, Scotland’s Castle Country - A Royal Favourite
Sometimes the best travelled among us haven’t taken the time to really explore the UK. However, you’ll find there is so much on offer when you start planning your holidays here in the United Kingdom. From the Highlands of Scotland to the beaches of Cornwall and with plenty of stunning countryside and bustling cities in between, there’s always something unexpected to uncover within the four countries that make up the UK.
Each country has its own character and corners to explore. Whatever type of experience you have in mind, allow Jules Verne to introduce you to some spectacular sights during your visit. Choose from our UK tours of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and find out more about these magical lands.
If you’re looking into booking a trip around the United Kingdom, holidays can be planned based on the country you’d like to see first. Take a look at what our escorted tours of the UK offer to see which could be the best fit for you.
You may want to head to Scotland first. Maybe you’ve got your heart set on a trip that takes in the wild islands of this captivating country? The remote Scottish islands are populated by shrubberies, weathered sheep and amiable farmers, and are dotted with local pubs that exude warm welcomes.
Perhaps you long to step back in time and see the Scottish capital in a new light? Or there are the Highlands, with their sweeping vistas, soaring mountains and deep lochs. There are also ancient sites such as the 13th-century castle at Dunvegan for you to see up close.
If you’re searching for a visit with a difference, our UK tours include England. These showcase some of the most magical corners of this country.
From historic Yorkshire to the treasures of Devon, and the hidden gems of the Cotswolds to the rolling countryside of Northumberland.
You might want to explore the coastline or indulge in a rural break. We have both holiday styles and more covered. Our small group tours of the UK include trips to seaside locations and countryside destinations, so you can see all that’s on offer in these different regions.
The majestic mountains of Wales rise up to the coast, meaning a trip to the seaside often has a particularly dramatic backdrop. This country is an eclectic mixture of rural landscapes and quaint seaside resorts, so you’re sure to find something special on your visit here.
You’re never too far from a castle in Wales, and there is plenty of history to soak up on one of our tours. Step back in time and explore this land of legends.
If you’re planning your holidays in the United Kingdom, the tours we offer in Northern Ireland are a must. Here, you’ll spend time in Belfast, which has an impressive nautical past, as well as stunning architecture and striking sites.
These escorted tours head outside the UK too, making their way south to the Republic of Ireland. Here, you can take a tour of Dublin and explore the castles and ruins around the Emerald Isle.
Whichever of the four countries you long to see, you’ll find that Jules Verne has your dream visit covered. Our UK tours are designed to give you a taste of what these countries have to offer.
