At a Glance

On an extraordinary voyage around the island of Great Britain and across the Irish Sea to the warmth and spark of Ireland, discover 16th-century palaces and castles, energetic modern cities and beautiful stretches of wild coastline. Wander off-the-beaten path to Edinburgh’s medieval closes (alleyways) to secret hideaways, trace the story of a kiss to a 700-year-old stone at Blarney Castle in Ireland, and in England’s North East stroll the River Tyne to marvel at Newcastle bridges that have transformed the face of a 2,000-year-old city.
