Luxury Holidays in the UK: an Overview

While some countries spend a fortune coming up with fancy marketing campaigns, ours is right there in the name. The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (to give it its full title) may not be great in terms of size, but this diminutive collection of islands anchored off the west coast of Europe most certainly punches above its weight in terms of attractions to enjoy on a luxury holiday.

Tailor Made Holidays and Tours in the UK: the Detail

With the benefit of local knowledge, Original Travel is developing a network of superb suggested (and completely tailor made) itineraries around the British Isles, starting with the capital and cultural hub, London. Further afield, narrowing down what's on offer to a list of highlights is mighty difficult, but any visit of more than a few days should consider including the majestic Scottish Highlands, some quintessential English rural scenes, the mysterious Neolithic ruins of Stonehenge and the Georgian elegance of Edinburgh or Bath. Chuck in some Roman ruins, an ancient cathedral or castle or two, a monument to Britain's industrial heritage and one of the many sporting highlights of 'the season' and there's a luxury holiday as diverse as you could wish for to any country, anywhere. Great, indeed.
