Visit the UK & Ireland, with Original Travel UK, for exciting adventures and active experiences to suit all ages! Don't be fooled; the UK is not just about tea, crumpets and croquet on the lawn - let us show you our top picks for action-packed activities with a difference!

Hit the saddle

For horse lovers who want to experience the most memorable few days deep in the English countryside we recommend a luxury riding challenge. This Dartmoor based experience is the perfect opportunity to navigate a carefully planned, three to six day ride around the rugged countryside that sent even Steven Spielberg weak at the knees. During the riding trail, camp in a selection of specially constructed & comfortable moorland tents purpose built for the event, based on similar styles used for African riding safaris, or spend your nights in luxury hotels. Combine stunning scenery, amazing riding routes with brilliant hospitality for the perfect riding getaway!

Wander lonely as a cloud

Head to the heights of the Lake District for the perfect hiking getaway. We can organise guided hikes with qualified instructors or self-guided experiences complete with routes and maps. Enjoy stunning views of the glittering lakes as you climb to the recently re-opened Claife Viewing Station or enjoy an experience filled with Wordsworth inspiration as you walk to his home at Rydal Mount - make sure you stop in at the famous gingerbread shop! The Lake District combines perfect hiking routes with delightful hotels and seriously foodie inns and restaurants - perfect to rest any weary legs in.

On your Bike!

See London from a different perspective as you take to your bike - enjoy a private tour with your guide as you cruise around Royal London. Enjoy riding through the beautiful Royal Parks as you take in Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace and Westminster. Want to head out of the city? Why not enjoy a cycle ride down to the fascinating area of Greenwich or for an even more rural experience let us arrange a cycle day tour for you around Hampton Court Palace & Kew Gardens.

Ballet Master Class

Enjoy a private dance class with a Royal Ballet School trained teacher - perfect for all abilities. Whether you would like to hone your pointe technique or would prefer a beginner's class with family and friends, our specialist teacher can show you the classical ballet technique, share her love of the dance and is also great fun! If you would prefer a more up-beat class swap ballet for Irish dancing, where we can arrange the lead dancer of hit show Riverdance to show you a move or two in a private Irish studio.
