We specialise in arranging bespoke group travel arrangements catering for all types of groups, from student travel to corporate events and special interest tours.
UK Travel Designers are also considered one of the foremost concert tour specialists to the UK & Ireland where we customise tours for visiting bands, choirs, orchestras and dance groups. We work with a wide-ranging portfolio of venues for these tours including local churches, schools, cathedrals and professional concert halls along with unique workshops with local well-known musicians and artists. We can also customise tours for Educational programmes with technical visits.
The UK & Ireland is blessed with landscape, culture and heritage which lends itself perfectly for all types of group tours and visits – from formal gardens to quintessentially English tea rooms, quaint villages, antique shops and challenging golf courses. Groups interested in literature and architecture are spoilt for choice with tour ideas centred around famous authors such as Shakespeare, Dickens or Yeats, or those incorporating visits to castles and country manor houses, some of which have been used in famous films and TV productions. Sporting events and attractions can easily be woven into programs, such as visits to major venues and locations including Wembley Stadium, Ascot, Galway Racecourse, Wimbledon and Silverstone.
We can create general tours of the UK & Ireland taking in the major sites centred around London, Stratford upon Avon, the Viking City of York, Oxford, Cambridge or the West Country of Cornwall with fantastic coastlines and the Lake District in England. Historic Scotland with vibrant City centres as well as history and traditions dating back centuries are waiting to be discovered. Crossing the Irish sea a visit to Northern Ireland never disappoints as you discover rugged coastlines and buzzing cityscapes. A tour to the Republic of Ireland is also a must, ‘The Emerald Isle’ is famous for its pastoral countryside, thatched cottages, lively pubs, traditional music, more coastlines for you to discover charming towns and welcoming locals.
If you are considering bringing groups to the UK or Ireland, we look forward to hearing from you to discuss your own unique requirements further.
