This private luxury tour features the best of the capitals of Ireland, Scotland and England. It includes private touring of incredible culture and cuisine in Dublin, Edinburgh and London, as well as options for day trips to the most interesting regional attractions around each city.

Begin in Dublin, the capital of Ireland and the perfect starting point for an overview of the country’s long and storied history. During touring with your private guide, see the historic highlights of Dublin, marvel at the iconic Book of Kells (Artisans of Leisure will arrange fast-track access), and the Long Room in the Old Library at Trinity College, and tour St. Patrick’s Cathedral, one of the most important churches in Ireland. Walk in the footsteps of Irish literary giants such as James Joyce and Oscar Wilde in Georgian Dublin, a neighborhood of well-preserved architecture set around leafy St. Stephen’s Green. Also enjoy a privately guided tour of the Guinness Storehouse and free time to browse specialty shops, markets and the Creative District. Other options that can be incorporated into Dublin touring include specialty museums, contemporary art galleries, Kilmainham Gaol, distillery tours and the Chester Beatty Library. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange private pub crawls, afternoon tea and reservations at Dublin’s best restaurants for contemporary Irish cuisine.

One day, enjoy a private excursion to County Wicklow to tour the beautiful gardens at Powerscourt. If desired, also visit Glendalough, a glacial valley with the ruins of an ancient monastery set among lakes.

Next, fly to Edinburgh, the stunning capital of Scotland, and stay in a sophisticated city hotel. During flexible touring with your private guide, explore the city according to your interests. Tour the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. See iconic Edinburgh Castle and walk along the Royal Mile, the road leading from the castle to the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Explore historic buildings and narrow closes (alleys) and stairways that connect different levels of the city. Also visit neighborhoods and shops noted for Scottish products such as weavings, wool items, and tweed. Depending on your interests, you may wish to visit the Royal Botanic Garden or the National Gallery, tour the Scottish Parliament Building, or hike an extinct volcano for a panoramic overview of Edinburgh. If desired, take a private excursion to Glasgow to tour cultural highlights such as art museums and Charles Rennie Mackintosh architecture or to Stirling, a strategic castle town on the edge of the Highlands that played an important role in the battles for Scottish independence.

Finally, travel to London, England, one of the great cities of the world. Enjoy comprehensive touring with an expert Blue Badge guide. First-time visitors might like to visit landmarks such as the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Covent Garden, the London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral and Buckingham Palace. Other options include visiting favorite neighborhoods, small museums, specialty shops, food markets, historic pubs and private gardens. One day, continue your private city touring, or enjoy a private excursion to Windsor Castle. Artisans of Leisure can also arrange theater tickets and reservations at London’s best restaurants.
