Essential Britain & Ireland with Paris

13 Day Tour from London to Paris


Vacation Overview

Don’t think you can see the top sights of Britain and Ireland in 10 days? Sharpen your pencils to cross off your bucket-list destinations in five fabulous countries. A jolly good time awaits in England, Scotland, and Wales—plus both territories of Ireland—as you explore the lively capital cities of each and the thatched-roof-dotted countryside in between. Coast through rolling hills, ferry across legendary waterways, and skip down cobblestone streets to discover the wonders of Stonehenge, Waterford, York, and more on this essential tour of Britain and Ireland. Along the way, you’ll drink in the sights of fairytale castles and storybook settings as well as the locally brewed ales, strong Irish coffees, and perfectly aged scotch whiskeys passionately poured in every pub. Factor in time to shop for bits and bobs and taste local favorites like fish and chips, and you’d be off your trolley not to come along!

While you’re sampling shepherd’s pie and shandy, why not try a little soufflé and champagne, too? It’s easy when you add a 3-night Monograms vacation to Paris to your tour of Britain and Ireland. Board the high-speed Eurostar train for guided sightseeing and ample time on your own to explore the storied streets and inviting cafés along the Seine.
