Our Philosophy

Ampersand has always believed that luxury is in the experience. Real luxury is being able to do what you want, when you want to. For us, this involves leaving behind the crowds, finding somewhere beautiful and meeting inspiring people who show us their way of life. 

London is the home of Ampersand Travel and the UK & Ireland is a region we love and know incredibly well. In addition to extensive research trips, we have the added bonus of spending our free time exploring this beautiful region. Whether attending a new restaurant launch party, taking afternoon tea at a top London hotel, enjoying a walking tour of the Scottish Highlands, or joining in at one of the country’s many cultural festivals, the Ampersand team are always making the most of our fantastic surroundings, with the added bonus that our clients benefit in the process!

Ampersand Favourite

To help familiarise you with the Ampersand style we have developed
an ‘Ampersand Favourite’ icon which we have stamped
on select properties as our utmost seal of approval.
Of course, nothing goes on our website that we don’t rate exceptionally
but these places are particularly special to us.

Ampersand Best Seller

We have stamped this icon on all of our best selling itineraries –
firm favourites of ours and our clients.
All of Ampersand’s tours are tweaked and tailor-made to suit
your individual requirements, but these blueprints have been particularly popular
over the years for good reason!
