Experience the UK & Ireland

Whether you're looking for cultural discoveries, a fun family escape, have a specific interest in food, art, architecture or the great outdoors, or are looking to plan a honeymoon or trip of a lifetime, the UK & Ireland has so much to offer. As specialists in luxury tailor-made tours to the region, we can help you discover whatever it is you are looking for on your holiday to the UK & Ireland. To make it easier to plan your next great escape, we have put together a range of special interest trips. Everything we do at Ampersand is tailor-made, but let these itineraries inspire you, whether you are interested in scaling Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles, touring the Scottish Highlands by train, not leaving your room on your honeymoon, or spending Christmas as a family at one of favourite country-house hotels.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.
