2023 Tour Details
Even if you’re not bold enough to try bubble and squeak, haggis and tatties, or cockles and laverbread, you’ll still enjoy this perfect sampling of England, Scotland, and Wales. Our most popular tour of Britain, this tri-country introductory vacation has something for everyone. History buffs will treasure prehistoric Stonehenge, the Roman ruins of Bath and the medieval cities and towns such as York and Ludlow. Music lovers will cherish the music-festival town of Llangollen and The Beatles’ hometown of Liverpool. Literary fans will relish the countryside homes of William Shakespeare, Sir Walter Scott, and William Wordsworth. And beer and whisky connoisseurs will savor the dimly lit pubs from London to Edinburgh and back—where if you just can’t bring yourself to taste the black pudding—there’s always delicious fish and chips!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. Board the high-speed Eurostar train from London to Paris, enjoy guided sightseeing and ample time on your own to explore the storied streets and inviting cafés along the Seine.

"Having spent most of my youth in the hospitality industry, I became a Tour Director many years ago. Originally from Edinburgh, I enjoy showing travelers Britain and Ireland-from Land's End and John O'Groats to Giant's Causeway and Waterford. It fills me with so much pride to show off the countries and tell the stories of my ancestors to our guests."
Escorting tours for more than 20 years
"What I love most is the magnificent scenery of the British Isles, the pleasure of being able to show travelers evidence of our long and varied history, and the opportunity to meet so many interesting people; both the travelers themselves and the people we encounter at the many stops along the way!"
Escorting tours for more than 5 years
"People often ask me how a Canadian ended up leading tours of the UK and Ireland. But with a British history degree, and a huge passion for the literature, culture, and history of the region, I really couldn't imagine a more perfect job. I get to introduce other travellers to a region I'm proud to call my second home, and that makes for an immensely satisfying day of work, every day."
