2018 Tours Featuring Britain & Ireland On Sale Now


LITTLETON, Colorado – October 11, 2017 – For 2018, Globus is unveiling vacations that shine a light on England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Inside the dimly lit pubs, the sunlit castles and the candlelit cottages that rest along the countryside, travelers can find incredible adventures and great prices. There’s no better time to raise a glass, raise your sights and raise the roof – the thatched roof – to the United Kingdom.

“From the rock stars of Abbey Road to the famous rocks of Stonehenge, our tours shed light on all that Great Britain offers,” said Scott Nisbet, president and chief executive officer for the Globus family of brands. “We hit everything from the storied streets of London and Edinburgh to cathedrals, theatres and museums. We even hit a few golf balls at legendary St. Andrew’s.”

Now, Globus is inviting travelers to heed the call of ancient kings and queens, rhythmic Scottish drums and even the bright red phone booths along the sidewalks of jolly England with a robust portfolio of 20 vacation itineraries that range from 7 to 25 days, including:
