GREAT BRITAIN  •  AUGUST 13th – 25th, 2019

SCOTLAND, IRELAND, AND SCIENCE

The vistas, the seascapes and cityscapes, the music and museums, the monuments and the whisky — you’ll remember it all. But it’s the people of the British Isles who will give you the sense of place you’ll bring home. From Edinburgh to Liverpool, Northern Ireland to the Republic of Ireland, experience the region’s common cultural elements and distinctive local ways of life and perspectives.

Dover welcomes you with frescoed Roman ruins and World War II tunnels. Nearby countryside is home to two of the world’s great gardens, Sissinghurst and Great Dixter, and historic Canterbury Cathedral, a UNESCO site. Visit Scottish castles that hosted rebellions, cities that fostered the industrial revolution, and the people of the immortal Highlands. We have a long stop in Greenock so you can visit Edinburgh (instead of Glasgow) if you wish. Lunch at an Irish pub and tour Northern Ireland’s green countryside. Museum hop Liverpool. Dublin delights await. An overnight stay aboard ship in Cork means you have plenty of time to explore Ireland’s second city. Tarry along Cork’s River Lee, check out the ancient Ogham stones at University College, experience the lively farm-to-table food scene, and venture out to Blarney Castle so you’re never at a loss for words.

While at sea, enjoy extensive seminars (and exclusive receptions, too) with journalists and experts to have a deeper understanding of biology, astronomy, and engineering. Survey the terrain of the British Isles, from elemental to urbane.
