Edinburgh, London, extension to Dublin

Put on your walking shoes and take to the streets of two of Europe’s most spellbinding cities.

Still going strong after nearly 900 years, Edinburgh’s dramatic cityscape includes a medley of tangled cobbled streets in Old Town and the quiet elegance of New Town. In London, you’ll discover exactly what made a quarter of the world run through the Thames.
