London, Oxford, Stratford, Bath, extension to Dublin

It’s no secret that the family tree of history’s greatest writers is rooted in England.

Shakespeare, Milton, Chaucer, Dickens, whoever can be credited for Beowulf—on it goes. See why Jane Austen despised Bath, and what giants like C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien found on Oxford’s idyllic campus. In England, there’s a story everywhere, and you have the chance to write your own.

    Irish evening

    Irish evening

    Break out your penny whistles and tune up your banjos because tonight, you’ll be celebrating with authentic Irish music makers. With a hearty Irish meal in front of you, you’ll be regaled by skilled musicians with a native passion for the traditional music and language of Éire. Here, music is so completely intertwined with the past that each lilting song carries a kind of timeless sorrow, joy and regret that brings you closer to the Celtic spirit than ever before.
