Since then, all aspects of Celts’ life have been changing, including leisure. Brought from the Roman Empire “tabernae” majorly serving food…

You may have had a pleasure of working with one of our agents, Luke? Luke hails from North Devon and we recently had the exciting opportunity to visit his home-region together. Using the last weeks of summer, this was a great opportunity for me to get to know the area and, of course, share my experiences with you! Devon is a stunning and somewhat underrated county of England. Often skipped-over in itineraries because of neighbouring Cornwall (another spectacular county), Devon is definitely worth visiting when exploring the South West England. Reachable by road and rail, it is located approximately 2.5 hrs from Bath. Valley of the Rocks From our base in the charming town of Barnstaple, we headed north towards…

In our previous blog post, we shared experiences from adeo’s recent familiarisation trip to Scottish capital city – Edinburgh. If you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, we highly recommend to start from that part, before we continue our adventure in the mystic land of Scotland – this time taking you to Scottish Highlands and the Isle of Skye. After leaving truly enchanting Edinburgh, our agents continued their drive to northern and wilder parts of the country. Darryl and Luke had the pleasure to enjoy stays in wonderful locations including Glencoe near Fort William, Inverness and Kylesku in the far Northern Highlands as well as Portree on the Isle of Skye; stopping along the way in various other…

Christmas and New Year are behind us, the days are growing longer again and we are busy getting ready for the 2022 season! To prepare, in November my colleagues travelled to the far north of Britain to stay in few hotels we work with and to see some of numerous attractions Scotland has to offer. A wonderful familiarisation trip brought new knowledge and many potential additions to our bespoke journeys, which we will gladly be recommending to our guests. The Bonham Hotel Flying from English Bristol to Scottish Glasgow, Darryl and Luke headed straight to the capital city, Edinburgh. With many beautiful hotels the city has to offer, our agents chose the one we have worked closely with for a…

Heading towards the end of the year, here at adeo Travel we have been reminiscing the changes and the reshaping of the travel industry. Focused on what we know the most – Britain – we wanted to share our thoughts about one specific type of tour, that has become a perfect solution for many visitors from around the world. As England, Scotland and Wales are well-connected nations with excellent transport links, an average visitor crossing the country have a host of travel options available! Youthful backpackers might tour by budget “Greyhound” style coaches and public busses; those seeking a luxurious experience might hire a driver to chauffeur them around; whilst independent travellers can opt for travelling via Britain’s excellent rail…

Spooky October is gone, Halloween parties are done and dusted, and many of us are already entering into the winter hibernation mode (maybe not quite like bears, but definitely close enough!). Before we head towards the end of the year however, we’re sticking with dark and eerie legends to tell you about some of the haunted castles of Wales, Scotland and England! Whatever your views or beliefs – whether you celebrate Halloween on 31st October, All Saint’s on 1st November, Dia de los Muertos on 2nd November or have another tradition – you’ve definitely heard ghost stories or watched horror movies! Aiming to bring some creeps and chills, the frightening myths have been told by humans for centuries. In different…
