You may have wondered around New York City or Monument Valley and felt like you had stepped into the silver screen. Here in Britain, this feeling is frequently felt all around our country. Whether it be from the mesmeric Cornish Coast and the setting of Poldark, to the rolling hills and shimmering lochs of Scotland used as the backdrop for some of the Harry Potter movies’ most famous shots, you are never too far from a piece of movie history. Here is a top 6 of the best filming locations for you to enjoy: 6) CARDIFF - SHERLOCK, DOCTOR WHO, TORCHWOOD Nestled on the South Wales coast, Cardiff is home to many iconic moments from the BBC in recent years.

It’s that wonderful time of year again. The temperatures are colder (especially in Scotland, the North of England and Wales), the food tastes better, and relatives bombard you with gifts of deodorant/after-shave sets and socks. Whilst clear similarities are there between the UK and the US, our Christmases differ on several obvious, but also a number of lesser-known traditions. For this blog, we will focus solely on these differences and traditions that are unique to Britain! Here are seven examples: 1) Christmas Eve – More recently, Christmas Eve has primarily been adopted as a day of celebration away from your family.

Driving in Britain Tips

Harry November 24, 2016

One of the more frequently raised topics regarding our self-drive tours here at adeo Travel are concerns about driving in Britain, namely about operating a vehicle on the left-hand side of the road during your time here. This blog should help quash some of your fears about driving in our country and make you feel a little bit more relaxed before your Britain vacation. When you enquire for a self-drive tour here at adeo Travel, as standard we will include a rental car with an automatic transmission. Although the majority of cars here in Britain are of manual transmission, we feel that having an automatic car will give our guests a smoother transition into driving in Britain. Although we give you directions to each ...

Here at adeo Travel, we are always here to help if you have any queries before, during or after travel. One of the most frequently asked questions that we receive is to do with when to travel in Britain. This blog should help answer some of the questions you might have. If you are a fan of hot weather, our temperatures reach their peak in July & August so consider enquiring for these months if you want to attempt to catch a tan while on your travels (the heat here may not be as intense as where you are from!). Certain events such as the Edinburgh Tattoo only occur in August so if you are interested in being immersed in Scottish culture then this month is definitely for you. For those of you that wish to avoid the crowd, ...

As you may have seen from my last blog, recently I had the opportunity to go on one of our more popular group tours the ‘Highlights of Britain’. We had an early start from the centre of London, where everyone met in a timely fashion. Once the luggage was loaded onto the mini-coach, we headed straight for Oxford. It was here that we had our own personal walking tour of the city by a local resident who was very knowledgeable of all the sites and answered all questions our group had with accuracy. It was especially great to learn about the history of the famous Oxford University while inside the buildings themselves and having plenty of picture opportunities. After the walking tour, we were allowed two hours to ...

One of our packages we offer here at Adeo are small-group tours, so you can imagine my excitement and expectation when I learned that this month I would have the opportunity to go on a small-group tour myself! When enquiring, guests sometimes ask us what makes our small-group tours unique. Hopefully my personal experiences can help you out if you are stuck on deciding which type of Britain vacation is for you. Upon my arrival in London, I looked forward to a chance to broaden my knowledge of our products (along with a chance to get out of the office!). My suitcase was then taken off my hands and loaded into the coach, as was a theme for the rest of the trip. Porterage is one of the main focal points in small-group tours; ...
