Samson and Goliath are much-loved landmarks soaring above Belfast's skyline. The two great, yellow-painted, gantry cranes are a reminder of the shipbuilding industry that put Northern Ireland's capital firmly on the map. Housed in an iconic, state-of-the-art, 6-storey building, Titanic Belfast relives the city's golden era and traces the story of the ill-fated liner built in the shipyards of Harland & Wolff. At the heart of today's cosmopolitan city is Belfast's elegant City Hall, which stands in Donegal Square. The extraordinary Giant's Causeway is a popular excursion from this city with omnipresent Irish charm.
Thurs 3rd Sept
The capital of the Emerald Isle is, with its friendly locals, fascinating history, legendary literary tradition and charming mix of medieval, Georgian and modern architecture, a city of unforgettable character. It lies on the east coast of Ireland along the banks of the River Liffey. Dublin Castle, Christchurch Cathedral, Trinity College and the beautiful square St Stephen's Green lie south of the Liffey, whilst the glorious Custom House, majestic Four Courts and famous General Post Office add grace to Dublin's Northside. Crossing the river the high-arched Ha'penny Bridge is one of Dublin's most famous landmarks.
Fri 4th Sept
Britain's only island archipelago, the magical Isles of Scilly lie just 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall. St Mary's, the largest of the five inhabited islands, is a delight with white sand beaches, tranquil waters and stunning seascapes. The attractive village of Hugh Town, considered the 'capital', is the hub of the islands' activity. The second largest and the only privately-owned island is Tresco, where, in the glorious Abbey Gardens, some 20,000 exotic species thrive in the sub-tropical climate. Optional excursions explore both St. Mary's and Tresco, two of the beautiful cluster of islands that are worlds apart from everyday life.
Sat 5th Sept
For over 800 years Castle Cornet has stood guard over St. Peter Port. The attractive town is a delight with cobbled streets, steep stairways and alleyways winding their way down between the houses to a picturesque waterfront of grey and white stone buildings. Guernsey is geographically closer to France, yet loyal to the British crown, and this is reflected in the wonderful Anglo-French ambience around the town. The second largest of the Channel Islands has a wonderful coastline with beautiful bays, and pastoral scenery that includes the handsome, much-prized Guernsey dairy cows. The tax-free haven is perfect for duty-free shopping.
Sun 6th Sept
A dynamic and vibrant waterfront city, Portsmouth is an irresistible mix of history and heritage. The city is home to one of the most important naval bases in the United Kingdom and the Historic Dockyard reveals 800 years of naval history. The Mary Rose Museum, and the famous warships HMS Victory and HMS Warrior further illustrate Portsmouth's rich maritime history. On June 6th 1944 a massive military task force set out from England to the shores of Normandy. Find out more about the invasion that marked the beginning of the end in the marvellous D-Day Museum.
Monday 7th Sept
Lying some 75 miles from the Seine estuary, Rouen is the historic capital of Normandy. Victor Hugo called Rouen 'the city of a hundred spires'. Its Old Town is a delightful maze of narrow, cobblestone streets lined with fine half-timbered houses and wonderful gothic churches including the magnificent Cathedrale Notre Dame and the Eglise St. Maclou. Rouen's Place du Vieux-Marche is famous as the site where Joan of arc was burned at the stake in 1431. Further upriver is the village of Giverny and the home of Claude Monet, who captured the beauty of Rouen in many of his paintings.
Tues 8th Sept
Over the years many renowned painters and writers have been attracted to pretty Hornfleur, which with its narrow, half-timbered houses, cobblestone streets and charming old harbour set in a sheltered cove off the Seine's tidal estuary, is simply enchanting. Unlike many of its Normandy neighbours, Hornfleur was spared during the bombing of World War Two and nestled in its tidy, picturesque streets historic buildings house art galleries, artists' studios, boutiques, restaurants, cafes and fine souvenir shops.
