toursYou’ve been contemplating a trip through the trifecta of Anglo-Saxon history: Scotland, Ireland, and Britain. Would you rather be completely spontaneous? Certainly spontaneity can be fun, but why risk missing out on a personalized itinerary and making the most of your time and money? Savvy travelers embrace a vacation package that suits their desires perfectly. One way to maximize your vacation experience would be to take the scenic route and enjoy what planned luxury tours, whether independent, escorted, or group, have to offer. And for film and television fans, these tours can even take you to some of the most famous film sets in cinema history.

Harry Potter, Game Of Thrones, And Braveheart All Filmed At British Castles

Scotland, Ireland, and Britain no doubt have some of the most beautiful castles, landmarks, and scenic attractions in the world. As a vacation destination, this corner of Europe has a lot to offer. As a result, it can be overwhelming to decide what you want to see and when you want to see it, depending on the time you have available. There are more than 30,000 castles and castle ruins spread throughout the 32,595 sq miles of Ireland, and you don’t want to miss a beat. Not only can you visit historical sites, but you can also explore iconic destinations featured in such films and television shows as “Braveheart,” “Mary Poppins,” or even “Game of Thrones.” Big and small screen entertainment is often an escape from reality for 1-2 hours of your life. You can make it your true reality by booking a small group tour of Ireland or a private guided tour of Scotland for a more memorable experience.

Braveheart In Real Life: Separating Fact From Fiction

Fiction: The iconic movie “Braveheart” was shot entirely in Scotland because it is based loosely on the story of a Scottish war hero. Fact: “Braveheart” was filmed in both Scotland and Ireland. According to Scotland: The movie location guide, the Scottish scenes were filmed in and around Glen Coe, Glen Nevis, and the Mamore mountains. The Irish filming sites included Trim Castle and Dunsoghly Castle. As a tourist, filming locations may not be as obvious as Big Ben in Mary Poppins, which is why planning a Scotland Castle tour or a Castle vacation tour in Ireland with a seasoned tour guide as your chauffeur would be beneficial. You can arrange to see the actual castle depicted in “Braveheart,” the interior of Mornay’s castle, filmed in Edinburgh Council Chamber, High Street, Edinburgh.

Relax and let yourself take in the experience

Even if you haven’t wrecked your brain trying to figure out where James Bond traveled through all of his twenty six movies or how to get to Monty Python’s Holy Grail, you shouldn’t have to wreck your brain trying to figure out how to get an all-inclusive experience. Take the guesswork out of it all and plan the best tour of England, Scotland and Ireland that you can. Customize it with a knowledgeable tour guide and it could make the difference between hearing the generic “Top of the Mornin to Ya!” or “Céad míle fáilte?” The latter is a traditional Irish welcome meaning “a hundred thousand welcomes.” While the first phrase is one that many are familiar with and has become synonymous with a pleasant Irish saying, it does nothing to represent the feeling associated with a warm personalized Irish hello. Leave it to the ones who have years of experience operating travel tours and you’ll feel right at home. The population of Ireland has grown from 4,588,252 in 2011 to almost 5 million in 2019, and after your tour, you may want to become a part of the population! Get ready to take it in, and book your vacation package now, before winter really does come.
