15 Day Britain & Ireland 2

This tour is an alternative to the 15 day Britain and Ireland tour, beginning in Scotland and finishing in Ireland. This one includes a day in beautiful Pembrokeshire, South Wales, a scenic day in Scotland and visits to Bath, Glastonbury, Stonehenge and Salisbury. St David's Cathedral is set in a hollow and, in our opinion, is one of the most beautiful venues in which a choir can sing.
