With a Royal Wedding on the horizon, there has been a buzz about Britain recently. Make a day of it and bring the family across the pond for a Royal Wedding-inspired tour with CIE Tours.


Showcase the Best of Britain with the family along the tour of the same name for nine–10 days. Hit all the top spots from Windsor Castle, Edinburgh Castle, Roman baths, Tower of London, Stonehenge, Cardiff Castle and a variety of local stops. Get to know authentic British music, food, culture and gardens.


Enjoy one- to two-night stays in Macdonald Windsor Hotel, York Marriott, Dalhousie Castle Hotel, Hilton Hotel Liverpool, Clayton Hotel Cardiff and Radisson Blu Edwardian Grafton Hotel — clearly, your family will cover some serious territory on this trip. Be sure to pack your walking shoes, layer up and get some sleep for the big days ahead.


Get to know your fellow travelers during the welcome dinner in Windsor and prepare to party during the Scottish evening event in Edinburgh. Finally, expect music, libations and dancing during some Welsh dinner festivities. All ages are welcome to immerse in the cultural celebrations and let loose.

Check out specific family tours, group rates and custom tours that can be specifically designed for your family. Take the work out of it and opt for a preplanned tour, with prices ranging $2,370–2,820 per person, depending on availability and time of year.


One of the perks of a jam-packed tour like this is, on a two-week vacation, your family can take a little more than half the trip to fit in as much sightseeing and exploring as possible across the whole of Britain and find time at the beginning or end for some alone time.


No time to book before the Royal Wedding? No problem. Check out the August excursions, including the unique opportunity for the royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo —ideal for the older kids with even more history.
