British Isles by Season
The Mist & The Stone Tours are offered all year
and are available for adventures
in Scotland, Wales, England, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Any time of the year is good to visit The United Kingdom and Ireland.
Early spring through late summer you will find the British Isles become
one big, beautiful garden. The weather is mild and it is the perfect time
to bask in the long, gentle days.Country lanes and coastal paths become
bouquets of wild flowers and the magnificent rhododendrons fill the whole
country with explosions of brilliant colors.
Late spring and all summer are the perfect times to see Crop Circles
in Britain. Glorious days are spent crop circle hunting from one lush green
field to the next. The excitement of sighting of one of these mysterious
and beautiful designs woven into the "corn" is undescribable.
Travel roads that will take you far from the madding crowd
with The Mist & The Stone Tours of the British Isles.
The fetes and fairs throng with music and laughter and long walks along
the coastal cliffs, through moor and countryside will lead you to a fine
pub for a good meal and a pint of local ale.
A lovely Irish summer garden.
By autumn, most vacationers have returned home and the whole world belongs
to you. This is when the secrets of the beautiful fall gardens are told.
The trees hold their brilliant colors through November in the south and
the bracken on the moors is a chestnut brown against green fields stretching
across the dramatic landscape.
The villages and churches are filled with the excitement of the Harvest
Festivals and the markets are full of wonderful treasures of antiques,
art and homemade crafts and foods.
The whole countryside inhales the last breath before winter
and all is alive with celebration as Christmas nears. December is lovely.
Candlelit churches are in their seasonal decor of the holly and the ivy
and the halls of quaint villages are decked for markets, festivals and
fetes. It is a wonderful time to shop for unusual gifts and antiques. The
whole country turns into a stained glass window as Christmas lights reflect
off the wet, bustling streets. Carols fill the churches and Cathedrals
and rosy cheeked school children giggle and laugh as they skip down the
ancient street on their way home to Christmas cake and tea. The mornings
are crisp and clear and the days are cool making for brisk walks ending
at ancient inns by cozy fires where hot soups, crusty bread and cider mulling
since the 14th century appear before you.
Early winter can be both gentle and dramatic, but always
beautiful. Great storms rage off the Atlantic sending spectacular waves
crashing into brilliant sun drenched cliffs. One will find themselves wonderfully
swept away by the headland winds at Tintagel and later the same day picking
daffodils in the warm sun of Penzance.
