England is home to Royal history, myth and legend dating back to the solstice worshippers who created the magnificent stone circle of Stonehenge.
The NoteWorthy team provides exquisite experiences across England, with many of our clients choosing to experience the cosmopolitan buzz of our cities before a retreat to the rural idyll of the countryside.
Popular destinations include London, Windsor, the Cotswolds and Bath, while experiences range from attendance at iconic British events such as the Chelsea Flower Show, to behind-the-scenes tours of military barracks, as well as visits to museums, monuments, castles and palaces. We know areas even the locals don’t know.
Scotland is renowned for its craggy munros and forested glens, with a proud history of fierce clans, noble families and outlaws on the run.
Travelling with NoteWorthy gives you and your family an authentic flavour of Scotland with experiences you will struggle to find between the pages of a guidebook. With NoteWorthy, you can visit local bagpipe makers, sample award-winning malt whisky and step behind the ropes into the private areas of the country’s most important castles.
Ireland is consistently rated one of the world’s top destinations to discover by Condé Nast Traveler, with exceptional food, history and famously friendly hospitality. It is also the ancestral motherland of over 55 million American citizens.
NoteWorthy specialises in bespoke high-end tours across the Emerald Isle, with our friends and contacts ensuring a truly localised, authentic experience. Clients can explore the land of their ancestors, from Dublin’s cathedral and libraries, to the wild west coast of Galway, experiencing its cultural highlights, from art and music, to its famous whisky and stout.
Paris is a living monument to centuries of European culture. The so-called City of Light is overflowing with breathtaking architecture, independent eateries and world-class art.
At NoteWorthy, we use our network of contacts and friends in Paris to create bespoke itineraries with experiences that will create a lifetime of memories. Clients can take trips out of the city to the dazzling Palace of Versailles or Monet’s garden at Giverny, attend concerts in the world-famous Notre-Dame cathedral and discover the priceless works of art in the Louvre on a private tour. For those who enjoy shopping, Europe’s haute couture ateliers scatter the streets like candy. Clients are accompanied by a fluent French-speaking guide and an English-speaking driver to ensure that everything from navigation to checking into your hotel is a seamless process.
Normandy has a colourful history as a seedbed of inspiration for the 19th-century Impressionist artist movement and the site of the D-Day beaches, where tens of thousands of British and American troops were dropped on the coast of France during the Second World War.
This richly storied region has a much quieter tone to it than Paris. The cities of Caen and Rouen are home to soaring medieval cathedrals and fine art collections, while the region as a whole is a gastronomic delight, with local specialties from artisan cheeses to fine cider, Calvados, and of course, snails. Our fluent French-speaking guides will bring the history of the Second World War to life, while those who have a particular interest in the D-Day landings can board the HMS Belfast, Britain’s last surviving Second World War battleship, when you return to London.
Our little black book of contacts stretches from pole to pole, so wherever you are in the world, NoteWorthy can give you access to the best people and experiences.
Whether it’s an after-hours private tour of Italy’s Vatican or tracking mountain gorillas in Rwanda, clients can experience the planet’s most captivating places with advice from our tried and tested partners.
We can recommend specialist operators across the globe, including Africa, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, and the Turks and Caicos, as well as private villas and chalets all over Europe.
Previous NoteWorthy itineraries have included highlight tours of Italy with private cooking lessons and garden visits along the Amalfi coast, summer water-based adventures in the Canadian rockies, and private bushcamp safaris in Kenya’s Masai Mara.
We can secure room upgrades, food, beverage and spa credits in the hotels of your choice, but most importantly, we can promise the same level of luxury and attention to detail that makes NoteWorthy’s operations across the UK, Ireland, Paris and Normandy such a success.
