Tour Northern Ireland, learning about its fascinating history and visiting amazing natural sights, and hear a talk from former Chief Correspondent, BBC News' Kate Adie.

Few places in the UK give as vivid an insight into our nation's recent history as Northern Ireland, whose tumultuous experience of the 20th century is a story as gripping as it is moving.

On this six-day trip you'll explore the very best of Northern Ireland's history and also see its breathtaking natural wonders, with an expert talk from Kate Adie. Starting in Belfast, you'll visit the site where the Titanic was designed, built and launched, and you'll tour the streets and historical sites that featured during The Troubles. Those who have seen the critically acclaimed film, Belfast, may recognise some of the locations.

Then you'll follow the famous coast road through the Glens of Antrim to Ballycastle for a whiskey tasting and tour, before walking along the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Giant's Causeway.

As well as city tours of Derry and Armagh, you'll also visit an open-air museum celebrating Irish emigration to North America, and the Hillsborough Castle and Gardens, Northern Ireland's only royal residence.

Kate is the BBC's former Chief News Correspondent who reported regularly from conflicts around the world, covering the Troubles for over a decade.
