S1, E1: Ultimate UK

Available on iTunes
S1 E1: Globe Trekker travellers Ian Wright, Megan McCormick, Jonathan Atherton and Justine Shapiro travel the length and breadth of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland to experience the best of the countries’ heritage, history, nature, festivals, food and drink and eccentric traditions! Our team start off by looking at the monarchy in different periods of England’s history; Ian visits Windsor castle whilst Jonathan learns about the bloody and gory past of the Tower of London. Although the United Kingdom doesn’t hold the best reputation for food, our travellers tuck in to all manner of delightful and doubtful food; from the cooked English breakfast to deep fried chocolate bars, jellied eels and Cornish pasties. Strange sports are sampled, from dog racing in North London to grand horse racing at Ascot, bizarre road bowling in Northern Ireland and the Highland Games in Scotland. Our travellers complete their journeys by taking in some of the UK’s most stunning vistas, from atop the Scottish Highlands, Northern Ireland’s Giants Causeway and Wales’ Snowdonia.
