Who we are
Our Location & history
Until early 2008 myguideBritain was located in rural south Wales before the office was re-located to the thriving commercial centre of Glasgow , Scotland. Located on the banks of the river Clyde, Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and in recent years has become one of Scotland' major tourist hubs. Home to diverse architecture from the grand Victorian and Georgian statues and facaded buildings of George Square through to modern developments like the “armadillo” theatre and Science centre Glasgow has always been on the cutting edge. Glasgow was Europe's “City of Culture” in 1990 and won its bid to host the Commonwealth games in 2014. The city's central location and excellent communication networks allow you to travel all over Scotland, the north of England and even be in London in a matter of hours.

myguideBritain's roots lie with our sister website, the Ireland vacation experts, myguideIreland, which was established in 1998.
In 2004 myguideIreland opened an office located in Wales, UK, recruited a team of local experts with the same passion for England, Scotland and Wales as the 3 friends shared for Ireland and myguideBritain was born. myguideBritain used the same tried and tested concept of selling customized vacations to the UK.
In 2011, both websites (myguideBritain & myguideIreland) were bought by Irish Tourism .com Limited based in Newcastlewest in County Limerick Ireland who continue to offer the best support for visitors to both countries from their head office and their sales office in Skibbereen, County Cork.
