With the spiritual tours, there is an inner journey and an outer journey. The outer journey is visiting inspirational places of worship but the inner journey is always very individual.

On these tours, people tend to reflect on their own profound answer to universal questions. What is the meaning of life? How does one achieve happiness and peace? And what happens after death? These tours can be a catalyst to understanding both ourselves and others.

Would you love to kneel in Westminster Abbey where the Coronation of all British Kings and Queens have been carried out since 1066, where Royal weddings and celebrations take place and where great kings, statesmen, poets, warriors, musicians and scientists are buried?

Or perhaps you would like to experience the wonder of the Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, Europe's first and largest traditional Hindu temple outside of India. This stunning temple is made from Indian marble, hand-carved by over 1,500 craftsmen with each, individually numbered piece shipped to London for assembly of the giant 3D jigsaw.

The London Mosque, with its beautiful gold dome, was presented to the Muslim community of Great Britain by the British Government in 1940. The intention was to give British Muslims a base from where they could conduct affairs pertaining to their faith.

In Scotland, you can find the Kagyu Samye Ling, the first and largest Tibetan Centre and Buddhist Monastery in the West. This magnificent Tibetan Temple is also a centre for the preservation of Tibetan Buddhism, arts, medicine and culture. It is part of the Rokpa Trust, a non-profit umbrella organisation with branches in humanitarian, healing and spiritual areas of activity of which the Holy Island Project dedicated to world peace, interfaith spirituality and ecological sustainability is also part.

Perhaps you do not follow a particular religious path but would love to know more about lesser known spiritual places and beliefs. The circle of stones, forming a monument at Stonehenge is believed to have been an ancient site of worship and it is one of the Wonders of the World. Another amazing ancient site is Avebury where the triangular and columnar stones were paired together, representing sexual symbolism to represent the cycle of birth, life and death.

 

St Peter and St Paul

 

Britain probably has one of the most diverse religious and spiritual traditions in the world. The British Commonwealth encountered many faiths and some of the indigenous people relocated to Great Britain. They brought with them their own wealth of tradition and spirituality which can be seen today; from Buddhist Temples to Christian Churches; from Hindu Temples to Muslim Mosques and from Stonehenge to Celtic (pagan) places of worship.
