Uncover mystical prehistoric monuments, Roman remains, Anglo-Saxon hordes and castles galore. Explore vibrant and dazzlingly diverse cities with treasure-stuffed museums and striking modern architecture. England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are all proudly different but together create a country crammed with history, culture and natural beauty.
Despite its size, the UK has diverse and dramatic landscapes: brooding peaks and moors, rolling fields, ancient woodlands, towering cliffs and golden beaches. There is so much to do and see, that it’s hard to know where to start. London, Oxford, York, Edinburgh and Bath should all be top of your list with their famous landmarks, cultural institutions and fantastic food scenes. As should Cornwall with its spectacular coastline while the dramatic beauty of Scotland needs to be explored to be believed.
It might have a rep for dreary weather but don’t be fooled. There’s plenty of good days and never a dull moment in the UK. Even if the weather does stop play, there’s always a cosy pub to shelter in.
