Thousands of years’ worth of history, global cities and a rich variety of landscapes are some of the biggest draws of this four-nation European destination.  The United Kingdom packs in a lot of culture, history and scenery into its component parts of England, Wales, Scotland and Nortshern Ireland. From energetic London to the wild Scottish Highlands, from sleepy fishing villages to magnificent royal palaces and castles, there is much to see and do.

Experience the United Kingdom’s diverse natural scenery. Go hiking in the Scottish Highlands or through the valleys of Snowdonia in Wales. Enjoy a cycling tour of England’s Lake District. In Northern Ireland you can walk across the volcanic rock forms of the Giant’s Causeway.

Take your pick of fascinating historic sights. Tour Stonehenge, the prehistoric circle of giant stones that stands in Wiltshire, England. In London, visit Buckingham Palace, home to the British Royal Family since 1837. Learn about the monarchs who lost their heads at the Tower of London. In Scotland, find Linlithgow Palace, birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. Wales offers medieval castles and the remains of Roman fortresses.  

With cutting-edge theatre, world-class museums and concert venues, the United Kingdom will thrill those who are in search of culture.

Browse the extensive collections at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. The Titanic Experience in Belfast is where you can learn about the historic passenger liner at the place where it was constructed. If you are in Cardiff, book tickets for a concert at the Wales Millennium Centre

If you feel like a day at the sea, the United Kingdom has many excellent beaches. Popular resorts include Blackpool in England and Sandwood Bay in Scotland. Wales has a coastal path that follows its entire coastline.

For those who want a busy nightlife, stay in the main cities such as London, Belfast, Edinburgh and Cardiff. For a quieter time, book a room in a castle or a secluded lakeside cottage.
