UK Travel Guide

From its legendary landmarks and bustling cities to its rolling emerald hills, England is an unmissable country of contrasts.

Bustling cities, historic towns, cosy villages, traditional pubs, contemporary nightlife, epic national parks and gentle countryside, locally grown food and historic ruins: there are so many things to do in Britain. Historic culture meets modern culture in a mix that is as compelling as it is unique. The only question you need to ask is, where do I start?

Countries

Travel to the four nations that make up Great Britain, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. View London’s iconic skyline from the top of Tower Bridge. In Northern Ireland, explore the magical Glens of Antrim and the Giant’s Causeway, or hunt for the Loch Ness monster in the Scottish Highlands and sample haggis and fine whisky in Edinburgh’s restaurants. Visit the historic castles and ancient forests of Wales, try your hand at all kinds of adventurous sports, from ziplining to coasteering or discover the pace and energy of its capital Cardiff.
