The UK may be small but it has a rich history and a diverse culture ready and waiting to be uncovered. In London, England’s capital, you’ll find enough to keep you busy for weeks with Westminster and Big Ben, Hyde Park and St Paul’s Cathedral all obvious highlights. Outside of the capital, the scenery changes to allow for beautiful countryside, spectacular coasts (especially in the likes of Dorset, Devon and Cornwall) and quintessentially British towns and villages such as Bath, Oxford and Cambridge.
Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland, and is dominated by its castle. Each summer the city comes to life with its world-famous comedy festival and again draws in visitors from around the world later in the year with its incredible New Year’s celebrations. Wales is best known for its rolling hills and undeveloped coastlines, with a stay in Snowdonia high on the list of those who love the outdoors. Northern Ireland is centred around buzzing Belfast. This capital also has a wide range of castles to explore and the huge hexagonal stone columns of the Giant’s Causeway.
