Discover history, the Royal Family and London
You don't always have to travel long distance for a stunning holiday, the United Kingdom, has a vast amount to offer and you might want to consider the natural beauty on your doorstep.
Steeped in history, Great Britain has the Royal Family, endless castles, architecture, the great outdoors and an increasingly buzzing food scene to keep you entertained.
Of course there's London. One of the world’s most spectacular cities, London is the heartbeat of England and has something to offer at every hour of the day or night. You can wander through Covent Garden or Leicester Square, gaze at the majesty of Buckingham Palace or simply go shopping on Oxford Street. It’s all there and just a short ride on the iconic tube.
Experience vibrant cities and rural havens
The United Kingdom has way more to offer than just one city, though, and it’s a nation of contrasts. Birmingham, Manchester and even Edinburgh can lay claim to being just as beautiful and intriguing in their own special way, and all of them have caught up in terms of the facilities, shopping and restaurants. Britain has an inordinate number of world famous chefs and so you’ll find a Michelin star in almost every major city these days. You can even find them in the countryside.
The United Kingdom still has some of the most breathtaking views in the world; from the Lake District, the Welsh borders, the Scottish Highlands and even the forests and parks within London itself, there is a vast amount of unspoilt countryside that you can reach within a day and be lost in a tranquil oasis.
The traditional English seaside
