UK Travel Guide

For a relatively small island, the UK is packed with interesting places to explore, ancient treasures waiting to be discovered and lots to see and do. There is something for everyone from the preserved heritage and history, vibrant cities and towns to the national parks and rolling countryside.

Travelling around the UK, it is easy to navigate and there are plenty of different counties and landscapes to explore from the highlands in Scotland to the coastlines of Cornwall. Everyone is well catered for in the UK from families with great family holiday locations to couples looking for a city break to friends looking for adventure activities.

The UK is well-known for its English heritage and ancient history and attracts tourists from across the globe. Visitors will find specific cultural attractions such as Hadrian Wall in Northumberland and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London to historic houses and castles such as Warwick Castle in Warwickshire and Chatsworth House in Derbyshire. There are also many notably historic cities to explore such as York and Oxford with their beautiful old buildings and architecture.

The UK is also home to many nature and national parks with lots of outdoor activities for adventure and fun. The Lakes District is very popular with its imposing high peaks, large lakes and expansive forests. Here you can experience everything from canoeing and boating on one of the many lakes to hiking and biking through the hills and mountains.

If you are looking for a place to take the whole family there are many family friendly locations across the UK. Many head to the coastlines and seaside resorts in Devon and Cornwall where there is plenty to do for everyone. Here you will find some of the country's best beaches and scenic countryside.

When it comes to city breaks, the UK has plenty to choose from across the country. The capital, London is a must see with its royal connections and history, shopping, museums and galleries, restaurants and west end shows.

For a city on a smaller scale that still offers a lot, head to Edinburgh in Scotland. There is still plenty to see and do with the imposing castle sitting above the city, royal connections, shopping and nightlife. Take a walk around the city and view the beautiful old architecture and buildings or navigate the attractions through to ensure you visit as much as possible during your stay.
