United Kingdom

Experience some fine British food, spectacular sights and London life whilst visiting the UK. Visit Scotland's sparkling lochs and moors, experience a true culture tour round some of the world's most illustrious museums, and witness the beauty of some of the oldest castles and monuments around.

England’s capital city London is one of the world’s busiest hubs for business, economics and political influence in both Europe and abroad. With many recognizable landmarks such as Big Ben, the London Eye and St. Paul’s Cathedral, London is a must-see on your trip to the UK.

Visit Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-Upon-Avon, followed by a Harry Potter tour in the actual studios in which they were filmed. Make sure to visit the National Museum or the Tate Britain, and drop into Madame Tussauds on your way home.

Further afield, there are some iconic landscapes that will take your breath away: the Yorkshire Dales, the Scottish Highlands and the rugged Welsh mountains are just a few examples. Visit some of the world’s oldest buildings dating as far back as 3700 BC, including the picturesque university towns of Oxford and Cambridge.

Spend a day in the stunning Cotswolds, and don’t forget to sample a hearty and delicious Sunday roast in a local countryside pub, topped off with a pint and probably some rain!
