The United Kingdom is made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Britain's diversity ensures there is something for everyone, and is packed with historic monuments, royal palaces and some of the world's top museums. You could visit the house where Shakespeare was born, climb cathedral spires and uncover the Tower of London's dark history. London's skyline is a mixture of medieval turrets and soaring steel, a city packed full of diversity and one of the most popular destinations to visit on the planet.
Discover the romance of Jane Austen's Bath and the vast variety of shops in buzzing Bournemouth and throw yourself into some of the best global cuisine that is sure to leave your taste buds wanting more. Visit the spectacular White Cliffs of Dover, which are seen best at sea and explore Kent, known as the 'garden of England' and for good reason, with picturesque villages and a rolling countryside that is pure perfection.
At the centre of Northern Ireland is Belfast, the birthplace of the RMS Titanic and now a bustling city full luxury hotels, trendy bars, and chic restaurants just waiting for you to explore. Northern Ireland will introduce you to ancient castles that are as numerous here as anywhere else in Europe and the awe-inspiring Giant’s Causeway, a set of huge hexagonal stone columns. In this part of the world you'll find some of the most unspoiled scenery you could ever hope for; including the granite Mountains of Mourne, more than 320 kilometres of coastline beaches and hidden coves and Europe's largest freshwater lake: Lough Neagh.
The United Kingdom's most northern country is Scotland, a land of beautiful mountains and wildernesses such as the Cairngorms and Northwest Highlands intermingled with glacial glens and lochs. Despite it's small size, this country 'packs a punch' from its capital Edinburgh, with its iconic hilltop castle and Glasgow, a city famed for its vibrant cultural scene to the mythical Loch Ness monster, a peculiar fondness for haggis and the kilt, which is one of the most iconic ways to express your Scottish roots. This rugged, colourful, and feisty country stands apart from the rest.
