England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are fine destinations in their own right, and travels between these countries reveal both the shared culture and distinct local flavours that contribute to the UK. Few places cram in as much scenery, history and culture as the United Kingdom it is a busy, eccentric and unique destination; a land of daft humour, tea-and-cake clichés and a thousand and one different personalities; a land where thrusting cities like London, Glasgow and Manchester share map space with the peaks of Snowdonia and the colossal slopes of the Highlands.
London remains the natural focal point. Its skyline, mixing medieval turrets with soaring steel, is a good marker for the place as a whole. From its markets to its museums, its pubs to its palaces, it’s a bona fide world city packed with diversity. But you don’t have to look far to find other cities like Oxford, Cambridge, Bath and Edinburgh, offering postcard-perfect medieval skylines. Britain is often extremely beautiful, seaside towns, national parks and honey-stoned villages with the scenic Lake District and just to mention some of it’s endless cultural associations – Shakespeare, Henry VIII, Hogwarts, The Beatles, Braveheart, Monty Python and of course the Royal Family.
