The United Kingdom is made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and the geography sweeps from mountainous highlands, to green and pleasant rolling countryside and vibrant cities. The country is jam-packed with two millennia of heritage, making visits of any length of time feel too short.

London is the UK’s biggest city, a fantastic and frenetic metropolis teeming with people of all races, creeds and walks of life. Here the old contrasts spectacularly with the new, offering some of the world’s most famous sights and an unrivalled nightlife. Travelling through the country will reveal its diversity, from quiet country lanes and inland waterways to majestic stately homes and castles.

The medieval cathedral cities of York and Durham reveal a rich history of a bygone age, while the industrial cities of Liverpool and Newcastle both harbor an exciting nightlife. The beauty of the Lake District remains almost untouched, and Edinburgh’s International Arts Festival draws talent from around the world. The United Kingdom remains one of the world’s most popular sightseeing destinations drawing high numbers of repeat visitors inspired by its effortless combination of historical splendor and vibrant modernity.

Although there is so much to see and do, Britain is very compact which makes it fairly easy to get between the sights. The entire country is laced with railway lines, frequently duplicated by bus routes, although for longer excursions it may be better to fly with one of the discount airlines like BMI, Ryanair and Easyjet.
