United Kingdom Experiences

  • Home to magnificent natural landscapes, thousands of miles of rugged coastline, and a blend of old and new attractions, the UK is one of the most diverse destinations in Europe.
  • Scotland in the north boasts huge lochs, snow-capped peaks, and remote islands only inhabited by birds and animals, as well as ancient towns and cities such as Edinburgh with its famous castle, or Inverness, where the legendary Loch Ness Monster is said to lurk in the freshwater lake.
  • In England, you’ll find miles of green countryside, dense woodlands, rolling hills, and spectacular beaches. The UK and England’s capital London is multi-cultural and rich in history, with opulent royal residences such as Buckingham Palace, the River Thames that snakes its way through the buzzing city, and the Shard, Europe’s tallest building.
  • Stratford-upon-Avon was the home of William Shakespeare, and you can watch a play at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Further south, you can sunbathe on golden sand beaches or go surfing in Devon, before treating yourself to a delicious traditional cream tea. Take a hiking trip up to Mount Snowdon in Wales, where you’ll find panoramic vistas across the ocean towards Ireland.
  • Cardiff, the capital of Wales, is a coastal city home to Millennium Stadium, with its large sports events and concerts. In Northern Ireland, you can trek along deep valleys, or climb the soaring Slieve Donard Mountain for a taste of the outdoors. Belfast Castle is a must-see, and the Ulster Museum has thousands of artefacts, some dating back 9,000 years.
