A modern country with pretty landscapes and vibrant cities
The UK, or more exactly the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, is a rich and fascinating state composed of 4 countries, each of them with its own specificities and customs. London, the capital, is a global city with a worldwide financial and cultural influence. Without surprise, this is also the most visited city in the world.
Either in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, visitors enjoy gorgeous countryside, stunning wild coastlines, vibrant cities and unique festivals.
Britain’s heritage is endless. It is full of historic monuments, royal palaces and world's top museums. It is worth visiting places such as Stratford-upon-Avon, William Shakespeare’s birthplace, Bath, the first spa retreat in the world, or else Oxford, the home of the oldest university in the English-speaking world and Harry Potter shooting place.
Natural gems are found everywhere. While The Highlands in Scotland are one of the rare untouched areas in Europe, Wales is gifted with lofty mountain ranges, immaculate beaches and ancient woodland and Northern Ireland has The Giant's Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage site of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Cities such as Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburg, Birmingham and Cardiff, not to mention London, are great for urban weekends in Europe. The history, the ethnical diversity, the economic power and the cultural dynamism of the UK attract people from all over the world the whole year round.
To experience the variety and the countless delights of Britain, visitors must come again and again!
