Holidays in the UK
For centuries, the British Isles have punched above their weight on the world stage. Although Britannia no longer rules the waves, the UK remains one of the most interesting places to visit for many travellers.
Today, the UK is a vibrant collage of native and immigrant cultures. It’s an elastic world with an epic history and a passion for progress; alive with tradition but also a centre for innovation.
From the Scottish wilderness to the cosmopolitan sensory assault that is London, holidays in the UK will transport you into a fascinating world of contradictions and eccentricities. Read more on London holidays here.
What do holidays in the UK have to offer
The UK may not be that big, but there really is so much to see. If you like being outdoors, there’s everything from surfing to rock-climbing. If you want history, the UK is overflowing with it. If you want culture, just immerse yourself in the UK’s cities.
The South-West of England, home to Glastonbury Festival, Cheddar cheese and the Cornish pasty, is dominated by its rugged coast and ancient history, while the UK's sprawling and multicultural capital London, with its world-class museums, shopping and food, is surrounded by the rolling hills of the affluent South-East.
The North of England where you’ll find some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. Beyond the lively former industrial centres of Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds, the Northumberland coast, the Peak District and the Lake District boast some of the UK’s most brooding and beautiful scenery. Find out more about England holidays.
It’s in the Scottish Highlands, however, where the real wilderness remains. Edinburgh, meanwhile, famous for its annual festival, is rich with history and is one of the UK’s most creative cities, whilst the larger Hebrides islands are popular with walkers and whiskey-lovers alike. Discover all that Scotland holidays have to offer.
The Welsh capital Cardiff is a city full of energy, whilst the jagged peaks of the Snowdonia mountain range punctuate North Wales. Across the Irish Sea, fashionable Belfast is a forward-looking city full of excitement, whilst Northern Ireland's countryside is just as mesmerising as the UK mainland.
