Welcome to the United Kingdom! A small island nation, with a long, rich history, this is the country that has brought the world Shakespeare and the Beatles, Harry Potter and David Beckham. A former colonial heavyweight with an empire that stretched from Australia to India to Kenya, it is now a multi-cultural nation, welcoming people from across the globe to its shores.
Visit this proud nation and you’ll discover just how varied it is. Spend days walking through the buzzing cosmopolitan capital of London, cycling round student-filled university towns, winding through sleepy country villages and wandering the waterfront of harbour-side cities. Explore the country’s heritage through towering cathedrals and sprawling castles, breathe in the fresh air of national parks and be brought into the 21st century with modern architectural marvels.
