From the dramatic patchwork of rolling peaks and gleaming lochs that comprise Scotland’s Highlands, down to the network of neon lights and lanes that make up London’s buzzing Soho district, the UK has something to offer everyone. The capital is a popular jumping off point for those looking to explore England, with charming seaside settlements and quaint Tudor market towns all within easy reach.
Iconic landmarks can be discovered around every corner in The Old Smoke, with historical sites like the Tower of London (still standing tall almost 1,000 years after construction) punctuating the same varied cityscape as chic hotels and striking modern landmarks like The Shard. Vast stretches of green are interspersed throughout the urban jigsaw of the city, offering space to breathe no matter if you’re in the mood to stroll through the manicured splendor of Regent’s Park, or embark on a trek across the wilder landscape of Hampstead Heath.
Hop on a train heading out of the capital and atmospheric villages and historical towns the likes of Bath, Oxford, and Ascot are all a short ride away. Work up an appetite rambling through the surrounding countryside, winding your way through leafy lanes past Victorian villas before settling in at a country inn to warm your soul in before a roaring fire. Whether in the city, countryside, or at the seaside, there’s a real sense of history in the UK, and countless ways to enjoy it.
