Things to do in the UK

The United Kingdom (UK) consists of four countries, England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, located in the north west of Europe.

If you're looking for a city break there are a number of options but London is easily the most visited city within the UK, although that does not necessarily mean it is the most tourist friendly! England's capital boasts cultural attractions, such as the National Gallery and the Natural History Museum, sporting venues and excellent nightlife but the likes of Edinburgh, Manchester, Cardiff, Belfast, Leeds, Liverpool and Glasgow should not be ignored. Each has its own individual attractions and selling points and can offer a different experience of UK life.

City breaks don't have to be all about the hustle and bustle of modern life and some of the most popular cities for tourists offer a real glimpse into Britain's past. Edinburgh, Scotland's capital, has a castle that dominates the skyline and becomes a festival of comedy and the arts throughout the month of August, while places such as Canterbury, York and Chester are smaller cities that have a town-like feel, with all the amenities a visitor could need and plenty of historic attractions too.

Renting a lodge is often the best way to holiday in the British countryside due to the fairly unpredictable weather, particularly in the spring and the autumn. In most popular tourist destinations there will be attractions suitable for all weather conditions but having a warm, sheltered base to return to is well worth the investment!
