Plan an amazing trip to the United Kingdom
Best known for London, its dynamic and cosmopolitan capital, and its green and rolling hills and valleys, the United Kingdom is a country of prestigious places and varied landscapes to discover.
Numerous national parks dot the country, such as Exmoor with its cliffs, waterfalls and streams which flow into the sea; Dartmoor with its landscape of moors and standing stones that plunge you into the heart of Celtic legends; the Seven Sisters in Sussex - magnificent white chalk cliffs and the Cheddar Gorge, a wonderful place for walking and hiking.
The UK is populated with monasteries, castles, picturesque villages and lively towns, architectural treasures which are witness to its rich past. Cornwall, the most touristic area of the UK, benefits from a favourable climate and enjoys a magnificent landscape of moors, beaches, cliffs and picturesque fishing villages such as Polperro, in its green and pleasant setting. In Sussex, the village of Rye has incredible charm, with its half-timbered houses and the admirably well preserved Castle Combe.
London’s pubs, shops, attractions, and monuments such as the Tower of London (a UNESCO world heritage site), Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the British Museum need no introduction. The surrounding area is also full of unmissable sights such as Windsor Castle and the majestic Canterbury Cathedral.
Beyond the capital, other towns such as Oxford and Cambridge, ancient history-laden university towns, Manchester and Liverpool have their own assets. Brighton, a charming seaside town and Stonehenge, the prehistoric UNESCO world heritage site, are among the many destinations to discover in this endearing country.
