Welcome to the United Kingdom

Classical England is renowned for its palaces, castles, manor houses, white cliffs and rocky coastlines.  Lush green countryside and parks go hand-in-hand with flower-decked villages and traditional pubs. Modern England however takes you by surprise with its creative fashion, culinary diversity, adventure sports and pulsating nightlife. 

 

Visitors are lured to the wildly romantic north of Great Britain by kilts, Nessie the Loch Ness monster, malt whiskey, bagpipes, mountains and golf! Scotland offers some spectacular views of mountain tops, lakes and cliffs. The Atlantic weather front ensures that the light changes constantly and the dramatic and sparsely populated Highlands are best explored on foot.
