A green and pleasant land, the United Kingdom comprises England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Travel through these countries and travel through time, from the ancient megaliths of Stonehenge and Avebury, via Roman monuments such as Hadrian's Wall and the 1,000 year old Tower of London to the futuristic Eden Project in Cornwall.
The capital London is full of contemporary attractions and a burgeoning arts scene epitomised by the Tate Modern and mass of other galleries. The host city for the 2012 Olympics, regeneration and infrastructure development have made exploring this iconic city easier.
Other cities such as Bath, Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle revel in their heritage and contemporary culture whilst Edinburgh and Glasgow north of the border hold their own in terms of cultural attractions and vibrant nightlife.
Discover the outdoors in the Cotswolds, the Lake District or Yorkshire Dales. Walk the Pembrokeshire Coast, the Norfolk Coast or the cliffs and coves of the South West. Climb peaks in Snowdonia and bag munros in Scotland. Revel in the beaches of Cornwall and Northumberland or hop to the Channel Islands or Scotland's outlying island groups to see a more traditional side of life.
