What do you want out of your trip? The United Kingdom has it. Sure, the weather is not the most optimal during certain times of the year. All the same, the culture that overflows from some of its biggest cities, like London enables a traveler to trip to 100’s of countries in one. In its international nature, London provides food, religion, and traditional from everywhere.
London is not nearly all the UK has to offer though; the union that makes up these four nations is laced with natural beauty, stretched from lush green land to the deep blue sea. Many places in Scotland provide beautiful cliff overhands, jetting out into the sea, giving gorgeous panos.
There are small splices of existing Roman culture, along with ancient ruins that still remain mysterious.

Many of the villages live quaintly, giving a juxtapose to the Kingdom’s biggest cities.Both beautiful in their own way.
Certainly feel free to have your fair share of ‘pints’ while visiting, but do not spend all of your time in the pubs as the United Kingdom has much more to offer.
The UK, particularly London, is saturated with experiences that will make you feel like a queen or king. Some of the most monumental experiences are seen merely whilst walking the streets; breathe in the culture through architecture–stone buildings and high points. You should definitely visit Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace.

Additionally, watch the Changing of the Guard and indulge in a traditional English afternoon tea at a luxury hotel.

In the midst of nearly nowhere, there are huge stone formations; built back in 3000 BC, Stonehenge stands as an incredible reminder of the human mind and infinite manpower. Most stones were hauled from miles and miles; some of them were discovered in Wales, another country in the UK. This sacred space was used for ceremonies and worship.
Said to have been created by ancient lava flow, this Scottish sea cave actually sits on the uninhabited island of Staffa.
