What You Need to Know Before You Go

The United Kingdom is packed with history, character and undeniable beauty. Made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, there’s a diverse range of eye-catching scenery and unique cultures. The birthplace of Shakespeare, The Beatles, the infamous Scottish kilt, fish and chips, the British Royals and much more – the UK has had global influence as a centre of culture, politics and history for centuries.

From the non-stop pace of glitzy London to the quaint country lanes of the Welsh countryside, the stunning mountains and lochs of the Scottish Highlands to the eccentric streets of Belfast – the UK has a unique and popular charm. Home to 30 UNESCO World Heritage sites, 15 gorgeous national parks, rugged coastlines and eclectic cityscapes, the UK packs a huge punch for such a small country.
