It’s time to Visit Britain!
No matter what you’re looking to get out of your visit to the UK – history, cuisine, culture – London quite literally has it all. You’ll find everything from thousand-year-old heritage sites to cultural landmarks like Buckingham Palace, St Paul’s Cathedral and Tower Bridge. These iconic locations are the backbone of any first-time traveler’s visit to the UK. Don’t miss out!
A world-renowned center of learning and architecture, Cambridge’s iconic canals and cobbled streets are made all the more vibrant by its lively student population. Don’t miss out on the fascinating Fitzwilliam Museum – one of the UK’s most fascinating collections of art and artifacts. Spend your morning there before heading off to explore some of Cambridge University’s key attractions, including King’s College, Trinity College and the Botanic Gardens. You’ll have the chance to walk the same grounds as esteemed alumni such as Steven Hawking, Charles Darwin, Alan Turing, and Isaac Newton.
Be inspired by 2000 years of civilized history in one of the UK’s most unique and beautiful cities. Known mostly for its pristine Roman Baths – one of the most important archeological sites in Europe – Bath is also home to some of the UK’s splendid architecture, such as the Royal Crescent, Bath Abbey, and Pulteney Bridge. It’s one of a handful of British cities that retains its traditional quaintness – unsurprising, given that it was the long-time home of Jane Austen!
This quintessential walled city shelters cobbled streets and stunning timber-framed houses. Its star attraction, though, is undoubtedly Canterbury Cathedral and its surrounding precincts. The church has stood for almost one thousand years and has been a center of pilgrimage and religious interest throughout its long history. It’s definitely one of the city’s unmissable monuments, but don’t miss out on other fantastic attractions like the Canterbury Tales centre and Canterbury Castle.
From the Bodleian library to the Radcliffe Camera and Blenheim Palace, this historic town has some of the grandest and most fascinating architectural works in the country. Discover the long history of the oldest university in the English-speaking world and explore its breathtaking buildings. Christ Church College, Magdalen College and the Bridge of Sighs will provide some of the best photo opportunities on your trip.
From the ancient, windswept hillsides of Stonehenge to the magical stories of Salisbury Cathedral, this quaint English town carries a pervading sense of mystery and wonder. Visit the Cathedral and you’ll get to see one of only four remaining copies of the Magna Carta – one of the most important documents in human history. Other key attractions like the Salisbury Museum and Old Sarum will make your trip extra memorable.
