Great Britain
The Essential
From the historic cities of England and the delightfully nostalgic seaside resorts of Wales to the grandiose countryside of Scotland, a holiday in Great Britain brings the promise of amazing diversity.
The island is a magnet for tourists from all over the world, starting with its capital, London, one of Europe's foremost cultural scenes, and yet steeped in an anachronistic aristocratic allure.
Once outside the capital, you will become acquainted with the country's fascinating history as you visit castles and forts, set in exquisite grounds dotted with lakes, like Chatsworth, often called a "second Versailles" and Blenheim, a Baroque jewel, or during a leisurely stroll in the elegant university cities of Oxford and Cambridge.
Those who would prefer a more active holiday could head for the huge cliffs of the impressive Pembrokeshire coast.
However, if you want a real breath of bracing fresh air, go even further north to Scotland's Highlands, where glaciers have carved stunning fjords and lochs along the coast.
Whichever region you are in, make sure you stop at tea time - an ideal occasion to sample the quintessence of Britain!
