Great Britain


The Essential
England is an amazing cocktail of avant-garde fashion and culture, time-honoured traditions, stunning gardens and ancestral castles.
If you arrive by plane or train, its sprawling capital, London, may well keep you longer than you had intended, thanks to its wealth of museums, shops and theatres.
If you arrive on the south coast by the sea, you will be greeted by the spectacular white cliffs of Dover, which dominate the Channel and can even been seen from the coast of France. The unspoiled countryside of Cornwall is equally breathtaking, made up of rocky headlands and windswept heaths, as are the bewitching landscapes of the Lake District.
A trip to England will inevitably include a tour of one of the two most illustrious university cities of the world, Oxford or Cambridge. You shouldn't miss the country's exceptional cathedrals of Canterbury and York. Nor should you forfeit the chance to admire England's famous gardens, such as that of Baroque jewel, Blenheim palace, or in the "Garden of England", Kent.
After so much sightseeing, you will need a break, providing you can manage to decide between a cuppa in a cosy tearoom or a beer in a lively pub...
