Traverse the emerald green pastures of the English countryside, have a go at trout fishing in the spectacular Scottish highlands, or hop along the interlocking volcanic columns of Northern Ireland’s Giant’s Causeway, the United Kingdom is a haven for those who take their tea with a side of adventure. Land of the Queen herself, the UK offers visitors a plethora of stately attractions. From London’s surging cosmopolitan culture and imperial history, to kilts and bagpipes in Edinburgh Castle, to antiquated Georgian architecture and the purest natural springs in Bath, any visit to the United Kingdom will transform into a voyage of adventure, bygone nobility and quaint natural charm.
