In the midst of the political upheaval currently dominating the media and sweeping over the UK, I wanted to try to remind the world that the UK is still a wondrous country full of culture, beauty and history.
Brexit is now a reality. That is a fact, and the ‘remain’ uk voters along with the whole world will hopefully accept it in the near future. Although the UK is swimming in unchartered waters don’t let this put you off this beautiful collection of countries
The UK is still the UK, it is still home to some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, including the gorgeous Scottish Highlands, inspirational Lake District, rugged Cornish coastline and tranquil Welsh countryside.
It is still home to an array of natural wild inhabitants, nestled in woodlands, parks and even some urban areas. Taking a minute to explore nature within the UK could leave you surprised.
It is still home to some of the world’s most iconic landmarks, including palaces, roman ruins, churches, world class museums and galleries. Although many are housed within London locations such as Houses of Parliament, the Tower of London, Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral, and the Tate, look further afield and you’ll find Hadrian’s Wall, Stonehenge, Roman Baths and even the legendary Camelot.
It is still the birthplace of Shakespeare, Churchill, Darwin, Newton, the British Royal family and an incredible amount of literary giants, such a Tolkien, Austin, Chaucer, Dickens, Wordsworth JK Rowling, Beatrix Potter and Chaucer. As such it is the home of Sherlock Holmes, Robin Hood, Peter Pan, King Arthur and even Harry Potter.
It is still the home of the most significant musical genres and bands of all time, the Beatles, Eric Clapton, the Sex Pistols, Led Zeppelin, Queen, the Rolling Stones and more recently the phenomenon that is Adele.
It is still home to some amazing coastal scenery including white chalk cliffs, pebble beaches, hidden coves and pure golden sand.
It is still the home of very proud diverse friendly people, who despite recent events, welcome tourism to their country.
It is still home to arguably the most iconic city in the world, London. With its enchanting blend of historical significance, world-renowned entertainment, culinary diversity and iconic locations. You could spend a month exploring everything London has to offer and still feel that you missed certain spots. London is nothing short of a playground for memory making.
That’s not to mention the UK is still home to an array of other vibrant cities such as York, Manchester, Edinburgh and Cardiff all offering contrasting unique experiences.
Many also forget that the UK is still home of endless alternatives to the big cities mentioned, with ‘lesser’ travelled jewels such as St Ives, Whitstable, Tenby, Aberystwyth, Grasmere, Portree all presenting incredible visual and sensual delights.
Having travelled and experienced 59 magnificent countries around the world, we can attest that the UK is a very special collection of countries. It encompasses experiences to satisfy every taste, be a voyage of discovery, a family vacation, a special occasion or even a quick city break. The UK doesn’t only offer a simple holiday, it offers you the opportunity to make your own memories and stories like no other.
