Discover a sporting nation

Hear the roar of the crowd at a football match, play golf at St Andrews or discover tennis and tradition at Wimbledon… Football, cricket, rugby, golf: name a sport and there’s a good chance we Brits invented it, wrote the rules or are just plain obsessed by it.


Sport is GREAT

Sports tours and museums

Football, cricket, rugby, golf: name a sport and there’s a good chance we Brits invented it, wrote the rules or are just plain obsessed by it. And if playing or watching your favourites isn’t enough, why not check out one of our top sporting museums or tours?

Wimbledon

Every year, around 500,000 tennis fans flock to Wimbledon to see the best players in the world battle it out for the title of Wimbledon Champion in an unbeatable atmosphere. See why here.

Society sporting events

White shirts, smart suits, summer dresses and spectacular hats, most likely a tailcoat or two and plenty of glamorous gowns. The Britain that most people think only exists in films is alive and well, at these annual events. Keep your eyes peeled for royalty: the Queen herself attends Royal Ascot annually, while Prince William and Harry are well known for their love of polo.
