48 hours in Britain

Britain is overflowing with amazing sights to see and things to do. And we’re not just talking about all the stuff going on within the mega-metropolis that is London.

Venture beyond the obvious and unlock the energy, quirks, colours and culture of Britain’s cities in a way you’ve never felt before. Irresistible nightlife, inspiring live music, tasty street food and jaw-dropping natural wonders await you in London and beyond. Bohemian Brighton, cultural Liverpool, arty Bristol and entertaining Manchester are each less than a two-and-a-half-hour train ride from the capital.

And it’s all too easy to get around. The extensive train networks will transport you just about anywhere you want to go quickly (for instance, you’re never more than two hours away from a beach!) while busy international airports are scattered all over the country. Basically, you’ve got no excuse for missing out on Britain’s incredibly diverse offerings.

The entire United Kingdom is up for grabs.
