From captivating cities to picture-postcard countryside and a history where myths and legends collide, there's nowhere quite like Britain.

Explore history you can touch as you wander the ornate halls of stately homes and trace the footsteps of clans and kings in Edinburgh. Find stories you’ll share, of ground-breaking creative works at the Liverpool Biennial or grand Old Masters in London’s National Gallery. Rediscover views you’ve missed as you roam landscapes immortalised in postcards, film and poetry for centuries, from the sparkling waters of the Lake District to Cornwall’s golden beaches. And taste traditions you’ll savor, like the scent of fish and chips and the sweet aroma of scones at afternoon tea. From places you’ve dreamt of to locals you’ll remember, Britain has all you need to escape the everyday.
