Holidays in the UK: what’s on offer

What are the most recommended holidays in the UK?

Holidays in the UK offer so much to visitors. One of the greatest aspects of Britain as a holiday location is its relative compactness. The distance from one end to the other (John O’ Groats in the far north of Scotland to Land’s End in the south-west of England) is a mere 1,407 kilometres.

The bulk of the country is well-served by road and rail networks, with regular ferry crossings to Northern Ireland (the northern part of the island of Ireland that is part of the UK), as well as the Scottish Western Isles, Orkneys and Shetlands, and the Isles of Man and Wight.

If you’re looking to explore the UK’s beautiful scenery during your holidays in the UK, you could book into a self-catering cottage in the Scottish Highlands, via Cottages 4 You (www.cottages4you.co.uk). A typical week-long stay in Inverness, capital of the Highlands, for up to 8 people, will cost £997.

You can also check out caravan holidays in the UK.

What are the best city breaks for holidays in Britain?

The UK has scores of big cities. These are absolutely crammed with places of interest, reflecting the many cultures that have left their impact over the centuries: Romans, Vikings, Anglo-Saxons. Many historic sites are in excellent condition.

London is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. A major financial and retail centre, it is also an artistic hub. London Breaks (www.londonbreaks.com) offer hotel deals (as little as £5 per room) when you purchase theatre tickets.
