The United Kingdom is a sovereign country in Western Europe. It includes the island of Great Britain and the north eastern part of Ireland. The capital London is probably the most famous destination of Great Britain. Places of interest like London Eye, Globe Theatre, London Dungeon or Buckingham Palace attract millions of visitors every year. But not is only London worth visiting, also South West England with its famous coasts Cornwall and Devon are popular destinations.

While thinking about travelling to Great Britain you should not forget to visit Scotland. Especially for outdoor fanatics Scotland is the place to be. Wild coasts, rolling hills and high mountains are perfect for hiking and mountainbiking. You can also live through Scotland’s culture and history by visiting one of the beautiful castles and the capital Edinburgh.

Similar to Scotland is Wales. Steep rugged coasts and soft mountains are the perfect environment for outdoor activities. Small towns invite you to stroll.

Not on the British Island but also Northern Ireand is part of the country. Northern Ireland is especially famous for having built the biggest passenger liner “Titanic”. By visiting the capital Belfast you can learn everything about the “Titanic”- from building to sinking. The long coast of Northern Ireland is the perfect place for water activities and cozy walks.
