Verenigd Koninkrijk

England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland make up a kingdom in which modern cities like London, contrast with megalithic monuments, castles, forests and legendary universities. The monarchy has a huge media impact worldwide.

Trend-setting traditions

In England, you have to visit London, the cosmopolitan capital and one of the most fashionable cities in the world. Totally different to the more leisurely and classic atmosphere in the university cities of Oxford and Cambridge. Stonehenge is the most famous megalithic monument in the world, and feeling the energy it gives off is an experience you must not miss if you plan to visit England. Scotland has spectacular green landscapes, castles, Glasgow, Loch Ness and whiskey distilleries! Hikers should not miss the 1,400-kilometre route that links all the coastal paths in Wales. If you plan to visit the United Kingdom, don’t forget to include Northern Ireland and the Gobbins cliff walk in your travel plan.
