Arguably, it is the most iconic example of a European nation, encapsulating what the continent is all about while at the same time remaining a bit more accessible than other regions in terms of general hospitableness and language.  Here are 8 amazing reasons why you should visit the UK.

London

London-01Without a doubt, whenever someone wants to visit the British Isles they tend to want to run through London, currently nicknamed the financial center of the world, even if it’s only just to check it out for a day or so.  This majestic city has everything and anything you could want and more and remains perhaps the most iconic representation of what the UK is all about.  As it is often said, there’s always something new going on in London too, which is obviously ideal for travelers and tourists.  Many might want to drop by Buckingham Palace or gawk at Big Ben, but every street and corner of the city is filled with stuff to do and see.

Quaint English towns and villages in the countryside

Scotland

Northern Ireland

The Food

  1. Hi there! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog like yours take a
    massive amount work? I am brand new to running a blog but I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience
    and views online. Please let me know if you
    have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
    Thankyou!

  2. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Genuinely rarely should i encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail about the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is an element that insufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am delighted we came across this during my look for something with this.

  3. 280268 822199Hello there! I could have sworn Ive been to this weblog before but right after reading through some of the post I realized it is new to me. Anyhow, Im certainly happy I discovered it and Ill be book-marking and checking back often! 906034

  4. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for
    your site. You have some really good articles and I believe I would be a good
    asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely
    love to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please shoot me an email if interested. Kudos!

  5. Hi there mates, its wonderful paragraph regarding tutoringand entirely
    defined, keep it up all the time.

  6. Superb website you have here but I was wanting to know if
    you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics discussed in this
    article? I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get suggestions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Thanks!

  7. wonderful publish, very informative. I wonder why the opposite
    specialists of this sector don’t understand this. You must continue your writing.
    I’m confident, you have a huge readers’ base already!

  8. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally
    educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I stumbled across this
    during my search for something relating to this.

  9. Link exchange is nothing else except it is just placing the other person’s
    web site link on your page at appropriate place and other person will
    also do same for you.
