The United Kingdom is one of the best travel destinations in the world. There is something for everybody here and you need a lot of time to fully explore it. Given below are the top things to do while in the United Kingdom:
The capital city of London is one of the greatest cities in the world. The city is steeped in history and culture. Walk down the streets of London to marvel at the wonderful architecture. Walk along the River Thames, walk on the Tower Bridge, visit the Buckingham Palace to view the Changing of the Guards and also visit the various Museums in the city. The best part about museums is that you need not pay anything as entry is free, though if you wish to donate some money you can. Food is great in the country and you should enjoy all the cuisines that the country has to offer (Do not forget to try Chicken Tikka Masala, an Indian dish which the British call their own). In London there are many places where you can indulge in shopping to your heart’s content. There are many streets like Bond Steet, Savile Row etc., where you can get great clothing. You should also visit Harrods, the famous department store. If you are from a non-EU nation visiting the country you can get refund on VAT. VAT is value added tax which is added to all the things that you buy. It is 20% of your bill and you can get it back by downloading a mobile app known as Airvat. You need to follow the instructions on the app and you will get the tax refund. Traveling is costly but you can get an oyster card and use the Tube for most of your travel.
When in the United Kingdom you should visit Scotland which is famous for the beauty that nature has bestowed upon her. There are many glens and lochs and even monsters that are largely mythical in nature. If you love to visit old castles then you should visit Scotland.
Visit Wales if you love the outdoors and love adventure and outdoor activities. The best place to visit is the Snowdonia National Park where you get the longest zip line in the whole of Europe and it is also considered to be the fastest in the world. There are a lot of nature trails where you can trek and enjoy nature. Mount Snowdon provides great views. Gower is also another place which everyone should visit. It is a great place to enjoy the peace and quiet.
This is a part of Northern England and is very famous among the lovers of the outdoors. It is a great place to sail on the lakes, if you like to bicycle then you have a lot of biking trails and for hikers it is the perfect place. The Lake District gets really crowded during the summer but it is still worth a visit.
