United Kingdom travel guide

4.3
Specialty Museums · Nightlife · Castles
Home to an impressive 25 World Heritage sites, the United Kingdom, which includes England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, has hundreds of museums to explore, thousands of parks and gardens to stroll through, and tens of thousands of communities to discover. From Land’s End in the south to John O’Groats in the north, the country is packed with tourist attractions that can fill a range of itineraries. With nearly 30 million tourists visiting every year, the UK is ranked among the top ten holiday destinations in the world. Known for its royalty, this country also represents a diverse patchwork of native and immigrant cultures. Although Britannia no longer rules the waves, it possesses a captivating history and a dynamic modern culture, both of which remain hugely influential on the rest of the world.

Northumberland travel guide

4.3
Castles · History Museums · Architectural Buildings
Famous for its unspoiled natural beauty, Northumberland is considered one of the most picturesque areas of countryside in the entire UK. The region is best explored by car, on the county's well-maintained and very quiet roads. Visitors to the area often report driving distances of over 100 km (70 mi) and meeting only a dozen other cars. In a country so modernized and populous, it's hard to imagine such an undiscovered area of wilderness and tranquility. As you drive over the rugged landscape, only a few houses and some secluded villages dot the horizon. With a mere hour separating it from the Scottish capital, it has a distinctly Scottish feel.

Cambridgeshire travel guide

4.4
Sacred & Religious Sites · Historic Sites · Architectural Buildings
More than just a picturesque setting for ancient colleges, Cambridgeshire contains the country’s most fertile farmland and a scenic countryside intersected by canals and dotted with windmills. Though the region’s chief attraction remains the splendid architecture of the historic university city of Cambridge, visitors should not fall into the trap of assuming that seeing old buildings equals seeing all of modern Cambridgeshire. Extend your itinerary beyond the walls of the ancient city and you'll find a region of small towns and friendly little villages, known for a particularly fine range of country pubs that serve an impressive variety of local ales and beers.
