Experience the Best of British



UK holidaysThe credit crunch, combined with the new era of green living has meant that holidaying at home has become much more popular, and with such wonderful, cheap holidays in the UK to enjoy, it is little wonder. Whether you are looking into a week at the seaside, a cultural holiday in the UK or an activity break, the UK has it all. The many charming UK holiday cottages available for rent means that every far flung corner is yours to call home for a week or two each year.

For such a small country, the diversity is incredible. There are so many tourist attractions in the United Kingdom that it would be impossible to mention them all here. The famous sights of London are the largest attraction for foreign visitors, but there are so many more important cultural, natural and historical marvels to explore it seems a shame that London receives most of the attention when it comes to tourist attractions in the UK. The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Giant's Causeway in County Antrim, the astonishing Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and the 2008 European City of Culture, Liverpool are all certainly of note for anyone thinking of taking UK holidays this year, and represent just the very tip of the iceberg when it comes to tourist attractions in the United Kingdom.
