For a tiny island, Great Britain has made an enormous impact on the world. As Hugh Grant’s character said in the classic film Love Actually, “We may be a small country, but we’re a great one too. The country of Shakespeare, Churchill, the Beatles, Sean Connery, Harry Potter, David Beckham’s right foot. David Beckham’s left foot…”
A tour of Great Britain—the isle comprised of England, Scotland, and Wales—and its United Kingdom neighbor, Northern Ireland, allows you to experience this sovereign state’s full historical and cultural impact.
Gaze over the iconic capital city from the London Eye, watch the Changing of the Guard in front of Buckingham Palace, see the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London, and listen to the tolling of Big Ben before exploring galleries full of antiquities at the British Museum.
Get out of the city to the picturesque Yorkshire Dales and Lake District, or visit Shakespeare’s home in medieval Stratford-upon-Avon. Step back in time when you wander the monoliths of Stonehenge and follow the Roman ruins of Hadrian’s Wall.
Head north to Scotland to stare into the mysterious waters of Loch Ness, play a round of golf at the Old Course at St. Andrews, learn about shipbuilding in Glasgow, and explore the dramatic landscapes of the Highlands and Isle of Skye. If you visit in August, you can attend the famous Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo in front of Edinburgh Castle.
In Wales, you can visit Gothic Cardiff, discover Celtic culture, and admire spectacular Snowdonia National Park. Across the Straits of Moyle, discover Northern Ireland with a visit to Belfast, the walled city of Londonderry, and the legendary Giant’s Causeway in County Antrim.
