For such a small island, the UK is home to an amazing array of sights, cultures, landscapes and cuisines, from the lakes and mountains of the Lake District to the moors of Yorkshire and the towering skyscrapers of London, so why not book cheap flights to the United Kingdom with Globehunters today?
London is by far the most visited place in the UK, with its iconic landmarks such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and its double-decker buses, but there’s so much more to the UK than just London.
You could take a trip to see the mysterious Stonehenge in Wiltshire, see the birthplace of William Shakespeare in Stratford-upon-Avon, or learn the story of the Beatles up in Liverpool.
Up in Scotland you can explore the Lochs and mountains of the highlands, see historic Edinburgh and, of course, try some haggis.
Northern Ireland is home to the Giant’s Causeway, while Wales is known for its rugged coastline and the Snowdonia National Park.
We’re only just scratching the surface here; every corner of the UK has history and culture to uncover, and the best thing is that nowhere is too far away because it’s such a compact country!
