While some countries spend a fortune coming up with fancy marketing campaigns, It is right there in the name.

Small it may be, small is not its diverse array of landscapes! Take in the graceful architecture of Canterbury Cathedral, explore the extraordinary giants causeway, hike to the Top of Snowdonia in Wales, stand on the cliffs edge peering into the distance at Lands end or admire the picture-postcard landscape of the Cotswolds, Britain’s astounding variety is a major reason to visit.
The cities tempt with top-class shops and restaurants, and some of the world’s finest museums, while cutting-edge clubs and world-famous theatres provide endless nights to remember. Next day, you’re deep in the countryside, high in the hills or enjoying a classic seaside resort. In Britain, there really is something for everyone! We know, we live here!
