If London remains unquestionably "the place to be", getting off the beaten track is quintessentially British. And Britain has lots of treasures in store: enjoy delightful cottages with gardens brimming with flowers in Kent or the Sussex, explore the rehabilitated docks of Liverpool, discover the medieval colleges of Oxford or the ruins of Stonehenge…. Back to the capital city of London, we should take the time to live like those who live here: the banks of the Thames in Soho via Nothing Hill or Covent Garden, we can walk around Westminster and its Palace next to the must see London Bridge… A change of scenery is guaranteed!
Let's discover the United Kingdom
The United Kingdom encompasses four countries and as many different trips to plan. This state is not only defined by England, as it is often referred to, but by a multitude of landscapes and cultures. You will appreciate the osmosis between the British cities, the mild but not very sunny climate, and the green plains of the country.
In the city, the atmosphere in the pubs is legendary, having tea in one of the posh lounges is an opportunity to get into the British spirit, shopping during the sales gives you extra reasons to come, and the cultural life is immensely rich.
On the other hand, the local landscapes are very typical with coasts on all sides and of all types (cliffs, beaches, castles, lighthouses, etc...) and in the center of the plains dotted with lakes, where a legend is to be discovered in each place.
. It is the opportunity to go further than the Big Ben of London, and finally visit Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland.

Frequently asked questions about United Kingdom
When to go in United Kingdom ?
There’s always something to see and do in the United Kingdom, whatever the infamous weather holds in store. Winters are generally quieter – the perfect time for cosy pubs, open fires and Christmas markets. Summers are often warm and sunny with lively festivals and sports events to enjoy. While in between the countryside is at its most beautiful.
How is the weather in United Kingdom ?
The climate is temperate oceanic, therefore humid, with fairly homogeneous temperatures throughout the year. Winters are mild: temperatures rarely go below zero, and summers are cool, (20°C on average), but some days can be relatively hot. Of course, it rains often, and fog is common in the country, but note that the flatter east and south are generally less wet. The weather is often unstable: it is not uncommon to see several seasons in the same day, in the Highlands, for example!
What is the currency in United Kingdom ?
Britain’s national currency is the pound sterling (symbol: £), which is sub-divided into 100 pence (symbol: p). You get notes in denominations of £50, £20, £10 and £5, and coins in £2, £1, 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p. Scotland and Northern Ireland issue their own pound sterling notes that represent the same value as an English note - you can use English and Scottish (although the Scottish £1 note is not accepted outside Scotland) money anywhere in the UK, but Northern Irish cash can only be used in Northern Ireland.
