    For me, the United Kingdom means a country of great history, literary traditions, and music. It means beautiful green countryside with lakes and mountains and picturesque villages centuries old. It also has a tradition of walking in nature and pub culture which one can enjoy delicious ales and fine company. Britain is expensive, but with good planning, you can try to keep your budget down.

    I've only seen London and some parts of the English countryside. I would love to come back and visit some of the other parts of the United Kingdom sometime in the future. London is still known as one of the biggiest foodie capitals of the world. Of ourse there is plenty of history here and lots of buildings to see for their beuty and historic significance. Eventhough it's not cheap it is possible to include on a Euro tour. Flights with EasyJet really help!

    Before this year, i hadn't really been interested in the UK, and boy was I missing out. The people are friendly, the pubs are cozy, the countryside is lovely, and the much-maligned food is delicious and comforting. Plus, in the UK, there's a beautiful co-existence of cutting-edge culture and historical preservation, so you don't have to give up your quaint buildings and traditional customs for avante-garde art and progressive politics.

    They speak English but everything still seems foreign. The difference between the internal countries, both in culture and landscape, gives you a chance for infinite experiences without leaving the island.

    You've asked a question that can generate thousands of answers. I suggest that you first decide your priorities: big cities, museums, countryside, restaurants, theatre, castles, and time of travel. To evaluate the numerous options, you might visit www.visitBritain.com//en/us. This is the official travel website of Great Britain. Here you will find destinations and maps, things to do, accommodations and transportation options. Also, google Frommer's London.

    I've been to the UK a few times and liked it, but didn't love it. The food was just horrible and one of the things I love most about traveling is the cuisine. It can never compare to the food in Turkey, Japan, Thailand and other cuisine-centric countries.

    But I enjoyed the shopping, though it's expensive. The buildings were nice, people were pretty cool but I felt it was a lot like being in the east coast of the US. Maybe I do need to go back and explore outside the city.

    The UK is a fun country to visit, and for the american tourist it has the added advantage of a common language. The different countries within the UK provide tourists with plenty of variety. Visit the great city of London, checkout the old town of Sarum and Stonehenge. Then you can move to the Scottish highlands or to Whales and experience a very different history and culture.

    Well I'm from the UK so I'm going to be a bit biased about this, but this country needs shouting about. London, Edinburgh, Manchester, everyone knows about those, but what about the real Britain. Beautiful national parks, spectacular coastlines, rugged mountains, lovely little market towns, weird local festivals. Head to the south west and go surfing on the Atlantic beaches. Meander through the villages of the Cotswolds. Climb a mountain in snowdonia in Wales. Cycle across the Peak District. Check out historical York. Climb a fell in the Lake District. Bag a Munro in the Highlands, or visit some deserted white sandy beaches on the west coast. Find local pubs, try real ale, eat a proper pie from Wigan, try a pork pie from Melton Mowbry, eat a Cornish Pasty. Try a Manchester Egg, eat haggis, bury black pudding, cockles and jellied eels. We might be a tiny island packed with over 60million people, but only a third of the country is urban. The rest is green and pleasant land.

    Brighton and Hove.
    Brighton is fun. Lots of places to visit.
    The lanes are very interesting.
    Hove is a little more peaceful. Nice to have the best of both.

    We hired a motorhome and toured around southern and central England. What beautiful countryside. We were also lucky to be there when it snowed in London for the first time in 18 years. Having never seen snow before, this was a glorious experience. I would recommend this sort of holiday to anyone who wants to go at their on pace and stop just for the sake of stopping. The west coast of Cornwall was spectacular and we even got to Tintagel to see King Arthur's castle. Bristol was very friendly and we enjoyed drinking at the Prince of Wales Free House in St Paul. Steve even managed to test their public health system in Worksop and was very impressed.

    Love the history, tradition and culture of the country. London is one of our favorite cities (rivaled only by New York and Rome)

    Lake District is a must see. Stayed at the Holebeck Ghyll. Great little cottage with excellent service.

    As an American, I view the UK as my past. As a child, I viewed it as a land of faeries and kings, full of mystery. And as a visitor, I see her natural and cultural beauty and rejoice.

    It was exciting to experience Jubilee last I was there. Though the weather was wanting everything else from the shopping and the people were nice. It's refreshing to hear english again, even if it's old english.
    ;D

Description

What is the United Kingdom? For some, the UK is a blueblood manor home in the Cotswolds. For others, it's the international melting pot of hip-and-happening Manchester. For visitors, it's almost anything you like. Want to visit isolated castle ruins and hike through a moon-like landscape? Head to northern Scotland. Want to get literary? Stop in London's City Center to catch a performance at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre or visit Jane Austen's favorite sites in Bath. How about a trip back in time? Witness the grandeur of York's medieval cathedral, Edinburgh's perfectly preserved 1000-year-old castle, or go way, way back, to pre-historic monoliths at Stonehenge. But don't forget the natural beauty. Northern Ireland's Causeway Coast offers a rugged and scenic landscape, interspersed with darling villages. Hikers flock to Wales' Snowdonia National Park or England's Pennines to take part in one of the UK's favorite pastimes. No trip to the UK is complete without spending a few nights in a traditional pub drinking with the locals and trying out the local dishes which, these days, often means curry or noodles. ... read more
