Brits might talk about it a lot but don't get the wrong impression, the weather
is only one unique aspect of this green and pleasant land. There are even areas
that really aren't that green at all. Take Torquay
and the English Riviera for instance. Blue seas, palm trees, pastel coloured hotel
facades and the marvellous British institution of crazy-golf. Take London,
cutting-edge concrete metropolis with some of the finest shopping stores, restaurants,
galleries, museums and nightclubs in the world. And at the other end of the extreme
is Scotland - a mighty ice-age labyrinthe of valleys and forest wildernesses,
peppered with lochs and all manner of myths and legends. And yes it is, for want
of a better word, quite green. But think beyond that...the UK is so much more..

If you are
looking for an active vacation in the UK look no further than Cornwall for surfing,
the Lake District and the Peak District for hiking and fell-running and Scotland
for mountaineering. At Inverness
visit the world-famous monster capital of Loch Ness before pulling on your hiking
boots and heading up Ben Nevis.
the modern-world UK has always been at the forefront of the music, art and literary
window. From Shakespeare and Stratford-Upon-Avon, Thomas Hardy and Dorset, the
Brontes and the North Yorkshire Moors the British countryside has inspired some
of the finest pieces of work in the modern language. And for art lovers there's
the Tate Modern, the The Saatchi Galllery and the national Portrait Gallery in
London, the Tate in Liverpool,
the National Gallery of Scotland in Edinburgh,
And for music lovers - why not try out the classic Beatles Museum in
the magnificent Sheffield Arena
or for those with less popular tastes the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden,
the Kings Theatre in Glasgow or
even the National Centre for Early Music in York.
Food & Wine
Okay, the Brits may struggle to match the culinary
flair and pezaz of continental masters of cuisine like the Italian, the French,
the Chinese and the Indian saucepan handlers, but there's no doubting that the
great Yorkshire Pudding and the mighty bag of fish and chips have their place
in many a native's heart. What Britain is good at, however, is bringing the very
best of International cuisine together in one big melting-pot of tastes-fantastic.
From Mexican, Greek, Italian, French, Cantonese, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and
African, the UK has a range of eclectic tastes to rival even New York. Bradford
is reputed to have some of the finest Indian Curry houses in the world!
We're justified and we're ancient. Not just the words to
a song, but a soundtrack to a way of life in Britain, retaining as it does all
the various complex layers of history and modernity. Most people will know of
the Stonehenges, the Dover Castles and the Salisbury Plains of this country but
what about the folk-law history of Robin Hood's Nottingham,
the industrial epicentre of North in places like Manchester
and Newcastle, King Arthur's
Tintagel in Cornwall, the Elizebethan war defences of Pendennis Castle in Falmouth
or the staggeringly realistic Viking settlements as recreated in York's 'Yorvik
Okay, basking in the balmy
sunshine of Torquay, Newquay and Bournemouth in July might not be everyone's idea
of a holiday. And for those mad enough, the UK can offer a range of alternative
holidays to suit all manner of crazy tastes. The sweat and grime of your working
day not enough for you? Try out a coast to coast walking holiday. Fancy something
a little peculiar? What about The Windmill Experience; a residential holiday with
workshops located on the Norfolk coast. Or the The Earth Spirit Centre in Glastonbury,
where you can explore King Arthur's Britain through a series of formally arranged
workshops with a spiritual dimension?
When you book a Newquay Hotel or guest house, please check
that breakfast is included in the price of your stay, as each
