Travelling To The British Isles On Your Next Vacation? Here’s Some Great Tips

Travelling To The British Isles On Your Next Vacation? Here's Some Great Tips
If you are coming over to Britain for your next holiday, I have to say you’re in for a real treat. One of the first things I did when I moved here, and something I continue doing is exploring the entire country. I’d advise you to do the same, but as you probably won’t have the time to do everything, I’ve compiled a list of my favourite things to do in Britain. There are so many dazzling sights to see and exciting activities to take part in that you can pick the ones that take your fancy!

England’s Capital

I’m sure if you’re coming to Great Britain, you’re probably starting your holiday in London. There is no better place to begin your trip and I’m sure you will return before your vacation is over. If you are a shopper, you might spend a whole day on Oxford Street filling your bags with some of the greatest brands in the world. A lot of celebs tend to go there so who knows what famous faces you might catch a glimpse of.

If you have kids, there are quite a few activities you should take part in before you leave the city. For instance, there is the Shrek experience, which takes ticket holders through some of the greatest scenes from the film and ends with a 4D movie. Then take a journey on the Hogwarts Express through Warner Bro’s UK Studio lot to see the amazing world behind Harry Potter. Who knows you might get a glimpse of the new film.

Up North

Once you’ve exhausted the many sites London has to offer it’s time to head North. This is the only place in the UK where you can experience Pleasure Flights Ltd. This company offers guided helicopter flights above Northern England’s most famous landmarks. They even offer special family packages that are sure to enthrall the kids. You can take a trip across the enchanting and mystical lake districts before you go camping there. If you’re planning on camping in Northern England, the best way is to go caravaning. Hire a caravan and stay at some of the best spots in the UK. Then you can explore the local area at your own pace and make friends with other families along the way. Finally, finish off your time in the North of England by taking a trip to Blackpool. This is a world of fun for the whole family, from the Pleasure Beach amusement park to the Las Vegas style night shows.

Into The Heart Of Scotland

I suggest you finish your trip to Britain by visiting Scotland. Again, for the shoppers both Edinburgh and Glasgow are certainly worth a visit with lots of stores to choose from. But, the more adventurous travellers should head deep into the highlands. There, you can see what Scotland was like in ancient times and visit Loch Ness. You might even catch a glimpse of the legendary mythical beast. There is nothing quite like the beauty of the Scottish moors so be sure to spend a day or two camping here if the weather is right.

I’ve only named my favourite sites and experiences in Britain; there are many more. So come over and explore the great British isles yourself. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

  • Blackpool during the Illuminations is so much fun. I haven't been for years though. My favourite places would be Liverpool for it's historic sites such as the cathedrals and the docks. The Gower Peninsula in South Wales for the beaches and sunsets and Belfast with a short day trip to Giants Causeway.

    • I must go to Blackpool during the Illuminations! I've only popped into Liverpool for a quick day trip, but I am eager to see it properly. Any recommendations? I love The Gower Peninsula as well, it's absolutely gorgeous! The beaches are amazing. Too bad I went in April, I can imagine what it's like in summer.

      I'm definitely going to heed your recommendations! x

  • I am yet to visit Balckpool even though I stay close to it. Great post.

  • There are so many parts of the UK that I still really want to visit. The South Coast, The North of Scotland and most of Wales x
