Where to begin? London is not just the biggest and best tourist destination in the UK, it’s one of the best in the world too. Oozing history, culture, prestige, style, and everything else in between, this city should not be missed. Shop til you drop on Oxford street, stuff yourself silly with fish and chips, catch a West End show, get a glimpse of the Queen at Buckingham Palace, hear Big Ben chime at noon – the list is endless!

Oxford is known the world over as the home of one of the best, universities in the world. Five minutes here is enough to enchant someone, and several days could easily be spent wandering around awe-struck by the beautiful architecture. Just some of the many worthy things you should add to your sightseeing list are the impressive Bodleian Library and fascinating Ashmolean Museum, and the stunning Christ Church and Magdalen Colleges, used as locations for several films, including Harry Potter.

Salisbury is a cathedral town, and boy does it have a spectacular cathedral. Built in the 1200s, it boasts the highest spire in England and is surrounded by perfectly manicured lawns. There’s plenty more to see in the town too – Old Sarum, the original site of the city with evidence of habitation as early as 3,000 BC, is a must. Not too far away is Stonehenge, a neolithic monument and iconic landmark of England.

The historical city of Bath dates from Roman times and is world famous for its hot springs; the only place in Britain where you can indulge in natural hot springs. As well as the many public baths and the original, 2,000 year old Roman Baths, there are also many exquisite examples of Georgian architecture – the sweeping Royal Crescent is unmissable. There are many leafy parks to lounge in once you’ve finished with the baths too.

The pristine town of Windsor with its stunning medieval castle is still regularly visited by the Queen and the royal family, who use the castle as their private residence away from London. The nearby Eton College is where many of the family members (as well as the best of the best of British society) are educated, and both are simply stunning complexes to wander around. Windsor is surrounded by typically English rolling countryside, just begging to be explored.
