A Great British Adventure
By Heather Reid
There has never been a better time to be a tourist in the United Kingdom. From London, Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle and Edinburgh, Britain is buzzing. In London, the energy is quite exhilarating and as well as visiting The Mall and Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Nelsons Column in Trafalgar Square, there are many cultural and culinary experiences to be had. Art lovers can enjoy some of the finest painting and museum collections in the world, with the National Gallery, Tate Modern and Saatchi to name a few, and there are a wealth of theatres and entertainments on offer in the West End. Take a boat ride down the River Thames to Tower Bridge, a flight on the magnificent London Eye or simple stroll through Borough Food Market at London Bridge.
When visiting London, you might want to drive out to some of the attractions around the capital, including the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, Hampton Court Palace and historic Windsor Castle. No matter where you plan to travel in the UK, driving is an easy way to get around, and you can hire your cheap car at any of the UK’s major cities and airports including London Heathrow Airport (LHR), Gatwick Airport (LGW) in Surrey and Stansted Airport (STN) in Essex, as well as the Eurostar Terminal in Ashford, Kent.
