When visiting the United Kingdom it’s important to know that the country is made up of several regions with their own unique national identities and cultures. The major regions are England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland - collectively referred to as the United Kingdom. Several islands and overseas territories spanning the globe also fall under UK jurisdiction, and the country is also home to diverse cultures from all across the globe.
For most, the best season to visit the UK would be during summer time (June - August), simply because the days are warmer and generally sunnier (though rain is always around the corner in the British Isles). If you’d prefer to experience some skiing or snowboarding in Scotland, you’d do best to visit between December and February.
London: By far the most popular destination in the country, a London tour has to be on your list. Explore the city highlights such as Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, and many other historical structures and destinations.
Scotland: The northern reaches of Britain contain many gems such as the historic capital of Edinburgh and the many scenic lakes of the highlands, including the legendary Loch Ness and the Isle of Skye.
Stonehenge: One of the most famous ancient structures in the world, Stonehenge has awed and stimulated the imagination of millions of people since its construction thousands of years ago. Go on a journey through human history by exploring the area as well as nearby Southampton.
Bath: The picturesque city of Bath is most famous for its large number of Roman-era bathhouses. The city has kept up its heritage and today is known as one of Europe's greatest spa towns. Marvel at Roman architecture and relax in one of the city’s many modern spa facilities.
Queuing culture - never cut in line when waiting at a shop or for transport.
Be polite - everyone appreciates ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’
Drive on the left - if you’re renting a car this is particularly important to remember for obvious reasons.
Respect local customs, especially at places of worship.
Remember that the UK is a multicultural place, so be respectful of different groups.
Don’t litter, and only smoke in designated areas.
Don’t chew with your mouth open or spit in public.
Don’t forget to tip if required, ask your waiter about their restaurant’s policy.
Don’t refer to all locals as ‘English’, people from Scotland, Wales, or Northern Ireland prefer to be addressed by their cultural identity.
Don’t take photos of people without their permission.
Having a private tour guide accompany you will help ensure you get the most out of your United Kingdom tour experience. Our guides can not only take you to the best spots, use their experience as locals to show you the country’s hidden gems, and generally take care of details such as transportation, scheduling, and travel recommendations.
