Destination Travel Guide to Britain
Great Britain – a relatively small island off the coast of North West Europe; a small speck on the surface of the globe and yet a destination recognized the world over.
Britain is an island of temperate (mild and rainy) climate, with few dramatic geographical phenomena and a relatively small population of just over 60 million people. And yet Britain remains a massive visitordestination, one of the most visited countries on the planet and home to sights instantly recognized the world over. For when you visit Britain, you will see that the real attraction here lies in understated natural beauty, our long history, our rich heritage and our great people who have contributed so much to the world.
Visitors to Britain enjoy rolling hills, craggy coastlines, lush lake-lands, misty lochs, barren moors, heather strewn glens, ancient fortresses, mysterious stone circles, grandiose cathedrals, opulent palaces, cobbled squares, thatch cottages, quaint villages, the cities of London, Edinburgh and Cardiff and of course the homes of renowned figures past and present.
For centuries Britain has been punching above its weight politically, culturally, in science, sport, music and many otherdomains. Britain and our people have given the world its most commonly used language, political democracy, the law of gravity, warm beer, Romeo and Juliet, the Beatles, the World Wide Web and of course er… Cricket. And all the while we Brits remain enduringly modest!
Great Britain is composed of three separate and unique countries; England, Scotland and Wales. These three nations are strikingly individual in character and culture and indeed would probably not associate much with each other if they weren’t all attached by borders and jostled together on a small island. However, these three feisty little nations do come together to form (with Northern Ireland) the United Kingdom, a great nation sharing a common language, currency and governance. Together these three countries and their peoples combine to create an unforgettable visitor destination which should be experienced at least once in a lifetime.
So whether it’s to visit one particular country or region or whether you want to experience all aspects of Great Britain, let Adeo Travel share our enthusiasm and welcome you as one of our guests.
