The UK is a beautiful country with so much to see and do in a very compact space. It can be expensive for visitors coming from other countries, but if you have a luxury budget to work with then you can guarantee a fantastic trip. Here are 5 things you should definitely include on your list…
A Boat Trip in the Lake District
The Lake District, a mountainous area in North West England, is a renowned holiday destination famous for its forests, mountains and lakes. The Lake District National Park, the most visited national park in the UK, includes almost all of the Lake District. If you choose to spend your holiday here, no matter where you begin the journey, you will enjoy the greatest views and see some of the countless local attractions, as well as the countless activities. Try the highly recommended Windermere or Ullswater cruises, as well as those at Derwent and Coniston. Windermere has the advantage of adding a steam train ride to the lake cruise. You can pick the train up from Haverthwaite or Lakeside where you can stop and visit the aquarium.
There are many luxury hotels in the District offering superb views, beautiful rooms, fine lounges, restaurants, gardens and leisure facilities. You can also choose to stay in one of the 5 star B&B’s or 5 star self-catering cottages. One thing is sure; wherever you choose to go or stay you will be treated to spectacular views of mountainous scenery, isolated bays and many forested islands.
A Round of Golf at St. Andrews
Just northeast of Edinburgh there is St. Andrews, a place of history and culture, a perfect coastal resort, and home of golf. Players from all over the world, near and far, come to strike some balls onto this magnificent course, enjoy the stunning scenery and feel like a professional. If you don’t play the sport, you can go on some of the historic walking tours, or visit nearby places. The place offers beautiful holiday cottages where you can stay. There are also road cycling holidays through St. Andrews. This is a unique way to view some of Scotland’s most beautiful landscapes, and a chance to stay in some of the luxury hotels en route.
A great time to come to St. Andrews is during the Open Championship week, not only if you like golf. During the championship, the town centre, attractions and beaches are shockingly quiet, which makes this a great time to go shopping, walking around and simply enjoy the summer. But in the evenings, everything changes and becomes hectic, with restaurants and bars full of golf lovers and a few celebrities.
A Log Cabin Getaway
If you want to try a different self-catering cottage holiday you should choose one of the attractive log cabins in the UK. The cabins are located in the beautiful countryside, like these, with stunning views. You can choose the one in a woodland forest or on a working farm, and you can be sure to have a great relaxing holiday.
If you like the taste of luxury, with designer fittings and modern facilities, don’t worry. Even though the cabins are made of wood and blend with natural surroundings, some of them offer extravagant open-plan living, bubbling hot-tubs and more. Some log cabins are in parks with shared facilities like children’s play areas, swimming pools, saunas, and nature trails. You can go walking or cycling, lake fishing, bird-watching and relax on your verandah at the end of the day enjoying the sounds of nature.
VIP at the British Grand Prix
The British Grand Prix is one of the races in the FIA Formula One World Championship. Nowadays it is held at the Silverstone Circuit near the village of Silverstone in Northamptonshire, England. It is one of the oldest Grands Prix and was designated the European Grand Prix five times. A large, zealous and knowledgeable crowd creates a fantastic atmosphere at this event. The big and comfortable redesigned grandstands are always crowded with no empty seats. During the glamorous Grand Prix Silverstone hosts and welcomes some of the biggest celebrities of the world. When visiting why not book your trip through a luxury travel expert like these, and be as glamorous as the famous musicians, actors, sportsmen and entertainers can be seen there.
When you visit the medieval Warwick Castle, you are surrounded by great history, magic, legends and adventure. It is located on a sandstone bluff above the River Avon in Warwick.
The castle is now open for the visitors and full with things to do. Around the castle there are acres of woodland and lawn with a large glass conservatory. Tourists mostly go straight for some of the special, touristy displays installed inside the chambers and towers. Over the footbridge there is the site of tournaments and other similar medieval excitements and interactive attractions. History stage shows and walk-through adventures are also organised. When you get hungry, you can eat in one of the restaurants or just have a picnic lunch in the grounds.
The perfect way to escape all of the modern technology for an evening is spending a luxurious night in one of the castle’s medieval suites. Each room has its own private floor, and a private tour of the grounds is also organised.
