What makes the UK unique (part 3)

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Yep, part three of “What makes the UK unique”!

 

7. Visit London for a day:

London is one of the most visited cities in the world and is renowned for many things, obviously the House of Parliament, Big Ben, the London Eye, the Tower of London….

Another thing that puts London in the center of the map is shopping! Here one can buy anything from the latest fashion to tid-bits at the infamous Camden market. The many tourists that visit London often travel to see the same places every time, however if you look a little deeper you will be able to find a lot more than what meets the eye.

It is advisable to plan your journey ahead before arriving in London, not just because there is so much to see, but also because it can be quite daunting when visiting for the first time. If it is the first time in London, then I’d highly recommend visiting both the Big Ben but also Oxford Street for plenty of opportunities to buy the latest fashion or even a souvenir to remember the trip!

 

8. Be a spectator at the Silverstone Grand Prix:

Silverstone is one of the world’s hottest Motor Sport destinations in the whole of the UK. It is home to many various racing events, but the most famous of these it the Silverstone Formula One Grand Prix. This is really a day out for those of you that are petrol heads but can be enjoyed by the whole family if you feel inclined to take them with you.

So what can you do here? Well obviously you will be able to see some of the greatest racing machines in history, rushing past you at lightning speeds, driven by some of the most famous drivers in history.

The racetrack is also a great party atmosphere where one can camp over night between the two races (qualifications and the race).

 

9. Visit the Ancient Monument of Stonehenge:

Stonehenge is one of the most visited in-land attractions in the United Kingdom. It is shrouded in mystery and has been the source of many theories over the past few centuries. Stonehenge itself is actually a prehistoric structure which is in the country of Wiltshire and to this day archeologists still quarrel over the nature of this creation and when it was built.

Stonehenge is more than just a structure or monument. It is a reminder of the history surrounding the area and it is a tribute to those who actually built this amazing man-made monument. The surrounding areas have also been known to reveal Roman artifacts: coins and even remains overt the past few centuries.

It’s amazing that Stonehenge has even survived till today. Visiting Stonehenge will certainly be a memory that will last forever.

What makes the UK unique? (Part 2)

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

Welcome to part two of our “What makes the United Kingdom unique” article!

Here are today’s facts:

4.       Tour of the London Tower:

The tower of London was once known as the most frightening place in the whole of the United Kingdom, mainly because of the torturous goings on within the thick brick walls.

It was a place that brought fear into the heart of Londoners and made sure that they would stay on the right side of the law.

Today the tower is not so frightening. Now being a tourist attraction the Tower of London has become a sideshow to the city. Never the less, the Tower still inspires and demands respect.

5.       Watch a Football Match at Old Trafford:

Old Trafford stadium is the home of the infamous Manchester United football club. The stadium itself is a completely seated stadium meaning that there are no places available for spectators who wish to stand. The ground currently has the capacity to accommodate 75957 spectators making it the second largest football stadium in the whole of the United Kingdom.


The reason why Old Trafford is such a success over the years is obvious and since the grand opening in 1910 the fans haven’t stopped coming to watch their team play. The stadium itself is absolutely gorgeous. So if you are a Manchester United fan, or even if you’re just a football fan who’s never been to Old Trafford before; I would suggest visiting this fantastic stadium even if you only ever do it once.

 6.       Hike along the Ancient Hadrian’s Wall:

 

Hadrian’s Wall is located in the northern part of England. Now in ruins it is but a shadow of what it once represented. Tourists often visit Hadrian’s Wall, many of them with metal detectors hoping to find the next batch of Roman coins for their collection. The wall itself was built as a defensive fortification during the rule of Hadrian. The wall was approximately 73 miles long (118 km).

What do you think makes the United Kingdom special?

Over the course of the next few months we will bring to your attention several interesting things one can do in the United Kingdom.

So let’s get started:

1.       Take a royal trip to Buckingham palace:

It is safe to say that most of you know what Buckingham palace represents and where Buckingham palace is… Buckingham palace represents the British royal quarters and is as big of a tourist attraction today as it was 100 years ago, in fact maybe even bigger now.

It is the home of the royal family and will remain the home of the royal family for years to come. Although it’s not the smallest, nor is it the biggest palace in the world, it’s scale and majestic appearance inspires.

Guided tours are occasionally available and one should certainly seize the chance for such an occasion.

With no doubt, it is one of London’s most important buildings and one of the most sought after tourist attraction.

 

2.       Have a day out at Alton Towers:

 Alton Towers has been a place of attraction for many people since the 1800s when it was opened to the public as for their beautiful gardens, however since 1980 it has been the UK’s top theme park, crushing its biggest rival into administration in 2007.

Alton Towers is perhaps best known for its amazing roller-coasters such as the Nemesis, Rita and more recently Thirteen.

If you are traveling to the UK or you are already here and looking for something new and exciting to do, I would thoroughly recommend taking the time out to have a day at Alton Towers. There is something for everyone including rides, arcades, beautiful gardens and of course the manor house which is at the center of the park.

 

3.       Visit Holkham magic Beach:

Holkham Magic is a beach in England which has been named Britain’s best beach, now of course this is all a matter of opinions and each is welcome to their own but this beach really is fantastic. For those of you that are fans of motion pictures, this is the same beach which Gwyneth Paltrow walked along in the final scene of Shakespeare in love, just this fact may be intriguing enough to make you want to visit Holkham.

Holkham is also part of a major Nature Reserve, the biggest in Britain in fact, this is because of the rare flowers and animals that live in this part of the world, don’t get me wrong it certainly is not Madagascar but it is a very precious part of England. If you have not yet been here then I would suggest you make a visit.
