On your visit to the UK, you are actually travelling to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, four very different constituent countries for the price of one!
The northern part of the island of Great Britain is Scotland, a country of stunning landscapes, rich history and a fiercely independent people. Hotels in Scotland are as varied as the landscape, from grand hotels in elegant cities, to country house hotels nestled by lochs, or friendly Scotland bed and breakfasts, where the welcome is as warm as the porridge!
The western part of the island that juts out towards Ireland is Wales, home to wild mountains, gentle valleys, stunning beaches and the original Welsh language. (Never fear, the staff in your hotel in Wales will all speak English!) From the bustling modern city of Cardiff in the south to the mountains of the north, Wales offers everything for a great holiday. As they say in Welsh, "Croeso i Gymru"!
England covers the remainder of the island, from the far western edge of Cornwall to Hadrian's Wall in the north, the traditional border with Scotland. Wherever you wish to visit in England, from historic city to golden beach, rugged coastline to scenic lakeside, you'll always find a good hotel in England to call home for the night.
Northern Ireland lies in the top right hand corner of Ireland, and remains very British in spirit. A short break in Northern Ireland is ideal for recharging your energies, where you can walk for miles on deserted beaches, bird watch on magnificent lakes or simply explore historic cities such as Belfast and Londonderry. Wherever you choose to stay in Northern Ireland; hotel, bed and breakfast or guesthouse, you will always be welcome!
