Great Britain is a unique destination – comfortable in its similarities to the USA, yet intriguing with an incredibly rich culture, vast history, lush scenery and world-class art and architecture. Encompassing three countries in one, you can experience its diversity – from the English metropolis of London to mysterious lake district in Scotland to the remote hills of Wales. And its relatively compact size makes it easy to explore its diverse offerings. You can visit a museum in the morning, a castle in the afternoon, and then take in an award-winning performance at night.
Great Britain is a destination for everyone – No matter what your interests. History lovers can explore castles, palaces, and ancient Roman ruins, not to mention 5,000-year old Stonehenge. Art lovers will appreciate the castles too, as well as the plethora of museums, galleries, and theatre – traditional and Avant-Garde. Sports aficionados can hike the Moors, fish the lakes, play golf at St Andrew’s or watch tennis at Wimbledon. Lakani World Tours can create a travel itinerary best suited for you – depending on your time, interests, and budget. A small sample of our recommended sites in each destination is below, but the touring possibilities are endless.
