Traditional yet relaxed, this impossibly charming country delivers seemingly endless surprises around every corner. It’s a journey through time, from prehistoric Stonehenge to centuries-old castles all the way to futuristic urban structures and of course the ubiquitous pubs that all seem to await with a warm welcome and a cold pint. History buffs are spoilt for choice here with so many heritage sites to explore, adventurists revel in endless walks and climbs through the hills of the countryside, and for those who love their sport, there’s nothing like cheering along with the buoyant crowds at a football game.
