How They Dazzle Us

It is hard to put a finger on what exactly it is about the United Kingdom that makes it so special, but there is definitely something about this country. Perhaps it’s the ancient palaces and castles of London and Edinburgh, or the theatre, music, sport and art. Perhaps it is the genteel country-side of the lake district, the broads of Norfolk, or the moors of Yorkshire. Whatever it is that does it for you, the UK has a lot to offer and it feels like wherever you go that you are surrounded by iconic sites - think Routemaster Buses, Premier League, Big Ben, the Royal Family, Marmite or The Beatles.

Fish and chips are big as are curries. If you are travelling in Scotland you absolutely must try haggis which is a fantastic dish of mince and grains, traditionally cooked in a sheep’s intestines.
