The Appeal of Britain


It's not hard to see why Americans find Britain so appealing, when there isn't much in their own country over a few hundred years old. The popularity of TV programmes such as 'Poldark' and 'Downton Abbey' has also helped attract tourists. Most Americans come to the UK for the world famous sights such as Stonehenge, Hadrian's Wall and Blenheim Palace. London is one of the most visited cities in the world and most tourists visit not only for the famous sights such as St. Paul's, the Tower and Buckingham Palace, but for the dozens of museums, the theatres, shopping and nightlife. But Americans also visit Britain for the chance to experience cobbled streets, ancient stone circles and carvings, Medieval churches, markets that have been operating for centuries, and a game of golf on the world's oldest courses.


Where To Go In Britain


Most visitors spend time in London, and there is enough to do in the city to keep you busy for several weeks. Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey and the British Museum should be on every first time visitor's list, while other things to do include the Maritime Museum at Greenwich, the several museums in South Kensington, the London Eye, shopping in Portobello Road or Borough Market, and an evening at the Royal Opera House. Other cities to consider are York, Oxford, Cambridge, Portsmouth, Bath, Canterbury, Brighton and Stratford, all of which can be visited on a day trip from London.


Sampling British Culture


Britain has plenty of must see sights. But a visit here is also a chance to sample the country's unique culture, and any first time visitor should enjoy a drink in a pub, have afternoon tea in a tea room, shop at a local food market, and take in a cricket or soccer match. Visiting a seaside resort also gives an insight into the British character, and funfairs, beach huts, fish and chips, rock and Punch and Judy are all uniquely British. And if possible, don't miss a unique British festival, whether it's cheese rolling in Gloucestershire, Bonfire Night in Lewes, or the Appleby Horse and Gypsy Fair in Cumbria.
