With London, the largest city in Europe, as its capital, the UK receives about 28 million tourists each year. Most organize their trip around the bustling metropolis of London where you can:
- Enjoy a Shakespeare play in the reconstructed Globe Theatre.
- Walk amongst the ghosts of Anne Boleyn and Lady Jane Grey at the Tower of London.
- View the Rosetta Stone, key to deciphering the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs.
- Visit Churchill’s Cabinet War Rooms, where Britain’s government took shelter during the Blitz of WWII.
But there’s much more to England than its capital city. Ancient Roman baths and Regency architecture draw visitors to Bath; Shakespeare’s humble beginnings attract literary types to Stratford-Upon-Avon; Stonehenge mystifies visitors in Wiltshire: and beautifully preserved medieval streets and a stunning Gothic cathedral are the gems of York.
