Every year, millions of people visit the United Kingdom, which is composed of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. There is no shortage of sights to see in the United Kingdom; castles, ruins and other remnants of the region’s rich history can be found nearly everywhere you go in the entire region.
On that note, one of the best things to do when you go to Britain is to go on a Britain tour, like a British castle tour. If you go on an English castle tour, you are almost guaranteed to see Highclere Castle, which is the site of the famous television show Downton Abbey. Highclere Castle is in Hampshire, and has been used for exterior shots of Downton Abbey and the majority of the interior filming. It is a common site to see for tourists partly because the set locations are only about an hour and a half away from London.
Downton Abbey has actually received much critical acclaim from television critics, and the show has won a bevy of accolades, including a Golden Globe Award for best miniseries or television film and a Primetime Emmy Award for outstanding miniseries. Interestingly, the majority of the food used in the Downton Abbey kitchens is real, which is a testament to how seriously the show takes its production.
If you go to Scotland, many people like to go on Scotland bus tours. A typical Scotland bus tour will show all the interesting places to visit in Scotland, like Loch Ness, Edinburgh Castle, and many other sights in the beautiful highlands and lowlands of Scotland. The major cities in Scotland, Glasgow and Edinburgh, are major tourist hubs and offer many exciting things for people of all nationalities to engage themselves in.
Britain is a very beautiful, very historic place, and as a result, many people like to visit, sometimes very often. The nations that comprise the U.K. are all aware of their affinity for attracting tourists, and as such there are many areas geared towards tourists. Plus, there are many travel agencies that offer things like bus tours, castle tours, and tours that point out other entertaining or memorable sights.
