United Kingdom Travel Guide
Dynamic and diverse as well as tranquil and serene, the UK has a massive range of things to offer. London is one of my favorite cities in the world but what really excites me is getting out into the countryside. The home of so much pop culture and so much history this place has something for everyone, no matter what you seek.

When to go
A mild climate with winters never getting horribly freezing and summers usually not usually too hot, although in recent years summers have been seeing more extreme days. The weather can be unpredictable from year to year but in general you’ll find the warmest weather between April and September. June – August is the busiest time so you might need to book in advance.
