Visiting Britain and want to see as much as possible?

Visiting Britain and want to see as much as possible?

One of the questions we are most asked is by people who have limited time visiting Britain; who want to see as much as possible of London and other cities and also as much as possible of the rest of England, Scotland and Wales, plus sometimes a trip over to Ireland.

How is the best way to do this?

Well the simple answer it is about balance of time and the single biggest mistake is to dedicate too much time to London and not enough time to the rest. London is a magnificent city, but most of the classic landmarks can bee seen in a day and there are excellent tours that include all and are far better value than visiting separately. Please see below with some ideas.

This can be topped up with an evening at the theater and dinner, which combined with the day tour will leave you feeling you have achieved much and had a full flavor of London. Some will find this enough, other may wish to add on one or more days to visit museums and galleries and experience more night life, but if you have say 11 days to play with, then just 3 in London will work and then 8 touring Britain will achieve much.

What is the most visited London Attraction?

Tower of London

Seeing the Crown Jewels – Enjoy the spectacular display of the Crown Jewels, revealing these priceless treasures like never before. The Crown Jewels, part of the Royal Collection and still regularly used by The Queen, include some of the most extraordinary diamonds in the world.

Please email for Tower of London tours, including an option for a private visit when the Tower is closed to see the crown jewels and avoid the queues.

What is the best way to see as much of the rest of Britain and possibly Ireland in 7 days?

By far the best value is an organised tour that includes accommodation, meals and entrance costs (avoid queues on the day). There are a number of excellent options for these types of tour and we have found two outstanding 7 day options, one that includes England, Scotland and Wales and another that also includes Ireland – all in 7 days! Please see below for more information.

What is the most visited out of London Attraction?


The first major construction at Stonehenge was a circular ditch, with an internal bank and a smaller external bank, built about 3000 BC. Today the ditch and inner bank are visible as low earthworks in the grass, but the outer bank has largely been ploughed away. The ditch on the eastern side is deeper because this half was excavated in the 1920s.

The best value way to see Stonehenge from London is by organised tour and here are some Stonehenge Tours Examples.
