5 Things to Do to Make Your UK Vacation More Interesting

DO A LITERARY TOUR

The English language bequeathed to the world some of the most compelling literary works in form of poems, stories and plays, which in turn inspired romantic myths about English men and women who authored them. The English countryside that inspired such remarkable literary works is compelling and attracts visitors from all over the world. Taking a literary tour of UK takes you to the birthplaces, graves and landscapes where writers imagination and inspiration originated. You get to peek at the enigmatic lives of Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, Byron and Shakespeare.

PARTY AT LONDON’S NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL

London’s Notting Hill Carnival takes place in August and millions of people flock to the Notting Hill area of the capital to take part in the world’s largest and most vibrant street parties. It is a celebration of the Caribbean culture; it is certainly not an event for the fainthearted or the shy ones.  Hundreds of sparingly attired dancers and performers dance vigorously to the booming sounds of reggae, dub, and hip-hop and grime reverberating from the huge music systems.

TAKE AN ENGLISH COURSE

The English language is the international language of Business, Science and technology. Taking an English language course in the UK gives you an opportunity to immerse into the culture where the language is used and perfect your English communication skills. The UK is a multicultural and multi-faith country that welcomes visitors from every corner of the globe and therefore gives you an opportunity to interact with other students from different parts of the world. There are over 370 English Language Schools located in historic and cultural towns giving you an opportunity to explore even when not in class.

PLAY GOLF ON SOME OF THE WORLD’S BEST COURSES

While staying in the UK, make sure to practice teeing off in the motherland of golf. The UK offers some of the most delightful and stylish golf courses in the world. Whether you want to play in scenic parkland courses, ancient courses or challenging course links along the coast, the variety of courses in UK will not disappoint. With Ryder Cup venues like Belfry and Celtic Manor and the Open host venue such as Royal Birkdale, there is no better way to make your UK holiday more interesting than playing golf in tastiest courses in the world.

TAKE ON THE 4 PEAKS CHALLENGE

If you feel like you came, saw but have not yet conquered the UK, why not try the four peaks challenge.  It means attempting to climb the highest mountains in each of the UK’s four states (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) within 24 hours.

That should not be scary at all; admittedly, the UK’s mountains are relatively small when viewed on an international scale. Tackling these four mountains give you a sense of achievement and reward you with incredible views. You do not have to do the 24-hour version; you can visit the mountains at your own pace.
