Has it always been your dream to visit the UK? Perhaps you have always wanted to see the most important landmarks in London, and maybe even venture beyond the capital city? Or you would like to visit the residences of the Royal family in Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Balmoral and Sandringham? Can you see yourself standing at the edge of 10 Downing Street, where many pivotal political decisions were made that shaped the history of Great Britain?
If you’re brave enough, a visit to the London Dungeons or The Chamber of Horrors at Madame Tussauds would be just the ticket! What about seeing the splendour of the city from The London Eye, an eagle’s eye view of The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben?
Perhaps you have your roots in the UK and Ireland. Would you like to visit the land of your ancestors – perhaps see and experience the places they once lived and worked? Times may have moved on but the landscape remains much the same and the culture still reflects the past.
Imagine being able to re enact historical battles from The Battle of Hastings to The War of the Roses or even The Battle of Bannockburn. You could even dress up in armour and take part in ‘imaginary’ battles with the relief that there will be no casualties but just lots of fun? Perhaps you would prefer to experience the nostalgia of an evening at the table of Elizabeth I at her family home or a ‘flapper’ evening dancing the night away to the sound of 1930’s music on a secluded island?
The history of Great Britain is, without doubt, one of the most interesting in Europe. Its well known royal and political figures, alongside the many events that shaped the history of this small island makes it one of the most commanding and entrepreneurial nations of our time. The influence of its imperialistic past, combined with the emigration of parts of the population, has meant that Great Britain has helped to shape global as well as national history.
