Small in size but great in every other way, the United Kingdom's countries of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are rich in history and culture. Visitors to the UK are provided with architecture, food and activities as diverse as anywhere in the world.
From the cosmopolitan metropolis of London to the dramatic landscape of the Lake District, United Kingdom hotels have something for everyone.
The capital cities of the UK provide a superb starting point for exploring the British Isles. London, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast each have international airports covering destinations all over the world. How about Edinburgh's world-famous New Year Hogmanay celebrations? Just be sure to book in advance as the city's population swells at this time of year. Or Belfast's newly opened museum celebrating the building and lasting legacy of the doomed Titanic? You could stay in a plush serviced apartment overlooking the River Taff in Cardiff or perhaps splashing out on a luxurious room at the Ritz or Savoy in London is more your style.
Cities in the north of England are warm and welcoming. Staying at the Malmaison, Intercontinental or Rocco Forte hotels provides a base to explore Liverpool, home of the Beatles and a city recently named Europe's cultural capital. Liverpool's near neighbour Manchester offers some of the best shopping opportunities in the country and a stay at the Marriott hotel is perfect for the Trafford Centre complex. In comparison, Macdonald's hotels in the areas surrounding Leeds and Newcastle mean you can enjoy the buzz of the city in the day and some peace and quiet at night.
The United Kingdom is home to fifteen breath-taking national parks and numerous other Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The rugged rocks of the Giants Causeway are a far cry from the picture perfect cottages of south west England's Cotswolds but they are equally irresistible.
Traditionally British locations deserve traditionally British accommodation and for this Bed and Breakfasts are ideal. From warm and cosy to stylish and boutique, the UK has a fantastic range of guesthouses. In addition to this, many heritage properties, such as castles and sprawling country estates, have been converted into accommodation providing a truly unique holiday opportunity.
History is at the heart of the UK. Following in the literary footsteps of Shakespeare in Stratford-Upon-Avon or Jane Austen in Bath should not be missed. And exploring the imposing cathedrals at York and Canterbury is a similarly memorable experience. When staying in these historically rich areas, you may not want to spend too much time in your accommodation so opting for good value hotels such as Holiday Inn, Travelodge and Premier Inn would be a sensible choice.
Whether it's a city break, a rural retreat or a traditional seaside holiday the United Kingdom is overflowing with choices to suit visitors all year round.
