If it’s that time of the year to start planning for your next vacation, the UK should be on your list of places to go. There are a few things you should consider doing to get the most out of your trip. For all of the nature lovers out there, Cairngorms National Park should be top priority. This countryside is absolutely stunning and features UK’s highest mountain range. There is a vast abundance of wildlife, forests, rivers and lochs to explore. You can also do some bird watching, skiing during the winter, and if you enjoy roughing it, you also have the option to do some camping.
Sark and Herm Island are also wonderful places to check out if you enjoy sailing. You will always see a Yatch or sailboat cruising along the water, and moorings are located at Harve Gosselin and La Greve de la Ville. Also, you cannot visit this beautiful place without stopping by the infamous Stonehenge. The stones themselves stand at 22 inches high, and attract hundreds of visitors every day. It stands on Salisbury Plain and is still to date one of the most famous surviving ancient sites in the world.
Outside of the art and history which are prominent features of the that should be thoroughly explored, one can’t forget about the horse racing festivals, especially ones like the Cheltenham Festival, The Grand National, and of course the up and coming Royal Ascot Festival this June. Being able to attend the said festival will be like no other event you have ever experienced. Each year, various member of the British Royal Family attend including The Prince of Wales who arrives each day in a horse drawn carriage.
The Royal Ascot is a huge event in the British social calendar, and dates back to the year 1711. The stamina needed to win this race is unquestionable, and it will be one of the most talked about races of the year. The Gold Cup is still the feature race of the third day of Royal Ascot, and has been traditionally the busiest day of the week. Back in 2009, Yeats, who is an English racehorse trained by Aidan O’Brien, and ridden by Johnny Murtagh, won his fourth consecutive Gold Cup. From a betting point of view, 2015 Gold Cup betting at Royal Ascot is one of the biggest events of the year. In addition to the beauty of the horses, the fashion displayed at the Royal Ascot is nothing short of spectacular. Because being able to get your hands on tickets for Royal Ascot Ladies day is so difficult, it is recommended that you purchase them early.
Traveling to the UK will be one of the most amazing trips you have ever taken. The sights, scenery, and all around history of this place are so magnificent; the odds are you won’t be able to fit everything in just one trip.
