Scotland’s enchanting capital Edinburgh is a city of striking contrasts. Perched dramatically on an extinct volcano, the world-famous Edinburgh Castle is visible from almost any point in the city, a constant reminder of Edinburgh’s long and fascinating history. As you explore the city’s striking architecture, tranquil green spaces and exciting attractions, you will soon understand why so many authors and poets have been inspired to create iconic characters like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Sherlock Holmes and more recently Harry Potter.
The southernmost and largest of the Channel Islands - Jersey - has much to offer with its fine blend of English and French influences. Quaint fishing villages dot the island's coastline - St Aubin, for example, boasts marvellous sandy beaches and a collection of dramatic craggy coastal walks. Festivals play a big a part in island life and barely a month goes by without a local seasonal event being celebrated. The capital is St Helier and whilst small, it is a cosmopolitan harbour town.
The coast of dreams, ravaged by the Atlantic Ocean and lined by spectacular sandy beaches, where you will find towering cliffs sheltering small rock pools. The sea is teeming with life, and the crystal-clear water is perfectly alluring, whether you are dreaming of a relaxing swim or an adrenaline-pumped afternoon of extreme sports. If you shy away from the surf, you can admire the spectacular views from above as you stroll along the tops of the cliffs or wander back into town and into one of the many delightful gardens.
