The variety of cultures and landscapes, sites and cities packed onto this island is best described by the simple phrase: Great Britain is great. From the windswept plains of Dartmoor to the vast wilderness of the Scottish Highlands, from Stonehenge to Loch Ness, Great Britain has been a breeding grounds for myths and mystery for over 30 centuries. Yet this island nation is anything but a museum. Country villages where time seems to have stood still contrast with fast-paced cities where gothic cathedrals meet gleaming skyscrapers. The ideal combination of stunning attractions and gracious hospitality make Great Britain one of the world's most popular tourist destinations.
