United Kingdom travel guide

4.3
Specialty Museums · Nightlife · Castles
Home to an impressive 25 World Heritage sites, the United Kingdom, which includes England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, has hundreds of museums to explore, thousands of parks and gardens to stroll through, and tens of thousands of communities to discover. From Land’s End in the south to John O’Groats in the north, the country is packed with tourist attractions that can fill a range of itineraries. With nearly 30 million tourists visiting every year, the UK is ranked among the top ten holiday destinations in the world. Known for its royalty, this country also represents a diverse patchwork of native and immigrant cultures. Although Britannia no longer rules the waves, it possesses a captivating history and a dynamic modern culture, both of which remain hugely influential on the rest of the world.

Staffordshire travel guide

3.8
Theme Parks · Gardens · Ski Areas
Featuring a landscape of undulating hills and wild moorlands, Staffordshire is known for containing some of the biggest and most important coal mines in the country. Nestled between the sprawling urban centers of Manchester and Birmingham, this region offers visitors a chance to explore surprisingly large green areas, which in the northern part of the county reach all the way to the hills of the renowned Peak District. Staffordshire remains an under-explored part of the country, providing travelers who do linger in the area with an unhurried holiday experience, far from the noise and the bustle of the more tourist-driven spots. The highlight of any vacation in Staffordshire is certainly the city of Lichfield, noted for containing the only medieval English cathedral with three spires.

World heritage site · Bodies of Water · Specialty Museums
Keswick is an English market town and civil parish, historically in Cumberland, and since 1974 in the Borough of Allerdale in Cumbria. The town, in the Lake District National Park, just north of Derwentwater, and 4mi from Bassenthwaite, had a population of 4,821 at the time of the 2011 census.There is considerable evidence of prehistoric occupation of the Keswick area, but the first recorded mention of the town dates from the 13th century, when Edward I of England granted a charter for Keswick's market, which has maintained a continuous 700-year existence. In Tudor times the town was an important mining area, and from the 18th century onwards it has increasingly been known as a holiday centre; tourism has been its principal industry for more than 150 years. Its features include the Moot Hall; a modern theatre, the Theatre by the Lake; one of Britain's oldest surviving cinemas, the Alhambra; and the Keswick Museum and Art Gallery in the town's largest open space, Fitz Park. Among the town's annual events is the Keswick Convention, an Evangelical gathering attracting visitors from many countries.
