Golf Courses · Castles · Aquariums
Fife boasts one of the best public transportation systems in the country, so getting in and around the region is quick and easy. Most visitors to the so-called Kingdom of Fife find themselves inescapably drawn to St Andrews, home to a world-famous golf course and Scotland’s oldest university, established in 1410. Despite the county’s reputation for being little more than the southern commuter belt to Edinburgh and the town of St Andrews, its people are very proud of their colorful past. As the birthplace of Adam Smith, the father of modern economics, the area has a history steeped in economic achievement. An atmosphere of distinctness from the rest of Scotland gives this area an old-world charm, enforced by the multitude of quaint fishing villages dotting the countryside.

Norfolk travel guide

4.4
Beaches · Gardens · Theme Parks
Norfolk is a low-lying and predominantly rural county named after the ancient "North Folk" tribes who used to live here. The locals are fond of saying that they "have one foot on the land, and one in the sea." Nowhere is that more true than in the famous Broads region, consisting of a vast network of inland waterways, lakes, and marshes. Though Norfolk’s principal appeal for many tourists may very well be that it’s not included on the average itinerary, this rural getaway does boast Norwich, a thriving regional capital noted as one of the country’s top ten shopping destinations. Never very far from the water, visitors sightseeing in this region can enjoy sandy beaches, fishing villages, and coastal nature reserves.
