United Kingdom Introduction  
  1. Pick any one of Britain's 4 major countries and you’ll be sure to have a unique holiday fuelled by strong culture, fantastic tourist attractions and the 'British experience'. England and its capital London is sure to provide a complete experience, from sipping tea outside Buckingham Palace to soaking up the sun in Devon, you will not be left unhappy. Scotland offers something just a little bit different, with Glasgow and Edinburgh as its two major cities and the vast Scotland highlands, an entirely new culture is waiting. Ireland being separated from the rest of the UK has its own culture and atmosphere which is certainly something to enjoy at least once in your life time and finally Wales, with its own history and culture is a more relaxed holiday location.

Cities of Interest  
  1. Bristol

    For anyone who enjoys entertainment, Bristol is the place to be. As a finalist for the European Capital of Culture it is no wonder so much is here to enjoy. Music, theatre and film are especially represented. The Bristol Old Vic is an ideal place to take in a show with some of the best productions available. If music is your interest, Bristol can be the starting destination to hop from place to place to see up and coming artists.

  2. Birmingham

    The largest city outside of the capital London and one of the fastest growing cities in Europe, Birmingham offers both a great level of entertainment and business. For a city which started life as a midsized market town, growth in technology, science and economic trade has really helped push this city into international view. With a good international reputation for its shopping, art galleries, theatre and museums, you can see why people are now starting to choose Birmingham over London for their British experience.

  3. Glasgow

    Owing much to the boom of the UK's Industrial Revolution, Glasgow has grown rapidly from being a small town of Scotland's west coast to being a hub of international trade. Whilst trade and business still hold much importance to the city, with the Commonwealth Games being held in the city in 2014 and its growth in popularity among global tourists, the city has seen a lot of renovation and is now a top attraction for people wanting a small city break.

  4. London

    London is a truly global city that blends cosmopolitan vibrancy and cutting edge trends while remaining characteristically British. On first appearance the sheer size of London can appear overwhelming, yet on closer inspection it is a city of districts full of remarkable historic and cultural offerings. It is host to a handful of some of the world most iconic landmarks such as Big Ben, Tower Bridge and Buckingham Palace. Those who wish to hire a car in London will find that most major rental companies are located across the city.

  5. Edinburgh

    To show the diverse level of entertainment Edinburgh has on offer, look no further then Edinburgh Castle, the iconic tower above the city, and Edinburgh International Festival with the Fringe and Military Tattoo being known around the globe. But this is on the stares of a Scottish holiday with an amazing zoo, plenty of theatres, museums and galleries and of course the Scottish Highlands. With so much to see and do, Car Hire is the best way to get to each of these first rate attractions.

  6. Belfast

    Belfast has been established as an official city since 1888, but has seen people living in the area since the Bronze Age. The area has a rich culture with both national and city pride showing throughout the city. From a historical perspective, it is best known as the capital of Northern Ireland as well as the city who built the RMS Titanic. With a rich history as a seaport, linen manufacturer and ship building, there is plenty to do and see while in Belfast.

  7. Manchester

    The Manchester Airport has been around for quite some time and today has grown to the largest UK airport outside of the London area. Boasting upwards of 20 million passengers a year, this airport manages to get everyone through the airport with only three large terminals. The Manchester Airport is unique in many ways and is an excellent airport to consider for travel to the Manchester region or to locations beyond.
