Don't be put off by the British weather. The four nations that make up the UK – along with the surrounding islands – offer plenty of reasons to opt for a ‘staycation'. From the beautiful scenery of the Scottish Hebrides to the bustling capital city of London, the UK is packed full of things to see and places to visit.

London has long been popular with tourists from around the world, but those seeking a picturesque alternative to the city streets will find respite at the Chelsea Flower Show. The vibrant colours of the flowers displayed at the show will take your breath away. If London is too busy for your, you may appreciate a weekend break in one of the UK's other capital cities - Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh – all of which offer a unique range of architectural landmarks and a unique culture.

A short trip over to Northern Ireland will allow you to experience to Belfast, a city which has changed in recent years but the past remains depicted in various murals. The streets of the Welsh capital of Cardiff will guide you on a tour of cosmopolitan shopping centres, modern architecture, castles and museums. Edinburgh has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and is renowned for its historical palaces and castles.

Those seeking a more adventurous holiday will enjoy one of the many walking routes found in the Peak District and Lake District National Parks. When thinking of the British countryside, these are usually the first two places which spring to mind – with plenty of lush green hills, towering mountainous landscapes and glistening lakes to enjoy.

If you're seeking warmer temperatures within the United Kingdom, a visit to the charming islands of Guernsey and Jersey are definitely worth considering.

Wherever you decide to go, Fred. Olsen Travel Agents's range of UK Tours provides a great way to experience everything the British Isles has to offer.
