UK

Did you know that despite rising fuel costs and interest rates, the strong Aussie Dollar has meant travelling overseas is as affordable as ever! Not only does your dollar go further but many costs have actually come down!

The United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations. The beauty of travel in England is the compact nature of the country. By spending less time going between places and more time in them, you can immerse yourself in the scenery instead of passing through.

England is rich in history – from the ancient megaliths of Stonehenge to the space-age domes of the Eden Project in Cornwall. It’s also a trip to the 21st-century: London is gearing up for the 2012 Olympics while cities like Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle revel in their heritage and confidently face the future, with industrial buildings revitalised as waterfront galleries or trendy apartments, flanked by tempting bars, shops, restaurants and some of the finest music venues in the world.

Make sure your arrival in London goes smoothly with our guide to customs and visa regulations. You should check for the latest updates on the relevant UK government site.
