The full name of the United Kingdom is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England are four different parts of the United Kingdom. They are all British territories.
According to the characteristics of scenic spots in various regions of the UK, you can divide the tour into four major tour series. The itinerary can be combined according to your own time and preferences.
Part1: The Department of a prestigious College
1. University of Oxford
Oxford and Cambridge deserve to be the representative of Britain's famous universities. If you go to Oxford, Christ Church College (where the Harry Potter canteen is filmed) is definitely the first place to go.
Check out the famous colleges: Deer Park in Magdalen, New College, and the back garden of Trinity, the sparsely populated but beautiful Worcester. Look at the library and so on.
If you are lucky enough to catch the annual matriculation you can see the town full of students wearing robes.
2. University of Cambridge
Taking a boat tour on The River CAM is a must-visit to Cambridge. As early as 1702, this traditional activity was called Punting in The local area, which means drifting around The river landscape of Cambridge University and enjoying The world-famous College Backs.
On the way through Mathematical Bridge, Queen's College, King's Bridge, Trinity College, Bridge of Sighs, Grey Bridge and other scenic spots, beautiful scenery woven, scenery infinite.
Part2: Royal Attractions
The British royal family is one of the oldest living royal families in the world, and the royal family story is always a hot topic, so where they live is no secret.
In Britain, you can "visit" all the royal residences.
1. Buckingham Palace
Buckingham Palace is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Britain. It is also the Queen's office and official residence.
The Queen usually opens her official residence to the public in August and September each year, when you'll have the chance to see the lavish state halls and treasures from the Royal Collection. Of course, witnessing the changing of the Guard in front of Buckingham Palace was a surprise!
2. Kensington Palace
Many members of the royal family have lived there, including Queen Victoria, Diana, Princess of Wales, and now Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.
Visit the palace to learn about Victoria's own life story from the exhibition Victoria Revealed; Get a taste of the modern princess's past at a special exhibition featuring some of Diana's outfits...
3. Windsor Castle
With a history of more than 900 years, Windsor Castle is the family castle of the Windsor Dynasty of the British royal family. It is also the largest inhabited castle in the world. The Queen spends a considerable amount of time here every year. The castle is divided into upper, middle and lower areas, and contains countless treasures of the British royal family!
Of course, if you have time, you can also enjoy the town of Windsor, where Windsor Castle is located. There are many places worth visiting here, such as the famous Eton College, the Royal Jockey Club and so on.
When time permits, major royal weddings are held at Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen's official residence in Scotland.
Balmoral Castle, which is open to the public from April to July, and from April to November, the royal palaces, gardens and museums are open to the public. Hampton Court and Sandringham, known as the Versailles of Britain, are also on the agenda.
Part3: Natural Scenery Department
Planning a trip to the UK, Stonehenge will certainly be on your itinerary, mainly because it is so famous that it is equivalent to the Great Wall of China. The placement of each stone pillar of Stonehenge has excellent astronomical significance, so it is also a famous cultural temple site of prehistoric times in Europe.
2. Loch Ness
Loch Ness, which is mysterious because of the "monster" rumors, must also be the place to clock in. Although the water monster rumors are proved to be rumors, this third largest freshwater lake in the UK is definitely worth a visit in person.
3. The Scottish Highlands
The Scottish Highlands, the last stronghold of the Ice Age, have no distinctive character of their own like other hills, and are covered with low, gently undulating green grass and moss. The vulgarity of the landscape has its own unique magic, it has its own special personality. Boundless purple is different from the flowery of mountain flowers in full bloom, and more like a kind of almost in full bloom of despair.
4. Isle of Skye
Sky Island is the largest island in the Hebrides, Scotland. It has all the mountain scenery, lakes, mountains and oceans you want. Away from the hustle and bustle but also lively, if you need a place to relax and forget about the secular, then come to the nearest place to the sky.
5. Giants Causeway
The Giant's Causeway is located on the Atlantic coast about 80 kilometers from Belfast. Legend has it that an ancient Irish giant fought a Scottish giant on a causeway leading to Scotland. The route of the giant totals about 40,000 natural hexagonal stone columns, about 8 kilometers, the stone columns extending into the sea in the shape of a ladder, magnificent, magnificent.

4. Go to Bath to experience the classical elegance and idyllic scenery
Bath is a small town with only 100,000 people and not many tall buildings. The town exudes classic English elegance and ease from the inside out. It contains the remains of ancient Roman thermal baths:
There is also the style of King George's architecture, more beautiful rural scenery... Bath is the place to be if you want to enjoy a quiet English town.
5. Manchester Premier League
You may say that you are not a football fan, but to be honest, even if you are not a football fan, watching a football match in England is definitely an unforgettable experience because you can deeply understand how important football is to the English people.
You can go to Old Trafford in Manchester, you can go to the Emirates Stadium in London... This kind of original experience is definitely not the most enjoyable ~
6. Go to York to enjoy the charm of ancient England
York is the most unique of those cities in England. There is a long history here, there are still well preserved classic buildings and medieval streets, here is filled with the old British style.
In other words, the quaint city is a testament to the history of the United Kingdom, and it's a good place to visit such ancient buildings as York Minster and Castle Howard (where Jay Chou's wedding took place).
