Places to Visit in Europe

There are so many places to visit in Europe that you’ll either need a long vacation or several shorter ones to see them all, but if you want to make a start on Euro travel, here are some ideas for you, starting in the North.

The United Kingdom

With a history dating back hundreds of thousands of years and a reigning monarchy, there are dozens of places to visit in the UK alone.

You might want to start in London then visit the famous universities of Oxford or Cambridge. The Cotswolds provide unsurpassed scenic beauty and border on south Warwickshire where you’ll find Stratford-upon-Avon, the home of William Shakespeare. Then you have the Devon and Cornwall coasts which are rugged and in Cornwall especially, good for surfing.

In Wales, you’ll find Hay on Wye, capital of the second-hand book trade, Mount Snowdon and dozens of castles as well as the fantasy village of Portmerion.

In Scotland, you have the ski centre of Aviemore, Edinburgh with its historic castle and the incredible highlands and islands.
