Without a doubt one of the countries that had a feature packed 2012 was Great Britain. It was a year full of celebrations including a Royal Wedding, Royal Jubilee and the London Olympics that will rank as one of the best ever. As the year drew to a close there was a new Bond blockbuster and a New Year’s firework display that rocked the River Thames.
So after an outstanding 2012 what does 2013 have in store for Great Britain? The afterglow from the Olympics still shines brightly and at the end of July the first section of the Olympic park will be open to visitors. Recent victories for the UK’s Andy Murray in 2012 set-up what could be an exciting Wimbledon in June and in there will be a new way to see London from the EU’s tallest building The Shard which opens for observations in February.
Travel on from the capital and you’ll find a land that is rich in history and beauty. Explore in the footsteps of Romans in the spa town of Bath or witness the ancient structures at Stonehenge. A journey through the magnificent Lake District will amaze and there is almost nothing like the charm of the Cotswolds.
Head up to Scotland and you’ll find that 2013 has been declared the year of natural Scotland. Enjoy the tranquil vistas of the highlands and lochs or for a louder alternative a journey to Edinburgh in August and will bring an opportunity to watch the famous Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
After the perfect showcase of 2012 there’s clearly plenty more excitement to come in 2013, it’s no surprise that Great Britain is making the hot list for many travellers.
