Everyone remembers their first visit to London, but it’s easy to forget that the United Kingdom is way more than its capital city. Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland are four diverse faces of one stunning country. Trade a rail pass for a pair of hiking boots and explore the rugged cliffs, serene swimming holes and lesser-visited parts of the isles that put you face-to-face with unspoiled nature. These are the top TRIPS by Culture Trip showcasing the finest of the UK.
1 . Swim Wild, Sip Cider and Meditate in Rural England
Who knew serenity was only a train ride away? Depart the bustling London Underground and head for the beauty of the Thames Valley. Slow your gait and stay awhile – perhaps four days? Try your hand at SUP yoga on the Thames and let yourself fall into the moment with expert-led meditation sessions. This laid-back wellness trip has an easy-breezy focus on your physical and mental wellbeing. Well, not too health-focused: there’s still time for cider, sourdough pizza and an Aperol spritz.

2 . Walking and Swimming the Wilds of Devon
It’s about time you get to know the wilds of Devon. This stunning county stands arm-in-arm with both the Bristol Channel and the English Channel, creating an outdoor playground ripe for adventure. Get those muscles loosened up from head to toe as you swim, kayak, hike and cycle your way between the two waterways. Tackle the Tarka Trail’s old railway line and wade in the ethereal Sharrah Pool, accessible only by foot. Those out of breath just reading this should note that a stop for afternoon tea is always an option.

3 . Snowshoeing and Dog Sledding in a Scottish Winter Wonderland
What’s included in your dreamy winter wonderland itinerary? Nibbling award-winning artisan chocolate under the Northern Lights? Cuddling a sled dog after it whisks you through the wilderness? Sipping a warm glass of whisky as the snow falls ever so gently? Check off all the boxes and live out your wintry fantasy in the Scottish Highlands. This short yet challenging adventure escape in Glencoe has all of the above, and then some. Add snowshoeing and indoor ice climbing to the list and you’ll earn every bit of chocolate and scotch.

4 . Find Your Wild Side in North Wales
Get ready to get wild in North Wales. This is no trip to your auntie’s place in the countryside – you’ll be laying out your socks in off-grid ecolodges and renovated stables when you’re not descending into salt mines and hiking Snowdonia National Park. You’ll be far from the chip shop as well, so bring your own curry sauce for whatever you find while foraging. Keep a few stories at the ready, too, for campfire tales under the stars.

5 . Britain’s Last Frontier: Exploring the Hebridean Isles
You’ve watched the sunrise over the Thames and the sunset in Snowdonia, so now it’s time to discover Britain’s last frontier: the Outer Hebrides. Get off the mainland and get the islands of northwest Scotland on your bucket list. The mystical Isle of Skye and its fantastical Fairy Pools are almost as magical as passing the Glenfinnan Viaduct, featured in the Harry Potter films. Jump on this week-long trip through the Hebridean Isles and get ready to see the sights with Scottish whisky in-hand.
