With a wide range of landscapes, multifaceted history, royal and noble families, and marvelous architecture, Great Britain is a travel magnet. It is home to three beautiful countries – Scotland, Wales and England.
Great Britain can be an overwhelming place to travel to for first-time explorers as it is vast and there’s a lot to experience and see. Fret not! Here’s a 7-day travel itinerary to get you started.
For your 7-day trip to Britain, add London, Bath, the Cotswolds and York to your travel itinerary. Consider spending the first 3 days in Bath and the Cotswolds, 2 days in London, and 2 days in York.
Things to see in Bath – Situated in the southwest of England, Bath is famous for its Georgian architecture, museums, historical attractions, and hot springs. Do visit the Roman Baths, Jane Austen Centre, Thermae Bath Spa, Holburne Museum, and Royal Victoria Park.
