The United Kingdom's four distinct seasons each hold a unique appeal. However, since the UK spans ten degrees of latitude, there are considerable differences from north to south and—due to ocean influences—also between east and west. The region frequently defies its negative stereotypes, so don't let the English's complaints and the Scots' talk about "dreich" (dreary) weather put you off. Read on to find out more about the best time to visit England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
A week is long enough to experience not only the highlights of London but also the English countryside and Scottish Highlands. One option is a family tour that will take you and the clan to Buckingham Palace, on "Harry Potter" tours, and boat rides on Loch Ness. If you're jonesing for outdoor adventure, consider a weeklong hike in the wilds of Scotland's Cairngorms National Park, or hit the road on a trip through the incomparable Cotswolds region of southern England.
In 10 days, you can travel the length and breadth of England. Visit highlights like Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, plus iconic landmarks like Buckingham Palace, Windsor, and Edinburgh Castle.

Kate was wonderful. Having her a text or call away averted lots of averted frustration. The emergency number was appreciated, as well. I knew that no matter when it was, she knew I was traveling and was there to assist.
Have had great service from Greece, as well.
