UK visa – Dover
By the sea – Dover

The white cliffs of Dover are famous for their stunning beauty. They are one of the most iconic British sights you will see in a location that has much more to offer than spectacular coastal sites.

Dover is also famous for its charming villages, as well excellent waves for the surfing enthusiasts among you. Make sure you try the local cuisine, too – the waterfront restaurants offer delicious, traditional British dishes, including plenty of fantastic fresh seafood.

TV lover – Northern Ireland

Much of the world's most popular TV series was filmed in Northern Ireland. That's right, Northern Irish locations were used for Game of Thrones. We are not guaranteeing that you will see dragons if you visit, but you will definitely see other aspects of the famous show that you recognise, such as lush sweeping hills and valleys; spectacular ancient castles, and eerily deep and dark forests.

The real Britain – Yorkshire

People say that nowhere is more British than Yorkshire. It is a county that has an atmosphere of its very own and a charming accent too. It's a great place to visit if you want to get a feeling of what real English people are like; down to earth and welcoming.

There's too much to see and enjoy to describe here, but highlights include York Minster of the City of York, one of the largest cathedrals in Europe; the spectacular vistas of the Peak District, Britain's first National Park; and Leeds, where among other things you can find more listed buildings than any other city outside of London.

Peace and Quiet – the highlands of Scotland

The highlands of Scotland offer a vast and varied landscape that is truly one of the world's most beautiful terrains – absolutely perfect if you want to get away from the hustle and the bustle of a large city and do some rugged exploring.

As a speaker of English as a second language, you might struggle with the local accent at first, but once you get past that, it won't be long before you feel totally at home. Scottish hospitality is famous the world over and for good reason too. Wherever you decide to go in Britain, you can be guaranteed a good time. The sun might not always be out from behind the clouds to welcome you, but the people certainly will.
