The Crown: United Kingdom
The United Kingdom is the crucible of empire and pioneer of parliamentary democracy, and is a greatly eccentric, extraordinary and downright intriguing country. It is full of astounding variety. In the cities, the streets buzz day and night, filled with tempting shops and restaurants, and some of the finest museums in the world. Then in just a short car ride you're deep in the English countryside or enjoying a classic seaside resort.
Be sure not to miss visiting Buckingham Palace in London, the centerpiece of the reigning monarch of the UK, with one of the most famous balconies in the world. On the other end of the spectrum there you can explore the ancient landscape of Stonehenge, one of the wonders of the world and the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe.
