London and other cities
As one of the world’s major cities, London has so many cultural attractions: London Bridge, the River Thames, Parliament, cathedrals, and museums. One of them is the London Eye, an observation wheel that provides a view of the city. Tourists can spend endless days exploring the city and sightseeing—one iconic site to visit while in the London area is Shakespeare’s theatre. Although the original structure burned, the rebuilt theatre is an exact duplication. There are half-hour guided tours with sixteenth-century stories about the original site. Another point of interest is the ancient city of Gloucester, located on the east coast, where there are Roman ruins and the Romanesque and Gothic Gloucester Cathedral that holds the tomb of King Edward II. There is also a National Waterways Museum there. Peak District has the oldest national park. Yorkshire Dales and New Forest are also lovely parks.
Its cliffs are sculpted from the waves and wind, along with its gorgeous golden beaches, making Wales lovely.

Porpoises are on Ramsay and are fantastic to add to your trip if you have additional time in the area.

Straddling the Highland Boundary Fault is the Trossachs National Park, divided into lowland and highland. These popular regions differ in soil types and topography, varying from rocky land to green fields and mountains.
