There is no better way to spend your summer break than to travel to the United Kingdom. This wonderful location is rich with culture, things to do, famous landmarks and great nightlife! Although known for its rain, the skies are often clear on summer days and beautiful and crisp on summer evenings! This is one region that definitely has something for everyone and that one should not go a lifetime without seeing!

When visiting London on your UK summer break, one has to check out Little Venice. This area will take you out of London and transport you to the romance of the real Venice, Italy! Take a boat ride along the beautiful Regent Canal with someone you love or take a romantic tour that can be taken through a professional guide or take it as a leisurely self-guided tour. You will not only be able to look out over all of London but you will also have the once-in-a-lifetime experience of sipping espresso and munching on biscotti in some of the finest cafes in the world!

During your summer holidays, you can also spend the day touring some of London's most famous sites. Take a trip to Buckingham Palace and see how life can be lived only by royalty. While you're checking out the favorite places of the Royal Family, be sure to stop by Kensington Palace as well. This was the home of Princess Diana for sixteen years and was also where Queen Victoria was born!

If you want more of a spooky summer break, you can also check out London Tower where criminals were sent and often executed. Read about the hauntings that take place here and get chilled right to your bone! If that isn't enough, you can also visit another site that is going to terrify you. A completely different kind of museum, the London Dungeon will have you locked up while the most violent and cruel criminals of the past all reach out to you. This is a great trip for those just out of high school or college and looking for a frightfully wonderful time during their UK summer break.

If you're looking for more of a traditional summer break, be sure to check out Westminster Abbey. Home of the Shrine, which contains the tomb of Saint Edward, the Confessor, this wonderful perish can be explored either on your own or with a guide that knows every nook and cranny of the Abbey. Also be sure to check out the Tower Bridge. Although used as a means of transportation, it is more of a tourist attraction than anything. Walk over the bridge and view one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

If you really want to use your summer break for partying, the UK has some of the greatest nightlife in the world! Visit places such as 333, Fabric, The End, and Turnmills if you are in the mood to do some serious dancing or simply take it easy and enjoy a pint in any one of the many fine pubs in London. Some of the best are Sir Richard Steele, The Effra, and The Hollybush. This is a wonderful way to cap off every night on your UK Summer Break.
