Welcome! This is my guide on fun things to and see when you visit Britain. There are some great official sites to visit and the links are listed on the right of this page. This is my own Britain travel guide which I hope you find useful. I will include some of my top tips on place's to visit, money saving tips and things to be aware of.

I was born in London and lived in England until just a few years ago. I now go back home and introduce my family and friends on what is a must see and must do and thought it would be good to share these ideas with more people. I am also a Visit Britain certified Brit Agent.

To help you explore the country better I have list some tabs at the top of the page to explore and give you video glimpses of different areas of Britain. The page you are on at the moment outlines London. I lived in London for many years and most people, when the first come to Britain, come to London first and so here is a great look at London.

I have attached some cools links, videos and website information to help you along your jolly old way. Have fun!


One of the best magazines that covers events, attractions, and historic information on Britain is Britain Magazine. This monthly magazine is a real interesting read, with beautiful illustrations, and if you think you know Britain give the magazine a read and I am sure you will be delighted in the information covered. There is also some great competitions and offers for readers. The monthly magazine is the only magazine with links to the Official Visit Britain tourism board. There is also a good website the has other links to check out.


The National Trust and The Royal Oak Foundation
For more than 100 years the National Trust has been taking care of some of the most beautiful places in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. These include some of Britain's most important historic houses, beautiful gardens, and magnificent stretches of countryside and coastline.

If you are like me and more than 40,000 Americans belong to the Royal Oak Foundation, the National Trust's US membership affiliate.A not-for-profit organisation, the Royal Oak helps the Trust through the generous tax-deductible support of members and friends by making grants towards its work.

Royal Oak member benefits include:
Free admission to properties of the National Trust and National Trust for Scotland
