The UK is a historically rich country with many beautiful towns, cities and landscapes to explore.
Although it was hard to choose, we have tried to select a diverse selection of our top places in this unique & beautiful part of the world.
For those attending a Reach Cambridge program, you have the chance of visiting some of these places during your time with us.
On that note, we wanted to start by acknowledging our own favourite place to visit - the historic & culturally significant University City of Cambridge! This is definitely our favourite destination due to many different reasons, including, its history, international community and the safe and positive vibe that it brings!
But apart from Cambridge, there are a bunch of equally worthy spots we believe everyone should see. Here they are:
A town synonymous with William Shakespeare, his birthplace here still contains the house in which he was born in 1564, and is open to visitors today. This lovely town, split by the River Avon, has many circular walks allowing you to pass over the river or sit under a tree where the poet himself may have sat creating his renowned works a few hundred years ago. This inspiring location houses the Royal Shakespeare theatre, in which live Shakespeare plays are performed to this day. The local architecture has a number of timber-framed Tudor Houses, including Shakespeare’s old school house and the famous Anne Hathaway tearooms, serving yummy traditional scones, jam and clotted cream!
