Here at Great Little Breaks, we love what the UK has to offer, that's why we have breaks all over the country!
We are very lucky in Britain to have so much to explore, from the hustle and bustle of city-scapes, to the rolling hills of rural areas, so we want to share with you some of our favourite UK destinations.
Visit the Bodleian Library:
Located on Broad Street in the centre of Oxford, this stunning attraction is the oldest teaching an examination room in the University, and showcases the best of English gothic architecture. Oxford's libraries are some of the most celebrated in the world, and the Bodleian has a chief place among them. Not only does this library hold an incomparable collection of books and manuscripts, but it is often described as 'Europe's most beautiful room.'
Oxford Botanic Gardens:
Visit inspiring herbaceous borders, glasshouses that take you around the World or simply relax in the oldest Botanic Garden in Britain. Located right in the heart of the city centre, these gardens are home to the most diverse collection of plants in the world. If you're looking for a fascinating, yet relaxing, day out in Oxford as a couple or family, the Botanic Gardens should certainly be on your list.
Bicester Shopping Village:
You would never have guessed that this shopping haven was located in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. Enjoy a range of charming boutiques and the world's leading fashion brands with great savings all year round. Shop until you drop, take a stroll around the beautifully designed village, or sit back and relax with a drink at one of the many coffee shops around the site.
Home to the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Blenheim Palace is an awes-inspiring experience for visitors. This World Heritage site is a true masterpiece containing an exquisite collection of furniture and artwork, as well as stunning 18th Century Baroque architecture. The Palace sits within 2000 acres of parkland and formal gardens.
