Private jet charter to the United Kingdom
The United Kingdom is made up of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and each has its own character, as well as its own iconic cities and landmarks. A relatively small country, you can easily see a good portion of it in a couple of weeks if you charter a private jet to the UK.
London is probably the most iconic city in England, if not the UK, and for good reason. It is home to historic sites such as the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament as well as attractions such as the London Eye. There are also plenty of sports arenas, many art galleries and museums. Shoppers should head to areas such as Oxford Street, Regent Street, Bond Street and Carnaby Street, whilst those looking for music will find a plethora of venues around areas such as Camden. There’s also plenty of choice when it comes to food and lots of parks such as the renowned Hyde Park. But there is more to England than London. There are great cities such as Manchester and Liverpool further north, offering a whole new take on British culture with accents to match. There are also historic cities such Bath and York, landmarks such as Stonehenge, Hadrian’s Wall and the Giant’s Causeway and landscapes like the stunning Lake District, Yorkshire Moors and the beautiful coastlines of Devon and Cornwall. You can charter a private jet to England with Air Charter Service.
Scotland sits above England and whilst technically a part of the United Kingdom, it feels like you’re in a completely different country. Not only is the accent vastly different from those found across the UK, especially when compared to those in the South East, but the landscapes are far more rugged, with mountainous terrain and nearly 800 outlying islands. Historic cities include Edinburgh and Glasgow with the former home to a famous castle of the same name. You’ll also find plenty of Scottish pride and events such as Hogmanay, the Edinburgh Film Festival, T in the Park and Burns Night. The Scottish are proud of their whisky, and you’ll find plenty of distilleries to choose from. They are also proud of their food, with local favourites such as Cullen Skink, haggis and Scotch beef all featuring extensively on menus and offering a real taste of local cuisine. Scotland is also toted as the birthplace of the deep fried Mars bar, and many chippies will be happy to serve you one along with your traditional fish and chips. Why not charter a private jet to Scotland with Air Charter Service to really get to the heart of this beautiful area.
On the west of the UK you’ll find Wales, a place of rolling hills, deep valleys and plenty of history. The Welsh are proud of their heritage, and all signs offer both the English and Welsh names of towns. Welsh is also taught in all schools and you’ll often find locals talking to each other in their own language. The south east of Wales is the most urbanised, with the capital, Cardiff, and also Swansea found here. Cardiff has strong sporting and cultural aspects, with the Millennium Stadium in the city centre hosting plenty of football and rugby matches. Also in the city you’ll find plenty of beautiful architecture and some wonderful new developments such as the Cardiff Bay area and the St David’s shopping centre. Wales is also famed for its lamb, with a roast lamb dinner a must on any visit. You should also try some traditional laverbread and bara brith. If you’re a fan of the outdoors, Wales is home to both the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia, the former a beautiful national park, and the latter the largest mountain in Wales. You can easily charter a private jet to Wales with Air Charter Service to make the most of your time here.
Unlike the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland chose to remain a part of the UK and is famed for its stunning landscapes and scenery. Belfast is its most populous city and the second largest city in Ireland. Set at the mouth of the River Lagan on Belfast Lough within County Antrim, Belfast itself is in a state of constant evolution, with bars, restaurants, shops and hotels popping up throughout the city. With a collection of Edwardian and Victorian architecture, you can wander the streets with a camera and find plenty to snap away at. Less visited than Dublin in the Republic of Ireland, Glasgow offers a quieter, yet equally beautiful glimpse into the past with plenty of signs of what’s to come in the future. Also in Country Antrim is the North Coast, home to the iconic Giant’s Causeway, a must on any visit. Northern Ireland is also home to the County Armagh, County Derry, County Down, County Fermanagh and County Tyrone all of which offering outstanding landscapes. County Derry is also home to the city of Londonderry which is very popular, whilst County Down has the pretty university town of Bangor. Charter a private jet with Air Charter Service to Northern Ireland to make the most of the views from above, as well as from on the ground.
The UK in its entirety encompasses all of the above, plus much, much more. Book a private jet with Air Charter Service to the UK, and fly between each country ensuring you spend more of your precious time discovering what the UK has to offer.
