Why we love the UK and the East Midlands

Visiting the UK is a wonderful experience, whether you visit the bustling capital London or head straight to the good old British countryside.

London itself is one of the world’s major cities, one of the largest in Europe and the second most visited city on the planet after Bangkok in Thailand, with 20 million people visiting every year.

You could spend two weeks in England’s capital and still have plenty more to see after visiting such delightful places as Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Hyde Park, The British Museum, Big Ben and Parliament, Westminster Abbey, The London Eye, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square, St Paul’s Cathedral, Kew Gardens, Soho and Covent Garden.

Elsewhere in the UK the Lake District in the north of England, the Cotswolds in the south, Cornwall on the south coast, the Scottish Highlands and the mountains of Wales are all beautiful places to spend a few days.

The East Midlands area around Donington Park also has its own special character, rich history, interesting towns and cities and stunning countryside.

This is the heart of England and is easy to reach from anywhere else in the UK, plus with its own airport just next to the circuit, travel could not be easier. The beautiful counties of Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire are on your doorstep from Donington, so why not go exploring?
