What’s more, we have some stunning natural beauty to enjoy, including over 19,000 miles of coastline and 15 National Parks covering 8,750 square miles.

Whatever you enjoy in a holiday, you can find it right here at home. In this guide we pick out some of the highlights to help make your break the best holiday ever!
