Great Britain
Great Britain: Discover a country of great contrasts! If you are a fan of big cities, you shouldn't miss London, the capital city. It's one of the most vibrant cities not only in Great Britain, but in the world. It's full of history, art and heritage. Castles and historic houses on the one hand and modern architecture, top-class restaurants and designer fashion stores on the other. If you are visiting Great Britain and are based in London, we highly recommend some day trips to the city Bath, Stonehenge and Windsor Castle. Great Britain also offers popular seaside cities like Brighton at the coastline.

The Soho Hotel
Don't panic: The huge cat at the entrance won't hurt you. Made of bronze and by Fernando Botero, it won't even play with you, so don't allow yourself to be intimidated, just continue to the reception. It pays off to check in here: The luxury boutique hotel is the first of its kind in Soho. While the neighbourhood is not that great - surrounded by bleak blocks of flats, the windows of your room facing them - the guests come anyway. Soho is Soho, after all, and it is chic. And it doesn't matter at all that the hotel once used to be a multi-level parking garage. But you won't notice that on the inside which boasts friendly very British interior, a kind of modern cottage style. While there's an open fireplace, there's modern art as well. While there are striped wallpapers, there are bathrooms of granite as well. While there is tea at the salon, you won't find creaking stairs. And even hard-core history fans have to admit: There's something about having a gym at the hotel. And having a cinema of your own at that will take the cake. You don't need to step outside at all anymore. Double room from 290 Euros per night.

Fish Club
The Fish Club catapults fish & chips into the new millennium, transforming any fat into valuable Omega 3: The restaurant is no fish in troubled waters but the culinary catch of the day. Fresh sea fish is served to guests daily. The small restaurant with rustic wooden benches has haddock, Dorade Royal and calamari on its menu (or in the aquarium and in between displayed on ice - so you can follow the food chain quite easily). The before/after picture is similar, however, once the fish is on your plate it comes with chilli sauce or garlic or hides beneath a cake. You should definitely not miss out on Fish Pie. And if fish and cake is not your thing anyway, try fish and chips instead - the classic for fast food fans, but much fresher here than elsewhere. The chips taste better, too, the bread has a lovely smell, and the dish of the day is cheaper. A word to fish bones: If you are scared of the ricochet in your windpipe, have something else instead, for instance Chorizo Kebab.  Because it's not only a matter of fish bones at the Fish Club, after all.

Themse
A cold period, a lot of dirt and a Giant Ferris Wheel: the Thames has seen a lot. In the 17th century the Thames was frozen most of the time and people went ice-curling and sledging on it. With the onset of the thaw period the focus shifted onto coal: The 18th century marked the era of trade ships, providing the Empire with coal and wealth. But doom was inevitable: The biggest maritime disaster in English history happened here as well, when a pleasure boat collided with a cargo ship and 640 people died. The river was in a bad shape back then: Due to misrouted sewage even the Parliament hat to move out because Westminster - and the whole town - was reeking. Today, when sewers and filter systems get rid of the dirt, the Thames is one of the cleanest rivers once again. And probably the whale that got lost in it in 2006 thought the same - even if he didn't find the way back to the sea again anyway. You see: A walk along the Thames is worthwhile. It's not just any river but one that defied the cold, the dirt and an inconvincible whale. And the buildings on its banks - Big Ben, the Palace of Westminster or London Eye - are quite nice as well.
