UK

Welcome to the United Kingdom, comprised of four separate nations under one flag: England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Home to roughly 65 million people, the UK is a constitutional monarchy with most real power based at Parliament in Westminster, while the head of state is currently Queen Elizabeth II based at Buckingham Palace. The capital of the UK and England is London, one of two global “alpha” cities in the world (along with New York). Two millennia old, it is a world cultural center and is a leading city in the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism, transport, and more. You’ll ride the London Underground (the Tube), walk the River Thames, visit the ancient Tower of London, explore beautiful Covent Garden, learn at Parliament, and so much more.

  • I just wanted to thank you again for all your help and support during our China program! I really appreciate the effort to coordinate a trip that immersed us in the local Yunnan culture and go above and beyond a typical tourist trip. I very much enjoyed the language exchanges and I am so glad we were able to participate. The leaders knowledge of Chinese culture and fluency in the language helped us all adjust to life much more smoothly after arriving in China. In addition, I want to thank everyone at Walking Tree for making this trip possible I hope you guys adjusted back to home life and enjoy the rest of the summer!
