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.

  • My daughter came home from school one day saying she wanted to go to Costa Rica after a presentation from Walking Tree. Seeing and feeling her excitement and motivation we got everything together for her to go. I am so thankful that we did that. She came home overflowing with stories of how wonderful it was. She was fearful and nervous going in but coming home, a completely different person. She was able to use the Spanish she has been learning for 10 years and cemented her love for the language. She absolutely loved her host family, from her little sister, to mom and Grandma and Grandpa. Going back home after her day of work was one of her favorite things. The confidence gained in the service work was amazing. She did things she never thought she would be able to do. The group grew to be great friends. Hope she has this opportunity again.
