Also consider these personal tips from AuPairWorld's two UK experts:
Becky, our intern from England, says, “Many renowned people are associated with the south of England, including Sir Francis Drake and William, Prince of Orange but one lady is in a class of her own. The south of England was home to Agatha Christie, the author of Murder on the Orient Express. You should visit her mansion at Greenway in Devon. Just by walking around the beautiful gardens, you'll soon see where the inspiration for her crime novels came from and why the gardener from back then received so many awards!"
Our colleague Sophia lived in Great Britain for many years and has ideas on some bizarre things you can do. She says, “Some things in Britain really are unique. There is a cheese rolling race every year in Gloucestershire (yes, you read correctly). It has been known for foreigners to win before so maybe you could take part. But, be careful not to roll down the hill as well! If you go to Scotland and happen to fall in love up there in the hills, you can get married quickly and easily at Gretna Green. But be sure not to do it before your au pair adventure is over - you have to remain unmarried throughout your stay, remember!"
AuPairWorld hopes you have a great time in the land of great adventures!
