Washington D.C

Washington DC is the captivating capital city of the US, and offers a range of world-famous attractions to enjoy. Take a glimpse of the White House before walking to the nearby Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and Capitol Building, revelling in the grandeur of the USA’s rich political and military history. Another unmissable stop on any Washington DC itinerary is the Smithsonian, one of the world’s leading museums, which covers a variety of specialties across a number of different sites.

However, whilst Washington DC is famous for its politics, architecture and history, the cosmopolitan city also offers a plethora of other delights away from the National Mall. From the trendy Penn Quarter to the 24-hour vibe of the Adams Morgan area and the verdant space of Woodley Park, Washington DC has plenty of interesting neighbourhoods to explore. A walkable city with world class shopping, Washington DC also has a number of spas in which to pamper yourself after a day of sightseeing.
