Travel to Europe and the Rest of the UK - Europe Travel

Piccadilly Circus, LondonWorking in the UK and Travelling Around Europe

One major drawer card for working holiday makers in the UK is the cost and time it takes to visit new countries.

Many people either come over and backpack around mainland Europe as soon as they land or temp for a few months and travel on the British pounds they have earned.

Either way traveling is definitely a major part of the whole UK working holiday experience.
