Take a Trip “Across the Pond”: Epcot’s United Kingdom Pavilion

The culture and vibe of the United Kingdom is evident everywhere you turn. Architecture including Tudor, Georgian, and Victorian styles are on full display. Most notably the thatched roof cottage patterned after Anne Hathaway’s home (William Shakespeare’s wife, not The Princess Diaries). Beautiful gardens, soot stained chimneys,and of course the famous red telephone booths tie in perfectly to make you feel as if you were truly visiting the United Kingdom.

 

 

Entertainment

British Revolution will take you back to good old days of British rock and roll. Hear songs from popular bands such as The Who, Queen, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones. Make sure to check out your times guide as this is a don’t miss music experience. We recommend getting to the show area (by the gazebo) a little early as there a few benches that will be available so that you can sit and enjoy the show. Make the show even better by sipping on a Harp or Guiness that you grab from the Rose and Crown Pub.
