Three cities to visit in the UK

There are many places throughout the United Kingdom that you can plan to visit on a trip to this beautifully diverse island. You’ve only got time to explore a handful of these places on your trip, though - so where do you go?

To get the most from your time in the country, it’s best you spend a few days in some of the cities dotted about the British Isles. These are just three of our favourites, so here’s what you can do and see in them.

Many people flying in to the UK will land at one of London’s international airports - so why not have a longer stop in the capital and find out more about it? There are too many things to do here in one visit, but there should be a few places at the top of your list that you must go to.

If you’ve only got a couple of days, then the main sites you’ll have to see include Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, the Tower of London, Borough Market - and they’re only some of the highlights! Don’t worry, as there are many parks to visit and relax in: the royal parks, in particular, prove popular.

Hyde Park is one of those and, with its great transport links, it could be an ideal spot for you to stay. Accommodation options such as Native give you the great services you expect from a hotel, but also with the advantages of self-catering apartments.

This city in the north-west of Manchester is famous for many things, but two of the most well-known of those are football and music. If you’re a fan of ‘the beautiful game’, then you can head for the National Football Museum - learn more about the England team’s world cup win and the history of the sport. If you’re a fan of a certain team, then you could also visit Old Trafford: home to Manchester United.

If sport isn’t your thing, then you can absorb Mancunian culture by visiting some of the other places of interest in the city. There’s HOME for theatre, cinema and art, Manchester Art Gallery, and the Northern Quarter for its creativity and independent outlets.

Going north of the border into Scotland is another must-see on your UK trip. You’ve probably heard of Edinburgh, but have you thought about going to Glasgow too?

There’s plenty of beautiful architecture to see, which you can discover more of on the city centre mural trail. You can also find more work from the architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh, who was from Glasgow.

You can also enjoy some whisky in one of the many pubs and bars in the city - some of which may have traditional folk music performances taking place. Also, look to enjoy a tipple on a tour of the Tennent’s Brewery.

There are many more cities, towns, and quaint villages to seek out when visiting the UK. These are just some of the great places you can experience when you go to this fantastically diverse, historical, and interesting country.
