UK As A Travel Destination?
 
# 1 : Wednesday 16-8-2017 @ 13:04
 
 
With UK sterling at 91p to the euro and expecting to climb further, Britain is looking far more appealing as a holiday/city break destination than it did in the past few years. I rarely ever consider travel to Britain but will keep my eyes open if i see a shit cheap flight. Do you go to Britain much? Will you consider the UK as a city break destination because of sterling? Any smaller cities/hidden gems worth considering

Used to visit regularly for a meet up with Flame On and others for a Soho session, more recently stayed with a friend. The walk along the South Bank from the Parliament is full of interesting sights, beautiful at dusk.

Its countryside and smaller cities can be very nice for a quite holiday, and its bigger cities are vibrant enough for a long week-end packed with energy. And the lower sterling is definitely a plus, but I think prices were already quite attractive.
Though I would argue there is not many holiday needs that would not be similarly served by staycationing...

Living in Bournemouth. Lots of nice places near and on the south coast to spend a day in and move on. Winchester and Salisbury to the beach at Bournemouth through Dorchester to westbay (broad church). Close to Portsmouth with good naval museum and outlets if that's your style. Lots of really nice towns and villages near Bomo, Southampton and Portsmouth to day trip to and great scenery in the new forest and the Jurassic Coast.

Yeah agreed. There is a lot of quite nice places in that area. I have cousins in Southampton so would visit often.

There are lots of interesting places to visit in the U.K. For city life, obviously London wins hands down - there is such a vibrant energy about the place and it has an unrivalled amount of cultural attractions - such as the art galleries, the West end, the museums. Manchester is interesting too - I wouldn't rate Birmingham much though. York, Oxford, Cambridge and Bristol are all lovely and historic. Bath is a gem.

For scenery there's The Scottish Highlands and Islands, North Wales and the Lake District, Cornwall and the Cotswolds. East Anglia, a part of England tourists rarely venture to, is very nice - boating the Norfolk Broads for instance.

I plan to do a mini tour of stately homes in England with a friend later in the year. We will probably use Oxford as a base.

The U.K. cities I'd like to visit are Cardiff, Newcastle, Oxford, Inverness and Liverpool. I'd love to see the Orkney islands but can't see that happening. A road trip around Wales would be pretty cool as well.

London Edinburgh bath and Oxford are all worth a visit and Norwich with its very flat countryside is very similar to flat holland Germany

I would definitely recommend North Wales for the scenery and fantastic mountain hiking trails.

Back in the day I did the Snowdon, Cader Idris, the Tryffin... All incredible!
