Best Cities in the UK
The Best Cities in the UK to visit:
LONDON: Where can we start? With world-leading museums perhaps, or maybe the fantastic shopping to be had? How about the diverse cuisines on offer or the eclectic music scene? What about the copious green space and endless attractions? Ok, you get the point: London has it all – in spades. The highlights? The British Museum, Covent Garden, the London Eye, the Tower of London, the Shard…
GLASGOW: Glasgow is a vibrant city – once the second of the British Empire – and a melting pot of historic architecture and utterly contemporary culture. Stately Georgian buildings abound, as do hip bars and restaurants, and the ex-industrial heartland of the Clyde is today a revamped and rejuvenated area of real cultural clout.
LIVERPOOL: Liverpool has England’s largest collection of museum and galleries outside London, a vibrant music scene and superb shopping – and, of course, a football team or two. Take the famous ferry across the Mersey, explore the historic Albert Dock and its Tate Liverpool gallery, see the Liver Building and hit the Beatles trail around this rejuvenated ex-industrial powerhouse.
CARDIFF: From its historic castle to its cutting edge arts scene, the Welsh capital packs a weighty punch. Stand in the Norman keep of Cardiff Castle, take in a performance at the Millennium Centre or a match at the Principality Stadium. Cardiff makes a perfect weekend break in the UK because you won’t leave feeling short-changed – in fact, both the National Museum Cardiff and St Fagans National History Museum are free, along with several art galleries and even the Welsh Assembly building, with its sweeping contemporary architecture and views across the bay.
