Whatever you’re looking for from a vacation, the United Kingdom may be the perfect place to take a break thanks to its diverse range of landscapes, cities and activities which suit any budget. You’ll find wild terrains to explore up north in Scotland and out west in Ireland, cosmopolitan and cultural cities such as London, Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh, and incredible beaches dotted along Great Britain’s coastlines — some of which may even be bathed in sun, if you’re lucky! 

If you’re considering taking a trip to England, Ireland, Scotland or Wales, here’s what you’ll need to know to start planning. 

The best of the cities 
Steeped in history and heritage, the UK’s cities are wonderful locations for exploring local culture and admiring a variety of different architecture approaches. If you’re interested in period building aesthetics, then you’d be hard pushed to find more pleasing cities than London, Bath, and Glasgow, where some of the city streets are near-perfect relics of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian styles. 

If you like to indulge on vacation, it’s easy to find high-grade hotels and apartments in any UK cities. Many of which will come with spa facilities, hosted in enviable ZIP codes. While London may have always taken the lead on luxurious settings, these days Manchester and Liverpool also cater very well for those looking to treat themselves. Plus, the retail therapy is second to none! 

With train connections so quick and easy, you may we well take in a couple of UK cities on your trip. Traveling from London to Brighton gives you a taste of the capital as well as a more eclectic, coastal city experience too. 

At night, British cities come to life with exciting restaurants, innovative bars and a huge range of cultural experiences, including the world-famous theatre scene in London’s West End. When planning, look for London cheap theatre tickets, to secure an amazing night at an affordable price. 

Low-cost culture 
Culture vultures may rejoice when visiting the UK, as it’s one of the few countries which continues to have free entry to most of its major museums and art galleries. 

When you’ve decided upon your location of choice, research which of the city’s top attractions are ticketed and which are free, so you can balance your budget most effectively. It’s true that visiting the UK can be pricey, but if you plan ahead it’ll be much less so. 

A walk on the wild side 
Undoubtedly, there’s much more to the UK than its famous cities, and you’ll find some of the most breathtaking panoramic landscapes across these lands. 

From the Outer Hebrides in Scotland, all the way down to Land’s End in Cornwall, there are countless walks and hiking routes to keep adventurers busy for years. While the British weather can sometimes be unruly and hard to predict, if you pack well for wet and windy conditions, you should able to proceed unaffected by any drizzly weather. 

Highlights must also include the Lake District, the Peak District and North Norfolk, which are all Areas of Outstanding National Beauty. Search the National Trust website for detailed information about the specific area of the UK you’d like to explore.
