7 places to stop on a UK Tour


 

With a total of 69 cities, the United Kingdom is a mega travel destination. It’s quite difficult to choose which of this vast number of cities to visit to get the best out of a UK tour. Here are 7 top places to stop on a UK tour:

London

It is impossible to think about a tour of UK without visiting London. Standing on the river Thames, nearly 2000 year old city of London is a noisy, vibrant and multicultural city with an area of 1.12 square miles. At every corner of this great city, you can expect to have many unique experiences of lifetime. London is a powerful representative of European culture, fashion and many more. It has unlimited number of world class tourist attractions including the British Museum, the Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, the Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, the Tower Bridge of London, the Big Ben, Madame Tussauds, and the St. Paul’s Cathedral. There are more than 200 museums in London. With limitless number of things to see and do in every part of London, you can’t afford to miss out staying in London at least for a few days in your UK tour. A great way to see the sights would be to take a private escorted tour of London with your own driver. This not only means you can see all the attractions you want to, but also removes the need to plan public transport routes around the capital.

Edinburgh

Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is surely among a must stop in a UK tour. From the sweeping sophistication of Georgian New Town to the history-soaked medieval wynds, vennels and tenements of old town, the city of Edinburgh is one of the most compelling and beautiful cities in the world. The combination of natural settings and wonderful castles mean Edinburgh should in no way be missed in a complete UK tour.

Most of the museums in Liverpool are completely free to enter. Liverpool’s waterfront is a designated UNESCO world heritage site. Overall, Liverpool has some really unique experiences on offer for its travelers.

Chester

Standing on the river Dee, Chester, another medieval cathedral city, is renowned for its zoo, roman walls and shopping. There are many things to do in and around Chester to keep the whole family happy. The architectural beauty of Chester is something that worth all your time and money.

Cambridge

The King’s Chapel located along the Cam river is regarded a fine example of perpendicular Gothic architecture and is the most visited attraction in Cambridge.

The Cotswolds

Located just west of London, the Cotsworlds is the largest area with marvelous natural beauty in the whole of England and Wales. The Cotswold Hills, also known as Cotswold Edge, is located above the Evesham Vale and Severn Valley.
