    London

    UK
    4.5
    1921 reviews

    London has some of the most friendliest people in the world. :) The food is good and their fish and chips hit the spot! The £ can be quite expensive though, depending on what you're converting from. The sights in London are beautiful and it's easy to get around if you use their underground subway system/buses above ground. There are ...

    Edinburgh

    UK
    4.5
    234 reviews

    Edinburgh is a beautiful city with no shortage of things to do. It's always lively and always interesting with a mixture of history, art and the huge student population gives it a thriving bar scene. The only downside is probably the weather, but come prepared and you'll never be bored.

    Gibraltar

    UK
    4
    56 reviews

    Gibraltar is a bit of an anomaly. It's like someone cut off a corner of grumpy old England and plopped it down right between Spain and Morocco. You actually need your passport to get into this far flung corner of the UK and you need to take heed of the local pub flies that don't take too kindly to strangers, ...

    Coniston

    UK

    4 reviews

    This is an excellent place to go for camping and outdoors activities. Beautiful scenery! While I was there with my cousin and grandfather we did a lot of biking and kayaking. Had a great time. If you like hiking then the Old Man of Coniston is a must.

    Snowdonia National Park

    UK
    4.5
    6 reviews

    Absolutely stunning scenery. Green Welsh mountains under grey skies are my happy place. There are hiking paths to suit just about any fitness level, but as one of the wettest areas in Britain, be sure to bring a poncho. It's also worth meandering through towns within the park -- these are some of the most traditional in the country and ...

    Brighton and Hove

    UK
    4.5
    4 reviews

    If Santa Monica Beach and San Francisco had an English baby this would be it. Brighton and Hove are two neighboring towns, on the south coast of Britain, collectively known as "London by the Sea". That's because it is where Londoners go for long weekends in the summer. And considering it is only an hour's train ride away (for as ...

    Brecon Beacons National Park

    UK
    4
    3 reviews

    You can hike, camp, bike, and stroll here. The lush green hills are still used everyday & sheep graze here. It's very much a working park.

    Aberdeen

    UK

    10 reviews

    I think Aberdeen is the most impressive of the Scottish cities with the granite buildings and stone streets. Beautiful and strangely haunting and well worth a day or two.

    Pitlochry

    4.5
    4 reviews

    Pitlochry is a buzzing little Scottish Town just of the main trunk road heading to the north of Scotland. It has been a tourist destination for many years and has a great range of accommodation and places to eat as well as a well respected theatre. It is the start point of a large 5000 people cycle race every year ...

    Mansfield

    UK
    5
    1 review

    Mansfield is tiny but cute, with the main attraction of Sherwood Forest. The people are great, although I got the sense that some hasn't set foot outside Mansfield in a while, if ever. We could barely get directions to the next town!

    Land's End

    UK
    4.5
    8 reviews

    Sure, it's kitschy in places, but not to be missed. Beautiful scenery and lovely coastal walks. Be careful with the weather though as it can get quite fierce.

    Oxford

    UK
    4.5
    47 reviews

    For those of us in Cambridge, it will always be 'the other place,' but what a nice place it is. Stunning ancient university town with probably superior architecture. You can spend an afternoon or a decade there and still be delighted.

    Oban

    UK
    4.5
    12 reviews

    Gorgeous coastal Scottish city which is also a ferry terminus to Mull and other ports of call in the Hebrides. Highland Scotland at its best, especially in the spring.

    4.5
    25 reviews

    Home to Windsor castle, Eton College, and a very scenic town. Accessible by train through Reading and Slough. Great day out with family and the castle is stunning. Be sure to allow a day.

    Henley-on-Thames

    UK
    4
    3 reviews

    This idyllic town in Oxfordshire is the site of the Henley Royal Regatta. There's an ancient downtown with a good sprinkling of hotels, pubs and restaurants. Best during the regatta but would be fun any time of year.
