Sometimes while we are planning getaways to exotic locations and European city’s it’s easy to forget the beautiful places we have right here in the UK. My recent trip to Edinburgh has sparked my desire to get out and visit some of what we Brit’s have to offer, so here’s a little list of must visit places in the UK that I want to see as soon as I can!

I have been to Liverpool only once, and it was a swinging visit to see a band in my teens, so I saw nothing of the city itself. I know embarrassingly little about the city but I know it has beautiful scenery and rich history so I think it would be right up my street. I am actually heading to Liverpool in a few months for a birthday party so I am going to try and stay an extra day and do some sightseeing.

Bath has been on my radar for a long while, I actually wanted to go there for mine and Harry’s anniversary a couple of years ago but it never happened. It’s an absolutely stunning, historic city with so much to see I think I could spend a whole week there! However from my research, it looks like it’s also an expensive one, so this one might require some saving!
Since writing this I have visited and loved Bath, check out my post on how to spend 8 hours in Bath.

This trip to Edinburgh was only my second ever visit to Scotland, and both times have been to Edinburgh. Glasgow isn’t a city I know a great deal about, but it seems like the next logical place in my Scotland adventuring!
Since writing this post I have visited and completely fallen in love with Glasgow, check out my posts on cheap eats in Glasgow, how to spend a weekend in Glasgow for under £95 (including train travel from London and Accommodation) and a post on just how friendly Glasgow really is.
I am ashamed to say that my history with Wales is as bad as it is with Scotland. I have been to Wales twice, and both were to Cardiff but I only got as far as the football ground, as both times it was for cup matches. The little I saw of the city has left me wanting to explore further.

This is a place I was hoping to get to this Summer then never got the chance to. It’s so close to London, especially by train, that it seems madness that I haven’t been yet, and everyone whose been says I’ll love it. it’s got an open-minded air and a quirky atmosphere that sounds like a dream to me. More than one person has told me I’ll want to move there once I visit!

Bristol is one of those places that always comes on the top of those ‘Best places to live in the UK’ lists and with its mixture of modern, trendy bars and beautiful docs it reminds me somewhat of Lincoln where I lived for years.
So that’s my quick run down, in reality of course there’s loads more. I really need to explore more of South England for instance, but I know so little about it being a Northerner. Got any recommendations for must visit places in the UK? let me know!
