England has several cities that any tourist from all over the world can get to enjoy. Though a little bit expensive, a tour to the cities of England will be worth the price. The top cities to visit include; the seductively modern London, Blackpool the home of tacky English tat (not exactly a deserving reputation), and Manchester city the home of champion football club Manchester united. Liverpool is the city that bought you The Beatle and York one of the most breathtakingly beautiful cities in Britain. Ireland is another destination with lots of things to do in Dublin. Amongst its treasures includes going to the Guinness storehouse.
London is a typical British city complete with its multinational cultural diversity. This city hosts most of Britain’s symbolic sites. Some of them are the elaborate Buckingham Palace which you can only view from a distance, the sunset silhouettes of London Bridge, the Houses of Parliament and a skyline impression of the whole city from above the rotating big wheel that is the London Eye. The best attractions are the London museums. London’s top museums include the Science Museum and the National History Museum. Fortunately, if you are planning to tour London, you can obtain a London pass. The smart card like pass gives you free access to over 60 London attractions.
Blackpool city draws an incredible 6 million visitors a year, most of them attracted by the variety of arcades, shows, drinking culture and a few days basking on the sands. It is not exactly a classy destination, but Blackpool is a working class side of Britain that still attracts mainly domestic tourists, and is worth a trip. An individual visiting Blackpool with an open mind will definitely have quality time. Gambling is another major pastime here. Blackpool is scarcely Vegas, but if you feel like gaming away your earnings in a backstreet casino, you will find yourself well taken care of.
Manchester city is reputed for its football team Manchester united. Aside from that, cricket fans can enjoy a game at the old Trafford. Manchester’s second best activity is its music and culture. Most British cities have a rich cultural scene with prestigious theaters like The Palace, The Opera House, The Lowry and The Royal Exchange. It also hosts the world class music venues, such as the Bridgewater Hall which is the home to the BBC Philharmonic, Manchester Camerata and Hallé Orchestras.
Liverpool city has undergone a lot of changes within the last few years especially on the area around the famous and newly revamped waterfront area. The ‘Echo Arena’ is a new concert venue and many new outstanding hotels and luxury apartment buildings blend a new skyline with the old familiar architecture. Liverpool is also known for its vibrant nightlife. It is particularly crowded with dive bars and the kind of rampaging clubs that will seem weird through the haze that is the next morning.
This city boasts of magnificent architectural creations and stands as a delightful reminder of the medieval way of life. York city has a wide variety of cultural festivals every year that have earned the city the nickname “City of Festivals”, and amid its museums, architecture, and the entire range of 13th century walls surrounding the magnificent York Minster cathedral this city is the best places to go in Britain for an old-fashioned explosion of culture and history.
