The UK and its surrounds are a fantastic way to spend your vacation. You can have a beautiful time and be on a tight budget, just read below!
1. Take a London walk
Afraid of London because of its high price tag? Nothing will stand in the way of you and all of the attractions, I promise. Many museums and galleries are free of charge. If you’re not that into art, just buy a map and start walking. Piccadilly Circus, the Buckingham palace, Westminster Abbey, the Parliament house, the Big Ben and Trafalgar Square don’t cost a thing to admire and photograph.
2. London’s parks
Tired of walking? Stop by in one of London’s many parks. It is a custom for tourists to stop, have a bite to eat or even take a nap on the grass.
3. The Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland
These mountains are very popular attractions for hikers. There are more than 900 routes of all grades, so if you’re a beginner or a pro, the Mourne Mountains have something for everyone.
4. See the Liverpool port
Are you a Beatles fan? Then be sure to drop by the birthplace of this iconic band. You can visit the Beatles museum and take a guided tour bus through the city. Yes, Strawberry Field is on the list!
5. The Tate Museum
Interested in art? Then the Tate Museum will satisfy even the hungriest of souls. See the famous Lobster Telephone by Dali or countless other modern installations.
6. Travel to Scotland
If you’re under 26 then it is a bargain to travel by train, if not, consider it an investment. If you take the train from Edinburgh to Fort William, that is a vacation in itself. It is said to be the most beautiful train ride in Europe. At one point the clouds are so low that the train literally runs among the clouds. Make a list: Scotland travel, and write down your points of interest. It will be of great help.
7. Don’t be afraid of the Loch Ness Monster
Just a short ride from Inverness, there is the Loch Ness and the Urquhart castle. You can spend your whole day trying to spot Nessie. I don’t know if you’re going to see her, but the lake is so beautiful, that you won’t feel like you’ve wasted your time.
Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland and one of the most interesting cities in Europe. The Castle offers free guided tours and it is by far the best way to spend a couple of hours in Edinburgh.
9. Tour Dartmoor
South Devon, England – offers one of the best landscapes in England. If you’re lucky, a Dartmoor tour though the moorland will offer you a sight of the rare horse breed, the Exmoor Pony. Make a wish if you see one!
10. Enjoy the beaches of Cornwall
Spacious and easily accessible, Cornwall beaches are the best family vacationing spot by the Celtic sea. Porthminster Beach is close to the bus and train station, thus providing easy access for you and your loved ones. Keep in mind that there are no dogs allowed on this beach. No matter what you come here for, a Cornwall beach will offer you peace and relaxation.
