If you could travel anywhere in the UK where would you go to? Or is there somewhere you go back year after year?

I’ve seen London twice, but I would go back to see more of it.
I also liked a lot Winchester and Bath.

I’m much more of a proponent of small towns in England. Personally after going to London, seeing the sites, you find yourself trying to seek out more tourist sites.

Try doing some of the customs, go to kiss the Blarney Stone, go to Dingle and have a pint. Check out some of the old IRA/Orangemen sites in Northern Ireland, go to Loch Lamond, see Hadrians Wall.

The problem is people tend to find the large cities behaviours indicative of the entire country. If you have a drink in Doolin, people will sit down with you, knowing you’re an “outsider” and genuinely care/see to it that you enjoy your stay where as in London, you’re just another bloody tourist.

London is cool, but there is sooo much more to see!
Cornwall – Surfing (Newquay), Archaeology (all over), Countryside (Tintagel castle is cool)
Wiltshire – the stereotypical image of England, also the home of Stonehenge.
If you can head north check out the Peak district and villages of Derbyshire.
A little further will take you to York and Durham, both beautiful cities with lots of Roman and Medieval history.
If you like cities better Manchester and Liverpool can be good – but not pretty.
Then theres Scotland…

The city near where I live in the UK, Norwich, is a very fine city indeed and definitely one of the more underated places in the country. It has a beautiful Old Town, great shopping centres and one of the most impressive cathedrals in the country. Definitely worth a visit if you visit the UK – it’s only an hour and a half from London.

I loved all of Scotland, but especially the northwest coast. I’d certainly go back there if I could.
But I never get tired of London.
