When telling people you are going on holiday and when they ask where and you reply to a location in England they always seem a little disappointed for you. Giving you the pitying look of, could you not afford to go abroad this year? But what most people don’t look for is those hidden gems and what you can do in the places you visit. Despite the lack of good weather, the UK has some pretty cool places to visit. As someone with anxiety, I do have a fear of the unknown a lot of the time, and it is hard enough to get me to explore somewhere new in the UK, let alone another country. I did say 2018 would be my year of travel, yet somehow I’ve only visited Manchester and that was three months ago. However, with Will and I’s anniversary coming up we’ve decided to take a trip somewhere, but are still clueless where to visit, so I took to Twitter to ask for some opinions on where to go, as well as doing some research and I decided to share my top 3 destinations of where I want to visit and hopefully make them all a reality by the end of the year!
I have previously visited Liverpool I have explored the shopping scene as Liverpool ONE has to be one of the best shopping experiences in the UK. After reading the extensive guide of things to do in Liverpool created by Liverpool ONE https://www.liverpool-one.com/visit-liverpool/ I knew where I wanted to eat and drink, as well as some of the shops and nightlife I needed to check out whilst in Liverpool.here is so much more I wanted to explore in previous trips and didn’t have the time to do so. When looking into hotels and things to do in Liverpool I found a number of museums, places to eat and plenty of shops to visit.
When tweeting about where to visit in the UK for cute cafes and things to do a lot of you (most of you) told me to go visit Nottingham, due to it not being too far to where we live, we decided to take a look into it. I was keen to find out more about the nightlife of Nottingham as this seems to be where it is going off. I found some cool bars such as the BoilerMaker after my experience in the Manchester Washhouse, I’d love to visit another secret bar as well as 400 rabbits (where the decor looks amazing!) and Happy Dough Lucky, sounds totally up my street as a huge pizza fiend.
As my uncle lives in Brighton I have visited several times and I am hoping to again this year after not visiting for a few years. Brighton has some of the cutest cafes around and the laines are so pretty and interesting to explore and I think I gained a stone just from looking into their bakeries. Brighton also has a lovely peer where you can grab a fish and chips or go in the arcades (my fave thing to do by the seaside!!) In Brighton, you can find anything from quirky cafes and shops like Choccywoccydoodah who doesn’t want to see cool things made out of chocolate. My favourite store in Brighton is this is not a butchers shop and I will be gutted if this is no longer there. As this is full of the quirky stuff that you deffo do not need in your life, but it still needs to be in your life. I also explored a variety of other shops and fell into many adorable stores such as Sass and Belle.
I am a huge fan of all three of these destinations and just whilst googling the best things to do in these places it has made my wanderlust for the UK grow even bigger. There are so many more places I’d love to visit and I will definitely be creating a part two of this post.
Where in the UK do you want to visit most?
