Hello. I think I will go to the UK from 21th of Dec to 27th. I know it's Christmas season. . I will go trip with my friend. But both of us don't know where to go yet. .
I ask for any advice and tips. Please...
thanks in advance.
We probably do need more info.
The problem is that travel is limited, things like trains will be booked and much more expensive, as will car hire.
The question will be... do you want to stay in one place or move around? And if you do want to stay in one place, what kind of scene do you want?
Just stay out of London. It's not even remotely even associated with UK anymore, it's entirely an international city. I live in Southampton and even I see shit I never see anywhere else in London. It's just a tourist pit tbh
Londoner here, and I can confirm London probably isn't the best of places to go if you're a tourist, even with all the tourist attractions inside of it. Although I can say from experience that there are many beautiful places in rural England and anywhere but the city in general. Only downside is probably the costs of travel if you don't have the money to spare.
If you're seeking recommendations for places to go while you're there, I'd recommend Cheddar Gorge. It's got its history if you're into that, and there's a small town built in it that's pretty friendly overall.
More than Christmas, it's also the middle of winter. The UK is pretty far North, so if you're planning to do anything outside somewhere rural you're not going to have much light (also it tends to rain around then).
I live in York. Beautiful and historic town. Voted the most beautiful town in Europe several years.
Close to Leeds, then Manc then Liverpool. All of them very fun, lively towns with great atmosphere.
Will have to stay in London for a few days in December. My hotel is in Marylebone.
Any areas I should avoid in London? Don't wanna find myself in the middle of a white man hating caliphate...
Feel like recommending Bath. It's to my mind the most beautiful city in England (both for architecture and natural setting), and has a fair few things worth visiting, with other historic places (including Cheddar Gorge that someone else mentioned), as well as Wells, Glastonbury nearby, and places like Bristol and Cardiff not being far away either. A classical English location in a few that few places of any size are.
No, London's a safe big city. Marylebone's a particularly nice area, as are most of the neighbourhoods immediately adjacent: in the west, Maida Vale/Little Venice, to the north, St John's Wood and West Hampstead, to the east, Primrose Hill, and to the south, the West End/Mayfair. Maybe Lisson Grove and some bits of Maida Hill/West Kilburn are a little bit lairy, but only a little bit, nothing to worry about. None of them remotely caliphate-like.
