5 Best Places to Visit in Great Britain

There are so many amazing destinations to visit in the UK – but there are some destinations that just have to be at the top of your list. So, if you are looking for the best places to visit in Great Britain, take a look at our 5 top tips…


Liverpool has had a bit of a makeover in recent years. The maritime city, which was once synonymous with crime and shell-suits, is now bursting with life. The events are extraordinary, the festivals are legendary and the scenery is simply beautiful.

When it comes to fashion, movie productions, things to do and places to see, Liverpool is the place to be. There are more shops than you can shake a stick at. The restaurants demand to be experienced, and the bars are some of the coolest in the country. With an exciting nightlife, show-stopping theatre scene and fantastic cultural events, you will never want to leave the city that’s growing day after day.

Where to stay: Signature Living’s serviced apartments in Liverpool.

Where to visit: The Albert Dock.


For beautiful views, country walks, quaint cottages and lovely little pubs, there is no place better than Bowness-on-Windermere. Feed the ducks in the stunning lakes, nip down to the Hole in T’ Wall pub for a cheeky pint, or embark on one of the many walking trails in the Lake District.

Where to stay: One of the many cottages in the area.

Bodmin Moor

Bodmin Moor in Cornwall offers everything from beautiful landscapes, ancient building, medieval farms and a wide wooded river valley. Just like Liverpool, Bodmin Moor also has World Heritage Site status, as it recognises the location’s tin mining industry 4,000 years ago.

When you visit Bodmin Moor, you can journey across 150 square miles, taking in the wild landscape of Corwall. We also recommend heading on up to Brown Willy or Rough Tor to take in the view from the two highest peaks in Cornwall, which will certainly take your breath away.

Where to stay: Jamaica Inn.

Snowdonia has to be one of Wales’ most beautiful destinations, offering the country’s highest mountain, Snowdon, as well as a gorgeous national park that stretches 823 square miles. Established in 1951, it was the third national park in Britain, following the Peak District and the Lake District.

Where to stay: Craig-y-Dderwen Riverside Hotel.

Where to Visit: Snowdonia National Park.


Whether you love history, architecture, entertainment, excellent nightlife or just some spooky stories, we implore you to visit Edinburgh. The Scottish city is one of the most popular destinations on Earth for a reason, as there is so much to see and do in the city.

From the Queen’s official residence of the Palace of Holyrood House to the famous Edinburgh Castle, you will need more than a week – or even a year – to tick everything off your bucket list. One of the best times to visit the city has to be in August when the Edinburgh Festival takes place, welcoming performances from famous and small-time comedians, theatre productions and street performers.

Where to stay: The Witchery by the Castle.

Where to visit: Edinburgh Castle.

Blighty offers so many amazing cities, attractions and events you won’t want to miss, but the above destinations are a great place to start.
