Top 5 / Europe

While the British capital is the biggest attraction in the country, there are lots of other cities that deserve a visit. Here are some of the best.

 

Leeds

A two-hour train ride from London is Leeds, a booming city that underwent something of a renaissance in recent years. It now boasts great shopping, a raft of wonderful eating and drinking establishments, and the picturesque Yorkshire Dales just outside town.

 

Edinburgh

Further north, over the border with Scotland, lies the city of Edinburgh. It’s a traditional place with winding streets and a famous castle, as well as the yearly comedy festival known as Edinburgh Fringe.

 

Bath

Within striking distance of London is Bath, a Roman city famous for its hot springs. Get up early and you can make this a daytrip from the capital, but you’ll have more fun if you give yourself time to appreciate the Georgian architecture and the charming pubs, too.

 

Salisbury

Salisbury might have hit the headlines recently after a visit from Russian spies, but it’s long been a favorite among tourists for its laid-back atmosphere and impressive cathedral. You can also tack on a visit to the nearby ruins at Stonehenge, which lie just off the road to London.

 

Brighton

Just an hour train journey from London is the traditional seaside town of Brighton, with its pebble beach, pier and countless fish and chip shops. Book a daytrip to experience the British seaside without taking multiple days out of your holiday.
