The UK is full of opportunities for holidays that don't break the bank, whether you're interested in city strolling or time at the beach.

  1. Manchester

    The biggest city of the North has plenty of unique districts to explore. Check out Chinatown for superb food, or drink and dance at the trendy bars and clubs of the Northern Quarter. The Arndale Centre is unbeatable for great shopping, and the Castlefield conservation area is wonderful for a peaceful stroll.

  2. Liverpool

    A city that's a great value for culture seekers. It houses The Beatles Story museum, covering the history of the town's most famous former residents. The Royal Albert Dock is a recently-renovated part of town that's become a hub for great restaurants and bars. The Royal Liver Building was built in the early 20th century and is particularly beautiful when floodlit at night.

  3. Blackpool

    A favourite for family holidays, this is the best place to go for a traditional British seaside break. The Pleasure Beach has everything from thrill rides to attractions that smaller children can enjoy. You could spend hours in the arcades alone, playing video games or having a go at winning prizes on the 2p pushers. All in all, it's unbeatable for good old-fashioned family fun on holiday.

Characterised by stone turrets, winding streets, and ancient buildings, Edinburgh is a magical maze of a city. The origins of the city date back to the early Middle Ages and it subsequently became a central stronghold for the royal charter for many years, gaining its status as the capital of Scotland in the middle of the 14th century. In the present day, Edinburgh has established itself as one of the UK’s cultural hubs-, hosting the world-famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival every August. Its historical past has even inspired great literature -JK Rowling is said to have based Hogwarts on the historic castle. 


Bristol’s history is underpinned by its role as a port city. In the mid-17th century, Bristol’s economy boomed because of its southwesterly geography - traders began importing tobacco and sugar from the West Indies. The city’s history went through a darker chapter in the 18th century, as Bristol was one of the key ports involved in the slave trade with Africa and North America. Nowadays, the city is a vibrant gem of the West Country, famed for its bohemian vibe, colourful architecture, and the yearly Bristol International Balloon Fiesta


The city of York was founded by the Romans and at that time, the city was protected by a stone wall and its inhabitants enjoyed communal bathing houses and comfortable homes. However, in the 4th-century, Roman civilization began to break down - the town was abandoned and much of it fell to ruins. It was later taken over by Viking rule, where it flourished as a centre for trade. The infamous William the Conqueror also reigned over this ancient city for a large period, cementing its position as the powerhouse of the North. Today, the castle remains where visitors pause to imagine the many grand banquets and bloody battles that once took place in those walls.
