The United Kingdom offers its visitors an array of experiences that differ from other you may find across Europe. Whilst most tourists find themselves drawn to London and Cambridge, one should not be restricted, and it is in fact a good idea to explore options that spread all over the UK to make the trip the most memorable it can be.
Fun things to do when travelling through the UK
Visit and stay at York
York is loaded with millennia of history and has multiple attractions. The York Maze is one such that promises to be great fun. Although it is open to visitors only from mid July to beginning of September, it is famous for the Giant Maize Maze consisting of a million maize plants. Kids will have fun solving the Finger Fortune Maze and the Maze of Illusions, amongst others. There are multiple BnB’s and flat share options at York that are easy on the pocket. Some offer special rates for students making for a more affordable option.
The astonishing beauty of the Fingal’s Cave has drawn people from across genres including Pink Floyd and Jules Verne. The spectacular hexagonal basalt columns that make up the interiors create a pathway that people can walk over and reach the insides of the cave. The amazing acoustics produced at times inside the cave also causes it to be called “Cave of Melody”. Its beauty has inspired people of all walks of life. One can reach it by boat to the nearest ferry or by bus, and there are also train services.
Hire a canal boat
UK is famous for its landscape which is laced with canals and waterways. A fun way to see this for yourself is to explore the canals on a canal boat. You can cruise around the canals of London, the infamous Leeds-Liverpool canal and even through Ireland on these. An entirely water-based route through Bath and Edinburgh can be chalked out. The canal boats are equipped with most amenities like showers, beds, kitchens and adequate heating. The beautiful views along the way make it all worth it. The famed English countryside is explored at its best in this manner.
Harry Potter tour
Platform 9 and 3/4th is the stuff of legends and no one, young or old, wants to give this tour a miss. A whole new industry has been spawned around ‘The Boy who Lived’ and the Harry Potter experience is a magical place to visit. Filled with merchandise shops and other things relatable to the famed series; the excitement is never ending. Getting a chance to ride your own broomstick, visiting Dumbledore’s office, the wonders never cease. The walking tour takes you to film locations where you can identify a lot of what you watched on the screen.
