Any trip to the UK
must include three major cities, meaning London, Manchester and Birmingham. For those who are more than sports lovers, what else is there to do?
If in London, one has to see the Tower of London
, guided through it by the Yeoman Warders showing tourists the Crown Jewels and telling stories of old prisons. St. Paul
’s Cathedral is also a must see, along with its famous dome. Designed by sir Christopher Wren, the Cathedral was then built from 1675 to 1710. It is now the home of the world’s best knowns works of art. Then try one of London's many museums, such as Victoria
& Albert Museum
, Natural History Museum
, British Museum and the National Gallery.
Manchester welcomes tourist with big changes. As I have read the architecture is quite changed to feature modern, innovative buildings. If you are more of a cultural tourist, then try the Quays, home to the Lowry and the ‘matchstick’ paintings of LS Lowry. The Lowry features two galleries, two theatres with ballet, comedy and other performances. Near the Lowry, the next stop should be the Imperial War Museum North. Daniel Libeskind designed this museum exploring the impact of war with iconic objects. It also displays an amazing audio-visual presentation.
The Manchester Art Gallery, located in the city center, houses one of the country’s finest collections of Victorian and contemporary surroundings. You could also try the Urbis interactive museum of life in the modern city, located in the Millennium Quarter.
Home to several important museums and art galleries, Birmingham has a surprise for sweet tooths: the chocolate delights of Cadbury World. You could also try the National Sea Life Centre, UK’s first and largest inland aquarium, or Thinktank which is Birmingham’s Museum of Science and Discovery.
If such a trip appeals to you, then check out the hotels in London, the hotels in Birmingham and the hotels in Manchester, then decide on when to go to see it all.
