The United Kingdom has undoubtedly been one of the most amazing places that I have visited. I speak out of experience when I say that the UK offers some fantastic tourist opportunities. In this article, I will be giving you some suggestions as to what you can do in the United Kingdom if you have 10 days. I will cover specific locations which include England and Scotland, because these are the two places which have a lot of things to see.
I have actually written a couple of posts giving detailed descriptions as to how you can handle yourself in the UK, but I feel that there is a simple answer for that. Public transport is actually amazing in the United Kingdom. I am talking about trains and buses. They have high-speed trains which can get you all across the country in a matter of hours. I remember, when I was in the UK, I booked a ticket to Scotland, Edinburgh, specifically from London. So I went to the infamous platform 9 3/4, to see where Harry spoke to Dumbledore in the final book and headed to my train. The train took an approximate four hours to reach Edinburgh from London. This was a trip from the southern UK to the northern UK, and it was covered in just about four hours. You will see a lot of amazing scenery’s just as you look out the train window.
Here is the itinerary that you can follow:
- You need at least 2 to 3 days to spend in London because it is a large city and there is a lot to see. There is actually so much to do in London. You should visit Buckingham Palace, have afternoon tea in the Harrods, visit Saint Pauls Cathedral, walk on the Millennium Bridge (NOT destroyed as shown in Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince). These are just a few things that I have mentioned; there is a LOT MORE. Moving on.
- Go to Oxford. It is an hour and a half away by bus from London. It is a stunning small university city. It was also one of the most famous filming locations for the Harry Potter films.
- After you are done with Oxford, get on a train to Bristol. Buses are also available from Oxford to Bristol. You should know that it is three hours by bus to Bristol. Bristol has vibrant street art and some beautiful museums.
- Once you are done with Bristol, you can move on to the North and head up to Liverpool.
- After Liverpool, finally, you can head to the proper North, the Scottish capital – Edinburgh! Honestly, Edinburgh has been one of the most beautiful cities that I have ever been to. Have a great time with the bagpipers and whiskey.
