    There are so many beautiful places to visit in the UK! I am surprised you said most people visit cities such as Birmingham?! After living in Birmingham for a year I have tried to convince people that it is quite nice and not as bad as many people in the UK think.

      Well, they actually do. According to several sources I could find (including Visit Britain, World Atlas, and Wikipedia) Birmingham is the fourth most visited city in the UK, falling behind only London, Edinburgh, and Manchester.

    Great suggestions. This is such a comprehensive list of some of the most scenic places to visit across the UK. Those colorful buildings of Pembrokeshire definitely remind me of the villages of Cinque Terre. Would love to visit Portmeirion – looks like such a charming place and reminds me of Positano. You’ve captured the beauty of the countryside and coastal towns so beautifully in this post.

    I’m embarrassed to say as a Brit I’ve only been to 3 of these, but totally agree the English countryside and coast are spectacular. The Lake District is next on my list

    Wow ! UK has so much to offer but sadly I never explored anywhere outside of London ! Already bookmarked this post for my future references. Some of the places remind me of other European countries. Love the coastal towns like Pembrokeshire and St Ives, they remind me of Porto ! And the beautiful landscapes of Gower and Poole, they remind me of Iceland ! Love to explore them some day !

      I’m sorry to hear that Jeremy, but hey, there’s always next time. Indeed, some of the coastal cities in Wales are absolutely charming and I didn’t believe my eyes when I first visited 🙂

    That’s a great list of places to visit in the UK. The Lake District has intrigued me much. I would love to spend a weekend there, and also probably take a road trip by the Isle of Wight, Llandudno and Bournemouth also look amazing. I would need a month to cover all these.

    What a wonderful list of places in the UK. And so many of these I haven’t ever even heard of. Scotland looks amazing, and especially Neist Point looks like something I would enjoy visiting. Absolutely beautiful!

    London is the only place in the UK that I have visited and it’s been quite a while. I enjoyed reading your round-up post on the 21 Best summer holiday destinations in the UK. I love your description of St. Ives in England. It sounds like it has a lot of cultures and I want to see how the dunes are different from those in Dubai and Africa.

    The Island of Wight is amazing and it’s so easy to go there for the weekend from London. I would love to visit Poole and Dorset, I’ve heard great things about both of them.

    I love that the UK is such a diverse destination! There are beautiful harbor towns like St Ives and then more rustic cities like Devon. St Ives reminds me a lot of the Almafi Coast in Italy, actually. I would love to spend a year or so in the UK just exploring all these lovely cities. Beautiful photos!

    I am not a big fan of big cities. I am more of a countryside girl. This list of places are simply superb. Each one of these places is for people like me who love to explore beyond obvious. I am sold to the Poole, and Pentewan. I love places which are off the tourist’s map and less crowded. I am definately going visit some of the mentioned places for sure. Thank you for the list.

    It was only today that someone mentioned England and I sprung up saying that I want to so visit it. It was the highlands that were on my mind. However, your post added another reason to get there. From this list, I would love to visit Northumberland as well. It reeks of tranquil beauty and such amazing colors. Thanks for sharing these.
