I spent one year studying in England. Thanks to our student organisation we had a lot of opportunities to travel in other UK cities on a low budget. Here are the cities I liked most during that time:

1. Oxford

2. York

4. London

5. Edinburgh

Oxford – the city famous for its university and known as the „city of dreaming spires“ (due to its architecture). The university is amazing. I went to the famous Bodleian Library which was a unique experience. It’s one of the oldest libraries in Europe and also a setting of the Harry Potter Movies. But well…that’s probably almost every nice spot in the UK Oxford is also very green, right next to the uni there are parks where you can hang out with your friends or learn. Additionally, Oxford is like Amsterdam. You see bikes all over the city, it’s incredible – more bikes than cars. So due to this cozy atmosphere – it’s my number 1 city in the UK.

York is a very old, historic small city. It’s probably not very well known but in my opinion it should be. It’s a city to just stroll around and enjoy the atmosphere, walk along the city medieval walls or visit the Minster.

Liverpool is completely characterized by its most famous band: The Beatles and an definite bucket list point for every fan. But next to the Beatles Museum and all that stuff, I loved walking along the Albert Dock. They offer funny sightseeing tours with the yellow duckmarine. On land it’s a bus with wheels but on the other hand it’s a boat. The yellow duckmarine looks like a duck’s bill, I actually didn’t do the yellow Duck marine but in the case I will ever come back to Liverpool I will book a tour. We also visited an old church. It was destroyed in the Second World War and is only a ruin now without a roof. You need to wear helmet of construction workers, I don’t know if it’s seriously necessary, I don’t actually think so but it was fun. Inside the ruins there was kind of an alternative art gallery: Photographs and some statues, really nice hidden spot.

Well, I don’t have to say much I guess. It’s London – one of the most famous cities in the world. It’s definitely a must-see city. I would recommend everyone to go there. There is so much to do, see and explore. Next to the well known sights, you should also spend some time getting lost in the city. What I liked most is the inter nationality. So many different people, different languages, different cultures wherever you go.

The capital of Scotland. Another very historic city. It’s very easy to orientate yourself in the city centre. There are High Street and Princess Street. Princess Street is the shopping street, you’ll have the shops on the one side and a park and some small historic monuments on the other. High Street is the “tourist” street leading from the Palace of Hollyroodhouse to the Edinburgh Castle.
