UK has a lot to offer!!! Iconic Tower bridge, Lords (Home of Cricket), your favourite football club stadium, Wimbledon , GOT official tour in Ireland ,breathtaking picturesque views in Lake District & Scotland, south coast of England and the list goes on and on.If you are on a short trip ,you may always come back wishing had more time and covered a lot more places. However with two weeks of vacation in hand and with a bit of meticulous planning , you can cover most parts of UK.
Here’s my guide on how you can make the most of your two weeks trip to UK:
The itinerary I would suggest is to land at Belfast and explore few places in Northern Ireland in 2 days
1 day to Dublin
1 day to Edinburgh and 3 days to explore a whole lot of Scotland by coach tours
2 days at Lake District
1 day at York
2 days at London
1 day to Bath and Stone Henge
1 day to explore Cotswold and
1 day to explore Durdle door ( south coast)
I have excluded Wales out of this itinerary but one can choose between Lake District or Snowdonia national park at Wales depending on schedule, preference and budget.
The best month to visit is April( well my birthday month) when it’s not too cold and not too hot and probably the perfect weather to enjoy the best of boths.
Research thoroughly about cheapest flight options and whether return tickets to London and booking local flights separately would work out best for you or whether multi city flights. Multi city option worked best for me ,however keep an eye on the baggage allowance offered by low cost airlines and book online for additional baggage
allowance,otherwise you may end up shelling more at the airport.
Airbnb are the best options for most of the places .
Immigration will still happen in London if it’s via but the best part is, in-transit immigration is way too quicker.
Have a balance between opting for coach tours and hiring a car as it can get too hectic and tiring to drive for longer hours.
Places to visit in Belfast:
Belfast City Hall,
St George’s Market(Open only till 3 pm)
Titanic Museum and S.S.Nomadic Ship
Crown Liquor Saloon Bar (one of the iconic bars in Belfast ) . There are a lot of options near Victoria Square too.
Watch out for all the wall paintings.One can opt for black cab tours too.
