Here's what you absolutely must do when you go to the UK

Whether you’re a passionate anglophile or a first-time traveller to the United Kingdom, the UK has a plethora of iconic landmarks and natural wonders to explore. From the rolling green hills of the picturesque countryside to the vibrant cities of London, Edinburgh, and Cardiff, the UK has something for everyone. From witnessing the rich history of castles and cathedrals to sampling some of the world’s best cuisine, there are so many things to do in the UK. Here are some must-dos when you go to the UK – from the traditional to the offbeat!

Explore the cities: London, Edinburgh, Cardiff

The UK’s major cities are well worth exploring. Whether you want to shop till you drop in London’s expansive West End, take in the history of iconic landmarks like St. Paul’s Cathedral, or simply enjoy the Scottish Highlands in the charming city of Edinburgh, you’ll be sure to find something you love. From taking in the culture at a music festival to touring a brewery or distillery, you’ll find plenty to do in the cities. You can even go for a ride on a London double-decker bus or explore the iconic London Eye ferris wheel. Whatever you do, you won’t want to miss out on experiencing the sights, sounds, and tastes of the UK’s major cities. 

Visit iconic landmarks: Stonehenge, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben

There are several iconic landmarks in the UK that are a must-see for any traveller. Whether you want to explore the mysterious remains of Stonehenge or catch a glimpse of the royal family at Buckingham Palace, you’ll find there are plenty of options. Additionally, famous landmarks like St. Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, and the Tower of London are also worth visiting. They’re a great way to learn about the rich history of the UK and see how the country has evolved over time. Be sure to plan ahead when visiting iconic landmarks. Scheduling in advance can help you to avoid long wait times and get the most out of your visit. If you want some more peace while exploring a city, you could also think about booking a dayroom at Getadayroom. You’ll have an hotelroom available to set away your stuff and to change clothes or relax in-between activities.

Enjoy traditional English cuisine: Fish and Chips, Sunday Roast, Pies

There is nothing more “British” than sampling the local cuisine. While you can find plenty of chain restaurants and cafes that serve international dishes, experiencing the rich traditional cuisine of the UK is an absolute must. From fish and chips to a hearty Sunday roast, there is something for everyone. If you’re looking for something a little bit different, you can also try some of the UK’s more exotic dishes like a full English breakfast (bacon, eggs, sausage, beans, mushrooms, baked beans, toast, black pudding, and baked potatoes) or Scottish haggis (a savoury pudding made from sheep’s heart, liver, and lungs). When sampling local cuisine, don’t forget to try some British desserts. You can’t go wrong with sticky toffee pudding or something lighter like an afternoon scone with clotted cream.
