One of the UK’s city of Culture, Liverpool, has a lot going for it.

Home to the Fab Four and the Mersey Beat, Liverpool is a Mecca (drag out those Cs for the Scouse accent!) for music fans.

Visitors can party at the cheesy Cavern Club or upmarket hipster neighbourhood, the Baltic Triangle.

Take a ferry ‘cross the Mersey and hunt out those lovely Liver birds (the ones with wings).

Over nine million people live in England’s capital, London, making it the most populated city in the whole of the United Kingdom (Scotland, England, Wales, and Northern Ireland).

The city itself is made up of lots of neighbourhood which offer something different.

The main tourist hotspots including, Trafalgar Square, London Eye, and London’s Theatres which can be found around London’s West End.

It can be expensive but we have your London on a budget trip covered – London on a budget.

However, there are plenty of other London areas which are a hotbed for art lovers, shoppers, those looking for a good night out, and music fans! 

History, business, and politics play a massive part in daily life in London (and tourism).

Tourists can visit the Houses of Parliament (<– I went on work experience at the corridors of power!) and the House of Lords, both at Westminster.

A walk along The Mall to see where King Charles lives at Buchanan Palace is also worth a trip.

Don’t miss the Changing of the Guard during the spring/summer months or a morning at the Tower of London, situated on the north bank of the River Thames.
