 To help you get the most out of your UK trip, we’ve created a list of some of the most popular places to visit there.

Unsurprisingly, London is the most visited place in the United Kingdom. There’s so much to see and do in London, from world-famous landmarks like Big Ben and Buckingham Palace to more adventurous attractions

 like the Sherlock Holmes Museum. Prices for accommodation and food can be on the higher side, but, if you’re willing to budget and plan beforehand, this shouldn’t be too much of an issue.

There’s also the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh, a beautiful and historic city. Must-see attractions include Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile, but there’s also plenty of great shopping and nightlife to enjoy. Prices in Edinburgh are generally fairly reasonable, although accommodation can be on the pricey side during peak tourist season.

Or you could visit Manchester, which is a lively and vibrant city with plenty to see and do. Highlights include the Manchester United Museum, Old Trafford Stadium Tour, and the National Football Museum. Manchester is also a great place for shopping, with two large malls – the Arndale Centre and Trafford Centre – as well as plenty of independent shops. Accommodation prices in Manchester are a lot more reasonable than those you would find in London, making it a more friendly option for budget travellers.

These are just a few of the most popular places to visit in the UK. So, start planning your trip today and make the most out of this wonderful country!

Accommodation options and prices in the UK

There are many different accommodation options available in the UK, depending on your budget and preferences. Hostels and hotels are common choices for budget-minded travellers, while Airbnb rentals and vacation homes are popular among those who want a little more space and privacy. Prices can vary widely depending on the location and time of year – but expect to pay around AUD 1,290 per week for a basic room in most major cities. London and Edinburgh will be on the more expensive end of the spectrum, while smaller towns and villages will offer lower prices. If you’re flexible with your travel dates, you can often find great deals by booking in advance or during shoulder season (the period between high and low season).

If you can afford to splash on your accommodation a bit, expect to pay around AUD 4,970 for 7 days at a luxury hotel. For mid-range accommodation, a budgeted hotel room would be approximately AUD 1,735 per week – and a comfortable hotel room would go for around AUD 2,130 per week. Generally, you’ll find that there are quite a few accommodation options if you’re willing to shop around!

You can find out a lot about a hotel by simply checking out the reviews. Generally, if a hotel has no reviews, you may want to stay clear of it. No reviews don’t necessarily mean the hotel offers a bad experience, but it does prove to be a risky experience since you’re not sure what you are signing up for. The opposite is also true. The Resident in Covent Garden London, for example, had great reviews talking about how clean it was, its fabulous view, and its spaciousness. A hotel room for two here would go for around AUD 730 per night.
