There are few places on earth that can match the beauty of the Lake District. Each year over 12 million visitors come to experience its famous lakes, mountains, and picturesque villages.
Penrith is a historic market town in the Eden Valley, just outside the border of the Lake District National Park and only 6 miles from Ullswater and Pooley Bridge. It was once the capital of Cumbria but now serves as important regional shopping centre.
Visitors who haven’t been to Manchester for a while may no longer recognise the city. In the last decade huge construction projects have transformed the landscape of the world’s first industrial city.
Cluttered with souvenir shops and fast food restaurants, many see Blackpool as the archetypal tacky British seaside resort. The town is changing though and recent years have seen new tourist attractions and improvements.
Chester is undoubtedly one of the UK’s most beautiful cities. It is also one of the best preserved, with some parts of the city walls dating back more than 2,000 years.
Liverpool is the one of the largest cities in the UK. Its name conjures up images of a glorious maritime heritage, two of the biggest and most successful football teams in the Premier League, friendly locals, and the Beatles.
