    Trip Plan to Northern Parts of UK

    One of the nine regions of UK, north England usually includes County Durham, Northumberland, Tees Valley and Tyne and Wear to its list. The natives here carve a niche for their suave nature and grit. From the deserted swaddles of Northumbria to the manufacturing belt of South Yorkshire, you'll find the same essence of spirit and humor in the locals.

    On your trip to northern parts of UK, you can also explore various attractions surrounding the modern cities of Newcastle and Leeds, the antique cathedral cities of Ripon and York, the remarkable Dales National Park, the quaint cities of Knaresborough and Harrogate and not to mention the beautiful coastal resorts of Scarborough and Whitby.


    Know the North UK Trip Details
    Determining how to spend your time at its best in north UK may often seem a daunting affair as this tourist destination is full of modern amusements and historical monuments. Now, when time is a factor, deciding which place to visit and which to overlook is often difficult. However, if you choose a travel itinerary highlighting your priorities, then things can be at ease. As north UK is further divided into north east UK and north west UK, you need to try including the best of both the worlds in your itinerary.

    Prominent Cities to Visit on your Trip to Northern Parts of UK
    Manchester: The third largest city in England, Manchester is located approximately 50km east of Liverpool. In addition to having a wide range of museums which reflect its role in the revolutionary advancements of the Industrial Age, the city has also weaved the memories of its glorious past with a motivated program of urban development.

    Liverpool: It's the buzzing culture of Liverpool that makes tourists fall for this place over and over again. The city's stock of top notch art galleries and museums has added to its beauty. Besides, the nightlife is as varied and exotic as you would have expected from a northern city in UK.

    Scarborough: The town would have remained in complete medieval gloom if the announcement of the waters having medicinal properties were not made in 1620. Today, it is known as the first sea bathing destination in England and is largely visited by tourists every year.

    York: A city of exceptional historical and cultural wealth, York boasts of a rich heritage and long history. Besides, the city is also noted for its Gothic cathedrals, traditional pubs, restaurants and museums.

    Points of Interest on your trip to Northern Parts of UK

    Diggerland: With more than 18 rides to choose from, Diggerland offers an adventurous park experience for kids. So, whether it's looking for the buried treasure, digging a huge hole using dirt diggers or testing skills on the Dumper Trucks, you'll get loads to explore on this adventurous tour.

    Scarborough Marine Sanctuary: On your tour to this sanctuary you'll find a wide range of fascinating and remarkable sea life creatures including mighty sharks and humble starfish. You'll also get an opportunity to explore freshwater streams and rivers, the uneven UK coastline, the tranquil waters of the Barrier Reef and the dark depths and shallows of the North Sea.

    Additionally, some of the other attractions that you can explore are North York Moors National Park, Honister Slate Mine, South Lakes Wild Animal Park, Blue Planet Aquarium, Yorkshire Dales National Park, and Durham Cathedral.

    I personally think the North of England is the worst part of England to visit, more so in particular the North East. There are some beautiful locations don't get me wrong, but I think the South of England has far more to offer in terms of scenic attraction. York is a town that is steeped in history though, I have only been to York once but it was so pleasant, and the people there seem friendly and warm.

    I kind of agree, with a caveat. York is indeed a beautiful city, rich in history. I'd also say that Liverpool is a must-visit for pop-culture fans, and people who want to understand more about the country, class divides, etc. You could get through a great road trip visiting the likes of York, Chester, Liverpool, and sty a few days in the amazing Lake District.

    In the north-east, Sunderland is a bit of a hidden gem. I'd highly recommend reading Bryan Talbot's Alice in Sunderland - a graphic novel which explains some of the history of the town. Next door is Newcastle, another popular spot for tourists who weren't necessarily expecting much.

    So, while it's probably true that the south of the country is better off for tourist spots, the north certainly has its fair share of attractions too!

    I wonder whether Newcastle Upon Tyne belongs in the northern part of the UK as well. I have heard nothing but good things about the place. If you are up for fishing and a lot of surfing, this is the place to be according to some of my friends...I don't know exactly if this is true as I have never been there myself but intend to go there during one of the bank holidays.

    I would have to say the Peak District, which is an upland area in central and Northern England, mainly in Derbyshire. Being from Northern England originally I can tell you that the Peak District is a must.

    Northern UK Trip Planning

    Surely these aren't really "northern parts of the UK", but rather "northern parts of England"? Scotland has a lot to offer (although I would say that, being Scottish ) - Edinburgh and Glasgow are both packed with cultural attractions, friendly locals, good shopping, unique places to eat and more. The more scenic areas are lovely too - if you go to Glasgow, you should definitely head north a bit to Loch Lomond. It's the largest loch in Scotland and has lots of nice wee villages dotted around its banks, parks, forests, boat trips etc. I've not really been near the Highlands and Islands, but I've heard the Islands have a lot to offer as well. If you're determined to stay in England, there are some lovely places in Northumberland. I really like Alnwick - it's got an amazing vintage bookshop called Barter Books (definitely visit! Best bit about the town!), and Alnwick Gardens are nice too. Alnwick Castle is where they filmed a few scenes in Harry Potter but I didn't visit it so I can't give you many details. There are also some really nice seaside towns with picturesque beaches, like Seahouses. A bit further south, I would recommend York - very historical but also very vibrant.

    There are some lovely towns and locations in the North of England. York has already been mentioned, and I seem to remember Harrogate being a nice small town for a day trip.

    The Yorkshire Dales National Park is another beautiful scenic area worth visiting.
