    Most of my close mates are doing internships and whatnot this summer, and we can't find a time we are all free, so we have decided to each do our own thing. Some are going on family hols but I'm free till October so have decided to travel solo. I can afford to go abroad, but like saving to I am sticking to the UK.

    Where should I go? Any suggestions? I am thinking of going to Scotland as they might be separate from us fairly soon and I've never been. I also haven't been to quite a few major UK cities up north (e.g. Leeds/Liverpool/Newcastle) though I am not sure what I'd do if I went there on my own. I have loads of time free so will probably do lots of mini/day trips rather than one big tour.

    Any suggestions would be most welcome

    Bristol is really nice - beautiful buildings and lovely scenery. Liverpool has had a lot of regeneration - it is a bit rough round the edges but still quite fun. Try Dungeness in Kent - nuclear power station but also great beach and great scenery - acoustic mirrors from the war and artist colony. Brighton - well what can I say about Brighton - alternative, off the wall, really great place

    Thanks . I'm definitely going to Bristol and Liverpool as they are both major cities and I haven't been yet; if I'm doing day trips, what sort of things could I do solo? I may try Dungeness and Brighton too, I'm not sure if I could do "beachy/holiday" type places on my own though

    That is actually a brilliant idea, thank you. Just checked prices and they are DEAD cheap.

    I wouldn't worry, they won't be rebuilding Hadrians Wall anytime soon

    Depends what you actually want and what your interests are. If you like stunning scenery, I can name a few places, a few definite hidden gems. If you like historical sites, plenty of recommendations on that front.

    There is more to the UK than big cities, I travel around the UK a lot for sport, done a lot of walking and haven't even scratched the surface. I don't think I ever will to be honest.

    Come visit Scotland! Really nice scenery as well. I'd recommend Edinburgh and Inverness as they are nice cities to visit with lots of things to do. If you go up to Inverness you're not far away from Loch Ness as well.
