Heya guys,
Any recommendations on where in the UK to go away for a weekend?
City or country.
Not Edinburgh, London, Birmingham or Cardiff.

Thanks

I'd say anglesey and ****. Cities Manchester and Bournemouth

The best thing to do is to buy a small boat (30') or so if you can afford it, and you can get to all sorts of lovely little islands (and not so lovely ones like ireland!)

Or why not just go abroad for a weekend? Tis so cheap these days

I've looked at flights and can't really get any cheap ones at the right time

Oh and also guys if it's within 3 hours drive of Birmingham that would be good too.

Swanage, in Dorset. Gorgeous little seaside town, beach, shops, boats, diving, lots of good walks over the downs, lovely.

You can do both country and city - spend a night in Newcastle with its lively nightlife. If it's a romantic weekend, take a walk up to the Sage Gateshead in the evening - you will get stunning views of Newcastle from there.
If you then want some countryside, go up to Northumberland. There is a national park, and many castles on the coastline. The North East gets overlooked by tourists, when it has so much to offer.

Manchester has nothing to do if you don't like drinking or fighting. It's a **** hole.

It's not the best for shopping though it does have the new shopping centre now. It does offer lots to see though in the form of museums, galleries (I love the tate) ferry boat on the river, cathedrals, you could take a train out to the beach with anthony gormley's stautes on it and also take a short train ride to chester for a roman themed day out on the walls and at the amiptheatre. Nightlife isn't bad either.

Ever heard of the railways? Flying for a weekend away in the UK isn't going to be worth your while.

Lots of votes for Manchester for some reason. It seems like perfectly nice place to live, but not really worth visiting (if that makes sense)

Deven/Conwall
Go boating on a loch in Scotland (duh?)
Welsh countryside if you like walking
Brighton?

Lake district/Wales national parks if it is the countryside you want.
Talking about big cities: Liverpool, Manchester, Edinburgh etc
There also many small and very beautiful towns around... Clovely in devon is good.
Oh, and by the way - with todays weather Devon/Cornwall would be a good bet.
