    My best mate and I are thinking of going on holiday for around 4 days, somewhere in the UK. I love London and have been there countless times but I'd like to go on holiday to a different city to explore properly.
    Which cities are cheap, cosmopolitan like London and have a good holiday vibe to it? How is Belfast? Anyone been to the edinburgh festival? Cardiff worth visiting?

    Liverpool in my opinion, with all the development and culture, is the 2nd/3rd best city in the uK, behind London. Manchester is a bit overated, scotland is ok, and ireland is poor.

    if you wanna go somewhere with really nice beaches and don't mind camping go to the Gower near Swansea.
    If I was you I wouldn't bother going to Cardiff.

    Edinburgh, or Dublin (if you can stretch to Ireland), are by far the best.
    Most UK cities don't really have much in the way of tourist attractions. Most are just shops, clubs and restaurants.

    Liverpool? Seriously? Most people have said it's quite chavvy overall. How is the city centre?

    I know, but that's what we expect: shops, clubs and restaurants. What's there to do in Dublin?

    Edinburgh is my favorite city in the UK. You have all the sights for during the day, then at night you have the big clubs like City and Cav.

    lmao liverpool isnt chavvy, thats such a stereotype. Liverpool has been completely done up town centre wise since 2008 so it is a brand new city with great shops, restaurants and nightlife. They still have awful accents though lol but its an absolutely fantastic city, would thoroughly reccomend it.

    Depends where you go the city doesn't it? There's going to be places in a city which could be classed as "chavvy". The city centre is great now and Liverpool isn't short of places to visit, I'd reccomend it but maybe I'm biased cos' I live there!
