Yup.. you heard me

Me and my friends want to go around the UK on a roadtrip in summer 2010, to see the country we live in, any interesting places you guys could suggest?

Can range from anywhere in the UK and Ireland I guess.
Thanks in advance if you can think of anything

Beaches of cornwall in the summer is always fun.

Outdoors, just go to somewhere like Dalby Forest or North Yorkshire Moors and poke about in the woods?
Getting Drunk: Just go into some village pub
Sports: A football game, like Hull City, Doncaster Leeds etc, or for an experience, go and watch some lower division football like York City (They were my team's rivals though ), or go see a Yorkshire cricket game
Landmarks: Plenty around to see, historically, somewhere like York might take your fancy

Hull City A.F.C

No


There are some great places that I've seen, Bolton Abbey is an ok place. But you really want to come to Dewsbury to expierence the council houses, the violent yobs, mixed cultures and a mosque round every corner


Really though I don't know much good places myself
They made me do push ups in drag

I'll consider it

And in Cornwall isn't it a good place for surfing?

Thanks guys, might take the trip up Yorkshire way

Go see the Falkirk Wheel!!!

Actually.... no, stay away from Falkirk. Edinburgh's a cool place though, and Glasgow is great for a night out

Brighton & Hove (Well, Brighton, Hove is boring as hell).

Brighton has two Universities, a big music school (Brighton Institute of Modern Music) and a load of other colleges around it, so there's a massive student population.
Loads of pubs and clubs (something like 200) in a small town, live music at quite a few, especially in the summer. We've also had a stand-up comedy festival the last few years with a load of Britain's best comedians doing dates here for a month at the end of the summer/autumn. There's a lot of art or alternate style festivals, like the Fringe Festival and Gay Pride as well.

On top of that, there's plenty of shops, your usual high-street ones you'll see everywhere and then places like the Lanes, which have plenty of alternate clothing shops, record stores, wierd shops etc to keep you happy.

On top of that, there's plenty of historical and natural beauty stuff if thats what you're into. The Royal Pavilion, Brighton Station, the South Downs, whatever the name of the big-ass cathedral is (I forget...)

Yeah, Brighton is awesome, and is essentially built for travelling drunkards. My one warning is that parking in town is both a rip-off and will be the longest, most boring thing you will ever do.

Theres quite a bit to do in Newcastle. Also the nightlife is good if you're planning on staying over in places.
The plan was to drink until the pain over.
But what's worse, the pain or the hangover?

Don't forget about Scotland! Its got the best scenery in the UK. The west coast is spectacular, for example Glen Coe near Fort William. You must go for a walk around there, Ben Nevis is the most popular and great, but there's so much more than that. For more fantastic, at times even 'alien' scenery, try the Hebrides, the archipelago off the west coast. They're a highly varied bunch and there's something to be said for all, but the likes of Skye, Harris & Lewis, Tiree, Islay and Mull probably have the most to offer. To get to some of those you need to visit my hometown, Oban, where you can have a good, messy night out, and probably end up back at my house smoking copious amounts of weed!

Sure the rest of the UK has lots to offer - I'd say Cornwall, Brighton, Snowdonia (Wales), the Lake District, Edinburgh and of course London are all essential stop offs. But for sheer beauty it has to be the west coast of Scotland, and to illustrate this point I am now going to present to you a little selection of photos
Cullins, Skye

Beach on Harris

View from Ben Nevis

Standing Stones at Callanish, Lewis (I think)

Surfing on Tiree

Oban (the same view my house enjoys)

Fingal's Cave, Staffa

Eilean Donon Castle, Loch Duich

Larger view of said Loch (see the castle in the middle)


Sorry about the obscene size of some of the images, but hopefully it will persuade you to visit this beautiful place that so many backpackers/tourists neglect!

I did the West side of Wales this summer. Going back next summer to finish the North West, there's a lot to do/see if you're interested.

You should definately come to Birmingham ... oh wait, you're not supposed to come to Birmingham, yeah, i'm sure the second one's right. Well it depends I suppose, how much do you like getting stabbed and/or mugged?

Portsmouth.

Historic Dockyard, Spinnaker Tower, Ferry to the Isle opf Wight so you can see Osborne House and other stuff, Charles Dickens' birthplace, Fratton Park , Albert Road's really cool.

If you come in via the M275 you get a great view of a landfill and the Greyhound Track.

Also, come to Horndean and see the brewery whilst it's still around.
