Exploring the UK: A Mini Guide

If you are planning to explore the UK, you may want to spend some time considering your trip in advance. Below are some pointers to follow before you start your adventure. Making the most of your trip is easy with a small amount of planning, to ensure your trip is as memorable as possible.

Be Prepared

Compile a checklist of all the activities you want to get involved in when exploring the UK and make a note of the sights that appeal to you. Depending on the length of your trip, you should be able to tick through more than a few of the boxes. Seeing as the UK is relatively small compared to other countries, you might find that you can squeeze quite a lot into your getaway. Remember that the UK is usually temperate, so you needn’t pack to account for extreme weather conditions, having said this, it’s always best to be safe rather than sorry so check the weather a number of days before leaving for your adventure and pack appropriately.


Seeing as the UK is an island, there’s a bounty of beautiful coastlines to explore. If you want to see some of the best beaches the British Isles has to offer, then be sure to conduct some proper and thorough research to see which ones appeal most to you. If you’re a keen surfer, then you’ll best off making a trip to Devon to catch some of the waves there rather than visiting the South Coast.

The Capital

Make your way to London to enjoy an immersive trip filled with fun, culture, and awe-inspiring architecture dotted around the entire city. There simply is so much to see and do in London, from art galleries to river experiences, to burlesque shows, and Harry Potter inspired cocktails bars just to give you a small idea of what to expect. If you’re thinking of heading into London, then make things easiest for yourself and stay somewhere central as it’s then quicker to get from A to B, and you shouldn’t have to make as many changes on the tube as you would have if you stayed further afield. Consider downloading a tube map to get to grips with the underground stations, and order an Oyster card if you are planning to travel about quite extensively.

Big Cities

Before exploring a large city, decide what you’re going to get up to. Devise an itinerary and try to stick to your plan to make your trip as stress-free as it can be. Having said this, you’re more than likely going to be recommended places to visit that will differ from your original list, so try and work new places to see into your scheduled plan without disrupting much else. In order to enjoy more activities and excursions, you might have to accept the fact that you’re going to have less time in bed and more time out about and seeing the city.
