Hi people! Im from Manchester in the UK which isnt the most picturesque place on the planet but its a really nice city, picadilly gardens and St. Annes square in the City centre and Salford Quays nearby aree very nice locations.
Around the conutry though i would like to make these recomendations:
Whitby bay, a rugged coastline which amazing scenery. Gets a little cold around this time of year but the village nearby and the various walking routes will keep you warm. Located west of York i think.
Conway Castle, I've been there twice and its an incredible place, theres a small promenade there with the most excellant chippy in the world! and the smallest house in the world too, 50p to get in it, but its worth it
The castle itself is huge and great fun if you have kids.
The city of Cardiff is very nice, again, the castle is the main attraction but the shops are very cute and the city has a really nice feel to it. The inhabitants are very nice too, though i may be bias slightly as half my family live there
Try and see as much of Wales as is possible as it's, imo, the most beautiful place in britain.
Other nice cities that ive been to are Sheffield and York. Sheffield is a modern city but the archictecture is very beautiful. York is a very old city and, though large, has mostly been kept as it was ages past. The York dungeons are great and the archiac eelof the place is very nice
York used to be capital of England i think... or maybe north england.. :-? *Help! anyone!*
