We’ve been to the UK numerous times – but until recently only twice have we left London (and that was for housesits in the countryside of Kent). As budget-conscious travelers, we feared the UK would be too expensive for us, but we keep going back and discovering more ways to enjoy Britain without breaking the bank!
In addition to the many free attractions, we get a feel for the area by simply wandering some of the iconic neighborhoods (which undoubtedly culminates with a pint of beer!). There is always something going on in London – and we’ve been fortunate to partake in some of the best London events, like New Year’s Eve fireworks over the River Thames and Christmas in Hyde Park.
In 2022, we added both Scotland and Northern Ireland to our UK travels and we will be returning soon for stays in Bristol, Bath, London and Kent!
