The Best Cities to Explore When Visiting England (Post Covid-19 Guide)

The Best Cities to Explore When Visiting England

Do you find yourself losing track of the latest lockdown restrictions? It has been a struggle for many of us as trips are cancelled, and travel plans get rearranged, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start planning, ready for when restrictions lift, and we’re able to explore new cities again.

As England has just entered its second lockdown, be sure to check local guidelines before travelling or planning your next trip. From the lush green countryside to beautiful architecture, striking cityscapes, and a whole lot of culture in between – there is something just so charming about England.

With so much choice, it can be hard to know where to start when it comes to selecting which cities to visit. It is recommended you spend some time organising your plans to make sure you don’t miss some of the most appealing spots that the UK has to offer, – post Covid-19, of course.

Here we’ve provided a list of ten of the best English cities to visit, and three of our favourites when it comes to rummaging around the history of these places to find the very best of everything that this country has to give!

  • London
  • Brighton
  • Leeds

Our Top 3 Favourites:

1. Manchester

Considered the heart of England, Manchester may have the most to offer. From its famous football club and Old Trafford Museum, you can relive some of Ryan Giggs’ best moments at Manchester United. Visit the creative side of the city at the Manchester Art Gallery, or take in the warm northern spirit as you wander Albert Square, – home to the world-famous Christmas markets. This city remains an important place in the culture of England with remarkable musical history and vibrant city hot spots for students and young professionals, and why RWinvest boasts about Manchester being one of the most attractive city centre investment markets in Britain.

2. Bath

This city might take the top spot when it comes to the best city to visit in England. There is so much to explore, see and experience all in one place. Climb the stairs and take in Roman history as you immerse yourself in the ancient Baths dating all the way back to 76 CE. Be sure to take a dip in the natural Thermae Spa before you leave, to look out over this beautiful city. Unfortunately, this is temporarily closed but will hopefully open in the new year. Finally, after a relaxing soak, head to the popular Sally Lunn’s, a historic eating house best known for its delicious buns!

3. York

No matter how many times we have stumbled upon this quaint city, York always has something new to offer. For those of you who have never been to York before, make sure you find time to roam the ancient parts of the city centre, from the largest Gothic building in Great Britain to the 14th-century walls that surround the medieval city. Walk along the Shambles, where you’ll find little boutiques and some pretty places for a spot of tea, and maybe a slice of cake! On a summer’s day, you can sightsee whilst learning how to ride a boat and enjoy cruising the city in style.
