There’s so much to see outside of London. UK has good transport links, making getting into any city much easier. In all cities, you can also find guides to help you through your adventure.
London is the capital, but often people forget there’s so much more to see outside London.
Here are some beautiful pictures of some popular cities in the UK. Any time I travel across the country, I try to take as many pictures as possible so I can share with y’all. So next time you plan to visit the UK, be sure you’ve got much more to see outside London.
West Yorkshire consists of five metropolitan boroughs; City of Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, City of Leeds and City of Wakefield. West Yorkshire is a county in Yorkshire in the north of England. You’ll find very old structures in some parts of West Yorkshire. It’s largely industrial, but with a surprising amount of countryside.
Leeds is West Yorkshire’s biggest city and main transport hub. It has the best shopping, dining and drinking, and a modern shopping centre. The city has so many stunning buildings and cultural landmarks to discover. To discover leeds, you need to set aside a weekend to explore and discover the city.
The University of Leeds is one of the largest Universities in the country. The University of Leeds is a public research university in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. It was established in 1874 as the Yorkshire College of Science.
Leeds-Bradford Airport (LBA IATA) is the major airport in West Yorkshire. It’s a base for budget airline Jet2, and also served by Ryanair, and has decent connections across western Europe.

The UK, being a small country, has many transportation options. Some cheaper than others. I use the bus for short trips but the train for longer trips. It depends on the cost sometimes getting on a bus can be cheaper than buying a train ticket.
So most times I compare both prices before getting a ticket.
As long as you have time, using a mix of train, bus, taxi, walking and occasionally hiring a bike, you can get almost anywhere in England without having to drive. I’ve been to lots of cities in the UK and can’t wait to visit more.
Getting around in the UK can be confusing as well. I remember my first days in the uk, I missed my train and bus sometimes. There was a particular day I travelled first class on the train. I was sitting in first class while having a standard ticket. I didn’t even realise till I got to my destination and told my friend I was offered biscuit and tea. She shouted and said “Precious, you entered first class” I was like “ehn ehn”. I had no idea about the sitting arrangement on the train.
If you’re in London, the London underground rail network, or “the Tube” is a great way to travel to and fro from central London.
Also so much to learn but very easy to get carried away. The best way to get the most of UK is to travel and explore many cities. My experience so far has been enlightening to say the least.
Egypt, a country linking northeast Africa with the Middle East, dates to the time of the pharaohs. I flew Egyptair, though my flight was 2 hours delayed, I sat at Heathrow airport terminal 2 just scrolling through my phone patiently waiting before we finally boarded the plane.
The service offered to us on the plane was alright, the food was also okay.
Well, we finally arrived in Egypt. Before we landed, from my window, looking down, everything was totally different. Out the plane window the structure of houses were different and I saw desert. The view of sand sea was also exciting to see. Egypt’s deserts have little or no vegetation.
The plane was stopping over in Egypt so we couldn’t go outside the airport but the weather in Cairo was cool and not too hot. I had a safe flight, it was nice flying Egyptair.
My visit to Scotland this year was amazing. Just so you know- Doune Castle, Scotland: The Game of Thrones Pilot was Filmed Here. One of the most important locations to see may be Doune Castle. Located in Doune, Scotland, this was the location that served as Winterfell during the unforgettable pilot episode of the first season of Game of Thrones.
One thing I also noticed was that People are really friendly in Scotland, people were willing to take my pictures with a smile on their faces. People are also happy to help direct you when you’re lost, unlike London were no one cares! Passionate and innovative country and you’ll see that clearly everywhere you go.
I took an airplane from London Luton airport to Edinburgh airport, the flight was about an hour. I also visited Glasgow. The trip took approximately 1 hour. Train journeys between Glasgow and Edinburgh typically last 50 minutes during the day.
Also, the houses looked quite different from the houses in England. The buildings in Scotland have different colours, the colour of the bricks used in making their houses is different. It was really fun walking around the beautiful city.
Scotland, most northerly of the four parts of the United kingdom, occupying about one-third of the island of Great Britain. The name Scotland derives from the Latin Scotia, land of the Scots, a Celtic people from Ireland who settled on the west coast of Great Britain about the 5th century AD.
