- Recommend a UK New Year city (probably) break
We went to Belfast for a few days last new year, it was great, maybe looking to do something similar this year. Ideas? Somewhere with enough interest to wander about in the day (including maybe as a base for public transport trips out to places), good pubs and eateries for the evenings.
Thought about maybe York, not Edinburgh as done that a fair bit, not London as ditto. Durham? Norwich? Leeds? Let’s have your ideas.Posted 1 month agotoby1Member
York over Leeds any day of the week
In fairness I could take or leave a lot of Leeds, but I did rather enjoy the refectory one stupidly hot summer evening this year.
York is lovely too though.
Personally give me a comfy seat and decent supply of beer close to my bed on New Years and I’m happy.Posted 1 month agotnrbillyMember
Had a fantastic weekend in Liverpool a few years ago. Friend-est people ever.
Or at the other end of the country Padstow is great out of season. Everything is open. Lots of fresh air walking on the beaches and coast path. Loads of little shops to wander around and amazing restaurants and pubs. Plus there are enough people around to make it buzzy without the hideous crowds of the summer.Posted 1 month agow00dsterSubscriber
As someone who regularly visits Norwich, I’m there now. I’d avoid, this is a City in decline. Pubs and bars are very quiet, even rundown. No great places to eat.Posted 1 month ago
Liverpool is an amazing City, lots to see and do.
Bath would be my shout though. (Actually a Cotswold’s pub would be my shout – but I’m probably a fair bit older than the OP!)
