Be sure to check out the Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, Old Town, and all the cool places lost in time.

Newcastle

Heading into Newcastle, you might know exactly what to do in this metropolitan city besides the usual wine and dine. Newcastle offers some unusual attractions such as the Victoria Tunnel, Millenium Bridge, and the Discovery Museum.

The Victoria Tunnel is a preserved 19th century tunnel that was used for transporting coal and was also used as a shelter to protect 9,000 local citizens during the WWII bombings. If being underground isn’t your style, learn about being a Geordie, ancient discoveries, and modern marvels in the Discovery Museum.

Museums are plentiful here, so you can be sure to find something that matches your interest. Shopping is also a great adventure, whether you’re into surfing Camden market or heading to Harrod’s. Don’t forget the London Eye!
