Food – You can find every cuisine known to man within the UK and some you maybe didn’t even know existed. Our favourites are Japanese and English. Whether you’ve got a few pounds to spend or a few hundred there’s something to suit. If you’re after local cuisine hunt down a good Sunday roast, seaside fish & chips or a delicious bacon butty.
Transportation – There are so many ways to get around the UK – Tram, Bus, Boat, Bike, Train. We’ve found the best way to explore the UK was by train for longer trips or bus for shorter ones. Be warned that public transport in the UK can be expensive especially the trains.
Suggested daily budget – 40-50 GBP/50-60 EUR / 50-60 USD (Note: This is a suggested budget assuming you’re staying in a hostel, eating out a little, cooking most of your meals, and using local transportation. Using the budget tips below, you can always lower this number. However, if you stay in fancier accommodation or eat out more often, expect this to be higher!)
