I visited the Cathedral. I didn’t go to the city centre though. We stayed for about 2 hours.

Mandatory picture outside cathedral (I look awful…I was very tired :s)
I went on a sailing holiday and we picked the ship up in Portsmouth. Because we had to get on at 1 o’clock we stayed over and we got to see some of the city.
It is a nice city. There are hundreds of benches! literally a bench every metre! the city itself isn’t very large and it may be a bit boring in the winter, but it would be lovely in the summer.
There was a little fairgound and a castle which was actually tiny! and loads of grassy areas.
This is like Chester. The majority of the city is the university so most of the touristy stuff is university related. The city itself isn’t very big so it would only make a day trip. We found that there was a suprising amount of French people and we’re not sure why (like 75% of the people in the street!).
Just for the day, but to be honest there isn’t really a lot to do.
I didn’t see some of the touristy things, but I saw the canal, the city walls, the clock, the cathedral and the town hall.
Here are all the cities in the UK. I will make another post with the ones coloured in that I have been to.
My friend was telling me that she gets annoyed when people visit exotic places, yet they haven’t visited their own country. Therefore, I will make it my goal to visit every city in the UK. I am not sure if I will include Ireland, but I suppose I could do all them in one trip. I have visited many places, but not in a touristy way, so I will make a rule that some tourist attractions in the city centre must take place.
Birmingham – Been there a couple of times, however I don’t think I have visited the attractions
Bradford – Driven through it, I should visit, it is only a short bus ride away from Leeds
Brighton and Hove
Chester – I am going to visit this on a day trip for my birthday, I am sure I have probably visited it before, but I can’t remember.
Durham – I would like to visit this because it is small but traditional
Kingston upon Hull
Leeds – Yes – Lived there for 2 Years
Liverpool – Lived not far away for 18 years, visited it many times
*City of London – Although I have had 2 touristy days on separate occasions and have seen the sights from a coach and some in person, I would like to spend at least a weekend there.Manchester – I have visited this city many times although just for one attraction because I live so close. When I go and visit my friend I would like to see more of the city.
Newcastle upon Tyne
Nottingham – I went on an open day, but I didn’t get to see the city.
Sheffield – I visited it an did touristy things when I visited my sister in Uni
York – My flatmate goes to Uni there and I have had lots opportunities to go, but I haven’t yet :(. I like it because it is old.
Edinburgh – I have been twice. I did all the main tourist attractions available.
Cardiff – I may have been, but I am not sure
Londonderry (also known as Derry)
