Lovely United Kingdom

BIG BENUnited Kingdom well known of its fish and chips, Jamie Oliver, High tea, David Beckham and of course the famous  royal couple Kate and William.

We’ve been to the UK a couple times. The first time we went, we and some friends stayed for a few months,  because we had to do an internship abroad.  In our free time we explored cities from north to south UK by train and coach.  Because of the history they had with India/Pakistani you see a lot of influences of India (restaurants, grocery/clothing stores, indian radio stations etc)  and beside fish and chips Britain people loveee the indian dish..Curry!  Here we learned to drink tea with milk and eating biscuits, learned words like cheers/mate/bloody/fancy/ the telly and wanker haha.  We had an amazing time!  Love the country, love the people.

Here’s our where-to-go list:

Manchester:

City Manchester is a big city with lots to do and see.

* The famous Market street is very crowded but still nice to walk around. Plenty of stores, fine restaurants,singers and street/dance performers .
* Manchester united stadium.

London :

* Changing of the guard (near Buckingham palace)
* Harrods
* St paul’s Cathedral
* Millennium Bridge
* Tate Modern (musea)
* The London Eye
* Trafalgar Square
* National Gallery
* Oxford street/Piccadilly circus street ( Shopping paradise!)
* China town in London

Cities in West Yorkshire

Leeds:

* The Thornton’s Arcade  a stunning Victorian arcade, with nice little cultural and historic features.
*The Victoria Quarter with loads of little shops, great for shopping! Ideal place when its cold outside. Just walk around or enjoy a snack or meal in the several restaurants you have there. Worth to visit.
* Kirgate Market a massive indoor market with good variety of stalls. From clothes to food and much more. Its located in a beautiful Victorian building. Really a Must-see!

Bradford:

* We went to the National Media Museum twice. Its a fabulous place if you want to know all about the history of film, TV, radio photography and the web. The entrance is free of charge, many things to see and do for all ages. We and our friends also tried to read the news, oh my gosh that was so hilarious! Instead of reading we only laughed.

* City center: Just walk around in this town you will love it.  The people are so friendly here and the food is delicious!

Huddersfield:

A small town but really nice! We went several times to this Indian/Pakistani restaurants Balooshai and Kebabish Original.  They serve great and yummie dishes. We really recommend these 2.

Wakefield

North Yorkshire

York:

A city that’s known for the ancients city walls the Romans build in  71 AD. A city you have to visit.

  1. How lovely to read a post about UK ! I lived in London like a year back., I miss that place terribly.,! I’d say the next you go, you must visit Bath, it is stunning and Edinburgh if you can make time, there’s no place like it ! 🙂

    • London such a nice city! We’ve been there a few times but we cant get enough either haha. Ok the next time we go we will visit Bath, and Edinburgh is still on our list of ” places to visit “. Thanks for the advice Radhika 🙂 !

  2. Ahh I used to live in London 3 months ago, definitely miss the place. Make sure to check out Bath next time you’re there – it’s stunning!

  3. What a sweet post. Your list of words you’ve learnt made me chuckle!
    How marvelous too, to do something that means you have to spend time abroad and it sounds as though you made the best of your time here by not just staying in one place.

  5. You’ve got a good list, it’s very interesting to read it as someone who’s lived in the UK (near London) my whole life. You’ve seen a lot more of the north than I have! 😉

    I agree with other commenters, you must make sure you go to Bath next time you’re here – it’s wonderful.

    I also recommend Brighton to you as you have to see a proper English seaside, and buy some Brighton rock 🙂
