29 Things to do in UK before You Die ...


Just 29 things to do in the UK before you die?

Yes I know!

I could probably write 100 things to do in each of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, but as you know, I like to tease you with just a flavour of what the world has in store for travellers.

Check out the list of things to do in the UK before you die and at the end, I’d love to hear about the ones you think should be on the list.

Happy reading!

1. Visit London

Visit London

I am firmly of the belief that everyone, no matter where you live, should visit their country’s capital.2

The fact that London is one of the greatest cities in the world makes it very easy to make seeing it one of the things to do in the UK before you die.

Tour the amazing historical sights, enjoy the view from either the London Eye or the Shard, visit the museums, enjoy Theatreland or a spot of shopping, dine in a 3-Michelin Star restaurant and dance the night away in one of the world class nightclubs with top DJs.

2. Have a Cream Tea in Devon

Have a Cream Tea in Devon

You will find a traditional cream tea in many places, particularly in the southern and western counties of England, but their spiritual home is in Devon.


Because Devon is where they make the best clotted cream, and real cream teas serve this and not just whipped up double cream.

3. Visit Blenheim Palace

Visit Blenheim Palace

As well as being the ancestral home of the Dukes of Marlborough, a World Heritage Site and one of the best examples of a country house in England, Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire is the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill.

In the millennium poll, Churchill was voted the β€œGreatest Ever Briton,” so a kind of pilgrimage to his home is one of the most patriotic things to do in the UK before you die.

Even without the Churchill connection, the house and gardens are a grand day out.
