Whether you are looking for new themes for a really instagrammable location, or would like to update your blog hunting down the hidden gems of Britain, you will certainly have to add the below four cities to your travel bucket list.
There is something so stunning about Edinburgh; the city has a unique feel about it, and you can find some amazing spots to take photos from, such as Calton Hill.

Try to visit the National Museum of Scotland and go on a walking tour, so you can fully appreciate the magnificence of the city and the architecture of Edinburgh Castle.
For many people, Liverpool is not the ideal destination. While it still has a reputation of a large industrial city, it is in fact full of culture. There are some amazing free and paid museums, great theatres to choose from, and great public transport that allows you to explore the Wirral Peninsula and the beaches. Visit the Liverpool Docks, soak in the atmosphere, and book a table at one of the traditional authentic restaurants.
Voted one of the best places to live in Britain, Salisbury has put a lot of effort in improving its image and tourist facilities. Apart from the magnificent cathedral, you will be able to take a tour to Stonehenge, go on a walking tour, or take part in one of the local cultural events. This place is a hidden gem with loads of arisan shops and amazing restaurants to enjoy. Perfect for a city break.
