If museums are not your cup of tea
It is no secret that the United Kingdom is known for its palaces, museums and tea shops, but there is always more than meets the eye. More than 37 million tourists visited the United Kingdom in 2016, and it is understandable that different activities cater to different people. If you are one of those who prefer to enjoy the non-traditional ways of leisure, then this article will really be up your alley.
Camden Town, London
Camden is probably one of the best hidden jewels of London. It is known among people for its markets. Every week you can find books, food, clothes, and jewellery there, and it is an amazing tourist attraction on the weekends because the market is booming. Camden can be called the heart and soul of the alternative culture, as its residents are usually fans of tattoo parlours and piercings, but do not let that scare you from visiting this melting pot of cultures. Freedom of expression in fashion is so evident in Camden that it will make you want to run back to the local market and buy something with extremely bright colours. Multicultural cuisine will amaze you and you will want to turn your life around 180 degrees.
Casinos for a different night out
United Kingdom is very diverse not only in cultures, but also in casinos. If gambling is something that you do on your free time, then wait no more and book a flight to any major city here and prepare to be amazed by the variety of casinos. Everything from sports betting to roulette is waiting for you! For example, if you are just starting to get involved in the life of poker, do not be afraid because many people have learned poker rules here, and so can you. Gambling age in the United Kingdom is 18, and that makes it even easier to enjoy all possibilities that this activity has to offer. A lot of casinos have a free entrance, and it just shows that they are waiting for you with open arms and ready to help you have a night that you will not forget.
Movie and TV tours
Have you ever wanted to feel like one of the main characters in famous movies and TV shows? Well, now you can do that in the United Kingdom. For example, Harry Potter tours show you the Kings Cross Station, which has the platform 9 ¾ sign, Oxford, which was used for filming Hogwarts, and even the entrance of the Ministry of Magic. The amazing world of magic has never been closer. On the other hand, if you prefer something like Sherlock Holmes, wait no more, come and register for a tour which includes 221b Baker street, St Bart‘s Hospital, and other places which were crucial locations. There is something for everyone, so just pick your favourite movie or TV show and start planning which universe you want to feel like a part of.
