May is a popular month, not just because we start to feel as if summer might be round the corner, but also because we get two extra days off to enjoy it!

If you’re keen to get out and explore this Bank Holiday, why not take a day trip and check out some of the great places to visit throughout the UK. Below is a pick of the Trusted Dealers’ top five favourite cities to visit this Bank Holiday.

Liverpool

Liverpool is often referred to as the culture capital of the North and it’s not difficult to see why – home to one of the most famous bands of all time, The Beatles, this city is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere. Your first port of call has to be a stop at Beatles Story, a unique visitor attraction that transports you on an enlightening journey into the culture and music of the Beatles. If you fancy a spot of shopping, why not visit Liverpool One which contains 160 famous high street stores, ultra-hip fashion brands, cool independent boutiques and cafés and restaurants. Visit the country’s largest Cathedral to discover awesome views and architecture or visit the Liverpool Museum, a new landmark building at the Pier Head, at the core of the World Heritage Site on Liverpool’s famous waterfront.

Kent: Leeds Castle and Canterbury Cathedral

Spend a full day discovering the treasures of Kent – Leeds Castle and Canterbury Cathedral. Leeds Castle was described by Lord Conway as ‘the loveliest castle in the world’ and is set in the middle of a natural lake surrounded by 500 acres of parkland and gardens. Explore the castle grounds where you will discover ‘Lady Baillie Garden’ with views over the lake, and aviary and a maze. Continue on to the magnificent Canterbury Cathedral, the most important church within the worldwide Angelican faith with its central ‘Bell Harry Tower dating back to 1498 and the crypt to the 11th century. Make sure you save some time to explore the intriguing narrow streets of Canterbury.

Oxford and Cambridge

Visit two of the most famous university towns in England. Begin your day in Oxford, the city of Dreaming Spires whose hushed courtyards have inspired generations of scholars to include Bill Clinton, Lewis Carroll, C.S Lewis and the immortal J.R.R. Tolkein author of ‘Lord of the Rings’. Take a walking tour to visit Christ Church where some of the Harry Potter scenes were filmed, the Bodleian Library and the picture-perfect college courtyards for which Oxford is famous. Arrive in Cambridge to discover a wonderful mixture of the everyday and the extraordinary – a living city that has shaped history and today reflects the best of historic and contemporary life.

Edinburgh

Head to Edinburgh, known as The Royal City and the world’s festival capital. Board an open-top sightseeing bus to get a bird’s eye view of this majestic city – the hop on ticket allows you to get on and off as often as you like. Take in the old town quarter, the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre, the gloriously intricate Scott Monument, the Palace of Holyrood House and the brand new Scottish Parliament building. Wander through the cobbled streets or stroll along Princes Street to gain access to a plethora of shops selling as much tartan, whisky and shortbreads as you could wish for! Finish off your day with a trip to the city’s most famous attraction, Edinburgh Castle.
