A long Weekend in Glasgow
How many days in Glasgow?Glasgow is a quite small city. Should we stay one, two or three days on-site?You could spend a weekend there to be able to appreciate the city. And three days seems to be the ideal duration! (Excluding transport). Check the trains to Glasgow.Why visit Glasgow?At first glance less attractive than its big sister Edinburgh, Glasgow is a city more suited to "short" stays. More accessible (check the trains to Glasgow), smaller, but just as exotic!Glasgow's "attractions" will appeal to as many people as possible, be it architecture, art or cuisine. There are lots of things to see and do (and eat the famous Haggis )! It is, therefore, an accessible city, on a human scale, pretty, and full of good things. A perfect place to spend a weekend!Popular train routes about Glasgow:London to Glasgow train

Edinburgh Travel: When is the best time to visit Edinburgh
Even though Scotland is a country of legends, its humid and gray climate is not one. The winter (from December to February) is very harsh and the summer (between the end of June and September) particularly rainy even if beautiful days are also expected during this season.The best season to visit Edinburgh would be in spring, between April through June, to be able to take advantage of long and sunny days, and also to avoid the crowd of tourists who invade the Royal Mile and crowd the doors of museums and attractions in July and August.June to August is festival season. If you plan to go there during the festival season (mid-August and early September), consider making reservations well in advance, as the city is crowded.September is also a good time to visit the Scottish capital.Popular UK Destinations:Trains to EdinburghPopular UK Routes by TrainsLondon to Edinburgh

However, Manchester presented itself in its best light when you go there and it is under the sun that you will discover the city, which in a few moments has become a real favorite. Musical cradle of many groups (such as Oasis, The Smiths, Joy Division, Take That, Bee Gees…), the host city of great European teams, Manchester United and Manchester City, shaped by its rich industrial past, Manchester has a thousand faces, Manchester tells hundreds of stories that spread on its walls, in its museums, in its galleries, in its cafes and in its restaurants, in the mouths of Mancunians ... If images of industrial wasteland, abandoned warehouses, Poverty and wasteland come to mind, you will, because the crisis has hit Manchester in a very violent way, but Manchester is much more than that and it shows as soon as you put a step outside. Manchester is undergoing a renaissance and opens its arms to you!A large English city, Manchester city center can be explored very easily on foot, especially under the sun. What a pleasure to stroll through the shopping or residential streets, to explore the different districts of Manchester, ranging from surprises to discoveries.
