Best places to see in United Kingdom

St James' Park
Stadiums and arenas
Who said black and white was a thing of the past? The city’s football stadium is a star player in Newcastle’s line up. Follow the crowds of black and white football strips on match day as they stream from the city centre towards the stadium. If you’re not around to see the team play you can still take a peek behind the scenes, with stadium tours available daily.

Old Trafford
Stadiums and arenas
The “Theatre of Dreams” has been making fans dreams a reality here for years. Manchester United has become one of the most popular football clubs in the world, and their titles and trophies are held at an onsite museum. Whether you’re planning to see a match or simply take a stadium tour, a visit here is an absolute must (unless you’re a Manchester City fan!).
Accommodation near Old Trafford
The River Irwell
Landmarks
The lifeblood of the city, the history of the River Irwell is as deep as the water itself – and remains a traditional icon for the city. Marking the natural boundary between Manchester and Salford, its banks are dotted with waterside bars, restaurants and spots to picnic, fish, swim or just watch the world float by.

Wollaton Hall and Park
Museums
Ever checked out a real-life Bat-lair? This stunning stately home was featured in Hollywood director Christopher Nolan’s series of Batman films, making an appearance as Batman’s (aka Bruce Wayne’s) mansion. There’s a stunningly filmic quality to the grand Renaissance façade, pristine lawns, and ample grounds peppered with resident deer and peacocks.
Accommodation near Wollaton Hall and Park
Sherwood Forest
Landmarks
Robin Hood – fact or fiction? This mediaeval folk hero is the stuff of legend. He's synonymous with Sherwood Forest, his iconic hideout. As you stroll through the ferns, picture the Merry Men lurking in the undergrowth, poised to ambush any passing ne’er-do-wells. To really get into the spirit, what better way of exploring Robin’s old haunt than on horseback?
Accommodation near Sherwood Forest
Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art
Galleries
If you like to get inside the head of the artist then prepare for a mind-bending experience. The BALTIC is the region’s home of quirk and eccentricity. Stimulate your senses, step onto the canvas or be part of the art. If the gallery’s exhibitions aren’t inspiring enough, check out the cityscape from the 6th floor roof terrace or drink in the views at Six restaurant.
