My experience in the UK

England is the home country of my boyfriend, so we’ve spent quite a bit of time exploring different destinations in the country.

My favorite British city is London; we visit yearly for the vegan food and shows. However, England has much more to offer beyond its capital. Bristol‘s vibrant arts scene and Liverpool‘s musical heritage provide compelling reasons to explore further.
