But when it comes to a place so attraction-filled, figuring out where, exactly, to go can feel downright impossible.

Luckily for you, The Telegraph just released its newest ranking of the best UK cities to visit in 2024, and below, you’ll find out which ones made the cut (keep in mind, in no particular order).

Manchester

Starting off strong, we have Manchester, a city that many consider to be the cultural capital of the North.

And when you get to see the iconic Manchester Town Hall, The Beatles Story Museum, the bustling Northern Quarter, and the Manchester Art Gallery firsthand, you’ll understand just how true that is.

Leeds

Leeds Town Hall

This gorgeous, lively hub in West Yorkshire that has long lived in the shadows of its more famous neighbors is actually an incredible tourist attraction all on its own.

Here, you can explore the historic Leeds Corn Exchange, wander through the breathtaking Roundhay Park (one of Europe’s largest), and browse through Kirkgate Market, where fresh produce and gourmet delights are just waiting to be enjoyed.

Durham

Durham Castle, UK

If you consider yourself a history lover, Durham is just the place for you.

Home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site Cathedral, a gorgeous Old Town, and more museums than you can count, the city promises to take you on a ride of a lifetime.

Liverpool

Whether you know Liverpool as the UNESCO World Heritage City that it is or the birthplace of The Beatles, one thing’s for sure – the iconic city will exceed even your wildest expectations.

So, take this as a sign to pack your bags and visit the legendary Cavern Club, take a walk along the postcard-worthy waterfront, and marvel at the incredible artwork showcased at Tate Liverpool.

Birmingham

England’s second-largest city just so happens to be a haven for art lovers, shopaholics, and foodies from all over the world – in short, a city tripper’s dream.

Here, you’ll get to see one of the most extensive collections of Pre-Raphaelite paintings at the  Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, browse through the artisan workshops and boutiques at the Jewellery Quarter, and enjoy a fantastic meal out at Digbeth Dining Club.

London

Not only has so much already been said and written about London, but the stunning English capital is experiencing such a resurgence with U.S. travelers, that chances are you’ve already either been to or planning to go to the city – and who can blame you?

Between Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, the London Eye, the British Museum, and Covent Garden, there are just so many world-class attractions in the city that you’ll need an ironclad itinerary to get through them all.

Brighton

If a bustling metropolis sounds a bit too chaotic for your taste, Brighton might just be the perfect place for you.

This charming seaside town just off the south coast of England will stun you with its picture-perfect beaches, bohemian vibe, and historic Brighton Pier, a walk along which will definitely make you feel like the lead of your very own movie.

Newcastle

Want someplace that has both incredible nightlife and picturesque views?

Newcastle is the city for you.

Not only are local pubs and traditional food downright legendary, but the city is home to a stunning castle perched atop a hill overlooking River Tyne – talk about jaw-dropping views!

Edinburgh

The list wouldn’t be complete without Scotland’s gorgeous capital, a place so steeped in history and culture that it leaves even the most seasoned travelers at a loss for words.

The cobblestoned streets of the historic Old Town lead you right to the picturesque Grassmarket and Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile is filled with charming boutiques and traditional pubs where your days will be well-spent, and the Writers’ Museum is just a culture lover’s paradise – so, if you haven’t already, book those tickets ASAP.

Bath

Last but certainly not least, we have Bath, a place that, at first sight, might be mistaken for a traditional Georgian hub.

And it’s exactly the one-of-a-kind architecture, Roman baths, and incredible scenery that sets this southwest England gem apart from all the other (admittedly gorgeous) cities we’ve talked about so far.
