The Best Places to Visit in the UK

The Best Places to Visit in the UK

Overseas healthcare workers migrating to the UK will be able to explore a number of beautiful places, from the vibrant and energetic London to the honey-coloured towns in the Cotswolds.

We provide a simple guide to five of the best places to visit in the UK after accepting your new healthcare role in the NHS.


Yorkshire boasts three national parks, a wild and rugged coastline, and exquisite Victorian architecture, with preserved cobble streets and mills of the World Heritage Site of Saltaire.

Food and drink are worth shouting about compared to other destinations across the UK, with more Michelin-starred restaurants than anywhere else bar London. Around 40 million visitors now travel to Yorkshire every year for heritage-related tourism alone.


The remarkable, honey-coloured towns and villages of the Cotswolds are characterised by gentle dynamism, lively galleries, vibrant festivals and museums. Covering nearly 800 square miles across five counties, the rolling hills is the biggest of the 38 areas of outstanding natural beauty in England and Wales.


Magnificent beaches are a major selling point in Devon. People flock to this popular destination to indulge in the rich larder of food, from lamb, venison, pheasant, pork and seafood to the county’s farmers’ markets selling delicious cider, apple juice, cheese and ice cream.


People pour into the capital every year. London is a thriving metropolis, with a certain buzz and energy, that is home to new skyscrapers, and new areas such as the Embassy Quarter and Battersea Power Station.

It has a constantly changing landscape of restaurants, bars and theatres. Spaces such as the British Museum, the Royal National Theatre and Tate galleries, are just a handful of exciting places to visit.


Bath is a classic, historic city that is surrounded by Georgian crescents and terraces spread over a green and hilly bowl. It has a fascinating history, from the Roman baths to the life and times of one-time resident Jane Austen.

Its state-of-the-art Thermae Bath Spa complex, which opened in 2006, allows visitors the opportunity to bathe in the hot, mineral-rich spring-waters like the Romans did 2,000 years ago.
