The London Underground

big ben?

Canterbury Cathedral

Lake District

cliche 'Lundon'

Chesil Beach

Duxford Museum

Wembley

How old are the tourists you're imagining? 80?

York!

London and Edinburgh.

My american friends loved Edinburgh.

Get hold of a book called "******** to Alton Towers" it's full of typically british days out like the Lawnmower Musuem and Gnome World...

Lake District!

you've never been to Canterbury then, actual packed everyday with tourists, mostly foreign school trips.

the destinations aren't for everyone, I went off key to add variety rather than the usual places

but hey you're the troller

alton towers :-D

Nuneaton and Bedworth. Two of the loveliest towns in the Midlands.

Seriously though, it has to be the Lake District.

I like Wookie Hole and Cheddar Gorge, also Stonehenge when it wasn't barracaded!

I have never been to the Eden project would like to do that.

Also Castles are lovely... Leeds Castle is very pretty, (but not in Leeds it's in Kent)

Windsor is very nice, you could spend a day looking at Windsor castle and then going down by the river strolling along, and having an ice cream. Then spend the night in a hotel and go off to Legoland the day after.

Bodiam Castle is very picturesque too, though I don't think you'd spend a whole day here - I think you could then go down to the coast for the rest of the day.

I know there's loads more places worth visiting

take them to loch lomond for a BBQ


in fact dont bother, i imagine myself sitting by the loch having a bbq on a summers evening. Then when summer finally comes i go and get eaten alive by midgies and get my trainers dirty.

its sh*t.

For me it would have to be late night binge drinking, drunk women throwing up after downing too much alcohol, drunk men having punch ups... oh and dont forget the Chavs doing doughnuts in there souped up Novas and people urinating up against shop windows ! Any town after 12:00 usually does it... its great for the tourists !

Chatsworth House and gardens are beautiful, Sherwood Forest and Sherwood Pines have amazing walks, York has some beautiful buildings and the Yorkshire dales are breathtaking.

"very rare sight"

lake district, kc stadium

London, Stonehenge, Bath, Cornwall and Eden Project - lots of lovely fishing villages etc, Loch Ness and some of the Scottish Highlands/Edinbury or Glasgow, discover Northern Ireland too, could take in quite a lot in couple of days there.

nearest KFC mmm

Yes I liked seeing the Giants Causeway and reading the story behind it.... WHilst on that trip we also went to a hill where you stopped at the bottom, let off the handbrake and appeared to be goign backwards UP the hill... obviously an optical illusion, but a bit of fun too!

take them to see stuff out of London.sadly most tourists never see the real UK

nothing uk sucks haha

Hampton cour palace and the gardens. It's right on the river Thames so could also walk along it or even better get a boat trip from there.
Never been but i imagine Buckingham Palace and then also Windsor castle. Again right by the river and lots of nice pubs around to have a traditional english lunch/dinner

Good call - there really is so much to see in London.

It really is the 'real UK', with the best of this country's art, theatres, music venues and the best transport system.

Bristol is nice too.

Brighton ... when it's sunny.

Definitely The Lake District and preferably with an overnight stay at Black Sail Youth Hostel.

It completely depends on what they're into.

Are they young or old?
Do they like andrelin rush or prefer something a bit more intimate?

Morar Beach and Mallaig.

whats with this "real UK" malarkey? The whole of the UK has a lot to offer, its a shame that many overseas visitors only get to see London and surrounding areas.
