London is one of the most historic, famous and major cities of the world.

Then, get an eerie feeling all over by indulging in a Jack the Ripper tour. Arguably the most famous serial killer of all time, visit the places where his victims were found in the city’s East End.
The city is most famous for 2 things: Liverpool Football Club and the birthplace of The Beatles. If you’re a football fan, you must visit Anfield, the home of Liverpool F.C.

You could also sneak in a visit to Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields. As for Liverpool hotels, you could stay in the Marriott Hotel Queen Square, which is close to some famous Beatles sites.
Southampton boasts one of the best
art galleries outside the capital. It’s also home to a couple of splendid theatres to get your cultural fill. The city is also regarded as somewhat of a cruise capital of Northern Europe and it is from here that many people boarded the ill-fated Titanic more than 100 years ago.
