    I thought the town of Bath was very nice. Im from the US and did a 10 day bus tour from London to Scotland back to London it was all amazing

    You’ve probably never been to Cambridge ! Have you ?

    You make the UK sound so big!🇬🇧 It actually looks small on the map! I’m from America🇺🇸 some of our states are bigger than the UK🇬🇧

    I went to Edinburgh and it looked like I was in Harry Potter because it’s more hogwartsy🤗♥️

    LOL You two crack me up. London is so big, its 1.12 sq miles (2.9 sq km) Wait until you going to NYC it’s 302.6 sq miles (784 sq km). I’m from what is called Upstate NY (Syracuse). It’s called that because if you say your from NY everyone first thinks of NYC. There is so much more than the city. Upstate is absolutely beautiful. Mature trees and mountains.

    I love that the phrase "Back in the day" means something vastly different for a Brit than for an American.

    Guernsey/jersey channel islands

  8. Taylor Hammond on January 26, 2020 at 11:13 pm

    You didn’t mention Cornwall and that’s one of the best places xxx

  9. David Johnson on January 26, 2020 at 11:14 pm

    I love you two and binge watched your channel in preparation for my wife and I going on holiday in the UK. We went to Aberffraw on the isle of Anglesey in Wales. What a FANTASTIC time. We were able to blend in with the locals because of y’all’s help 😊. Seriously a lot of your tips helped us not act like typical Americans and made our vacations very enjoyable. Thanks and keep the vids coming.

    Slowly catching up on your videos– really enjoying them! For a Jane Austen lover, Brighton (only 1 hour from London!), Bournemouth, Weymouth (and Bath)… I would love to visit these. Of course, I love Stratford-on-Avon. Didn’t know about Winchester being the capital. So much to see!!! Also would love to visit Scotland. Could you make a video on your recommended literary-related destinations?

  11. Libby Norris on January 26, 2020 at 11:16 pm

    That was great!

  12. zupermaus1 on January 26, 2020 at 11:17 pm

    Hadrians Wall, Lake District, Scottish Highlands and Islands, Bath, Oxford (not Cambridge, it’s a trap) Northumberland Coast, Peak District, West Country, Channel Islands, Dartmoor, Cotswolds, Chilterns. The big secrets: Gower Peninsular, Pembrokeshire, Northern Ireland’s loughs, Isles of Scilly, the Marches, Bedruthran Rocks, Chester, Rye, Dungeness.

  13. Jon O on January 26, 2020 at 11:18 pm

    Bath, Chester, Lake Country, York etc. were all nice places to visit.

  14. Michael Lumb on January 26, 2020 at 11:20 pm

    I feel like you guys use the word “holiday” like we would use “vacation” A holiday is typically just like Christmas or Easter or Thanksgiving .. St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday haha Valentine’s Day.. things like that

  15. Ranjit Singh on January 26, 2020 at 11:20 pm

    I like to visit London one town see on YouTube bath Oxford

  16. Timmy Stauffer on January 26, 2020 at 11:20 pm

    Where would Joel go with his brother? What about disability access in these spots?

  17. Shannon Wittman on January 26, 2020 at 11:24 pm

    Have you both ever been to Darbyshire? Of "Pride & Prejudice" fame (Jane Austin). Being a Yank, I don’t know much about it except I guess its countryside. My beautiful friend and actress, Charlie Welsh (Manchester), told me it isn’t fictional and does exist (much to my delight). BTW … what does the "sterling" in your money mean?

  18. Sabrina Riccardi on January 26, 2020 at 11:24 pm

    Please so a travel vlog

  19. Roberto Petrazzuolo on January 26, 2020 at 11:26 pm

    I would so much LOVE to meet you!!!

  20. Luna Seraphina on January 26, 2020 at 11:29 pm

    OMG!! Lol, I went to Hawes Primary School as a child (definitely not as an adult hehehe) which is just down the road from the Wensleydale Cheese Factory. Needless to say – I still receive grommitty comments now, and I live in London! How about the Lake District?

  21. Chandrima Samanta on January 26, 2020 at 11:29 pm

    York is one more option I would love to recommend.

  22. Samantha Bwire on January 26, 2020 at 11:30 pm

    When I was in London with Performing arts class to watch Chicago we were in small groups and we got free samples of food more near Chinatown and where the restaurants were.

  23. Poppy Ray on January 26, 2020 at 11:31 pm

    You forgot butlins lol

  24. Roberto Petrazzuolo on January 26, 2020 at 11:31 pm

    I would like to add Liverpool, which is just BRILLIANT, and lovely Chester,which is ….quintessential England 😉

  25. Dobo Is my name on January 26, 2020 at 11:31 pm

    Yorkshire is an absolutely beautiful place ranging from vast rural countrysides to beautiful historical cities

  26. Felix Gregorio on January 26, 2020 at 11:32 pm

    Hi guys, although you both sound and look lovely it’s still is a channel about places people can visit, so I’m sorry to say, I’m halfway through this video, and am switching off. For the length of the video I was expecting to see, at least, a couple of those cities you mentioned.
    Perhaps next time??

  27. Samantha Bwire on January 26, 2020 at 11:32 pm

    I went to Blackpool last year and it was nice I would go again!!! I loved the water park, zoo, seaside and the theme park I went on all the scary rides! 😂❤️🤗✨💓

  28. quirkyvero on January 26, 2020 at 11:34 pm

    I went to York for a few days last year. It is beautiful and quaint. Things not to miss are the Minster Cathedral, the National Railway museum, the Shambles and the very popular Bettys Cafe which has amazing afternoon tea. It is 2 hours train from London. There is a great little pub called Golden Fleece which I would strongly recommend as well.

  29. Sah. B. on January 26, 2020 at 11:34 pm

    Yeah, hindsight—don’t go to Paris.

  30. Vicky Taylor on January 26, 2020 at 11:37 pm

    Oxford is good too.

  31. K on January 26, 2020 at 11:37 pm

    Very poor content.You guys are not cut out to be on Youtube.Sorry, but that is the truth.

  32. dancing with my hands on January 26, 2020 at 11:37 pm

    Great advice video! Made me want to visit every place you mentioned!! Oh love the cottage from The Holiday too! And Lia your hair looks I beautiful!! Love both of you gorgeous people!! 😘

  33. ** on January 26, 2020 at 11:38 pm

    I absolutely expected this video to be about national holidays like Guy Fox day. I forgot that y’all also use the word "holiday" for what we in the U.S refer to as a vacation. Lol

  34. Dottie Thomas on January 26, 2020 at 11:40 pm

    did you do the duke of Edinburgh award. if so how did you find it

  35. MICHAEL GOLD on January 26, 2020 at 11:40 pm

    Went to Bath last year. Amazing! Not just the Baths (which are worth doing once) but also the Georgian architecture and the Cathedral are awesome.

  36. Holly Parker on January 26, 2020 at 11:41 pm

    You should totally check out the Isle of Wight, I live here and I love it!

  37. Nancy O'Malley on January 26, 2020 at 11:42 pm

    Right Off, I thought your video was going to be about holidays as in Christmas, Easter, etc-I forgot that the British say ‘holiday’ when they mean ‘vacation’ -That’s my American brain at work-DUH!

  38. Good luck everyone on January 26, 2020 at 11:43 pm

    You are a nice couple but the vid is a bit lacking in site visits 🤔
    Get out there with your camera guys

  39. D M Herzer on January 26, 2020 at 11:44 pm

    The UK has changed so much since I visited. Here are some suggestions for your “travel series”; Cornwall, Penzance, Liverpool, The Lake District, Coventry, Leeds, Oxford & Cambridge, Bath, Dover. When I win a multi-million dollar lottery I will visit again.

  40. Jennifer Lawrence on January 26, 2020 at 11:45 pm

    Loved my trip to England..cant wait to come back. Like more travel tips

  41. bryn mordey on January 26, 2020 at 11:46 pm

    Defo go around the UK. Come up here to the North East

  42. crunchy almondbutter on January 26, 2020 at 11:47 pm

    I can finally say that I have lived! haha! We had *the* best time in the UK. Landed in London, spent time there, off to Cardiff and lots of places in Wales for a good few days, over the ferry to S. Ireland (we *had* to drive the Ring of Kerry: talk about green!), Dublin (Guiness Factory 😉 ), and a few more days in smaller towns, back over the ferry to Edinburgh (sadly, as far north as our tour took us but certainly loved it beyond words!), down through the rest of England (basically, the middle back to London. Would love to go to Brighton next time!). So, Stratford-Upon-Avon, which was so very quaint, the Cotswolds (those thatched houses!), having a cream tea there and down through Manchester back to London. A long trip that we will never forget. Priceless! So very obsessed with the UK, which is why we chose this way to travel, and skipped Paris. 😉 No desire! Xx

  43. heidi gibbons on January 26, 2020 at 11:47 pm

    Oh please do a travel episode or 100! You could show us around!

  44. Joyce Smythe-Stearns on January 26, 2020 at 11:48 pm

    The difference between a town & a city is the size. Smallest to largest: hamlet, village, town, city.

  45. MICHAEL GOLD on January 26, 2020 at 11:49 pm

    If you call a vacation a "holiday" then what do you call a holiday (like Christmas)?

  46. Peg Y on January 26, 2020 at 11:52 pm

    A trip to the Yorkshire Dales is on my bucket list.

  47. karl young on January 26, 2020 at 11:53 pm
