Hidden gems

Hidden gems

Dig beneath the surface of a city to find out where the locals eat, drink and have fun. One of the best ways to live like a native is to check out local blogs and newspapers, while keeping an eye on the free magazines handed out, especially in university towns. Consider being led by an official guide on an alternative tour of the city, perhaps taking in its spooky landmarks, its alternative scene or the best music venues. Your tour guide will be an expert in England’s hidden attractions and might be a local musician or maybe even a clairvoyant.
