Next year is shaping up to be a great year to visit the UK.
With music festivals, flower shows and football finals are all happening in 2013, here’s some inspiration to help get your travel plans organised if you’re thinking of venturing to the UK.
The Chelsea Flower Show
The Chelsea Flower Show is an annual event, but if you were ever going to attend then what better year then the 2013 centenary?
Sponsors Interflora have florists in Liverpool, Edinburgh, Newcastle and all major cities across the country standing by to prepare the biggest display yet to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of this esteemed horticultural event.
Green-fingered types and gardening novices alike will appreciate the wondrous varieties of flowers on display, with some of the types of flowers available from sites like interflora.co.uk
The UEFA Champions League final
The UEFA Champions League final takes place at Wembley once again next year for a record seventh time.
The runaway success of the 2011 final has led UEFA to select England’s capital as the host city once again, a must-see event for all football fans.
Will Chelsea retain the title or can Barcelona wrest it from them? It’s all to play for at this stage, but no matter which teams make the final it’s bound to be an exciting game.
Music festivals galore
Music festivals have a long tradition in the UK, and 2013 promises to see some of the best bands showcasing their music up and down the country.
Glastonbury may have sold out in a record one hour and forty minutes this year, but there are hundreds of others taking place. Huge events such as T in the Park in Scotland and Download in Leicestershire offer up headline acts including Iron Maiden.
For those who prefer a more relaxed, folksy atmosphere there are plenty of more intimate events – try Kendal Calling for the perfect mix of big-name bands and woodland spirit.
