David Beckham Recommends Top Attractions in UK

As the Olympic Torch winds its way through Britain en route to London (next month!), sports icon David Beckham recently shared the top places across the UK that he wants to visit with his family.

Beckham’s top ten leads the upgrade of VisitBritain’s ‘Best of Britain’ app, which was launched earlier this year to inform and inspire the Games spectators and visitors to Britain this summer. New content on the app includes recommendations, accommodation and entertainment options provided by the national tourism agency. (Note: The app is only available on certain Samsung devices, as Samsung is partnered with VisitBritain to promote the Games. But even if your clients can't download the app itself, we say the recommendations are still good advice!)

Beckham’s suggestions:

Take a tour of Buckingham Palace;

Experience some real East London food at Tony Lane’s Pie & Mash shop;

Go on a stadium tour of Old Trafford and the new Wembley;

Grab some fresh air at one of the Royal Parks like Hyde, The Regent’s or Richmond;

Play a round of golf at St Andrews;

Go shopping at Manchester’s Northern Quarter, or markets like Camden, Portobello or Spitalfields;

Take the kids to Thorpe Park or on the Harry Potter tour;

Don’t miss London’s theatre scene and shows like War Horse or Jersey Boys;

Eat at Ceconnis or NOPI in London;

Go for a walk in the countryside and stop off at a pub along the way.
