5Sure. By the way, i'm going to make an Inter Rail, so i'm probably going to ask similar questions to this one on other "Europe" topics, asking people to say their favorite places in each country. I'm so excited!
Thanks for your help!

7Scotland (you can't say Edinburgh or Glasgow) - Inchcailloch on Loch Lomond, or really all of Loch Tay.
England (you can't say London) - Bournemouth, although that could be because I have family there I rarely see rather than it being inherently excellent.
Wales - I have never been.
Ireland - Dublin.
Northern Ireland - Travelled fairly well but too young to draw any reasonable conclusions.

After last night there is yet another area to see, or avoid - as the case may be.

13I know, great new tourist sightseeing opportunity.
And on your right you have a burnt out Vauxhall, still smouldering ladies and gentlemen. On the left you have a troublemaker who's going to pop down to the local catholic church and start playing loyalist tunes to incite another riot. Later on in the tour ladies and gentlemen, we'll go past the Europa hotel, which is the most bombed hotel in the world.
