Cardigan in Time Out’s top three Best UK Places to Visit in 2023Cardigan in West Wales has been named by Time Out as one of the Best Places to Visit in the UK in 2023. Time out - the global media and hospitality brand which helps people explore and experience the best of the city - describes the town as the “most underrated” spot in West Wales and gives many reasons for visiting it next year including its overall beauty and “dazzling creative streak”, plethora of independent businesses, renovated Cardigan Castle and “stunning” Guildhall Market. The Other Voices festival in November, a celebration of Celtic creativity and music, is also listed as an extra motive to visit in the autumn. Cardigan is number three on Time Out’s Best Places to Visit in the UK 2023 list. Topping the list for a day trip or longer stay is Eastbourne. Eastbourne’s rising position as an artist and cultural hub - including its hosting of the Turner Prize from next September - secured its top position on the list, along with many other events, along with the independent shops and eateries and music venues, to try in the East Sussex town. Second on the list is Birmingham, which Time Out notes for its “most underrated food scene in the UK” and the return of the Ashes in June next year as some of the key rationale to visit. Manchester is at number four, with the Manchester Museum reopening in February and Factory International’s new arts centre due to open among its many jewels. At number five is Scarborough. The February Dark Skies Festival around the coast and North York Moors, the revival of Scarborough Fair and the town’s independent businesses and local ale scene are given as some of the many motives to visit the area. Other entries on the Best Places to Visit in the UK 2023 list include England’s capital London at number eight and Scotland’s capital Edinburgh at number nine. Huw Oliver, Time Out’s UK Editor explains why the places on the list have made the cut; “Rather than the usual hotspots, we want to highlight places, many of which are ludicrously underrated, which people don’t automatically think to go to but which offer so much. In all of the places on the list, you will find interesting things to see and do, eat and drink during the day and night, a friendly welcome and a community spirit which enables you to connect with locals and really get to know a place. We recommend that you definitely put one or more of these destinations on your list for a day trip or overnight break next year”.To come up with Time Out’s UK Best Places to Visit 2023 list, Time Out’s network of local editors have selected and ranked the destinations based on their current thriving food, drink and arts scene. In addition, it was also taken into consideration for the ranking whether there are also lots of new things to get excited about in the coming year in the chosen places such as new hotels, restaurants, museums or events to put on people’s calendars for 2023.The full list of Time Out’s Best Places to Visit in the UK in 2023 is:1.
