There’s no question that the United Kingdom is an excellent place for all of you crazy nightlife seekers out there. On my blog, I write a lot about nightlife — so why not talk about the scene of the most visited countries on earth? During my time spent in London last summer, I had a great time bar hopping around Soho, Shoreditch and other lively areas of the city.
If you’re heading to the UK and want to know where to party, or have a stag party, then choosing a destination can be a little tricky. There are loads of great cities in the UK that offer fun nights, but it all comes down to what you’re planning to do on the weekend.
