I live now in Northern Ireland and visited some of its interesting towns, including the Republic of Ireland. Visit Belfast and dont forget to see the Giant's Causeway - UNESCO Heritage site. In Dublin, there are interesting places to see and do just within the city centre, including the Guinness Store. Visit my website and you find some of other places in Ireland. On the other hand, if you are planning to visit Scotland, Edinburgh and Glasgow not to be missed! Good luck!

I think you might get a bit bored spending a month in Southampton, unless there's a specific reason for you going there (family/work/whatever). Swansea isn't somewhere I'd go as a tourist either.

You've missed out the fantastic countryside - Snowdonia, the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in Wales; Exmoor, Dartmoor, the Peak District and the Lake District in England; and last, but most, the Scottish Highlands.

Assuming I had 6 weeks to travel around, I'd probably go
London (4 days) ->
Brighton (2 days) ->
the West Country (Salisbury, then on to Exmoor - 5 days total) ->
Bristol (1 day) ->
Cardiff (1 day)->
Brecon Beacons (2 days)->
Snowdonia (4 days)->
Manchester or Liverpool (2 days)->
The Lake District (4 days)->
Glasgow (2 days)->
The Highlands and Islands (10 days)->
Edinburgh (2 days)->
Newcastle (1 day)->
Durham (1 day)->
York (1 day)->
London

I just browsed some of your pics, Rey, and I've gone all nostalgic! Such beautiful photos of Northern Ireland you've taken. We're hoping to go back sometime next summer--must get on that!
