Consider Salisbury as got the Cathedral, Magna Carta and Stonehenge there as well as easy access to Southampton and Bournemouth.

there are lots of places which would be good to have a hostel, but you have to decide what kind of group you want to appeal to. you could appeal to ages 16-25, the younger holiday makers trying to have a cheap but fun holiday with mates, or for older people as well, like families etc.

you could appeal to both.

but the younger generations like the beach, clubs, pubs and shops and so therefore you should pick somewhere in Southern England such as Newquay - which is an up and coming tourist place (so if you decide to get something there, do it quick, land prices are likely to raise extremely quickly as it is becoming one of the UK's biggest tourist area!) Brighton, Bournemouth, Torquay, Cornwall. these places are always desirable for the young clubbers.

however, for families, or anyone, maybe places where there is plenty of historical interest, i.e. York, bath etc etc

walkers like places say in the Cotswolds (cotswold way), lake districts, coastal paths, penine way, yorkshire moors.

i hope this is helpful!

just decide what kind of people you want to appeal to!!

Hi, snowdonia in north wales is one of the most if not the most beautiful place in britain. As for cities Newcastle upon Tyne and Leeds are starting to develop into real cultural hotspots.

I'm told York is good. There's loads to see. Decided its about time i went so I'm going to take myself up one weekend soon.

And Chester is lovely- a very nice old roman town.

York certainly is a beautiful city. Go there early, because there's lots to see. Have a taste of the Yorkshire pudding and don't forget to go on one of the ghost hunts at night. They are really cool!
Returning to the original topic of this thread: as one of the few non-Brits posting a reply here, I would recommend starting a hostel in Oxford. Beautiful city with other attractions, such as Bath and Stratford, nearby. Should be an excellent location. I wouldn't bother about starting a hostel in cities like Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham. There really is not much to see, though nightlife is excellent.
Why not a theme-hostel in Torquay? I heard the hotel where Fawlty Towers was set, burnt down. Correct? I wonder whether people would actually go there for the service or for the beach.
