If there’s one thing we excel at as a nation, other than being far too polite to people invading our personal space on public transport… It’s partying.
And we all know that in cities like London, Manchester, Leeds, Brighton and Glasgow we have some of the greatest party towns in the world. But which other UK cities know how to throw a shindig but don’t get the recognition they deserve?
Well, lucky for you we’ve pulled together a list of the top 10 underrated UK party cities to give you all the info.
Listen, any city that has a street with the name ‘Whip-Ma-Whop-Ma-Gate’ is always going to be worth getting your party rags on for. Local folklore suggests that there are enough pubs in York for every day of the year, and if that doesn’t sound like a challenge we’ll eat our hat.
Although Brighton pretty much holds the party crown for the south coast, there are some serious fun times going on just down the road in Southampton. It’s known for its nautical history so there is really no excuse for not pushing the boat out when you visit. Boat, get it? BOAT!
It might be the place where Tim Westwood grew up but don’t let that put you off; Norwich is a real party hub for eastern England. Loads of great bars, a bunch of lovely pubs and a handful of awesome nightclubs. And Hugh Jackman is a fan of Norwich City FC. Obviously.
The buildings in Aberdeen might be grey but the nightlife is anything but, thanks to some of the finest bars, pubs and live music venues this side of the north pole. And as if all that wasn’t enough, it’s also a great place to watch the northern lights. Dazzling.
Forget what you’ve heard, Stoke is a city that knows how to party hard. It’s not the birthplace of rave culture for nothing you know. These days Stoke has plenty to offer including some of the swankiest bars in the Midlands (not to mention some top class cuisine).
Some people see Plymouth as nothing more as a gateway to the South West, but those people are FOOLS. It’s got an array of awesome nightlife spots and some of the best chilling areas in the UK (we’re looking at you Plymouth Hoe).
You might have noticed that all the cities on this list have at least one Revolution bar. Which, if you ask us, is a lovely coincidence and definitely not intended all along.
But if you want to really explore these underrated cities and their crazy party venues for yourself?
It’s a no-brainer. Start at Revolution, book your table now.
