Share this:

Here at HELLO! Online we've trawled through the guidebooks and celebrity spottings to come up with the best picking of great places to visit in Britain. On our must-visit list is a swish champagne bar in Glasgow's boutique Malmaison hotel. And London's chic Chinese restaurant Hakkasan – a favourite with a host of royals and stars including Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, fashionista Alexa Chung, songstress Rita Ora and gorgeous Kelly Brook. Party the night away in Manchester's exclusive nightclub Panacea, where you'll bump into TV stars and football players. Or if it's Britain's beautiful countryside you're after, go glamping – a stylish version of camping – like the TOWIE cast in Epping Forest. Travel across Great Britain with our guide to the country's treasures – indoors and out – and some celebrity-spotting while you're at it...


Dinner at HakkasanIts dark, basement spot tucked away on a side street off Oxford Street makes Hakkasan perfect for A-listers. Head here for mouth-watering Chinese food in a chic 1930s Shanghai setting or glamorous cocktails at the slinky bar. Princess Beatrice helped her sister Princess Eugenie celebrate her 22nd birthday here, and Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, songstress Rita Ora and fashionista Alexa Chung have all been spotted in an evening of indulgence.

Stroll the British coast in Anglesey, North WalesThe quiet island of Anglesey in North Wales was the first home to Prince William and Kate, who chose to start married life in their five-bedroom cottage there. Stroll along the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path, which lies in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, to see breathtaking sea views and cross dunes, salt-marsh, foreshore, cliffs and a few small pockets of woodland.

Party the night away at Manchester nightclub PanaceaJoin TV soap stars and footballers at Manchester's exclusive celebrity nightclub Panacea. Take up one of the five private booths – Havana, Marrakech, Milan, Tokyo and Rio – to be pampered with table service, share a board of canapé nibbles and sip at yummy cocktails. With unique names like 'lady in red', 'true romance', 'after midnight' and 'gold digger', you'll have lots of fun choosing what to try next at this trendy nightspot. Former TOWIE star Mark Wright was recently spotted partying at Panacea with his girlfriend, brunette beauty and Coronation Street star, Michelle Keegan.

Unwind with North-London celebrities on Primrose Hill Head to the upmarket London suburb Primrose Hill for its superb views of London, a firm favourite of celebrities like Jamie Oliver, Kate Moss and Jude Law. Dad David Beckham went straight to Primrose Hill for some sledging on the slopes with his eldest son Brooklyn when he had just relocated to London from LA with wife Victoria and their four children.
