The UK’s Cheapest Nights Out

At this time of year you need to save money where you can. But that doesn’t mean you should sacrifice your social life. Luckily there are plenty of places to visit in the UK which offer plenty at relatively little expense. These are great places for short breaks, days out and big nights out.

Nottingham, with its universities, proximity to many other cities and breadth of things to do is a great place to go if you are looking to please a number of people at once. Based on the findings, Nottingham is said to be the cheapest place to book an overnight break with drinks, an evening meal and taxi fares all considered.

Wales’ capital hosts great sporting events, lively night life and many historic attractions to take in. There is a great variety of night spots in Cardiff for fans of chart music and dance as well as rock and indie. Clubs such as Club Metropolitan and Live Lounge are renowned for their cheap and cheerful drink offers.

With it’s rich musical heritage and cultural importance (the Yorkshire city also has a keen film-making tradition) Sheffield is a vibrant and interesting city to visit. As is the case with all these inexpensive places it has a large student population which means you will not find it hard to find great drinks offers.

Yorkshire’s largest city is a great place for cheap places to eat as well as drink. Eating establishments such as Neon Cactus and Giraffe are well worth a visit while bars such as Brooklyn and Milo’s often run good drink offers.

There’s much variety in Bristol which means you can just as easily find somewhere very cheap as somewhere incredibly expensive (especially if you are in the Clifton area). And when it comes to culture, there are not many cities outside of London which rival the place on the River Avon.

Like Nottingham, Birmingham has the benefit of being in such a central location that it is easily accessed from many places in the country. For cheap drinks, there is the Tunnel Club, Jewellery Quarter and Summer Row and to eat, Asha’s, Athens and Brasshouse on Broad Street should satisfy your stomach while leaving a few notes in your pocket.

There’s much more to the Merseyside city than The Beatles. With a number of universities and a thriving student population you are never far from a cheap place to drink in Liverpool’s compact city centre.

If you can survive the cold (the locals are renowned for braving the Baltic conditions in little-to-no clothing but this is not recommended) you are almost guaranteed a good night out in Newcastle. Avoid the Bigg Market and head to some of the student bar – students in Newcastle come up in surveys as among the most satisfied with their social lives.

North of the border Glasgow beats it’s pricey neighbour Edinburgh hands-down in the cheap stakes. There’s plenty in the way of gig listings, restaurants and bars to enjoy without breaking the bank.
