The name “United Kingdom” sounds awfully grand, yes? This once-mighty empire has shrunk significantly since its peak, but still claims some of the most popular tourist destinations on earth – including the great city of London. And though the size of the empire might not be as great as it once was, the strength of its currency just seems to be going up. That makes finding cheap hotels in the United Kingdom a bit of a challenge.

Whether the concept of “bed and breakfast” was born in the UK is up for debate, but the idea has been taken to new heights in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. So when you are hunting for a cheap hotel in the United Kingdom, remember to keep an eye out for the words “bed and breakfast” – they can be a less expensive option than traditional hotels, and offer much more charm and personality.
