The Best Creative Personalised UK Number Plates

Plan the UK road trip of a lifetime with these inspiring number plates that showcase some of Britain’s coolest cities. Pick up some wheels, hit the road and discover how much this country has to offer – you could get lost in a street party, follow in the footsteps of the Beatles or shop up a storm.

 

London

Britain’s buzzing capital has its own brand of gritty cool. It’s mesmerizingly massive, but a hire car makes it easy to hop from world-famous landmarks (Big Ben selfie and ride on the London Eye obligatory) to hip new eateries, art galleries and late-night gigs.
 

Edinburgh

Visit Edinburgh's  honey-coloured streets in August and you might be forgiven for thinking you’re in a fairy tale. Fireworks explode over the dramatic castle and wonderful theatre shows spill into the medieval centre to celebrate the city’s Fringe Festival.


 

Glasgow

Some of Glasgow’s most famous sons are also its funniest. Comedian Billy Connolly is much celebrated by his irreverent home city, where he’s known as Big Yin, but he vies for attention with another icon - the Duke of Wellington, whose otherwise regal statue on Royal Exchange Square is never without its orange traffic cone hat.


 

Manchester

Back of the net! The Northern Powerhouse boasts its own brand of blustering cool, from a hip arts scene and riotous nightlife to the incredible atmosphere that reigns on Derby days, when Manchester United and Manchester City lock horns on the football pitch.

 

Birmingham

Big, bold and unashamed, Birmingham likes a bit of the good life. Start your visit at the iconic Bull Ring shopping centre, then seek out Brum’s alternative side in the vibrant creative quarter, housed in an old custard factory.


 

Belfast

Belfast’s bustling port was the birthplace of the doomed RMS Titanic in 1912. Discover her story at the Titanic Belfast monument, then wander the city’s surprisingly hip streets – the gorgeous botanical gardens and flamboyant Crown Liquor Saloon are must-sees.

Bristol

Welcome to the vibrant heart of the South West. Known for its underground arts scene (it’s home to guerrilla graffiti artist Banksy) and laid back vibe, Bristol is at its very best when thousands of hot air balloons take to the sky over the Suspension Bridge for the annual Balloon Fiesta.

Leeds

Leeds is fast replacing its rough-and-tumble reputation with a slick new vibe, fuelled by bold architecture such as love-it-or-hate-it Broadcasting Tower. Shopaholics should explore the glittering Corn Exchange and history buffs will love the carefully preserved Middleton Colliery railway.


Liverpool

The city that spawned the Beatles moves to its own rhythm. Beatlemaniac? Catch a car to Liverpool, wander down Penny Lane and catch a live show the Cavern Club, the underground joint where John, Paul, George and Ringo made their name.

Cardiff

Friendly, easy-going Cardiff is crowned by two crowd-pleasing jewels – the rugby stadium, filled on with the happy roar of fans on weekends, and the opulent castle, flanked by a wall of bizarre animal statues standing forever on guard.
