Four days might seem short, but in the UK, where it's easy to get around by train, that's plenty of time to see and enjoy more than one city. In this video we follow Jacob and Esther Fu, the dynamic duo otherwise known as Local Adventurer, as they first experience memorable moments in London before taking in the sights of Manchester, only a 2-hour train ride away.

In London, they get the chance to experience world-famous icons like the Coca-Cola London Eye, alongside the capital’s diverse and little-known neighborhoods on a tour with smallcarBIGCITY (guided tours in Mini Coopers), which brings visitors to the "London that Londoners like to see."

In Manchester, they get to immerse themselves in a largely undiscovered, young, vibrant, creative city with stops at the famed Piccadilly Records and The Museum of Science and Industry, among many others, including a chance to sample the delights of the Manchester food scene and a personalized tour of the city with the Manchester Taxi Tour. Don’t underestimate what you can do with limited time!
