6 best places to spend New Year in the UK

A little delayed as I forgot to put this up here with all the Christmas craziness but better late than never – my new article for the National Student! All of these places are still amazing to visit year round, or you know, you can always start planning next New Year’s early. Here’s an excerpt:

“Christmas is almost upon us so it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to ring in the New Year.
