Me and a friend want to go to an abandoned buildings exploration holiday. I was wondering what parts/cities in the UK would be best to use as a home base? With some sites around it?
Edit: this would be in the summer or whenever coronavirus is less of a worry.
thanks!

I hate to think how many newbies come on here asking the same question. My answer is do what every one else does a Google it. Don't expect people to just tell you, some might that is their prerogative but people put a lot of hard work into finding places so just telling you where to go kind of defeats the object of Urban Exploring.
Welcome to the Forum by the way look at the other posts and you might come up with an idea as to where is best.

All depends on which part of the country you're in. I could recommend somewhere but it might be too far for you to travel.

The north deffo seems more fruitful in my opinion. Yorkshire area seems pretty good from the reports I see.
Check out the different reports and get a feel of what areas pop up the most :)

It really depends what you're interested in. For example, in the past some areas like Glasgow, Sheffield and Stoke were good for derelict industry and Lincolnshire was good for old airfields. Things change though, so as others have said, decide what you'd like to see eg. abandoned castles, and search forums, Flickr and Facebook/ YouTube to see what others have been visiting...

Sorry for the edits and deletions but you cannot be putting your personal details in open chat, personal email and phone numbers will always be deleted if I see them.
Also asking directly for information is against the forum rules.

Please refrain from doing this again or the ban hammer will be coming out.

Sorry if that sounds harsh but it's in everyone's interest not to put phone numbers and such for all to see.
