Taylor Swift The Eras Tour UK: What to do and where to stay in each city

Simon Calder’s Travel

The Eras Tour is set to sweep sequins across the UK from June – with that comes a swarm of Taylor Swift-centric tourism for four British cities.

With music from albums such as Speak Now, Fearless and her latest record, The Tortured Poets Society, on the set list, superfan ‘Swifties’ are expected to flock to stadiums in Edinburgh, Cardiff, Liverpool and London for the concert of the summer – supported by rock band Paramore.

According to travel search company Kayak, there’s already been a significant increase in flight and hotel bookings to the three capitals and Liverpool. Data collected by the travel search engine found that flight prices have risen by an average of 38 per cent with hotel stays in the UK cities hosting The Eras Tour costing an average £365 per night during the concert dates.

In other ‘Swiftonomics’ news, data released by Barclays predicts that these shows will provide a £997 million uplift for the UK, and research from AirDNA, experts in rental data, said the concerts could add £9 million in cumulative revenue to the short-term rental market.

Here’s what to do and where to stay in each UK city to get your Eras Tour travel plans Ready For It – with plenty of Taylor Swift references to be found below.
