The last couple of years have made me realise that the UK has so many lovely places to visit, places I would have previously never considered visiting until I’d heard or read more about them, and places that I never even knew existed. I’ve had a fair few short UK breaks in the past few years including; Llandudno, Newcastle, London, Harrogate, Otley, Northumberland, Cayton Bay and Great Yarmouth (there’s so many more that I’ve definitely forgotten about!). So, I wanted to share with you some more places that I’m eagerly awaiting to visit sometime in the future.
First off, Edinburgh. Along with how beautiful the city itself looks, there are so many sights to see and things to do, I already have a list for when we eventually go (hopefully sometime this year!). Edinburgh Castle, the museums (including Camera Obscura), and the Zoo are the top things on my list. The old-fashioned look of Edinburgh very much reminds me of York, and I’ve also never been to Scotland, so that would be another country ticked off my list I suppose! I’d love to visit the Christmas Market in Edinburgh, there look amazing.
Liverpool is also on my list, well what I mean is that it is on my list, but I’ve actually booked to go here this month..this was a spontaneous stress influenced booking during assessment week! I had never thought about visiting Liverpool until my mum and auntie visited last year, and came back and said Adam and myself would love it, as there was loads of museums, galleries, and amazing attractions, so this was soon added to my list.
Next is Chester. I’ve briefly visited Chester back on a school geography trip, and although we were not here long, and spent the whole time asking people to fill in questionnaires and completing people surveys, I just remember it being a beautiful historic town filled with lovely places to eat and drink. Also, there’s Chester Zoo too, what more could you want!
Again another historic town, Bath. the architecture of Bath amazes me every time I see photos of it. I feel there is so much sightseeing to do here, and the place just looks so cosy, maybe due to its slight similarities with York.
Also I’d love, love, love, to visit the Lake District, specifically Lake Windermere. This caught my eye last year when we were (trying) to book our Sun Holiday. I love the countryside, and going on hikes around mountainous land. Lake Windermere is the largest lake within the Lake District National Park, and there are some great outdoor activities to take part in, including watersports and boating.
The picturesque town of Brighton is, of course, also on my UK travel bucket list. the beach, arcades, and pretty multi-coloured beach-huts you see on photos just has my heart. I wish this place was closer, so I could go on a little day trip here, yet unfortunately it’s at the other side of the country!
Again Dublin was a place I obviously knew existed but hadn’t considered going to up until I realised how amazing places are within the UK. The bars and nightlife, as well as attractions like the Botanic Gardens, Zoo and Guinness Storehouse (even though I don’t even drink the stuff) just look fantastic!
Much like Brighton, I’ve seen and heard so much about the Bournemouth coastline, with the long stretch of beach and the pier. It just looks like a beautiful place in itself, especially on a warm sunny day…which we know are very rare in the UK!
Where else do you think I need to add to my UK bucket list? Where are your favourite places?
