Many people living in the UK venture abroad on their holidays and often forget about the many beautiful locations around the UK. We want to share with you some of our favourite hotspots around the UK.
Starting in the south of the UK you might stumble across a little secluded beachy area in Dorset called Durdle Door. To step foot on the shingle beach you have to follow a steep path and steps over the hill from Lulworth Cove. Known for its excellent water quality, it’s well worth a little dip in. I would urge you to make time to explore this area, commonly known as the Jurassic Coast as you might even find some fossils to take home as a souvenir.
Rising 20 metres from the earth near Gateshead, you would not believe your eyes seeing this huge angel dominating the skyline – not a supernatural monster but a massive steel angel. Something that large and happens to have a wingspan of 54 metres and there’s a moment when you don’t realise what you are viewing – something hard to be forgotten!
Where best to get a selfie than with a bunch of rocks – the Callanish Stones! Most people don’t know what to expect at first, you may think you have stepped back a couple centuries but then you will realise what a massive landmark these are and a major part of the Scottish heritage. You will hear many tales from the locals about the rocks being giants back in the day. There are plenty of really unique little wool shops if you need to purchase some wool for the colder seasons.
If you have always wanted to cross the waters to visit Northern Ireland now is your time. There is a little ropey bridge over there and if you are a dare devil you will definitely want to venture across it. It’s named Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bride, and on it you can take a deep breath and take in the stunning views of Rathlin and the Scottish Islands.
These are some of our favourites, it doesn’t mean that these are the only ones worth mentioning – quite the opposite – there’s so many things to see in the UK – it’s up to you to explore.
