The Jurassic Coast
A World Heritage Site in southern England, the Jurassic Coast is 95 miles of coves, beaches and cliffs that could rival any other coastline on a good day. From East Devon to Dorset, you are treated to spectacular views of the English Channel from spots such as Durdle Door, Golden Cap and Lulworth Cove.
Wales’ highest mountain at 1,085 metres above sea level, the walk up Snowdon is the number on activity when visiting the mountain range. With a variety of paths to take up and down the mountain, you can capture many views of Snowdonia National Park during a walk, with surrounding mountains, lakes and valleys creating the perfect picture.
You might not be familiar with the name, but you’ll most certainly have heard of the location of Urquhart Castle. Sitting beside Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands, the castle dates back to 1509 and offers incredible views of the loch, particularly special at sunset with the ruined and rugged walls of its remains.
40,000 interlocking hexagonal basalt columns make up the Giant’s Causeway in northern Belfast, and the theories of its existence are as magical as its form. Legend has it that the rock formations are the remnants of Irish giant, Finn McCool’s bridge that he built to cross to Scotland, but it could also be the result of an ancient volcanic eruption, if you believe in science.
The pride of North West England, the Peak District is one of the world’s most popular national parks. With picturesque lakes, rugged mountains, market towns, quaint villages and a history of literary influences, it’s well worth the visit to spend a few days in this stunning area.
