The UK has some of the best summer hotspots: fine scenery, culture, history, good food… if only it had the weather behind it I would be itching to go back there more often. You can travel for 2- 3 hours in the UK and you feel like you’re visiting another country. There’s some diversity, so much newness in each place and so much culture to soak up. It truly is a great country — one that will keep feeding you more and more. Here are my 5 favorite hotspots in the UK!
This is the oldest man-made structure and is one of the world’s most famous sights. This Bronze Age monument has a lot of myth and mystery behind it and catching the imagination of many, nobody really knows about its beginnings. It has puzzled generation after generation. During the summer modern day Pagans and Wiccans will gather there amongst other people looking for a spiritual lift. It’s one of my favorite places and is definitely worth a visit.
Have you heard of the Canterbury Tales? Canterbury is a beautiful town in Kent and is one of UK’s most historically significant cities. It’s home to England’s oldest school — the King’s School — and stands as the home of the Anglican church.
Bath is one of my favorite places. I love the Bath stone and the beautiful buildings. Its character speaks to the wealth of Georgian architecture and Roman habitation. It hosts magnificent Roman Baths, the Jane Austen Centre and the beautiful Royal Crescent, which is a row of 30 terraced houses that are slightly curved. It’s one of the greatest examples of Georgian architecture.
Whenever I hear the word “Cornwall” my mouth starts to water because it has me thinking about the delicious Cornish pasties. It has the most breathtaking coastal scenery and landscapes. It’s a great place to go for camping and just to soak in the great outdoors.
This is Cumbria’s largest attraction, situated in the Lake District. It’s England’s largest natural lake and creates a beautiful paradise for you to see.
