New year, new me. What is your new year’s resolution? Is it to: cut down on the naughty snacks, put more money into your savings, watch less TV? Whatever it is, we know you should add another to your list. Explore more of the UK!
Firstly, before we go running from Lands’ End to John o’ Groats too quickly; let us take it one-step at a time. Our first stop will be England and its beautiful British countryside, rolling hills and cultural cities. Here are a few locations and cities that we think you should take a trip to in 2020.
It is hard to say which part of Cornwall you should visit, as they are all pretty special in their own way.
You could sit in the Harbour Fish and Chips restaurant in St Ives and indulge in the art scene and picturesque views. Alternatively, you could head to the surfing capital of Newquay and watch the annual surf festival take place on the famous Fistral beach.
The National Trust area of Lizard Point is an area of outstanding beauty. A brisk 50-minute walk away is the stunning Kynance Cove, with its clear blue waters and cosy café that sits in the cliffs.
Whatever you are in the mood for: whether you want to party on through the weekend, explore the historic landmarks or simply relax and have your breath taken away by its stunning beauty. Cornwall has it all.
If you love a bit of history, in particular the Roman Era, then why not head on a trip to Bath?
It is one of the smaller cities in England and the whole of the UK – but there is plenty to see and do!
Named after the famous Roman Baths, the city and its ‘healing waters’ have been welcoming tourists from across the globe for over 2,000 years! The water consists of an incredible 43 different minerals, which curate its healing properties. Visitors of Bath have the unique opportunity to test out the waters at the incredible Thermae Bath Spa, so if you feel you need some healing, whether physical or spiritual, maybe Bath is the place for you!
Centre stage for many of our favourite TV dramas, the Cotswolds, covering almost 800 square miles across 5 counties (Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire) – the Cotswolds boats 38 areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Visit in the winter and you will be able to enjoy crowd free streets and relax around the fire in pubs and hotels, which will have a much lower rate than normal.
If you want to take a trip in the summer – the long evenings will allow you to enjoy the picturesque scenery for just that little but longer.
London is calling. Home to the Royal Family, the Houses of Parliament, Knightsbridge and more, England’s capital is a vibrant, cultural and historic city.
With iconic buildings such as The Shard and Buckingham Palace and with around 170 museums that display fine art, fashion, science and more – London has something for everyone.
If you are looking for a fun filled day out with the family, explore London’s skyline on the Coca-Cola London Eye. Then head over to the FREE Science and Natural History museums to learn about space, dinosaurs and everything in between.
If you want to get cosy with your favourite A-list celebrity, head on down to Madame Tussauds where you can pose alongside the fantastic waxworks of some of the world’s top superstars.
Fancy something a little more relaxing? Enjoy some of London’s beautiful parks. Go for a stroll, a bike ride of simply lay back in bask in the glorious British weather (hopefully it isn’t raining!).
The Lake District is beautiful, and when you visit, you will understand why it is one of England’s protected sites! Filled with tranquil lakes, astonishing mountain ranges and an array of quaint villages to explore. The Lake District is a British masterpiece.
Whether you want to stay in one of the local B&B’s, or camp right by the side of the lake. No matter where you stay, you will be amazed by the incredible beauty and number of things to do.
If you really want to explore the incredible scenes, there is no place better than in the lakes themselves. Grab yourself a canoe (there are plenty of places that offer the facilities and equipment [to purchase or hire]), get your friends and family involved and row your way through the extraordinary mountain ranges.
If hiking is more your thing, you can take a trek up the 978m tall Scafell Pike or its sister mountains. There are also plenty of areas for you to stargaze, have open BBQ’s and trek. Therefore, when we say Lake District has it all, we are not joking!
