    What a great list of locations and resources.
    Despite living in England, I realised a few years ago that I was spending more time exploring abroad then home so the new years resolution was to pick 10 places I hadn’t visited and go to them – Alnwick Castle (the one from Harry Potter and Robin Hood Prince of Thieves) , York (really liked the viking stuff and the cold war bunker) , Port Merrion (Italy in Wales), Bath, Chatsworth House, Shakespeare’s House, Leeds (really liked the armoury museum) Giants Causeway (there are often really good offers for weekends in Belfast), Hay on Wye ( the town of books) and Glasgow (loved the Necropolis)
    I still haven’t made it to Brighton though which is top of my UK list.

      Oh wow, that is a great list!! Thanks so much for your tips! Often we ‘forget’ about all the incredible places that we can visit close to home, right? While we don’t have a car, we should really figure out rentals or cheap train offers to explore more on the uk. Adding all your tips to our own mental list now :D I think you can spend the rest of your life exploring here, really!

  2. I’ve done a few of the places on the list. I’d like to do Cotswolds really!:) and many more places!

    This is a great list! now if I can only save some money cross that big lake outside, I might be able to visit some of them! haha

  4. Great Britain is a great place to explore with limitless number of wonderful things to do and see…..making a small list of UK attractions to visit is always a tough job …..so, you did not take that job and made a long list of attractions…..I had the chance to visit just a few of these and I will really love to cover them all someday….

    Scientists are still puzzled as to the origins of this prehistoric monument, but I think we all know whodunit .

    I spend all my spare time touring the beautiful British Isles by motorcycle. I have a blog with loads of the photographs I’ve taken on my travels – not always of the most famous places, but places still worth visiting. You can find it at http://mybritishisles.blogspot.co.uk/

  7. This is such a great list – reminds me how many wonderful places to visit there are in the my homeland of the UK! :)

    This is something I really want to do after my around the world trip, make the most of my homeland. We have such amazing things on offer, which I’ve never been to and it’s a shame when things are actually not far away. Saving this list when I’m planning where I want to visit in the UK. Glad to seem my hometown Liverpool make the list.
