My UK Travel Wish List

I love visiting new places, whether thats abroad or here in the UK. Recently I've done a bit of exploring around places in the UK including Wales and York, and it's made me fall in love with the UK again. Both of these visits were very different, one being a small town by the sea and another being a big city with amazing architecture, however I loved them both. I've decided to create a little UK travel wish list of some of the places I really want to visit in the UK. 

Edinburgh 
I've never been to Scotland and I feel like it's somewhere I need to go and my love for castles draws me to Edinburgh, I also want to make the climb to Arthur's seat, wander around the streets and try a Scottish Whisky. I'd love to be there during the Fringe Festival as well. 

Brighton 
I love the British seaside as much as any European beach and Brighton is a must with the Piers. A visit here with my girls would be a really fun few days, and nights out in Brighton are supposed to be pretty good! Also shopping in all the quirky shops in the Lanes and then finishing it off with an ice cream and a visit to the Pavilion. 

Cambridge
A walk around the University buildings would have to be done when visiting Cambridge, theres so much history and it looks like such a pretty city to wander around. A punt along the river in a boat is also necessary, probably finished off with some food and a drink in a pub. Simple but still perfect.  

Stonehenge
It's a wonder of the world and one of the most famous man made monuments, yet I still haven't been to see it. Although I'm unsure the reasoning behind the circle of stones it is still an amazing piece of history and something that is definitely on my list. 

Cornwall
Beautiful beaches is what Cornwall is known for, and this is what makes me want to visit. I'll be soaking up the sun on the beach as well as taking in the beautiful views from the cliff walks, and maybe attempting a bit of surfing even though we know that won't go well! 

These places are all a bit closer to home than my other Travel Wish List, so hopefully I'll soon be able to tick them off. Where in the UK would you love to visit and what place is your top recommendation?

  2. I really want to go to Edinburgh as well - hopefully will make it to the Fringe and explore one year! I'm doing the same and making my way around the UK at the moment, going to Canterbury and Dover over the long weekend which I'm looking forward to! I loved Brighton, Bristol and North Wales too! :) x

    1. I'm determined to one day make it to the Fringe! That sounds lovely, I love Canterbury, a really pretty city. Brighton would be so fun to visit, and I had a really great time in North Wales, want to go back an explore again.

  3. Your list is almost identical to mine. I desperately want to visit Brighton and Edinburgh and I've been wanting to see Cambridge for a while.
    I went to Stonehenge for my birthday a few years ago. It was actually quite disappointing as it just felt too touristy. I think it would be better to visit during a solstice.
    I've also been to Cornwall but I would love to revisit again and again.

    1. We've clearly got good taste in UK cities haha! I could imagine Stonehenge being really touristy, maybe visiting on a rainy day would be a good option, but would be really cool to go during a solstice.

  4. I too would love to visit Brighton and Cambridge - I can't believe I've never been to either! (especially since I'm pretty close to Brighton)

    You should definitely visit Cornwall in the summer - it's beautiful!
