Closer to Home: The Best Places to Visit in the UK

There’s no place like home, which is why your next travel destination should be right within your own country. The UK is full of rich history and vibrant landscapes just waiting to be discovered, which is why we get visitors from all around the world. If you haven’t already dedicated your travels to the United Kingdom, you need to make it your next top travel destination. There is so much to see and do within your own country, and here are a few of the highlights:

Castles

There are hundreds of castles spread across the United Kingdom just waiting for you to discover them. What’s even better is that you can make a road trip of these castles with a pass that allows you to see all the castles that English Heritage, who manage many castles and other top sites like Stonehenge and Charles Darwin’s home, have to offer. Plan a weekend away to see the historic castles and other infamous sites throughout the UK, or even take on a picturesque road trip throughout the United Kingdom.

Roman Remains

Julius Caesar first landed on English shores back in 55BC, and since then the United Kingdom has had a complicated history that mixed the Roman influence with the natives’. You can see Roman influence and even remains in many areas throughout the UK. You can visit the Roman Baths in Bath, you can see Hadrian’s wall, and more. Just as you should go throughout the UK to visit the castles, so too should you go through and see the Roman history that has made the United Kingdom what it is today.

The Beautiful Coasts

When you’re an island nation, you have a lot of coastline. The UK coastline offers some of the most dramatic and beautiful landscapes in the world. There are so many beaches to choose between, from the white cliffs of Dover to the picturesque countryside in Cornwall. As a bonus, there is guaranteed to be a coastline near you, wherever you live in the United Kingdom. Just try to go during the warmer months, as the wind and water can be a tad chilly! 

Stunning Landscapes  

One of the most beautiful landscapes in the United Kingdom is without a doubt, the Lake District. Not only is the Lake District a stunning area to explore, it’s also the perfect getaway from city life. Spend a weekend at a Windermere Boutique Hotel and enjoy the stunning landscapes, quaint villages, and the time away. This is perfect for the romantic getaway that we all desperately need.

There is so much to do and see in the United Kingdom. If you haven’t already explored your home, then you should make it a priority. Not only can you see these great countries of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, you can also help support your local communities. So, get out there, take a drive, and enjoy the picturesque landscapes of the United Kingdom.
