Mentioning Britain and Summer in the same sentence often create visions of sunburned people partying to music in the rain and muddy fields. While this may not seem enticing to those from outside of the UK, it is however a wonderful time of the year for us Brits. Especially now, as COVID-19 has halted travelling abroad.
The Office for National Statistics showcases that over 12 million UK residents went abroad last year, so if this is you then perhaps you are wondering what are the best places in the UK to explore this summer.
Let’s get ROAMING.
Croyde, North Devon, England
When we think of beaches and surf in the UK, Croyde’s beach immediately springs to mind. As soon as the car comes around the first corner into this pretty village you are welcomed with beautiful golden sand, great waves for surfing and spectacular scenery. Then, after you have had a day of splashing on factor 50 sun cream and paddling in the sea, there is then the pubs and restaurants you can dive into.
We thoroughly recommend spending an evening in the Thatch. Sunsets here are also worthy competitors for best sunsets around the world. Although, what makes Croyde different to other similar locations around the UK? It’s simply the positive vibes and beauty you immediately feel when you enter this magical location.
Giant’s Causeway, Antrim, Northern Ireland
It’s considered that the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland is the Eighth Wonder of the World. Straight away, this creates a sense of curiosity and obligation to visit this mysterious location. While the Seven Wonders of the Modern World often experience a gigantic number of tourists flocking each year, such as over 10 million people visit the Great Wall of China every year, this wonder however has a much more peaceful and relaxed atmosphere when you visit. This location is therefore a must visit in the summer, due to its outstanding scenery, mysterious geological features and fantastic photography opportunities.
While it can be wonderful escaping to the countryside, for those who enjoy City-Breaks, Newcastle-upon-Tyne is the perfect city to visit. This city oozes vibrancy, diversity, world-class culture, award-winning dining, inspiring heritage, fantastic shopping and elegant architecture. This relatively small city has it all. As soon as you drive past the Angel of the North, you will be hit with a terrific sense of excitement. That’s why this city is a must visit this summer.
Seven Wonders of Scotland’s Walking World
If you have ever wanted to walk through some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes, then Scotland is the place for you this summer.
Whether you want to walk one, two or even all seven walking wonders this summer, each one will leave you speechless. If you could choose only one, Glenfinnan Viaduct Trail would be a superb choice. Especially, as it will satisfy all Harry Potter fans, as this walk allows you to see the railway bridge from the Harry Potter films. You may remember it from the scene when the Weasley’s flying car is being chased by the Hogwarts Express. Arthur’s Seat would be another fantastic choice, as it offers incredible views of the city of Edinburgh.
While this article discusses only four locations in the UK to visit this summer, there are however a vast number of remarkable and beautiful locations you can visit.
