Step 1: Make yourself a hot drink, turn away from that rainy window, put your best thinking cap on and boot up your computer.
Step 2. Take a look at a map of the UK, let’s pick a place and find out more. We’ll start with England. England is perfect for walking, with its rolling hillsides. See all those heavy green parts? They’re forests. Deep, wonderful, exciting close-to-nature forests and reserves. Just waiting to be explored and documented by yours truly.
The Top 5 biggest forests in England are listed below. Each one has a different appeal; waterfalls, lakes, largest collection of oak trees, etc. Once you have decided which one you want to visit, jot it down.
|Kielder Forest Park||Northumberland, England|
|New Forest||Hampshire, England|
|Thetford Forest Park||Norfolk/Suffolk, England (Yes it’s so big it stretches across TWO counties)|
|Forest of Dean||Gloucestershire|
Step 3. Now it’s Wales’s turn. Surrounded by water on three of its sides, Wales has some of the most beautiful coastal towns and scenic views going. There are also several picturesque climbing and hiking routes. A great place to start would be to choose the part of the coast you are closest to: from the south it’s best to visit Cardiff, the Capital of Wales—an amazing city with a busy port – and it even has its own castle! From the north, you can head to Anglesey, a perfect island off the north-west coast of Wales, jam-packed with things to do and places to stay. Visit Anglesey has more information for you to browse but don’t go getting distracted! We’ll just pop it into a new tab for you to come back to later… once you’ve finished reading this piece.
Step 4. You should have a pretty good idea of your travel list by this point as well as the route you’re going to be taking through the UK. Hopefully you’ll travel near the southern part of the country, lapping up the city sights and doing the typical touristy things. But if tourist spots aren’t your cup of tea, here are a few suggestions for some quirkier travel spots.
Historic Ships? Yep, they have a whole museum devoted to them.
Predatory birds? Sure, why not? Get up close and personal.
Brewery Tour. Not your average day out and definitely one to leave the car at home for…
Step 5. Finish up in Scotland. With its sprawling landscapes and bustling historic towns, Scotland is not only the perfect camping country, it also offers so many great budget accommodation venues that are reviewed and rated regularly, putting Edinburgh and Glasgow’s hotels at the top of the awards list year after year. It’s not hard to stay out of the rain and wind, as Scotland has some fantastic pubs and restaurants you could spend all day in! Check Tripadvisor for the top 10 rated eateries in the city of your choice and make a list from there.
Step 6. You’re done! You now have a wonderful list of all the places you’re going to travel to this season.
