The Most Beautiful Places I’ve Visited in the UK

Greetings Readers!

Welcome back!

Over the past few years I’ve really made it my business to try to explore more of my own proverbial backyard, so to speak. Today I wanted to share some of my favourite places that I’ve visited here in the UK which I think are absolutely beautiful and that you must visit. So today here are my top most beautiful places I’ve visited to date in the UK…

Edinburgh, Scotland

If you like culture, history and beautiful scenery you will love Edinburgh. Edinburgh is a hilly city set upon extinct Volcanos and surrounded by the rolling hills of the Scottish Lowlands. Its heaven for Harry Potter lovers, as J K Rowling took a lot of inspiration for Harry Potter from the winding streets and breathtaking scenery.  There is so much to see and do in this city and so much of it looks as if it’s been taken straight from the pages of a Fairy Tale. From Holyrood Palace and the rolling hills of Arthur’s Seat to Edinburgh Castle this is a city packed with culture and endless photograph opportunities.

Polperro, Cornwall

Polperro is one of the many harbour villages that make up the coastline of South East Cornwall. This was one of the most beautiful harbours I’ve ever visited with quaint winding roads, quirky shops and of course the beautiful harbour with its colourful boats. It’s especially beautiful in the Summer during Regatta Festival Season, this is also a great spot to visit if you are looking for a pet friendly holiday as so many of the shops, pubs and restaurants are dog friendly.

Little Venice, London

If you are looking to see some of the famous sights of London in a different way, you simply have to make a trip to Little Venice. Little Venice is one of the most stunning spots of the London waterways. It’s the hotspot for many old canal boats and there is a bridge that takes you across the canal which is perfect for taking photos. If you can I would especially recommend taking a boat trip on one of the many boat tour companies through Little Venice to Camden Locke which will take you through some beautiful parts of London’s waterways such as St John’s Wood, Primrose Hill and Paddington.

I’ve made a promise to myself, every week I’m going to make it my goal to visit somewhere that I have never been before. Whether it be a National Trust location, a museum in London or a destination further afield. I want to see more of this planet we call home. I said in one of my previous YouTube videos I want to visit as many places as I can and document them online. My disability can sometimes be difficult to negotiate travel, but the end result means I’ve visited another part of the world. I’ve reached another milestone and checked off another place on my list. I feel that I owe it to you all to document my travels. Especially as so many of you tell me that having a disability means you are apprehensive to travel to new places. I want to help others gain the confidence to explore and visit new places, it’s such a rewarding thing to do everyone should have the chance to explore and go on adventures. I made a start by visiting Edinburgh last month and recently finally taking a canal boat ride through Little Venice to Camden in the fall. This week I have a special weekend trip planned for me and my mum. But who knows after that, there’s a lot of places in the world. Plenty more for me to visit. Where do you want to visit? . . . .

Kew Gardens, London

Another one of my favourite spots in London is Kew Gardens, if you like horticulture you must visit Kew Gardens. Kew Gardens is a 30 minute train ride from London, situated by the river it’s teaming with different gardens to explore and many greenhouses bursting with plants and blooms from all corners of the Globe. No matter what time of year you go Kew Gardens will a no matter what season.

Alnwick, Northumberland

If you are looking for a quiet, tranquil getaway Alnwick is a must! Situated in the rolling hills of Northumberland, Alnwick is a quiet little town not too far from the Northumberland coastline. Nearby you have some beautiful attractions including Alnwick Castle which served as the backdrop for Hogwarts in the first Harry Potter film and the beautiful Alnwick Garden which is beautiful all year round with a variety of seasonal plants on offer.

Windenmere, The Lake District 

Windenmere is one of the most famous parts of the Lake District, best known for being the home of poet William Wordsworth and children’s author and artist Beatrix Potter. Windenmere has some of the most breathtaking views I have ever seen, one of my favourite places to visit was the little town of Bowness and nearby the farm of Hiltop Farm which served as writing residence to Beatrix Potter. This is definitely a place for people who want tranquility and who love the great outdoors. Hikers and walkers will find this place abundant in places to explore.

  • Stratford Upon Avon
  • Oxford
  • Knole Park, Sevenoaks
