Loch Ness and Inverness – spectacular Loch Ness remains an extremely popular tourist attraction for travellers heading to Scotland. One may enjoy the ruins of Urquhart Castle overlooking the loch. Inverness, farther north and home to the Inverness Castle, the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, and the late 19th-century St. Andrew’s Cathedral is also a hot tourist destination and is nearer to the Culloden Battlefield and Visitors Centre, where you can check out the gravestones of warriors from the Scottish clans as well as the six-meter-high Memorial Cairn erected in 1881 to commemorate the battle.
West Yorkshire – Yorkshire is an ideal locale of the new arts trail closely associated with the four leading galleries, namely, The Henry Moore Institute, The Hepworth Wakefield, Leeds Art Gallery and Yorkshire Sculpture Park. The impeccably preserved Victorian village of Saltaire is surely worth a trip. Visitors enjoy the arts centre and independent shopping centres.
Bristol– It’s said that there’s never a bad time to visit Bristol, as there is always plenty to do. The city’s first shipping container park can be found in the new neighbourhood development Wapping Wharf. Here, some of the city’s best bars that provide creative modern beers and restaurants that serve the seasonal and succinct cuisine are found in an idyllic waterside setting. Many of their cool, boutique hotels are also renovated Grade I-listed former boot factories.
Cornwall – A county of contradictions that has both misty cliff tops and sharp, rugged rocks rising out of bounding waves, alongside peaceful coves, sleepy towns and sun-soaked beaches crowded with surfers. There is both myth and mystery in this city where one can go in search of King Arthur at Tintagel’s romantic, clifftop ruin, before travelling along the coast to Boscastle and the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, the world’s oldest and largest collection of items associated with magic and wizardry, home to creepy mirrors, mummified cats, lucky charms and spell-casting stones. One may also choose to wander the causeway out to St Michael’s Mount at low tide and enjoy the outlandish beauty of the Lost Gardens of Heligan and explore the Eden Project with its enormous indoor forests.
Winchester – A day trip destination from London, this pretty cathedral city can entice any newcomer. One might take a short stroll from the train station to discover trendy bakeries, brunch spots, bars and pubs to please your taste buds. The enormous cathedral, the idyllic historic streets, the narrow shopping streets dotted with tasteful boutiques, the ruins of a medieval castle and the River Itchen. The Itchen river flows towards the lush Hampshire countryside.
